"Misfits" My Thoughts

Post by Kris Smith on Sat Jun 13, 2015 8:43 pm

Okay, I'm a few episodes into season/series two, and something really caught me attention. The love the way that Kelly treats Simon. She looks out for him like a big sister. When Curtis attacked Simon she threatened to beat the crap out of him, and based on what she did to the probation officer I think she could do it. And later when Nathan kisses Simon she on him about making fun of Simon. I love it, but it sorta seems to come out of left field. I don't remember her displaying that attitude in season/series one.

Okay, here's my thoughts on the anti-social behaviors of the main characters.

Alisha: Alisha is a nymphomaniac. She continuously seeks sex as a means to fill an emotional void. Like a drug this gives her a momentary high, but in the long run it makes her depressed. This also seems to affect her ability to make meaningful emotional attachments as she only knows how to relate to people sexually.

Curtis: I'm not sure that Curtis is anti-social. He actually seems to be well adjusted.

Kelly: While Kelly is sensitive of others feelings she seems to be overly blunt. She reacts to problems by using straight forward force, if not overt violence.

Nathan: Nathan is a textbook low level sociopath. He lacks empathy/sympathy towards others, holds the opinions of others in low regard, and is virtually incapable of of making and carrying through on long or even short range plans (he has poor impulse control).

Simon: Simon displays an overt sensitivity that makes it difficult for him to make social attachments. His behavior of invisibly stalking people is an unhealthy attempt to rectify this. He also seems to have some level of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.
