Not everyone who's endowed with superhero powers is necessarily a hero. Just ask Kelly, Nathan, Curtis, Alisha, and Simon, the five semi-delinquent teenagers whose lives were changed forever by a freak electrical storm which left them all with some very unexpected new abilities. But while suddenly having superpowers may seem like a gift, for these teens, it often feels like a curse, as the powers also tend to reveal each one's deepest fears and insecurities. But there's little time for self-pity, as that storm wasn't the only unexpected surprise to descend on their small town; a new evil has arrived, wreaking havoc on the lives of their fellow citizens. Now, these five unexpected heroes must team up to conquer this sinister force—and hopefully still find time to finish their homework.
Hulu's Misfits is one of the most creative series to come along in quite some time. But, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, and the upcoming fifth season will be the show's last. Be sure to catch the premiere of the final season's first two episodes now at http://www.hulu.com/misfits, and check back each week after that for the remainder of the last eight episodes. If you're not up to date, you can catch up on seasons 1-4 there now as well. You better hurry, though—the fate of the universe hangs in the balance.
