Misfits is a U.K. science fiction/fantasy series about five troubled, young adults who are all sentenced to 12 weeks of community service following offenses they each committed. After a freak lightning storm, the five gain abilities, each inherent of their different personalities and quirks. While attempting to understand and control their abilities, one of the five accidentally kills someone in self-defense, the remaining first season of the series focusing on the group trying to keep the death under wraps. The shady task is not so easy when outsiders begin to catch on. With such turmoil between the five, some find solace in each other while others withdraw and find stability elsewhere.
