    Yeah, whatever similarities Deadly Class has with Potter are purely superficial. In terms of substance, however, the two properties couldn't be anymore different.

    Anyway, the following excerpts taken from an online blogger's synopsis of the source material should give people a good idea of what to expect from the show.

    The first episode was online all this time? I watched half of the first episode just now on SyFy as it aired before having to do some stuff...but I really enjoyed what I saw.

    Plus, Taylor Hickson is in this, and she's pretty great.

    I feel stupid now because the whole time I was watching this I kept thinking, this looks like it would be based on a graphic novel or something. Apparently I was right.

    I'm cautious about this show, I liked the pilot and I LOVE Lana Condor, but I'm not sure I want to get invested if SyFy is going to cancel it. I have not heard anything about how it did. I think I may just wait and see and then binge episodes.

    I loved the 80's vibe, without it being over the top 80's like other period shows.

    I think it helps that they choose not obvious choices for the soundtrack. And the subtle references are nice.

    I enjoyed the episode. I like it when they let Saya be normal, as that allows Lana Condor to be her charming self. Felt bad for Billy, but it felt real for teenagers.

    Plus, it is always enjoyable to see a Nazi get punched.

    I wonder if the comic or the show was inspired a bit
    I wonder if the comic or the show was inspired by the anime/Manga(2012) Assassination Classroom. The brief bits of it seems like a bit of it.

    I'm liking this show more and more with each episode. I don't watch very many tv shows, but this is a lot of fun and I'm beginning to like some of the characters. Hope the ratings are good.

    I'm honestly thinking of just binging this when all the episodes are out. As much as I do want to see it I'm already trying to catch up on so much stuff right now.

    Really good show so far.

    I can't believe I didn't recognize Taylor Hickson as I remembered her from Deadpool and Aftermath.
    The makeup artists did a good job with her scar, I didn't notice it at all.

    Last night's episode has been hyped as the one to watch...like...THE episode of the season...and I can see why. However, there were things that kept taking me out of the reality they were creating. Like...where are the freaking cops? How many gunshots have to go off outside of a casino before the police decide to come? The idea to have the characters be so careless that they would take hallucinogenic drugs right before trying to pull off a VERY risky endeavor was kind of stupid, so the main plot of the episode really lost me to the point where I couldnt take it seriously.

    But, as always, there were some great things about this episode as well. As a Dokken fan, I appreciated the name-drop...even if it wasnt supposed to be in a cool way.

    It will be very bold if they follow the comics in regards to what happens to certain characters.

    I believe only Marcus and Billy himself were in on the plan; everyone else was just along for the ride. Also, as a bunch of kids whose brains aren't yet fully developed, there's still a certain sense of invincibility and naïveté to the way they approach many things.

    Of all the episodes released thus far, this is the first one to perfectly capture the essence of the comic. The cast and crew did an exemplary job with it!

    I'm kind of glad they are spreading the comic origins out in the season. Not sure I could take them all back to back. They are great, but dear god, that would be a lot of darkness to take at once.

    Master Zane is great.

    Gotta say, really enjoyed the finale. A real shame about Lex, though.

    But the fighting and action was off the wall in the episode. I'm talking damn near Preacher levels of insane.

    Watching the second episode, as I can't sleep. Well this is much better then the pilot, which turned me off almost completely.
