Those in the UK are already enjoying season 3, which began airing on channel E4 at the end of October; and, as I posted last week, the third season of the quirky, vulgar, smart teen dramedy Misfits will premiere on Hulu for stateside fans of the series on December 19 (a Monday), with all new episodes every Monday.
Although I believe some of you Stateside have found ways to watch season 3 via online channels, ahead of its official USA debut; and if you have, or if you're in the UK, then this E4 exclusive online mini-episode, which aired last night on the network's website, should interest you.
In the mini-episode, which is apparently only available on the web for UK audiences (I tried watching it and it said as much), the gang of misfits finally discover the identity of the mysterious Erazer character who has been tagging the estate.
WARNING: Spoilers ahead...
Until now, the name "Erazer" had been seen in the Misfits universe many times, but only in graffiti; and in this webisode, which aired immediately after the airing of episode 6 last night (in the UK), Erazer's identify is revealed; he's a man who has the power to bring to life anything he paints with graffiti. He also has an alternate or "parallel" universe covered in graffiti spelling out his name. In this universe, he created Suzy, someone he claimed was in love with him.
Again, this mini-episode is only available online to UK audiences, though I'm guessing it's only a matter of time before someone is able to extrace it and upload to video sharing sites like YouTube for the rest of the world to see; it may already be there!

I do wish some TV network would pick up the series officially. Hulu is cool, but it's Hulu. This could air on a cable TV channel, not-so unlike Luther, and other British TV series that have traveled west.
I'm guessing that the possibility of an American remake may have something to do with that...
