Tuesday's Forgotten TV: Misfits of Science


This week's Tuesday's Forgotten TV is the 80s NBC sci-fi action series Misfits of Science.

The misfits are comprised of four young recruits: their leader, a non-powered genius; A 7-foot-tall man with the ability to shrink very small (played by the late Kevin Peter Hall of Predator and Harry and the Hendersons fame); a rock musician who has electrical powers thanks to an on-stage accident; and a troubled young woman with telekinetic powers, played by Courtney Cox. In the pilot, a fifth member of the team existed: a middle-aged scientist who could freeze anything due to an accident from being cryogenically frozen. This character had to be removed from the series due to a complaint by Marvel Comics regarding his similarity to the character Ice Man. I find that amusing, as I think the character more closely resembles the DC Comics character Mister Freeze.

Regardless, the show was by no means a ratings winner in its Friday night at 8pm time slot. The series debuted in September of 1985 and was cancelled in February of '86.

Below is the opening title sequence of the series. Enjoy!

I loved this short-lived show! I was not happy when it was canned!

I may have seen it once but that's it. I didn't know the Mr. Freeze-like character was only in the pilot. I thought he would be the most interesting character on the show.

I'd kill that spam if I were you. Meanwhile, one wonders if the producers of WEIRD SCIENCE and MY SCIENCE PROJECT weren't tempted to go to court about this one, as well...quite a little knot of this kind of thing popping up in '85, with REAL GENIUS and BACK TO THE FUTURE thrown in as well. It was "geeks in expensive haircuts" time, obviously.
