Going with our theme of perfectly-matched powers, the endlessly self-destructive Nathan turns out to be immortal.

All this discussion over the Misfits series reminded me of how surprisingly good it was, till it wasn't, and judging by a few comments it sounds like it regained its footing?

It did. A bit of struggles keeping the steam going after Sheehan left, but once Rudy settles in (no spoilers, just a cool Joseph Gilgun character), it got pretty reliable again.

I thought that Rachel was going to end up as the big bad of the series... it seems likely that she was just sincerely thinking that she was bringing people to Jesus. Only she met Jesus instead! Ha ha ha... sheesh, this series and its body count. Also, kind of amusing that the series seems to have premiered its Batman.

Can see pretty clearly see here that the producers definitely face-<strike>heel</strike> Simon.

That's a fun big bad.

I didn't like Nathan, but, shit.
