I thought that this was a great episode of The Class, although I thought it was a little odd that they named it The Class Blows the Whistle even though that was only mentioned like once in the entire episode. But still, it was awesome.
Also, because this is quite a while after the fact, and we now know who Fern is and what she is like, it was interesting to see when we are first introduced to her, how she seems so nice and innocent. It seems to put a little negative spin on Richie because he lies, but at this point, she could still be his sister, or something, and not his wife. Although we pretty much assume that. But she doesn't sound mean, or anything, like she does in later episodes.
