There seem to be many comedic scenes in this powerful series where Insecure Otis proposes to set up a school sex school, a decision based on a wide range of advice he has always given on the idea of sex. The series begins with events where Eric realizes that Otis has fallen in Mayf. But the young sexual therapist finds himself torn when the hot man tries to help with his secret crush.
Twenty-first-century teenagers are going to find real comfort and companionship in these characters, while those of us old enough to have seen those John Hughes movies at the cinema will wish Sex Education had been there for us.
As Sex Education becomes more confident and aware of what it is and what it wants, it starts to feel great. It feels healthy and funny and sexy and complicated and sad. And perhaps most importantly, it feels like a story well-told.
