This is the first ten minutes of the first episode of “Misfits,” a British show that debuted on Channel 4 last month. It’s kind of like NBC’s “Heroes,” except with a Breakfast Club premise and swearing. From Wikipedia:
Misfits follows five teenagers on community service who get struck by lightning and are given special powers. Kelly (Lauren Socha) becomes telepathic, Curtis (Nathan Stewart Jarrett) can rewind time by small amounts, Alisha (Antonia Thomas) can send people into a sexual frenzy when they touch her skin, Simon (Iwan Rheon) can make himself invisible when he feels he’s being ignored. Seemingly left unaffected is smart alec Nathan (Robert Sheehan).
This looks outstanding to me, but mostly because everyone talks like Jason Statham and there’s a sexy black girl. Oh, I’m sorry, did I say “sexy black girl”? I meant, “Oi fink dat black bird’s right fit, now innit?”
