Misfits: Series 5: DVD Review

Misfits: Series 5: DVD Review

Rating: R16
Released by Roadshow Home Ent

The once great Misfits limps to an end with this final year that makes the show feel like a pale shadow of its former self.

Across 8 episodes - and with only Joseph Gilgun's Rudy offering any real shine - the ASBO brigade continues its irreverent jaunt against anyone who crosses their path. From a scout group possessed by the Devil to a lesbian gypsy, no stone is left unturned as the show heads to an end.

The problem is that it's just nowhere near as good as it has been; the characters in the group are less than memorable (even though a relationship between Rudy and Jess in the group feels natural) and the stories are less than remarkable.

Do yourself a favour and check out the show when it was in its prime - while the cast give it their all, there's nothing but relief when this series is done - and for a final curtain call, that really shouldn't be the case.
