Misfits was one of those programs destined to fade, helped along by the untimely death of Dean Paul Martin, the actor portraying the show's driving character, Billy.
Almost a satire of comic-book concepts such as the X-Men, the show revolved around a government-funded "weird science" shop called Humanadyne and a group of teenagers with exceptional powers gathered together by Dr Billy Hayes, who had the idea originally to start a basketball team with them.
The show featured such topics as synchronicity, paranormal phenomena, and alternate universe theories in a vaugely x-filesesque manner. For a comedy program it was far ahead of its time, making use of science fiction concepts, without making light of them.
Coming on the heels of the box-office-smash Ghostbusters, Misfits was designed to appeal to the same audience, with the same style of humor, a task it excelled at.
This show desperately deserves to be released, in it's entirety, on videotape.
