Misfits

December 21, 2010

First season great. Second season outstanding. Why do I have to wait a whole year for the third season? It’s going to be freaking amazing. I hope. It should be. New superpowers. Awesome.

So, the first season had six episodes, second had seven, will the third have eight? Please producers, be a bit more generous.

After a very strange storm a group of offenders on community service developed super powers. Love it. Now, which one would you have chosen: Turning back time, invisibility, hearing other people’s thoughts, making someone aroused by touching them or …

Can’t give that one away but it’s at the end of the first season. And it’s hilarious.

It’s the best British series ever. No wonder it won the BAFTA Award for Best Drama Series.

Misfits felt a bit like Skins, which I gave up watching after very few episodes. But these kids had super powers. Even though I’m not a huge fan of science fiction this is right up my street.

They’re no superheroes since, even if they mean well and try to do right, trouble is around the corner. And that’s what makes them stick together. Alicia, Kelly, Curtis, Simon and Nathan.

Best, absolute best things about Misfits – Kelly. Nathan. The jokes, the sarcasm.

I’m Still Here

Seriously, WHY?

“Please don’t misunderstand me,” Joaquin Phoenix said at the beginning of the documentary. I’m not entirely sure what I was supposed to understand. That he needed to fool the world that he had given up acting to become a rapper.

He was awful, so bad it was painful. But funny. He made a fool of himself. He was a bit of a cry-baby blaming people around him for his mischievous behaviour.

But then it was all acting so obviously he did a brilliant job at that. But what an annoying character. And Casey Affleck filming him the whole time. What went on when the cameras were off? Or in those cut-out scenes? Who knew and who didn’t?

Did Joaquin had a need to do this for himself or prove something to the world? WHAT? Act around-the-clock for a year, show his capabilities? Never trust an actor because you will never know…

Celebrities go cuckoo all the time thinking they can get away with this and that. But in this case who knows.

I can’t decide if it was good or if it was bad. It was weird, funny. Don’t know if I understood, misunderstood it and I’m probably not supposed because everything about it was fake. I feel like a big and will forever feel like a ? about this film. Putting it behind me.

Joaquin is actually quite attractive and good-looking but look at the clip below. You wouldn’t even recognise it was him.
