  • Almost Famous...

    9.0
    Another fab instalment of Misfits, in this episode the probation worker reveals to the media that our misfits have 'super powers'. The 5 are approached are by an agent and all accept her offer of fame and fortune except Simon. During this episode Alisha finally confesses to Simon that he was the guy in the mask, and that he died so they could be together etc. etc.

    Probably the most imaginative 'villain' that I have seen for a while with the power of'lactokinesis'. Lacto Kid seeks revenge on everyone for replacing him as he is dropped by his agent when people with 'better' powers are revealed. You regret that cheese and yogurt you ate earlier...

    The conclusion, like several used in this series is that Curtis rewinds time to fix it all, other than this Misfits continues to be contemporary, humorous with original characters and storylines. Now the misfits have finished community service what will be installed for them now....Christmas, perhaps?moreless
  • The Dairy of a Whimpy Kid...

    9.0
    A superb ''what if'' tale with a Misfits twist, the penultimate episode to one of the best TV shows around offers up more laughs, mayhem and bonkers story-lines...I think Lactose-kinesis just about eclipses Kelly's monkey business from last week.



    It was obvious to anyone starting out that this was all just a trial run. The second Curtis mentions that he's lactose intolerant it was game over. Some viewers were understandably miffed by the whole reset button, but I figure that's mostly down to US shows (and Doctor Who) excessive use of the reset button just for the sake of shaking things up. That may still be the case with Misfits, but when it's this finely tuned, this funny and entertaining, who cares? It was still a story well told at the end of the day.



    It's not entirely perfect, mind you. Because this was mainly a trial run, certain killer moments are overlooked. Simon finding out about his future under the cover antics with Alisha is questionably underplayed, but since Curtis turned back time, we'll have to go through all of it again anyways, so hopefully we'll get the emotional fireworks I think fans deserve.



    There are still a few whopping jaw-droppers though: Kelly showing up in the locker room warning Nathan that Curits was walking into a trap, only to discover that she's dead was a total WTF moment. Likewise, the way Milky uses his powers to put Nathan in a vegetative state highlights how this show can take the most ludicrous of ideas and milk them for some serious drama.



    And just when you think this show can't get any crazier...''I'm going to kill Jesus.''moreless

    • Most of the events of this episode have never happened in the actual timeline since Curtis rewound time and prevented the Misfits to become famous at all. This means that Alisha was never interviewed on TV, yet future Simon has footage of that interview on his PC.

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Kelly: How did they find out about us?
      Nathan: What? No, I didn't do anything. I don't think I did. I'm almost certain I didn't.

    • Nathan: I'm not saying we have, but what would happen, hypothetically speaking, if it came to light that we may have killed one or two people? Probation workers and such. No one important.

    • Nathan: Sorry I'm late. I was just enjoying the fruits of our new-found fame and celebrity. You know I'm not actually talking about fruit. Although you should see the size of my fruit bowl. Massive!

    • Kelly: I shagged a monkey.
      Nathan: Technically, it was a gorilla.

    • Nathan: Were you one of those fat kids who had milk seeping out of his man boobs during puberty?

    • Nathan: I saw what you did with the guy in the wheelchair. That's like curing two normal people. Double points.

    • Nikki: Is it true you shit yourself when you die?
      Nathan:That only happened the once. And I've got a bucket standing by, just in case.

    • Curtis: I'm lactose intolerant.
      Nathan: Does that mean you're afraid of cows?

    • Nathan: You know, apart from all the killing and the dying and stuff, this community service really wasn't as bad as I thought it was gonna be.
