A Couple of Good New Shows

by ,

Two new shows are on BBC that are pretty good.

Paradox

Paradox
is about what look to be cell phone pictures from the future appearing at the lab of a solar astronomer of some kind.
He contacts the police, and they end up trying to prevent the disasters predicted by the pictures.

It seems to be a mini-series with only 5 episodes, but I’m not sure.

Misfits

Misfits
is about a group of young offendors doing community service.
Thanks to a freak lightning storm, they (and many others in the area) are given special abilities.
Yes, it’s another “Heroes”-inspired show.
But the kids in this one would never be seen on mainstram US TV.
There’s no end of sexual innuendo, foul language and bad behaviour. It’s great!
