The show centers around Otis, the awkward, sort of nerdy son of a sex therapist.
The show is funny, heartfelt, inclusive, and full of sex.
Sex Education definitely plays into the high school stereotypes we all know...
In short, there are a bunch of reasons why it's become a massive hit.I tend to agree with this person, who categorized the show as a "MUST WATCH." There are so many good reasons to watch this show.

To be honest, it isn't really a thing in U.S. high schools anymore either...but we definitely recognize them when we see them.

Some noticed that the show also borrows from other high school shows like My So-Called Life.But it is enough its own thing that it doesn't feel like a rehash or a ripoff. It's a smart and elevated show that happens to pay tribute to that genre.
Still, some people didn't quite buy the reality of the show.
So if you try to transplant British humour into some kind of weird pseudo-American setting with colossal high schoo… https://t.co/V1JJFdtKbY— Adrian Bott (@Adrian Bott)1547455114.0

For many, though, there was no issue with the British-American hybrid high school.

The show got many with its perfect dialogue.It really is a very funny show. And not every line is as sex-centered as these... But there is a lot of that.
It's also quite beautifully shot.
Also, the cinematography in #SexEducation is STUNNING https://t.co/ss895MaJOc— Seth Imperial (@Seth Imperial)1547507711.0

The show will make you want to be friends with these girls.They're messy and complicated and funny and smart like real women are. It was refreshing to see that representation on TV!
And finally Season Two has dropped.

However, the first scene is disturbing.You may have seen it already, or maybe not, but if you go onto Netflix and start watching Sex Education season two well you'll be thrown face-first into a scene of hormonal adolescence.
It involves one helluva lot of erections.Not only erections but their only known antidote too - masturbation. And the producers really didn't hold back. I had to look away I'll admit it.
And fans don't know what to think.
The opening scene of season 2 #sexeducation... Otis!!!😂 https://t.co/BUZ43YsGoa— Brandon Fluellen (@Brandon Fluellen)1579272385.0
That opening scene was certainly... explosive.Another explained:
There is, and I cannot stress this enough, NOTHING to describe how thrilled I am at the opening montage of season 2, episode 1 of Sex Education.
