"Deadly Class" on SyFy
Based on a comic book (but no super-power), the story of a homeless kid sworn into a school for assassins... sorta the opposite of Harry Potter.
The lead is cute, and has a shower scene in the first episode. Guest star cameo from Henry Rollins. Set in the late 80s, the soundtrack is awesome.

I've set my dvr to record it, but I haven't watched it yet. When I saw a promo for it, it seemed like it was intended for an Asian audience, but I figured I would give it a try.

I don't really see that, R1. It's more for comic book nerds into 80s music with fantasies about revenge on the people how bullied them in high school.
So, you know, right up my alley.

Not in this. But he was in "The Way Way Back", where he was the lead character that worked at a water park over the summer. He was much younger then, though, so … under-age for sure. Meh.

The mohawk guy has those weird peg-teeth that I find to be a real turn off. All teeth like the same size little squares with big gaps between each tooth. What IS that, anyway?

Mohawk guy was never shirtless in The Way, Way Back, but he was cute and excellent nonetheless. Great movie.

This is a show geared more towards younger people and it has a very dark atmosphere about it. I only watched episode 3, and the storylines are all over the place. A bunch of kids bullying and pulling pranks on each other and doing things that could normally get you thrown in prison, definitely not reality based.
r5 r6 I just checked the IMDB page and there is no Kendal character listed in the show. I guess there won't be a gay character this season. I am sensing some sexual chemistry between the two female characters Maria and Saya in Episode 3 though.
(Spoiler) A lesbian affair wasn't mentioned in their character excerpts (accessed in r5 post) for the comic book. The show might add that facet to their relationship, but it's probably just fan service, because Maria has a boyfriend and it seems Saya will end up with Marcus.
I have to admit the primary reasons I continued to watch the show was because of the soundtrack and hopes of a gay character being revealed.

I was hoping Mohawk guy would be gay but he's not. He's straight. The two female characters were straight in the comics. If they are turned bi without there being a gay Male character I will stop watching.

It seems that no one noticed that the Henry Rollins character was gay - he told Marcus that he lost lots of friends and partners to AIDS.
In the comic books Kendal and Shabnam are gay (doesn't look like Shabnam is gay on the show, though).

There is some nice male eyecandy (the Russian is hot and dumb which makes him even hotter). The story itself is pretty dark and depressing.

I thought in the pilot that the mohawk guy was said to be gay, but clearly I was wrong. Nice eye candy, for sure. I am surprised that a show about school violence, even comic book and over the top violence, was green lit.

Yeah. I was surprised that this is on SyFy. I'd expect something like that on MTV's edgier cousin, YouTube Originals which has shows like Wayne.

The guy that plays the main character Marcus (Benjamin Wadsworth) looks like a young Shiloh Fernandez.
I watched episode 1 and 2 today. Marcus gets kissed on the lips by Lex at the first part of episode 2, but it's only joking around and there was no chemistry. Viktor is butt naked for half of the house party scenes in episode 2.
(Spoiler) r19 The teacher played by Henry Rollins was only listed for 3 episodes on IMDB. After watching the ending on episode 3, I don't think he is coming back.

I think Jürgen (Henry Rollins) will make at least one surprise visit. He liked Marcus enough to warn him about the finals (which apparently no Rat has survived in recent years).

I wish they spent more time on a modicum of plausibility. The premise is so fantastic and ungrounded that the gritty style seems misplaced. And they could have spent some money on sets. Needs more nudity.

r19 Did you read the comics? How do you know Shabnam was gay in the comics? According to this below (SPOILERS) he wants to sleep with a girl named Kelly and blackmails the secretly gay Kendal. He knows Kendal has a lover (Stephen) and wants Kendal to kill him or he will tell everyone Kendal is gay.
|by Anonymous||reply 31||02/05/2019|
I watched the first episode and it doesn't make any sense. It doesn't help that the big Asian guy speaks too softly to be understood. I don't know why they brought the lead to the "school" and then want to kill him. This is another one of those series that is intentionally nonsensical to hook people into thinking that eventually they will be able to understand it.

I'm going to miss Chico and his tits. Though why wouldn't you show him shirtless more often if you know the actor has such nice pecs?
r48 A commenter under an AV Club's recap a couple of episodes ago mentioned that the actor playing Marcus freaked out in Instagram comments under a fan video of those two as a couple. Said Marcus only likes girls, PERIOD. And then added some remarks about bisexuals as well. Which made me think less of him and the show as a whole.
Still a fun show, though. Just maybe add a gay character or two and it'll be even more fun that way for even more people.

I don’t know why an actor would make a comment like that, just let your character be open to whatever it’s better for the story. Yeah a lot of people are “shipping” but that’s what happens on teen shows and he didn’t mind the fan vids of him with the girls so...
But he’s dating Julia from the magicians and he’s hot af so I can’t hate him.

Too bad it's on SyFy so the nudity is of the blink and you'll miss it variety. I screenshotted a frame of Marcus changing in the latest episode and it was clear the editors digitally darkened the place where his balls should have been, in case someone did what I did and turned up the brightness and exposure to max. Lame.

I was a detractor of the show at the beginning because the show was difficult for me to understand with what was happening or what was being said. I decided to give it another try and watched the 1st episode again. I'm up through episode four now. I still don't understand what the purpose of the show is, but I became hooked on Benjamin Wadsworth, because he's so pretty, except of course for that hairline problem. Now that I know he's dating Stella Maeve, that ruins everything, knowing that he let himself be seduced by a cougar robbing the cradle. I don't blame her for trapping him and holding him in her clutches - I would do the same. I just think a lot less of him for sleeping with a old hussy and acting like a student wanting to bed his teacher instead of dating people his own age like a normal 19 year-old would do. It may be a result of the repression from him being home schooled.
|by Anonymous||reply 78||03/20/2019|
r78 I think less of him because of Maeve as well and I don't feel bad for judging him. It's pathetic how his handlers and his friends didn't have his back there.
But what's the hairline problem you mentioned? His hair looks amazing to me. So luscious and shiny, it makes him look like a demigod sometimes.
|by Anonymous||reply 79||03/20/2019|
The frontal and temporal hairline is receded and the temporal point is missing. It kind of freaks me out. He wears his curls way down in front to mask it, but some scenes have his hair pushed back and I have to try to ignore the glaring issue.
