you haven't even got a beard!  
I watched like 90% of the Misfits Christmas special on a live stream, but only just managed to catch the last five-ish minutes.

LOL this episode... Someone on ONTD was like "this is ridiculous" but I pointed out that it is significantly less ridiculous than Kelly having sex with a gorilla. I enjoyed this episode way more though. I think the concept of someone buying and selling powers was an interesting one and that Jesus was a great way to show the ~dangers of exploiting something like that.

I was sort of WTFing at Alisha, though. I can sympathize with Alisha wanting to get rid of her power but I could not for the life of me figure out why she was so desperate to have Simon sell his. Why? It doesn't adversely affect his life and he seems pretty chill with it. Her need to be part of a ~normal couple~ (GIRL HE HAS TO TIME TRAVEL IN THE FUTURE HOW NORMAL DO YOU THINK IT'S GONNA GET?) got Nikki killed, man. I can understand Kelly and Nikki selling their powers, too, since they affect their quality of life, and I can totally buy Nathan being oblivious enough to sell his for nothing on a whim, but I don't know how Curtis was talked into it, I mean he literally just saved all their lives (okay, 3 months earlier) and he's done it a billion times before, how did he not think that was handy to have around? So when, after Nikki died, they were all "I COULD HAVE STOPPED THIS" I was like "yeah you could've, the fuck were you guys thinking?"

ALSO Alisha it is super uncool to lie about ~future Simon~ omg this is why timey-wimey relationships are bad, kids. I also thought it was weird that the show didn't... show us any of that, like it was just "THREE MONTHS LATER they're in a relationship and he knows about his future self and who is paying for this rad but unfurnished apartment???" I dunno man.

Jesus abusing Alisha's power was creepy as fuck though. Now that he's dead is that power dead with him? That would be good, there's only so much you can do with one character being cursed like that. Hopefully she winds up with something more badass in s3. I guess Simon's will have something to do with time travel?

I found Marnie pretty funny. "You don't even have a beard!" lol lol. I wonder if she will be sticking around? I am not sure how long she can continue being interesting, and a baby seems like it would really, um, cramp the style, but we'll see I guess.

And of course I wonder what sort of powers everyone will end up with. TBQH Nathan should take his immortality back or he's fucked. I am guessing Simon has something to do with time travel...? I have no idea about Kelly, Alisha or Curtis though. AND... are we ever going to hear about Nikki again? Or is Curtis just conveniently over that? Because... what.

IDK. I guess all my questions will be answered in like... a year. Britain, what the hell. I am too impatient for this tomfoolery.

LOL I am commenting to say that I might actually consider watching this series to see the scene that is in your icon so I can make "are you my mummy?" references.

Irrelevant comment is irrelevant.

lmao, this episode was like... so much crack. I'm not sure what to think of it.

Sorta confused as to how Simon suddenly knows about future!Simon since the finale essentially got reconned. But ah, I can go with it. I guess Alisha told when they started dating or something.

I'm excited to find out what powers they'll get in S3! And lol Nathan definately needs his immortality. I hope we hear about Nicki again, or she comes back somehow. I loved Nicki, she and Curtis were cute together.

idk, I enjoyed it but this shows seems so cracky and wtf lately.

LOL IKR? I enjoyed it more than the gorilla episode, but it was pretty cracked out.

Yeah I think it's a bit weird that they skimmed over it. I mean we saw it in the previous episode, but none of that happened.

I'm curious about what powers they'll have too. I guess there are rumours that Robert Sheehan is leaving? IDK if this is true or not but ONTD is all ~abuzz with it. That would be unfortunate, he brings me a lot of lulz.

And yeah I felt bad for Nikki to, I was just getting used to her. And I don't know what the point of her was...? Other than I guess to distract Curtis so he didn't care about Alisha/Simon?

I kind of think that Simon finding out about future!Simon happened pretty much the same way it did in the previous episode, so they didn't show it again.I mean, we got the whole big reveal last week, we really didn't need it again.
Kali: misfits :: you need the right music_thirty2flavors on December 20th, 2010 05:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but none of that happened. I mean, I guess I can assume it happened the same way again, but that seems like a weird thing to assume your audience will fill in, especially since it was sort of spurned by an event in 2x06 that also never happened (the "he told me it was the best time of his life" thing).

The rules of time travel and timey-wimeyness on this show make NO SENSE. I try not to think about it too hard. Except then I do and get all mrrraahgggh-y at the fact that the last episode didn't happen and they're still going on like it did and some of the stuff that future!Simon brought back (like the video) actually got retconned so ~time can be rewritten~ and all that.

I loved Marnie, but you make excellent points. She's just so straightforward and shameless that I think she could be the only person who could be with Nathan if he doesn't gte back his immortality. Any other woman would beat him to death with a shovel in about a day.

What if dead!Jesus still has Alisha's power? EWWWWWW.

All that said this episode was highly entertaining in many ways. It's just holier (c what i did thar) than my stockings and as I am wearing the fancy crochet-style lacy thigh-high ones today, they are pretty holey.
