Misfits follows five early-20s delinquents on community service in Wertham (a fictional borough in London), who are caught outside during an electrical thunder storm and acquire special powers.
I guess you could say it's similar to "Heroes" but a much cooler British version.
This show has quickly become an obsession for me. As far as I know it is only available on Hulu, which has the first 2 seasons. The 3rd is in filming right now, I believe. Anyone watch the show yet?
Also, the soundtrack is fucking amazing. You can find a list of each song with scene breakdown here.
