"Misfits: Episode #1.1" (2009)
8 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The first episode of Misfits came across as a typical E4 show at first. It had nice pacey editing, cool foul mouthed kids, and hip indie music. Luckily none of this was overdone in a Skins/Hollyoaks kind of fashion. The show starts quickly by introducing us to the protagonists getting ready for community service. Instantly, these are people we shouldn't particularly like, but they are fairly humorous. It isn't long before giant blocks of ice are raining down and smashing everything in sight. After they're hit by lightning Kelly begins to read minds. This ties in with her character (as do all the revealed powers), as she is worried what others think of her. It leads to a lot of comedy in the episode, especially when she reads her dog's mind, which is voiced perfectly by Phil Daniels. Unfortunately, the storm has affected their probation officer too and it has amplified his rage towards "scum". He soon becomes very dangerous. This was an excellent first episode. It juggled the themes and tones perfectly. It presented the characters as simple stereotypes, but hinted at complexity which would no doubt be developed upon throughout the series. It also leaves the characters in a dangerous position, but one where we are totally on their side, but also feel for the others they have to face. Had me hooked.
