They have switched out and removed songs in this DVD release! In the last episode,(this next part isn't really a spoiler so don't worry) when Nathan is wearing the suit and before he puts in his headphones to stop the villain, the original song Low Rider, by the band War, is switched out of the scene to some random song. It's a very cool scene originally, but with that song cut out, it really changed the effect that it made (for me at least). That scene is one of the highlights of the season, but with the original song gone, it's just not as epic and cool as it originally was.

Now, why would they change the song? The answer is simple, they couldnt clear the music rights for the DVD release (at least the region 1 release).

Although this doesn't seem like a huge loss, why should you care? Because if this song was cut from the series, there's no telling what other songs got cut out as well. Apparently according to another reviewer, earlier in the same episode (episode 6), some songs were either missing or changed as well.

They did the exact same thing for the season 1 release of the U.K. Show Skins, Vol. 1 , except it was even worse because they had to actually remove an entire scene in the ending of that season.

Anyhow, not all this of this will matter to some, but it makes a big difference to me. When I watch a movie or show, I like to watch it how it was meant to be presented, completely unchanged and uncut.

So ya, this show is definitely 5 stars on my list, but because of the way the soundtrack has been cut on the DVD region 1 release, I give the product 3 stars.

I honestly can't figure out why I can't stop watching this show. The premise of kids getting super powers after being stuck my lightening and the fact that I can't understand what they are saying sometimes ( my untrained American ears) would have normally been enough for me. But I was bored and played the first episode on Hulu and had to stop halfway through because I knew that my wife would love the show and she did. We just recently re-watched the first three episodes with my In-laws and turned them onto it as well.
The first thing that comes to mind as far as why I like this show so much are the characters. Each of these actors plays their parts perfectly, they somehow manage to be unlikeable and someone I want to have a beer with at the same time. I don't know enough about British culture (had to look up what a chav was) to know if they are playing on stereotypes but these actors are making some very memorable characters.
The show also uses some "edgy" music (for lack of a better term) along with a certain cinematic style (again, don't know if that's the right term but the use of unfocused shots to direct our attention to certain things is pretty unique) that sets it apart from other shows.
And finally, the show seems to be taking its time. I'm 5 episodes into it and so far no one has tried to save the world yet. That's good in my book.

I am a huge fan of this show. I have watched it many many times over on Hulu and had to show my love by buying the region 1 DVD when it came out. I finally got around to watching this DVD, and could only get through a few episodes because the differences in the music were driving me crazy!

Originally this show has a phenomenal soundtrack that needed no changes. Because of licensing issues, a lot of that music which made the show special and gave just the right emotion to a scene is replaced with second-rate garbage. I had no idea when I bought this DVD that the show would be so different. I should have just kept watching it for free on Hulu.

These are not your father's superheroes! The ulitimate, how would a person behave if their deepest wish/dream/desire came true in the form of a power. These are young, flawed human beings~like the rest of us... Well, maybe when I was a young twenty-something...the years have made me think a bit more.
I have seen both series one and two but I am waiting for series 2 to be released on amazon online. Nathan is stupidly blunt, crude, rude, honest and funny.. Kelley is just as great with her great dialect and attitude. Simon is well...you will find out how he evolves...
Quality shows like this and BBC's Sherlock, Torchwood, Being Human, & Merlin have made me eye those region free dvd players very seriously as it takes too darn long for these to get released in the U.S.....
Don't get me wrong, we have a number of great shows here as well. It seems the good ones are all on cable.

If you had told me that a show about juvenile delinquents with superpowers would turn into one of my contemporary favorites, I'd have thought you were crazy. Expertly blending ribald comedy with a science fiction theme, "Misfits" is easily one of the funniest and most wildly entertaining shows that I've seen in a while. Seriously. And if I were to describe it further, it would sound even sillier. The five central characters in "Misfits" meet in a community service group, get caught in a freak electrical storm that juices them with lightning, and awake to realize that their world has changed forever. Actually, not just their world but the world around them as the strange storm has affected others in macabre and hysterical ways.

Season One is comprised of only six episodes, but they are a super strong introduction. Why did it take this long to get an official North American release? Three more seasons have already been filmed as this grouping aired in 2009 originally. The Special Features include a "Making of" featurette, cast and crew interviews, and "Simon's films" (one of the characters shoots a lot of video footage).

With a cast of talented young actors, it might be tempting to dismiss this as a show exclusively for a younger demographic. And perhaps it is. But as an adult, I think it is an absolute laugh riot. If you like edgier fare (this is rich with colorful language, brief nudity, and wildly inappropriate behavior), I strongly encourage you to give this a look. Remember, though, this is a British production. Some of the references might elude you if you are completely unfamiliar with the pop culture scene across the pond and many of the accents are quite extreme. Although I didn't struggle too much, I have friends that watched the show with subtitles.
