MISFITS Series 3 Episode 3 Review

MISFITS Season 3 Episode 3 – When Misfits first began it was hailed and adored for completelyundermining the superhero genre and subverting it, turning the heroes into foul mouthed, filthy convicts with few morals and with absolutely no intention to make the world a better place. This season Misfits goes back to its roots: every episode explores a different Misfit. The mythology is deeper and the consequences and relationships and motives are stronger because the show is in its third year.

Now, I like serialized show. It’s what draws me to Breaking Bad and Mad Men, and what makes me put on a movie instead of trekking through a series of Law and Order. Misfits has pretty much become a procedural with a slant and a flavour of predictability and while I wish the show was more serialized, it’s still really entertaining. This episode focused on Simon’s relationship with a corrupting kid who idolizes superheroes. I feared for a while that Misfits was about to rip off Kick Ass or Super, but it did a solid job steering clear of those recent movie conventions. Read More...
