British series about some trashy teens with some very (weird) british accents. They’re on community service and are just fucking about as you imagine such youths would. But then a storm happens and shit gets really weird and their probation worker goes mental and attacks them and from then on you learn that they’ve got powers. The fun thing is seeing these characters interact as they act much like you’d expect and would just dick around with each other.
Another thing I really appreciate is how straight forward it is, it doesn’t want to set up a whole big story on why there’s powers and it shows, it’s not important. A fun thing is also that the powers aren’t all really useful or “cool”. One of the characters actually says that some of those powers are really lame and categorizes them into “A-list and B-list”. In it’s own way the show is really quite unique in that it’s fun and doesn’t take itself so seriously nor does it entirely focus on the powers themselves, but on the characters instead.
Guy who always pisses about, rarely serious and is just an all-around jackass and therefore my favorite character. Though there are times when he is serious, which he pulls off really well, you’ll mostly be looking at him for laughs, be it by making a fool out of himself, being awkward or making fun of the situation.
Jock athlete who got arrested for a possession charge and guy who tries to make the best of things. He’s not a character that stands out too much, out of the bunch he’s probably the one who just wants to be “good” and behave properly. He regrets his actions that caused him to be there and he is a nice character to have around to keep the others in check.
Very outgoing girl who is friendly and caring, though she starts off pretty much as “Just a hot girl because we needed one” but over some episodes you’ll get to know her more and she even starts playing a big part in the story. She also is quite clever and clearly more than just her looks.
Simon is a very interesting guy, from the very beginning he will strike you as weird. He’s the guy who barely speaks and is lonely and an outcast, even among outcasts. He’s probably my second favorite character but I don’t exactly know why. He tends to keep to himself and he’s very unpredictable and even straight up freaky because of this.
My first thought on Kelly was… “What is that accent!?” I hadn’t heard anything like it before and funnily enough, the characters say the same thing. She’s mostly a supportive person who is very open about what she thinks about the situation which I appreciate. She also tries to keep the group together for example when a fight happens.
