Seems like all the good shows worthy of viewing these days come from Great Britain. Adding to that growing list is the popular series the Misfits.
A description for the series states... "the BAFTA Award-winning series centers around a group of juvenile delinquents who are forced to do community service. During one of their duties, a freak storm occurs and gives each of them a super power. But these kids are your regular run-of-the-mill heroes. They're given powers not of their choosing and don't necessarily know how to control their power. The group tries to deal with their new powers, friends, relationships and someone how come together and defect evil."
Now that's an interesting take...superpower delinquents!
The show stars Lauren Socha, Robert Sheehan, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Antonia Thomas and Iwan Rheon.
Hulu has signed an agreement for the first two season along with the yet-to-air third season. While most U.K. series productions find distribution on U.S. networks like BBC America, PBS and Showtime, Misfits most likely couldn't find a home due to the show’s quirky balance between genres, graphic language and content. Apparently, it's a very racy show.
Below is a trailer and episode one. Thanks to Emmanuel for the tip!
