“Is this our reunion?!”
Class of ’07 premiered on Prime Video on March 17th 2023 with eight episodes available to stream now. The Australian comedy-drama series stars Emily Browning, Megan Smart, Caitlin Stasey, Steph Tisdell, and Sana’a Shaik. Each episode runs for approximately 30-35 minutes.
After tempers flare at a ten year reunion at an all-girls high school, a global catastrophe strikes, leaving them stranded together on an island as they must figure out a way to survive.
Here is the trailer:
Class of ’07 is the perfect mix of The Wilds and Mean Girls, making this a binge-watcher’s dream. Does it do enough to earn a watch? Let’s find out…
Fantastic characters with layers.
I was worried that a lot of the characters would fit neatly into tropes and while some did, others broke through barriers with charm. These girls were hilarious, fierce, and such a pleasure to watch on screen. The chemistry between them was so believable and I really thought I was witnessing former frenemies at a high school reunion under the worst possible circumstances ever!
Stand out performances go to Emily Browning as Zoe and Caitlin Stasey as Saskia, who could give Regina George a run for her money! I loved them!
If you’re looking for a lighter take on shows like The Wilds and Yellowjackets, Class of ’07 finds a happy medium and is a lot of fun! The episodes are short, which made this perfect to binge-watch over the weekend. There wasn’t too much fluff to sit through, which allowed the audience a chance to connect to these characters while enjoying all of the end-of-the-world outrageous fun.
This series was really close to perfection for me and exactly the kind of show I love, but the crude/gross-out humor wasn’t my cup of tea. I would have been fine with just a little bit of it, but it really kept pushing the envelope in this department when it could have taken more time to flesh out some of the other characters instead.
Either way, by the time I got to the end of the series, I wanted more! I hope this series gets picked up because it really is a lot of fun.
So am I in or out?
Class of ’07 is a delightful treat with incredible characters and an addicting premise that doesn’t disappoint!

A VACATION TO DIE FOR…
When sisters, Nina and Gemma are vacationing in Hawaii with their friends, they get invited to an exclusive party on a private island that seems too good to be true. There’s only one rule…they can’t miss their ferry at midnight or they’ll have to wait until morning to leave the island. Only they didn’t realize that breaking this rule meant they would be hunted down on the island one by one.
Who will make it off the island alive?
I hope you enjoy my new island thriller!
