No show has any right to be this good, this early. Those of you not watching, you’re missing out. Just look at the title of this one. And in case you’re wondering – yes, it’s 100% literal. And coming just off Extremis too… Just goes to show how you can do exquisite meta, but in very very different ways. <3

(If this show is not renewed it’ll be the biggest waste since Firefly, just sayin’.)

This post contains no spoilers beyond episode 7 and PLEASE DO NOT POST SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS. Thank you. <3

I’m sure one reason there’s been such a gap between the other reviews and this one, is that I’m not sure I can do this one justice. The final three episodes are all so good (and in such different ways) that I just sort of falter.

My initial reaction upon watching this episode was this:



I knew I should probably have started to write up my thoughts sooner, but damn, for the most part my brain has quite simply been doing that gif on repeat out of sheer delight.

Lots of sections below the cut. ☺ And, as before, no spoilers beyond this episode.

There is a difference between ‘This is a really good show, I really like it, I can’t wait see what happens next’ to ‘This show now has a hotline to my soul’.

It’s sort of unnerving and wonderful when the latter happens. It doesn’t happen all that often (and I don’t watch all that much TV, honestly) and it takes a certain kind of show, that special something that probably changes from person to person. For Class, for me, ‘Nightvisiting’ did it. I don’t think any show has ever won me over so completely so quickly… (With the possible exception of Firefly. But then I was ready & prepped to love Firefly, all of fandom singing its praises, and I bought the DVDs to watch. Class took me unawares.)

And we’re onto the season proper!! The thing with short seasons is that there’s no space for filler episodes; and this is very clear in Class. I don’t think it’s spoilery to say that from now on, the episodes are pretty much character-centric, each character getting their own episode (more or less).

Happy Birthday Doctor Who. This was not deliberate, but my thoughts on the first episode of Class are finally done. No spoilers for later stuff, enjoy.

(This is long. I didn’t know how to tackle it, but in the end I decided to do it episode-by-episode, as that way I hopefully wouldn’t miss anything, and the episodes are so good that they all deserve a write-up.)

In short: SHOW IS AMAZING AND EATING MY HEAD. ♥
