Class Season 1 Episode 2

We find out a little more about our British Scoobies this week.

Mostly the details concern Ram, the Jock (Fady Elsayed) who is suffering more than he lets on about the death of his girlfriend and the loss of his leg. Tanya (Vivian Oparah), the math whiz, does little more than complain about how strict her mother is, but does manage to bond with Ram when she talks about her grief over the sudden death of her father.

The monster of the week is revealed in the on the nose episode title and is defeated through a Doctoresque speech from Ram about the need to move past loss.

As far as the rest of the team. April (Sophie Hopkins) is sweet and nice and of no real use. Charlie (Greg Austin) the alien prince is starting to become even more of an annoying elitist. Matteusz (Jordan Renzo) is absent and Ms. Quill (Katherine Kelly) is fast becoming my favorite if (delightfully) deranged character. Her considering which chess piece would make the best offensive weapons is so endearing.
