The result is a series with unmet potential (at least in the first half) that will likely receive unfavourable comparisons to shows like Black Mirror or Westworld. That is not to say that the series is bad, though. The ideas raised are timely, and the show’s vision of the future is depressingly plausible. Fans of science fiction will find much to like, and there are some great performances to enjoy. But even still, Class of ’09 is a little too uneven and unrefined to be great.Link: httpsss://exclaim.ca/film/article/class_of_09_series_review-created_by_tom_rob_smith
