Increasingly Offensive, More Funny

Everyone’s favourite young offenders are back on the run. Misfits will be causing havoc on E4 from November 11, in brand new Series 2.

If you’re unfamiliar with this brilliant comedy drama – perhaps, like Nathan, you’ve been unavoidably detained somewhere – you’ve still got time to remedy this oversight. Can I politely suggest you sort your life out and get up to speed with Bafta-winning Series 1 on 4oD? Here’s a sneak peek of things to come.

Over at E4.com they’ve gone overboard – in a good way – on the Misfits website, with new games, exclusives and loads more video.

They’ve also come up with a brilliant way for you to come face to face with your favourite superheroes with Asbos. Mess with the Misfits allows you to star in your very own Misfits scene. It’s what Facebook should have been invented for – try it out here.

Meanwhile, news that More4 is joining the comedy party with a brand new series that starts on Sunday 14 November – The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret.

The show stars stand-up comedian, writer and Arrested Development star David Cross as the eponymous Todd – whose fast and loose relationship with the truth lands him in increasingly hot water. And court.

Like Free Agents, Plus One and the mighty PhoneShop, this show first saw the light of day as a one-off on Comedy Showcase, before the C4 execs saw sense and snapped it up as a series. Here’s a little bit of what tickled their collective fancy.

Our website features behind-the-scenes video extras from the cast and crew about the making of the show. These include contributions from Todd’s sidekick Dave, played by Blake Harrison.

You might recognise Blake from some obscure E4 show – The Inbetweeners, I think it’s called? In this clip, he and David reveal its benign, and hitherto unsuspected, influence on baby linguistics, lycra animatronics and the work of film director James Cameron. Enjoy.
