I actually haven't managed to watch all of the latest series of Misfits as I got bored, but after going to the panel on Misfits, I am now convinced to finish watching the rest.

There was some discussion on how so many people have died in suspicious circumstances, but no-one has noticed, as it all seems to take place in a bubble, the estate being separate from the outside world, and perhaps no-one cares about it or knows it is there.

The panel about gender parity had something like 4 women and 1 man.
