Third-episode verdict: The Class

Posted on October 4, 2006 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

It had a promising start and it's continued to be promising. Only a few minor changes since the preview, with one character having been recast - it's for the better, since the original actor gave one particular relationship a touch of the “Ew!”, so makes the possible adultery intended not quite as inevitable as it was in the pilot.

It's not quite as clever as when it started - not saying much - but its characters are all reasonably entertaining, people are already starting to pair up and there's steady plot progression rather than “situation of the week”. It's like Friends, circa seasons two and three. Not quite as good as Friends season one, but what is? I'm going to carry on watching anyway.
