Unrealistic but enjoyable
30 December 2018 | by maryhewc-96818See all my reviews

Obviously the basic premise is ridiculous - a school for teenaged killers to beat up on each other and learn how to kill more effectively. But the moral quandaries and characters are interesting enough, and it comes with decent filming and a good sound track.

It is largely a cliche high school series from the 1980's thus far, with the usual social stratification made a little more interesting at least. But considering the amount of characters belonging to hate groups and other forces of destruction, the pilot episode did a good job of sending a much more inclusive message without getting preachy about it.

The moral (or immoral?) messages regarding violence are very complex, and I don't share the fears of some other reviewers that this show might be endorsing murdering sprees. What it does do is make people think about things a bit more.
