Misfits airs on E4 in an hour-and-a-quarter, the new original superhero drama, that mixes excellent swearing, with disenfranchised ‘yoot’ of tabloid headlines and a shooting style that looks better than Heroes, Watchmen and Smallville on a far far smaller budget. Watch for the lightning scene, it’s stunning.
For those who miss it, it’s repeated an hour later on E4+1, and available on the 4oD download service immediately after airing. And, for those not fortunate to live in the UK tonight, on Pirate Bay a couple of hours afterwards. Oh shush, Channel PR people, it will be and you know it.
I’ve been telling people what an impressive first episode this is. And will be watching the Twitterati as it airs. Including one Twittee, kellymisfits, one of the characters in the show who will be twittering her thoughts as it airs.
Kellymisfits only has 125 followers on Twitter right now. Let’s see if we can up that a little bit, eh? This is her current twitstream…
