Misfits
« on: December 17, 2011, 10:13:03 PM »
I watched this show on my Apple TV from BBC America. It's hilarous and I find myself wondering how long till a tame/vanilla version of this makes it's way to the US.

The nutshell synopsis is 5 20-somethings in London who are on community service and get struck by lightning in a freak storm. And gain superpowers (of a sort). The socially awkward guy who turns invisible. The Cav girl who reads minds. The party girl who induces hypersexual frenzy to anyone she touches. The would be Olympian who turns back time when he experiences regret (which made breaking up with one girl REALLY amusing) and the smart mouthed Irish guy who spends most of the first season trying to get his powers.

Darn, my mind took me back to the 80s when I read this title.



Bad girls from the Jem cartoon.

there has been word of a US version being in the works.
The internet is not happy and my email inbox was flooded with my friends begging me to sign online petitions to keep a US version from happening.

I really hope that it doesn't happen and end up being the like the US version of Being Human. *gag*

It's a brilliant show.  One of my favorites--and yeah, a US version would be an awful mistake.

Somehow I doubt they (the studio execs) would allow anything less than the 'prettiest' thugs they can find.

Just got the season ticket for season 3.. got to see what happened to the mouthy Irish guy..there is NO WAY you'd see that on an American Channel.. (except maybe HBO/SHOWTIME or such)

Though I got to admit the lines in the series are a hoot at times.

I just watched the first three episodes.  I miss the curly headed guy--Can't remember his name?!--but the new guy is even more hilariously crass and crude.  Not a show to watch with the kids.  :P

Right...Nathan...He was great.

Can't wait for the next episode.  We still have to listen closely to understand half of what Kelly has to say though...her accent is sooooo hard for me.

She has the BEST lines in the series.

I've had a couple people tell me about this show already... I think I'll have to look for it. It sounds hilarious. You can get it on Apple TV? Cool.

Now I need to figure out how to work that thing. Mutters about too many remote controls in this damn house!

Well, yes. It is a sleek little thing, isn't it?  But that makes everything more difficult!  No power button. How do you turn it on?  How do you turn it off?? So complicated, all those flipping menus.  Just make a damn power button, sheesh. And I have to scroll through 8 different AV input modes to find with one is the Apple TV...

This is why I don't watch TV.  Forget it.  I'm just going to look it up online.

It turns off after a bit automatically, or you can put it in sleep mode (on the settings tab). After a time it will shut down.

Turning on is easy. Push the play button on the remote.

One of the reasons I got my TV was I can push the HDMI button between the 3 HDMI channels wihtout anything else. SO I push play (watching for the white light) then after about 5 seconds pick up the TV remote and push HDMI to '2' and there it is.

Remotes are paradoxially getting more difficult so I keep a saddle bag by my desk to hold the 3 I use. TV, Apple TV and Cable Box.

Heh...we have a receiver with the TV, Wii, Xbox, Playstation and computer all hooked up to it.  We use the Xbox as our main netflix and Hulu2 controller.  And we've lost the remote for our TV--so we have to figure out the menu commands by using the little buttons on the screen.   We don't have cable, though and there's no broadcast TV so we never change the TV setting--it's always just displaying whatever the receiver tells it to.  My 9YO regularly helps me figure out how to make things work.  :P
