"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.

Anyone watching?

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.

by Anonymousreply 101/23/2019

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.

The guy in the mohawk is pretty damn cute. I hope we see more of him.

Wow. Mowhawk guy was the lead character in "The Way Way Back" (a great coming of age art-house movie if you've never seen it).

Wonder if this show will have any gay character. Apparently the comic only had one prominent gay character.

Has Mohawk guy at least been shirtless?

by Anonymousreply 1302/01/2019

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?

by Anonymousreply 1502/01/2019

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

by Anonymousreply 1602/01/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 1702/02/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 1802/02/2019

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).

by Anonymousreply 1902/02/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 2002/02/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 2102/02/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 2202/02/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 2302/02/2019

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.

I believe after 9 or 10 PM swear words don't have to be censored, because by then the kids are supposed to be in bed.

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 Anonymousreply 3102/05/2019

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.

R32, I think the problem might be you. Get your brain and your hearing checked for starters. The problem isn't the show, you're just an idiot with a hearing problem.

The neck tattoo guy Chico (Michel Duval) is only 24. He turns 25 on Feb 10.

They won't though. Of course.

Honestly, it'll be a miracle of this series gets a second season, but if it does (and I hope it does), I wonder if they'll bring the gay characters from the source material into the show.

This show is the best thing (besides The Expanse) that SyFy has had in years. I can’t imagine they’d cancel something so good, even if the ratings were shit.

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'm going to miss Chico too. IMDB has him in 10 episodes, so he will be featured in some capacity the next 5 episodes.

r51 Michel Duval is sexy as fuck, I don't care what r39 says. He does look older than his age though. Check him out in this video with his shirt unbuttoned halfway down. This might sound crazy, but he gives off a Paul Walker vibe to me.

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.

by Anonymousreply 7703/17/2019

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 Anonymousreply 7803/20/2019

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 Anonymousreply 7903/20/2019

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.

by Anonymousreply 8003/20/2019

Interesting, I'll try to spot it in the finale tonight. Is that genetic or is he balding already?

I don't like the temporal point at all and so I buzz it extra hard when I'm cutting my hair.

Are you really into hair, in general? Like some people are into thighs and others into noses... I've always thought of myself as a hair guy but you took it to the next level with your precise terminology.

No, not into normal hair. Really noticeable toupées creep me out though, because of the missing hair at the edges. I had to look up what the hair point was called.

by Anonymousreply 9003/21/2019

Yeah, that last scene was a weird note to end on for a finale. All in all, this show is on the same level as The Umbrella Academy for me - just okay. Those rednecks were fucking scary, though!

Finally figured out which city that is at r72, no thanks to you bitches. It tripped me because you don't usually see shots of SF with the Telegraph Hill as the most prominent landmark. Also, I'm not from the US, so spare me the public shaming.

r94 I mean, sure, I was doing plenty of other things while watching Academy as it was mostly so boring, but I never felt the urge to fast forward anything because the pretentiousness of the dialogue would bother me so much.
