Everyone loves an underdog — and it’s nearly impossible to resist a motley group of underdogs like the crew of endearingly raunchy delinquents in Hulu’s new arrival: Misfits (it doesn’t hurt that they’re British and have superpowers). From The Mighty Ducks and The Sandlot to The Breakfast Club and A League of Their Own…and Cool Runnings…and The Goonies, a group of ragtag characters down on their luck who steal our hearts and turn things around will never get old.
How many inspiring montages have you seen that feature a group of outliers coming together to win the big game, build a car (or rocket ship, or time machine), or create a scene-stealing prom dress out of vintage scraps? Tales of opposites attracting and joining forces to take on the rich, attractive, and obviously bad guys are bound to leave us teary-eyed and feeling warm and fuzzy inside.
