The misadventures of every ones favorite group of gifted though misguided youth continue with the second season of Misfits. The season opener shows the gang being stalked by a mysterious helmeted figure.
Misfits has been such a thoroughly entertaining show that it's hard to find fault with any single episode. It gives you everything you want from a superhero themed show, with more food for thought than any number of "adult" superhero comics could ever possibly offer. It also flirts with our mischievous side, openly exploiting the secret desires of it's openly male fanbase. That is the secret of the shows success. It combines solid storytelling with a juvenile sense of humor and titillation.
