I found it a little hard to get into this to begin with as I was a big fan of Nathan, and thought the show couldn't work without him. His unexpeced departure does slightly change the feel of the show, but not as much as I had expected, but Rudy is, however, a brilliant replacement and, if anything, works better for the dynamic of the group.
The storylines are still extremely well written and just as dark and gritty as we have come to expect, with the hilarious humour from the previous series still present, as well as the great chemistry between the cast (both old and new). The series never reaches the height of brilliance that is the first series, but I don't think anything they do ever will, as it was as close to perfect as you can get!
There are the usual slight plotholes to overlook, but overall I would definitely recommend this series, and say not to pass on it just because of the character change. It's still brilliant and easily one of the best shows on TV at the moment.
Also for Nathan fans, his farewell film "Vegas, Baby!" is included as one of the special features, a nice touch.

I will admit that the character Nathan grated in me slightly, even though he was hilarious. But new guy Rudy fills his space very well. He is very funny, and a talent actor. Also great performances from the original characters Simon, Alisha, Curtis and Kelly.

In this series, Alisha and Simons relationship starts to get deeper, until a shock at the end of the series, I won't spoil. The best episode in the series is definitely the Nazi episode, as even though it is a very dark piece of drama, it never fails to be funny, same can be said for all episodes, but this ones the funniest.

I was gutted to hear at the end of Series 3, characters Alisha, Simon and Kelly will be leaving, which only leaves one original, Curtis.

Well i got 1 and 2 as a birthday present not really knowing much about the show at all. I watched and loved 1 and 2 then i decided to watch series 3 on 4oD. i've still got 2-3 episode left but its still fantastic. Also like said below when i heard Nathan - Robert Sheenan had the left the show i thought 'Oh no. its gunna be poor' but they've replaced him with another great actor and its just as good. Must watch

Unlike "johngarrett", who gave it just one star, I watched the entire season, and that's why I gave it five stars. Joseph Gilgun(Rudy), who fills the space left by Robert Sheehan(Nathan), is one of my favourite actors, and his work here on Misfits is genius. This has to be the best season of the show so far, and the final episode ties up some long running story threads, yet leaves the future of the show wide open. Can't wait now for season four...

ive watched misfits through from series 1. to be honest im glad for the character change in series 3. nathan wasn't my personal favourite. there is a better balance with the main characters without one appearing to outshine the others.if your a 'misfits follower then this is well worth watching.oh and as regards to the garrett review he seems to copy same review on various items and his review is more on personal preference rather than creative aspect which misfits has to offer.reviews should be unbias and informative.

  Continues to do Things its Own Way

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Two major changes took place at the end of season two. Firstly the characters had their powers replaced with alternative powers (which are not revealed until this third season) and secondly Robert Sheehan, who played the outspoken Nathan, decided to leave the show. As a fan of Misfits I was worried that these changes could upset the balance of the show, fortunately my concerns were unfounded. Although there hasn't exactly been a shortage of superhero shows on TV in recent times Misfits continues to do things its own way by telling its own unique stories whilst retaining the series trademark dark humour. In fact, thanks to the removal of Curtis' ability to rewind time, season three is arguably the strongest yet despite the loss of many viewers favourite character.
