Eric, Maeve and Otis 

Review of "Sex Education" 1/20/18 by Suzanne
airs now on Netflix

Asa Butterfield is very good as Otis as he stars in this is truly awful show about teens in a UK high school who seem to think and talk about nothing except for sex. Otis is a virgin; his mother (Gillian Anderson) is a sex therapist. He and his friends use her methods to help the other students with their problems (and to make money doing so).

The show is not good. It reminded me of bad 80's sex comedies like "Porky's" and "Revenge of the Nerds." Otis was good, but everyone else's characters were over-the-stop campy and obvious. His best friend, Eric (who's both black and gay) is like a bad 70's stereotype. When they showed a guy (Adam, played by Connor Swindells) having sex with his girlfriend at the beginning, I thought he was a grown man, not a high school kid. It was very jarring to see him later as the school bully. He looks way too old to be a high school student.

Honestly, I couldn't even keep watching because it was so awful and unfunny.

NEW COMING OF AWKWARD AGE DRAMEDY SEX EDUCATION, COMING TO NETFLIX

Hollywood, CA - November 28, 2017 -- Sex, relationships and insecurity are intertwined in Sex Education, a new charming coming-of-awkward-age dramedy, debuting globally on Netflix in 2019.

Meet Otis Thompson – a socially awkward high school virgin who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.

"We are delighted to bring Laurie Nunn’s brilliant creation to life with such a gifted team. Netflix is an exceptional partner and we are thrilled to go on this journey together," said Jamie Campbell, Eleven.

“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the Eleven team, creator Laurie Nunn, and executive producer and director Ben Taylor to bring Sex Education -- a distinctive, fresh and witty examination of the universally awkward teenage experience -- to our members around the world,” said Cindy Holland, Vice President of Original Content, at Netflix.

A Netflix original series, Sex Education is set to begin production in the U.K. in spring 2018. Sex Education is produced by Eleven, with executive producers Jamie Campbell and Joel Wilson. Laurie Nunn is creator and writer. Ben Taylor (Catastrophe) will direct and executive produce.
