After streaming the first episode of SyFy’s Deadly Class before it even aired, I was instantly hooked (just check out my Deadly Class review of episode one). I knew immediately that this show was right up my alley. First of all, it is based on a comic book, and you know how much I love my comic books. Second, it is filled with action. And not just any action. Gory action. There is also bad language, and inappropriate situations. Plus the Russo Brothers are Executive Producers, so I knew it was going to only get better. I was hooked all season long, and the finale just left me begging for more.
One of my favorite things about this show is that when things got too crazy, or too graphic, or the Russos just felt like doing it, it would slip in to an animated scene. But not just any kind of animated, oh no, I felt like I was inside of the pages of the comics. Which, for the record, I ordered the first three volumes of immediately after watching the first episode. I still can’t get over how much this show is like the comics, which rarely happens.

So Much Blood
My favorite part about the finale? There was so much blood. So much action. So much….awesome. The moment it ended I could have screamed for more. I loved seeing Lin and his daughter team up to take on the crazy Mexican Cartel. That was one of the highlights of the episode for me. Of course, the crew battling the hillbillies in the house was pretty epic too (when that guy BLEW UP – amazingly disgusting).
I also rather enjoyed the tension between Maria and Saya. I mean, Maria was TOTALLY going to let Saya get murdered at one point because she was mad she slept with Marcus. Not that I don’t get it. I do. But that might be going a little far Maria. The girl is crazy. Which I suppose is one of the reasons I love her so much.
Clearly we need a season 2. I need to know if Lex died after the cartel shot him? Geesh I hope not. But Marcus and Maria walking out of the house, while holding Chico’s head, and bumping right in to his dad certainly didn’t help the whole situation. Sure, we got rid of Chester (F*ckFace) in perfect fashion. He had been abusing dogs for years, it was only right that one turned on him and killed him. Although I admit I saw that coming when his captive told Marcus the dogs didn’t like him much.
And my heart is breaking for Lin. Having his sister take his daughter away. He has been hurt badly but will he die? Perhaps not. Oh and I totally want Petra and Billy together because they are adorable.
Has Deadly Class been renewed for a second season yet? Well, not as I type this. But man I hope it is. I need more Marcus, Maria, Billy, Saya, and the rest of these misfits in my life. Yea, I am going to be ordering more of the comics to read while I wait for this to return (because it has to or I riot – Deadly Class style). As I said above, this show follows the comics closely, so I will be getting my fix that way.
