Sex Education is super charming and sexy and funny and heartfelt. It’s one of the hottest shows on Netflix right now with audiences lapping up every second of it.
The first season was an unprecedented hit – and fans eagerly awaited the drop of season two.
Just days ago it finally came onto Netflix and we were all very excited to switch it on. But, uh oh, what’s that, what’s that opening scene.
Well it’s prettttttttttttty shocking.
Keep scrolling to check it out for yourself.
Sex Education premiered in Netflix just a few weeks ago.
And it is already quite the banger (pun 1,000,000 percent intended). Over 40 million accounts will watch it in its first month out.
He decides to go into business with Maeve (an edgy girl who he has a massive crush on) and dole out sex advice to the terribly horny teenagers at their school.
And you should definitely watch it if you haven’t already. It’s eight episodes of total delight.
Sex Education definitely plays into the high school stereotypes we all know…
The troublemaker, the jock, the nerds, the outcasts… But it does a great job of subverting those clichés and making its characters three-dimensional.
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.
I really don’t remember any marketing for the show, and to be fair, it seems like a tough show to market. It’s really raunchy but also sweet, and grown-up but about high-schoolers.
But Gillian Anderson should be enough of an endorsement for anyone to watch anything. She’s amazing.
As an American myself, it didn’t really occur to me that the way Sex Education illustrates high school might not be at all realistic for British people.
The landscape was gorgeous but didn’t seem particularly American to me. Though the students definitely wore letterman jackets. I didn’t realize that wasn’t a thing in UK high schools.
But house parties don’t happen in Britain?
And does everyone, even public school kids, wear uniforms?
Some thought that maybe it was to try to appeal to a wider audience, while others thought maybe it was an homage to those ’80s American high school movies. Not everyone was immediately on board…
As long as Kelly Clarkson exists in it, they’re happy.
And she does. She very much does.
The other option is that the people who made the show just really have no idea how British high school works.
Once I learned this, it made so much sense. And I kind of loved it even more! It is an homage to those movies, for sure, but it’s also its own unique thing.
I love that. Her character, of Otis’s mom, is also an updated version of the over-the-top, silly adults that appear in those films. It all makes sense now.
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.
I didn’t find the show “extremely odd” at all, but then again, I’m an American, super used to all those tropes.
This is funny. But also, there were so many kids in that show that weren’t portrayed as being cool. I don’t really know what he’s talking about.
This is a real thing that happens when Americans watch a lot of British TV or movies. Does this happen to you?
It really is a very funny show.
And not every line is as sex-centered as these… But there is a lot of that.
Seriously, Otis’s house on the side of a mountain and the landscape is to die for. I really want to know where it was shot.
I wholeheartedly agree with this take. It was also so effortlessly inclusive of all different sexualities and races, tackling the issues with grace and ease.
Ugh, that scene in the photo on the right…
I don’t want to spoil anything for you, but it’s just done so perfectly.
They’re messy and complicated and funny and smart like real women are. It was refreshing to see that representation on TV!
And FINALLY it’s here. After a year of waiting, twiddling our thumbs, and re-watching the first season, we have been granted new episodes and boy are they good.
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.
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.
Some are ecstatic, others are totally disturbed. It’s the marmite of the erectile compilation world.
One fan said:
That opening scene was certainly… explosive.
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.
The entire montage doesn’t seem to be available anywhere aside from Netflix so that’s where you’ve got to go to really enjoy it!
However we do have a snippet for you to, ahem, check out.
