Minor Spoilers ahead so please do not read if you don't want to know anything about this show as it is impossible in a review to at least not mention minor aspects of the plot......on that note let's start this review
After Nathan leaves the show we are introduced to a new character named Rudy who has to deal with his own freaky powers as well as the rest of the team having gained new powers. How will this change their lives and can they avoid anyone else getting caught up in their crazy lives, only time will tell...
Nathan Stewart-Jarrett - Curtis Donovan
Iwan Rheon - Simon Bellamy
Lauren Socha - Kelly Bailey
Antonia Thomas - Alisha Bailey
Joseph Gilgun - Rudy Wade
I guess the saying 'You don't know what you have until it's gone' applies here and Robert Sheehan really did hold the team together and was an excellent character as well as an asset to the show. It is very clear in this 3rd season that Robert Sheehan must have left quite urgently as there are many lines that the new character says which were tailor made for Nathan's character. I am not saying Rudy cannot deliver these lines just it isn't quite the same. Nathan was the glue that held the team together and Rudy is a new different type of glue and it does take a little getting used to.
Essentially if you have seen the first two seasons it is more of the same here and similar to first season in the sense that they all have new powers and are discovering them. I have to say the most bizarre one is Curtis's power of being able to change himself in to a woman and this is quite fascinating to say the least although very strange. The other powers are all pretty standard, although the new character Rudy does have the power to split of in to two people who are similar but play a bit of a devil's advocate with one character being more of the good guy and there other being more of a risk taker.
I don't rate the plot too highly simply as it all seems like it has done before and is a bit more predictable. There were a couple of goods episodes here and usually they are based around Curtis's character and Rudy and their interactions. I am not really a fan of this whole Simon, Alisha love relationship and it just doesn't seem that realistic but I guess that is the way it goes. Overall it is still a decent show and watchable and I am currently watching season 4 which is also decent, but I feel the end is not far now for Misfits.
Summary: Fans will enjoy it
