    I very much enjoyed it. Had a bouncy effect between darkness and teenagery irreverence. Culminated in what I consider an epic season finale.

    Considering I was completely unfamiliar with the comic, I thought they did a superb a job with everything except hiding the apocalypse which I guessed from first episode (but maybe it wasn’t supposed to be a big reveal).

    That is kinda how i am viewing Deadly Class...never heard of the comic so i have no expectations. That show has been a complete delight so far.

    I plan to check out UA soon

    Deadly Class is only streaming, right?

    And is that cyborg with them? Was he in every DC super group other than suicide squad?

    Definitely checking this one out. One of my favorite actors is in it - Robert Sheehan. :cool:

    the show was predictable....I had the ending figured out early just not the specific cause.

    but I enjoyed it. The characters were surprisingly complex for a comic book...it says something when the talking chimpanzee butler is the least remarkable of all the characters.

    Which is better? Deadly Class or this show? My older daughter is now bugging me to watch this. She said all her friends are watching.

    I thought it was really good. It is very different in terms of ending from the comic and looks to be completely veering away from the original material. No clue how that will impact season 2.

    Decent show...season finale was lacking.

    Straight up weird. Only through episode 3. Not sure I want to keep doing unless it gets much better.

    Watching both Deadly Class and Umbrella Academy. Liking Deadly Class so far. Umbrella Academy seems so slow in pace.
