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.

1764. I do not understand why people are bitching towards the fans that do not feel the need to watch the new season. Three of the five original cast members are gone, the third season was terrible and filled with loopholes and fillers, can you blame us? The show stopped being what it originally was the second the entire cast got new powers.

Welp…

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.

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.

1648. I’m currently re-watching the show and I’ve realized that Nathan really wasn’t all that much better than Rudy even though they are so different.

I don’t agree with this, but I can dig it. Rudy lost all appeal when he sexually assaulted Girl!Curtis while she was drugged and passed out. Yeah, say what you will about Nathan, but he wasn’t that kind of asshole. Sorry.

There’s a lot about Rudy that was off putting from the very first ep & their attempts to cram him down viewer’s throats really didn’t help. At least with Nathan we got some back story to explain why he had issues. Rudy just comes off as a whiny little shit head with no home training.

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.

1613. I think Antonia decided to jump ship, then Iwan. I can’t blame Antonia either. Overman’s writing was shit for her character.

I do wonder (given how often it has been mention that they are good friends), if it was a mutual decision presented to the writers before the filming of S3. That’s the only reason I can see for the inexplicable focus on everything but their backstories this last season. Even the ep that was about Simon wasn’t really about him so much as it was about setting up the story to explain the continuation of the loop.

misfitsconfessions

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.

1577. I don’t understand how it makes me a “bad fan” if I don’t want to watch Misfits next season because Antonia and Iwan left. The reason why I loved the show was because I loved the dynamics that the original Asbo 5 had together. With Robert leaving it was sort of admissible because I do like Joe’s character to some capacity but Antonia and Iwan means that only two of the original cast members are left and I love Lauren and Nathan, but I feel like what made the show so wonderful is now lost.

I find it hilarious that people think being a good fan includes watching a show after the producers have completely changed the cast & thus the show dynamics. Not to mention no one owes a TV show a damned thing, including their time or attention.
