Deadly Class Finale “Sink With California” Long on Fights and Short on Answers

Well, that was probably the bleakest finale I’ve seen in a long time. I have to admit my standard for finales is high for quality but, honestly, you don’t have to tick a LOT of boxes for it to be passably satisfying. Primarily, it kind of needs to bring something […]

Deadly Class Competition Turns into a “Snake Pit”

The 1980s was the hey day of the high school dance drama and Deadly Class really uses the well-known setting to its max potential with King’s Dominion’s annual “Sleeping With the Fishes” Legacy-only dance. It comes in shades of Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, Heathers, and even Carrie. The cliques come into play, especially as […]
