    OK, this show was kind of fun. You can catch it on Logo. Too bad they had to silence a lot of the swearing; BBC is pretty blue! I suppose it would be better if we "found" the original somewhere, but it's not such a great show that I feel compelled to go to those lengths. A good summer show though.

    This is show that, season by season, just keeps getting better and more interesting. Which I guess is all I will say.

    I loved Misfits. I can't imagine watching it censored (language and content both). It gets better with each episode and it is well worth tracking down unedited versions.

    I agree that this show is great and gets better! I think folks on this side of the Atlantic would benefit from subtitles to decipher some of the stronger accents.

    I found myself constantly rewinding to catch one character's (Kelly, played by Lauren Socha) especially heavy-accented (Derbyshire, England) speed-talking style. Her brother (Michael Socha) also plays a werewolf in the UK version of "Being Human". They look (and sound) like twins.

    One thing about casting actors in UK productions ... they definitely find odd-looking women for great parts.
    e.g., Lauren Socha in "Misfits"

    Is it not on Hulu anymore? That's how I watched the entire run.

    I loved that Life's too Short girl. One of the best things about that show.

    Thanks for the censoring and cuts warning - it releases on DVD at the end of the month - I think I will wait for that :)

    For a long time I couldn't use Hulu because they didn't support Linux. They do now though. Also it seems I can use my Wii to get video on the TV; I'll have to try that. I'm already using my Wii for Netflix streaming more than my TiVo, because the TiVo/Netflix interface sucketh rancid moat water.

    However the Hulu episodes don't seem THAT much longer; 47 to 48 minutes per episode. Maybe I'll watch the first one again on Hulu and see if I notice anything that was cut out.

    Hrm. Wii support requires Hulu Plus. Not sure I'm that interested. I might try the free week and see how it goes.

    I watched this show quite some time ago. How can season 1 episode 1 be dated 07/19/2012?

    Or is that just when the OP happened to watch it?

    I'm guessing its when he watched it :)

    I also found this show on Hulu about a year or so ago and became hooked...

    It's totally uncut on Hulu. X rated language (even the C word) and quite a bit of nudity. I only recently discovered it and now I'm addicted.

    I watched the first two episodes on Hulu. I didn't notice anything cut from the first episode as shown on Logo; they just muted the worst of the swear words.

    The second episode had a good bit of nudity; it'll be interesting to see how much they keep.

    I'm midway through season 2 on Hulu+. Sadly, the nudity in episode 2/season 1 is the only time they've had it. The swearing also seems a bit toned down as the series progresses.

    For those not watching it, think the US series Heroes. For me, it's equal in quality to season 1 of Heroes and MUCH better than the Heroes after season 1.
