Save me, Barry!!! Rewatch of Misfits!!  
Right then!  Son and I have begun the rewatch. [dreamwidth.org profile] further is with us, I hope. So far we've been through season one. So, what's the word?

Spoilers like whoa below!

Son says that the characters are getting their powers depending on their personality. I think he's right.

Alicia wants to be seen, wants to be wanted; whenever someone touches her they get crazy with lust.

Simon -poor sod- also also wants to be seen. He feels invisible, no one has ever noticed him. His power is to turn invisible. He can se them but they can't see him. And what he sees, he can use agaisnt them. Good? Bad? Depends on from where you're watching.

Curtis's situation is pure Sofokles. He tries to change destiny but what happens? Complete and utter fail. No matter what he does, it always ends up the same or worse.

Kelly wants to know what people actually think about her, and thus she gained the power to read other people's minds. Does that gain her any favours? Yes and no. She gets to know what peole think about her but more often than not the truth hurts. She does have a killer headbutt though.

Nathan thinks he is God's gift to mankind and feels immortal. Due to this, he becomes immortal when the storm hit, although he doesn't find out until he actually dies and wakes up in a coffin. I miss Nathan. The  series sort of died when he left.

The message of this tale? Well it could be that whatever you do, whatever you try, you'll always end up where you began. Sofokles, right! You cannot escape destiny. Aside from that; it's an awesome tale. It's brutal and raw, in a way that no HW-show has it.  Think Sofokles! Destiny! Fate!!

Simon and the probation-worker; it's such a sad tale of loneliness. Simon wants to have 'someone' and he thinks he's gotten someone. When it turns out aht he's been used, the ugly truth that Simon is s right psychopath shows. Why is he having tea with his dead p-worker, with her propped up in the freezer? Right!

There is much to analyse here, son and I have only scratched the surface. As Kelly says; Come on you wankers!!  Let's have it!!!

Son says FML!!!!! He can't stand my misspellings :) He's also gotten all ethymological on me. The word community; it's derived from common and unity he claims. The thought is very much logic, we haven't checked it, but if you do; please let us know if he's right.
He has also cracked the mystery of why people spell like to god-forbid on the net. It's because they lack rhythm and pacing in the key-pressing or that they have malshaped/misformed keyboards.

As it is; I'll say FML as well. We're getting on to season two tomorow. Discussions are encouraged and looked forward to.

Nighty night, everybody.

Save me, Barry!

Yikes!! Watch it before you say that!

LOL, I think it's funny that Nathan REALLY thinks Simon's name is Barry. Like pretty much convinces himself by the end. I love Nathan AND Simon. I don't really know what I think of the others, though Kelly always made me grin with her tough ways.

Who's your fave?

Nathan is such an egomaniac! Nathan's way, no highway option.

Speaking of characters; Simon is high on the list, Nathan too. We trudged on through season three without Nathan but after that it was over. All time fave though is Kelly. Mainly because she's a badass and I can't understand half of what she's saying. That dialect!
We jumped ship after the episode in season four. That was bad!! Save me, Barry!

I was so sad that they constantly changed characters. Blah. I miss Nathan like so much and Kelly too, Simon I miss but not without the others, you know. I think if the others weren't there and Simon still was, it wouldn't be the same. Some of the new characters, um I like Rudy? Took me a while to warm up to him because I just wanted to hate him, because Nathan and Simon had gone and I never really liked Alicia much, so I didn't care that she went in the end-I'd rather stick to the earlier seasons and pretend there's no others now, you know?

The show half-died when Nathan left. I cannot stand Rudy.We're doing the same, rewatching the first seasons :)
