The journey is over, at least the television one there is still chatter about a possible movie but no actual information yet. For me the ending of Misfits is bitter sweet, I’m sad that a show I loved so much is over but the it was time for the show to end.
A lot of people jumped ship when original cast members all moved on from the show (which i always thought was a little odd) and when Simon left I nearly gave up myself but what had me coming back again was the show itself. I fell in love with this show because of how unique it was, how raw it was and how fucked up it was. Misfits was more about the location and situation than it was about the characters, even though I deeply loved Simon.
A little thing I noticed in the last episode however was that Rudy slept with the 2 hottest girls from the show: Alisha and Jess. I truly believe that Rudy was one of the best characters on all of Misfits and I know some people never got over him “replacing” Nathan but I liked Rudy better actually.
I’m definitely sad that it’s over but the last episode didn’t kill me like some last episodes for certain characters (I was sobbing when Simon left, just sayin). If it was all the characters I’d grown to love over these 5 seasons and I had to say goodbye to them all I would have totally lost it like in the last scene of Skins. I didn’t bond as much as I would have liked to with the current cast unfortunately. If I had it my way the very very last moment of the show would have been Nathan and Barry (Simon) having a last moment together.
Oh well, still a great show and I’m glad I stuck it out to the end.
