1751. Well, I was right. Alisha’s death was all about Simon’s man pain. How horrible that was for Alisha wasn’t explored at all.

I still need to know why Alisha never really got an ep that was about her & her feelings.

1759. I’m pissed that Simon’s precognition power activated for Rudy’s STD adventure but not Alisha’s death. Even if he had been shown one possible future and his attempt to change that got her killed it would have made sense. His power was worthless.

misfitsconfessions:


The fact that he could see everything but the important stuff & that her power was basically useless all season are a large part of why I’m pretty much done with the show. I didn’t need her to stay alive or for Simon not to go back, but the show absolutely needs to have some kind of internal consistency to be worth watching.

1644. How do ppl know for a fact that both Antonia and Iwan decided to leave the show? Since the revelation came about that Superhoodie was Future Simon (in S2) and he told her that he went back in time for her b/c she dies, I think it was pretty much a done deal. It was gonna happen. They could’ve dragged it along all the way, but they were going to have to fulfill that prophecy and have Alisha die. It had nothing to do with the actors lol.

misfitsconfessions:


They’ve both been clear for a while now that they were looking to capitalize on the attention they got from Misfits & use that boost to open up other avenues. Frankly I’m surprised any of the original cast is left for season 4.

1621. Rewatching 2.04 I can’t help thinking that Simon began to regret his decision to put them into a timeloop. He more or less begs Alisha not to tell his younger self who he is.

I did wonder why he didn’t just go back & warn them about the ghost with the boxcutter. That would have made more sense than recreating the loop.

1628. Simon had a compulsion for keeping things frozen in time. He had that butterfly collection, all his voyeur video recordings, then Sally in the freezer, and finally Alisha in time.

1605. Seems like my old question is left up to personal perspective. Was the future Superhoodie guided them down worth it? Neither he nor Alisha survive it. All his friends do, but he chooses to stay in the loop with the woman he loves rather than leave her. Is that romantic or sad? Or is Curtis right and its both?

misfitsconfessions:


Actually I think it’s kind of foolish. But I don’t subscribe to the loop being inevitable & unbreakable theory.

1590. It’s really annoying that Alisha and Simon (especially Alisha!) was shoved to the background instead of giving them some plot to make their departures more emotional. Instead of getting bullshit about Rudy’s cock, boring-ass Seth, and one-episode characters, we should’ve been getting stuff on Alisha, the Simon/Alisha relationship, and a build-up to the end of their stories. How frustrating.

misfitsconfessions:


Yes. I just watched the last ep & for an entire season to be scripted to end this way I feel like the writing choices blunted the impact of what was meant to be a powerful story.

1320. If you think about it, Alisha really kinda did get her own episode because in episode 3 she kinda saved the day. But I can also see the argument that episode 3 was more Simon heavy.

misfitsconfessions:


But that ep was just about saving Simon. We barely got anything about Alisha’s life out of it & the little bit we did get was her pain & fear at the prospect of losing Simon. I’m all for the one true love thing, but Alisha had a whole life before she got community service. Where’s the follow up to that? We see Curtis post girlfriend & post running career, we saw why Nate’s a mess, we saw Kelly’s ex as well as the girl she had a fight with, hell we even got to see Simon show up the kid that picked on him with the social worker. The closest Alisha’s gotten has been brief moments in eps about other people.

1302. I’m so annoyed that Alisha didn’t get her own episode this series. It feels like the writers have forgotten her and just linked her with Simon for everything. Curtis, Rudy and Kelly all got their own episodes this series and Simons is next week - the last episode. Even Seth got his own episode.
