Critic Consensus: A cast overhaul is always a potentially disastrous move for any show, but season three of Misfits pulls it off with aplomb.

Tv Season Info
It was an entertaining episode, but an inauspicious beginning to a series I've always loved. Hopefully the writers have got a few tricks up their sleeves.
Nathan's departure could have signaled the death knell for Misfits... But in one majestically mad-cap pre-title sequence he almost makes us forget Nathan was ever around, so strong is Rudy's introduction.
Gilguna's showboating Rudy pushed the tone a little closer to Shameless than Heroes but it may well turn out to be a canny move.
Fans need not fear however, as snarky, big-mouthed Nathan has been replaced by snarky, big-mouthed Rudy.
The show turns all kinds of crazy which is usual, and it's off to a good start.
Audience Reviews for Misfits: Series 3
Misfits returns once again with a powerful third season filled all throughout with smart writing, a quircky presentation, faithful acting and a creatively fulfillment of the show's own mythology -- and marvelously delivers the best and most compelling season finale the show has produced thus far.
Leading character Nathan has departed after two seasons, and is replaced with newcomer Rudy. This initially doesn't work out to great, but after the writers stopped just giving Rudy the lines they would have given to Nathan were he still on the show, and instead start building him as his own character, the season gets into stride and is better for it.
