In that series, there seem to be many powerful comedy scenes we live with the rebellious Insecure Otis who preaches building a sex school by offering a host of tips on it. The series opens its events where there is a clear image that puts a middle girl on the spot. Meeve wants to track down the shameful culprit, forcing Otis to make a difficult choice on an important day.
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.
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.
