When Nathan is at the bowling alley his stance, licking of the ball and the backing music are an almost exact copy of a scene in The Big Lebowski, in which Jesus Quintana a known pervert bowls a strike to the disgust of the main characters. See more »


When Curtis takes out his jacket to help Kelly for the second time in the episode, he first takes out the money from his pocket and he then bites them, in order to free his hands. The money changes orientation, as the folded part is first looking towards his mouth, then towards the camera! See more »

"Misfits: Episode #1.4" (2009)
10 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This time it's time to focus on Curtis and his ability to travel in time. Curtis' power works differently to some time travel, he can only do it under times of extreme stress. This is the perfect power for Curtis as he lives in the past and dreams of his past glory. In this episode he runs into his ex-girlfriend, who went to prison for the same drug bust that got him banned from athletics. He feels bad for ruining her life, as she went to jail, and so ends up travelling back to the incident. Like al great time travel stories, he realises the many negatives of changing the past, as he makes things worse in the future and has to try again. During this time, we also see the back stories for other characters, the best one being Nathan's. It turns out his story of being done for eating pick and mix, wasn't such a lie after all. It gives us a glimpse into his personal life with his father, brilliantly played by Dexter Fletcher. Simon also has an emotional moment where we really feel for him, but once again we are conflicted by his creepier side. I'm not usually a big fan of alternate reality episodes, but the episode makes the clever decision to end in a happy medium, which also leaves for more, though slightly more humorous, problems for Curtis. Each of the different timelines has an awesome Run Lola, Run feel. Each being fast paced with plenty of tension. Nathan's sections are hilarious, and Robert Sheehan should be commended for an incredible performance that makes a rather likable and funny guy, out of such an ass.
