Class of '07: The Beginning of the End of the World
May 24, 2023 1:40 PM - Season 1 (Full Season) - Subscribe

A girls' school 10-year reunion coincides with a flood that seems to have wiped out the entire world.

"And there are plenty of laughs here, particularly when the show leans into Australian humour (see: 'the poco' as slang for the apocalypse), as well as some sweet, yeah-the-girls scenes." -- Katie Cunningham, The Guardian

"Class of ‘07 may be an unapologetically Aussie import, but the universality of intense female friendships, high school bullies, and the base need for survival is a tale as old as time." -- Anna Govert, Paste

"Even though it feels like we have more than enough shows that fall into the 'high school girls stranded and trying to survive' category, Class of ’07 is a standout for lightening the tone and providing some solid jokes and excellent performances amid the cataclysm." -- Liz Kocan, Decider

Class of '07 is streaming in the US on Amazon Prime.

At first blush, it seems kinda like "Yellowjackets but a sitcom", but it tells a unique story with three-dimensional characters and a good mix of comedy and drama, not taking itself too seriously but not hamming up obvious jokes.

Highly recommended, and I hope they get to keep telling this story.

When I read the description, my first reaction was, "Wait, I thought this show was about the FBI or something?"

Turns out that's Class of '09. Wikipedia: Not to be confused with Class of '07."

I loved this show. The humor was just over-the-top enough and well placed to make the post-apocalypse stuff sting less, not too much so it lost it's edge and impact. Well done.

I thought it was a mixed bag. Enjoyable overall. The deeper they went into the characters and their motivations, the more the show worked for me.
