From the moment I heard that Deadly Class was going to become a show on SyFy, I was thrilled. I knew it was based off a comic book, which I had not read, but had only heard good things about from my fellow comic book reading friends. Then I saw that the Russo Brothers were executive producers and I knew it was going be out of this world. Well, I watched the premiere episode last night and I was hooked instantly!
The Action Was Amazing
There was SO MUCH ACTION! Usually a pilot episode is filled with backstories and barely any action. Perhaps at the end of the episode to leave the audience wanting more, or right at the beginning to suck you in – but the Deadly Class pilot had action throughout. At one point, they cut to a comic book style animation and I was dead. Like right then I was like OK – I love this show. And I can’t wait for more.
Marcus, a homeless orphan, is the main character, and I instantly fell in love with him. I feel for him. I want to know more about him. And I totally related to him partly as he entered Kings Dominion. There were lots of other characters that I am excited to get to know as well. But Marcus really shone, especially about half way through the episode. I don’t want to give anything away, but just know he might surprise you.
Another character I am also really intrigued by is Billy, who is sort of a skater punk misfit. I cannot wait to see where his story goes because I have a feeling he will be important. Marcus and Willie have a connection that pulled me in too.
Deadly Class Pulled Me In!
I am totally going to pick up all of the comic books now because I want to know more about these characters right now. I need to know their backstories and futures. Some people wouldn’t want to read ahead to see what happens but I do. After watching the first episode, I am even more excited about this show. I can’t wait to tune in all season.
