Class: Detained

The almost inevitable “detention” episode of a school-based show manages to avoid any overt references to The Breakfast Club by becoming the classic “everybody is trapped in a confined space” bottle episode, a bit of an “everybody acts out of character” episode and the “everybody confesses their dark secrets” episode. And a Doctor-Lite episode where Miss Quill is absent for most of it.

I liked the characters taking a moment to figure out whether it was an asteroid or meteor.

The secrets being revealed helped make this feel like a balanced “young adult” show rather than something that would be kid-friendly apart from the swearing and gore.
