On Deadly Class, Survival Depends on “Kids of the Black Hole”

We’ve been waiting so long for the final showdown with F-Face that I felt a bit cheated here, being left at the doorstep of that battle. The overwhelming theme of the episode was one of choice and consequence. Marcus, Master Lin, Saya, and Willie all make hard decisions which lead […]

Deadly Class Raises the Stakes as “The Clampdown” Starts

Much of the beauty of the writing of Deadly Class is in the innovative use of old tropes. They’ve done the Roadtrip, the House Party, and whatever you want to call the Breakfast Club detention one. Each time, there’s been a little (or not so little twist) on the trope. […]

Deadly Class Proves It’s More Than Just “Noise, Noise, Noise”

Where “Reagan Youth” might’ve left your head spinning with the rapid introduction of characters and cliques, “Noise, Noise, Noise” delves into the relationships and personal plot-lines of the core cast. The episode opens on the morning after Marcus does Willie’s hobo homework and the aftermath isn’t pretty. He doesn’t sleep, […]

Deadly Class Premiere Spins the “Reagan Youth”

“World War One was started by a teenager with a pistol…” and so begins a seemingly dry history lesson but neither the lecture nor the action of the opening scene is what it seems. We learn quickly that this is a school with consequences. They may wear uniforms but they […]
