Critic Reviews for Deadly Class Season 1

All Critics (36) | Top Critics (10)

Deadly Class isn't about to make perfect sense, or for the most part, even imperfect sense. Its intentions, however, take on a certain nobility in due time.

For now, Deadly Class is failing to live up to its potential. It's messy and hollow. It's all a front.

High school may have felt like a never-ending hellscape to many, but "Deadly Class" gives little motivation to watch by making onlookers experience the unpleasantness all over again.

I like the idea that these would-be killers - like pretty much all high-schoolers trying on different identities - are also poseurs.

Mar 20, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

If the first season is any indication, Deadly Class should be here to stay for a long time. Wild, crazy, & violent - it feels like it was ripped from the comic pages.

Apr 30, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

There is potential, but with too much emphasis on melodrama tropes, and villainous characters that lack charm, the pilot episode leaves much to be desired.

Mar 22, 2019 | Full Review…

A brutal and fairly well-made finish to a strong and mostly impressive first season.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Deadly Class is one that I will continue to watch.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

Deadly Class feels smart, stylish and cool despite its scary violence... it's a show that will ring the new year in with a rebel yell.

Feb 12, 2019 | Full Review…

Deadly Class asks what it takes to change the status quo, but its answer so far is not particularly revolutionary.

Feb 5, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Young-psychos-in-training series has violence, language.

Jan 24, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

In a perpetually crowded television landscape for original scripted series, Being the Absolute Most probably doesn't hurt Deadly Class' chances of standing out. If nothing else, the show's provocative tone is in line with its source material.

    This tv show was one of the best things to ever be on tv and it was cancelled by Syfy for no reason. Deadly class is amazing!
  • Nov 26, 2019
    Would be great to see how these characters develop, but SyFy cancelled the series. The acting was great, the visuals were good for a TV series, the 80's soundtrack was awesome, viewership seemed to be there, the story line was a bit choppy, but could have developed ... I mean, what does it take to save a series that the audience loved?
  • Sep 30, 2019
    This new take on hero/villain struggle, is a fresh and welcome change from the mundane and played out status quo that has been filling the small screen since the beginning. The cast is vivacious and shows a good mix of all the ingredients needed for a teen flick including romance/bromance/revenge/clique/competition. After having stuffed myself binge watching season 1, Im ready for my 2nd helping... so when do we get our season 2?

    Perfeita. Sem defeitos

    WOW WHAT A SUPRISE!!!!!! The critics gave Deadly Class a low rating, yet THE ACTUAL VIEWERS gave it a rating in the 90+%!!!! I feel in love with the series from episode 1 to episode 10, where at the end of the season I found out that Sony decided to rip my heart out by CANCELLING the show... WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?! (@Sony) I need an answer as to why exactly the show was cancelled. I've checked the ratings, which came back with tremendous positives apart from the stuck up critics who LITERALLY TROLL FOR A LIVING. (Side question @ the critics: How much do you get paid to feed the website lies on the different shows? I'm assuming a lot, and since there's enough of you paid out mfs that great shows end up getting cancelled... No I'm not blaming you directly, even though a less than positive critique sets the stage for cancellation...) Apart from that, I've tried checking out the revenue for the show, which I got the run around for, since Google didn't actually supply me with the profits (as I assumed the only reason why any show would cancel was because of negative revenue). Great show, great cast, badass story line... I NEED AN EXPLANATION! GIVE ME SEASON 2 OR GIVE ME A FUCKING ANSWER AS TO WHY IT'S CANCELLED. Please for God sakes someone PROVE me wrong, or rather, right, as I'd like to expose the phoneys. Please email me or message me back and allow me to eat my words, but only with proof. Otherwise, give me and the VAST majority of ACTUAL viewers a season 2, 3, etc.!

    Really enjoyed this one, nothing else like it, with the dark environment of 80s S.F. and such a diverse cast. Really disappointed SyFy didn't give this one a chance with a second season.

    The first star is 5 stars for the first episode.. the half star is half a star for everything afterwards. When i watched the pilot i thought, "HELL YES! IM IN LOVE! THIS IS SOMETHING IVE BEEN WAITING FOR!" ... AND THEN ... it just went down down down in flames. I FEEL like when Henry Roland's character as the teacher handing in his resignation, was a metaphor for him actually leaving the show once he realized it was bombing. My hunch only.. but it just seems so synonymous. I mean.. this show.. to hell with the looks and the humor or all the eye candy... this show had promise out the yin-yang to be a basis for exploring our human psyche and the will to stand up against our oppressive existence. The dialog and the concepts and the music of that punk-mentality, that generation of voices of being fed up with our totalitarian overlords and breaking the mold of our assumed, moral convictions.. this was all so BAD-ASS and had me so deep along with it, ready to see how this kid was going to take on the world. But by the end of the second episode, I could see the screws coming loose.. and then so fast, it fell apart and i began griefing. I wanted this show to take off.. i wanted this thing to last. What happened? By episode 3, it was all unhinged and i was lost on so many fronts. Ive never seen anything show start so well and then fall to its death so quickly. I hate this! Why do great things get screwed this way? Seriously, what happened? The writing in the pilot was awesome, and the next episodes felt like someone snuck in and tore the pages out and stuffed in half-assed, melodramatic malarkey. Just... erase everything after the pilot, get a new network and start over. Stick with your guns this time.. please? "Making the world a better place.. just a bunch of hippy BS" I loved it... :(

    This show is great. Executed extremely well. The actors have done a fantastic job with extreme parts. Love the the music and the teen age coming of age rants...raging against the machine as we do when we are young and everything is new.
