Almost everyone posting in the comments section seem to be hating on E4 and Howard Overman because Robert Sheehan is leaving Misfits so soon there will be no Nathan. I like Nathan and I'll miss his character but god, I wish they'd get some perspective. The writer is there. Y'know, the one that wrote all of Nathan's lines. Duh. If they can get an actor as good as Robert Sheehan then what's the problem? Fucks sake I wish people would watch stuff before they started bitching. They haven't even started filming yet.

A few Misfits fans again getting all het up by alleged gross sexism in Misfits again because of ep 6. I can't be bothered to get annoyed. Just because a character in a TV show does or says something sexist it doesn't make the TV show or the writer sexist. It simply means he's written a sexist character. If the writer shows the other characters being repulsed or disapproving then presumably the writer is not allowing blatant sexism or harassment to go by with out comment.
Newsflash! Sexist people exist. I don't want them hidden, I want them ridiculed on TV.

Yes, after Daisy refused to heal Nathan's cock Nathan was horribly inappropriate and attempted to stick her hand down his pants. Yes. It is sexual harassment, I agree. But that doesn't mean Misfits is misogynist. Throughout the last 12 episode Nathan has been consistently shown as being a complete dick. Almost everything he does and says is hugely inappropriate and demonstrates what a prick he is. We're not meant to approve of what he says and does because while he's a hilarious character he's not meant to be someone you'd want to know in real life. I love his character but if I knew someone like him in real life I'd fucking hate them.

Too many fans are crushing on actors to the point of imagining character traits that don't exist or obsessing about their favourite fucking 'ships' that they can't actually see the plot and characters right in front of their noses.
(I mean one commenter actually said she misses the 'compassionate' Nathan from Season 1. WHEN THE FUCK was Nathan compassionate in season 1? If anything it's the other way around, but I would never describe Nathan as compassionate.)

Nathan is funny. But he is a twat. He would stick Daisy's hand on his cock. Because he was desperate to be healed and he is a dick. But that doesn't mean the fucking writer or the programme makers would do the same thing, or that they're endorsing it, fan-morons.

Also. Nathan behaves inappropriately regardless of gender. I mean, he turned to Curtis at the urinal and said: "Nice cock, man." Which was highly amusing but pretty evident he doesn't particularly discriminate. Imagine the uproar if he turned to Alisha and said: "Nice vag, man."

Nathan is crude, but Curtis and Simon balance it out by not being crude. The show is not fucking sexist. I don't even think Nathan is particularly sexist, he's just a wanker.

A lot of people seem to think Nikki's attitude is out of order and that she's an unnecessarily horrible 'bitch'. I can't actually get my head around this. It's like they don't actually think about what has happened to the girl.

1. Nikki had a fatal heart condition and was incredibly ill and was close to dying.
2. Five teenagers broke into her flat, went through her stuff, and one of them shit in her bed and wiped his arse on her pyjamas.
3. She got a new heart. Which then teleported her on top of a dead body in a morgue or wherever.
4. I noticed that we haven't seen her friends and/or family. She's alone in her flat, seriously ill, on oxygen etc. She's alone in the hospital after major heart surgery, no visitors. Obviously scared.
5. After (understandably) assuming Curtis had stood her up she teleports to him, only to be caught by a psycho with a gun and chained up in the air.
I wouldn't be a sweet cheery person either. But it doesn't matter to fangirls because she was- 'mean to Curtis boo hoo so is such a bitch'.

AND. Jessica in last nights episode. I thought she was a sweet character. A good character to make a shy character like Simon who lacks confidence with girls comfortable. Particularly when it comes to first time sex. And also unconventionally pretty. I thought she was cute.
Fangirls are all - 'OMFGBBQ How dare she be Simon's first and not Alisha!?!?! Jessica was so ugly why they call her cute when she ugly. bitch! etc etc'

And the amount of people appalled by the what the fuckery of the gorilla thing. A lot of people were also appalled by the what the fuckery of the peanut allergy thing a few eps ago. I don't get it. MISFITS IS ALL ABOUT WHAT THE FUCKERY. THAT'S WHY I LIKE IT! Don't be appalled be fucking AMUSED.

And then, once over the what the fuckery, feel sad. Because for all it's WTF-ness I though that shit with the Gorilla at the end was heartbreakingly tragic. Just like after the what the fuckery of the old woman in series one, I still cried my fucking eyes out at the end.

The Misfit fandom should be proud. It's the first fandom I've been interested in that's prompted a need for a 'fucking fangirls' tag in my journal.

I'm kind of baffled by a large element of the Misfits fandom. It's bewildering me that all of a sudden after a hunky future-Simon shows up fangirls are suddenly squeeing all over the place about how lovely he is.  Everyone seems to have completely forgotten that in series one he:
1. Stuck his hand up a semi-unconscious Kelly's skirt.
2. Spied on the girls while they were getting changed. And sniffed them.
3. Stalked the second probation worker, Sally, by actually going into her house while he was invisible and watched her eat, get undressed and even filmed her sleeping.
4. Sure he accidentally killed Sally (I'm not including that since it was an accident and Kelly killed the first one), but then he munched pizza while gazing at her propped up dead frozen body in a way that was decidedly creepy.

Sure you could put a lot of that down to him being a horny young male. And a lonely and socially inept one at that. Fine. BUT, call me uptight, but I would not easily forget that creepy moment he stuck his hand up Kelly's skirt when she was alone and vulnerable. The contrast between Simon doing that and Curtis giving her his jacket kind of says it all.

Also, I'm not including it since it's his own private fantasy and we've all got them. But when Alisha used her 'power' he did say he wanted to 'rip off her clothes and piss on her tits'. Which is just ugh. And the armpit thing. When future-Simon and Alisha were getting it on all I could think was "Fucking hell, I hope he doesn't piss on her tits, that'll really spoil the mood." It sort of spoiled any romance for me. Even if it does appear genuine on the surface.

And on top of all this:
5. I don't like the way future Simon manipulated Alisha into the romance by claiming that they fall in love. There's only his word on that. If he even is Simon anyway. Her 'power' has been a curse, she finds someone she can safely touch she's going to love that and he's taken advantage of that too.

That said. I like Simon. He's a good character, like all of them. XD I just hate the way the fangirls are all "Ohhh Simon's so SWEET and WONDERFUL." Seriously? What? I adore every one of these characters, but they're no fucking angels. They have massive flaws and Simon is no exception. No one was saying he was SO SWEET when he was being a creepy little bastard.
