Bitchy, foul- mouthed, obnoxious, scatalogical, obscene, gross, offensive... Yes, we just raided our thesaurus to sum up this brilliant little E4 show, and much like Misfits itself, we regret nothing. Sure, it was designed to shock – and shock it did, in ways ranging from bloody deaths to bizarre sex scenes – but mostly Misfits was a plea from the oddball members of the younger generation to have their voices heard, and f ** k you if you don’t listen. In short, these guys were council estate X- Men with Asbos and bad attitudes. And they were fabulous.
