Exam season is upon us, and while many students are cramming in as much revision as possible, I thought it would be a great idea to spend an entire day watching, and completing Sex Education season two. So yes, while my degree may be in jeopardy, I still think it was a productive use of my time this season is just as good, if not better than the first.
Season two picks up right after season one ends and welcomes back all of our favourite characters, as well as some new and interesting faces. Like our characters, the show seems to have matured from its first outing and really has embraced what the show is about: representation and normalisation of growing up, sexuality and gender identity.
This season has shown the problems of the world today under a magnifying glass and covers what is normal and what is clearly not okay. The show isn’t just a comedy full of sex gags, but rather a serious and relatable look at well, sex education. Yes, while you watch it you may laugh, maybe even cry, but for the majority of it, it will help enlighten you and maybe even learn a thing or two.
The show takes an honest approach to each of these characters and makes sure to do them justice
We get to watch all of our favourite characters dealing with the struggles of being a teenager. The show takes an honest approach to each of these characters and makes sure to do them justice, having meaningful development over the course of the eight episodes. New characters are a plentiful and welcome addition, further improving representation, and are sure to be many fan favourites. All of the storylines were engaging and I didn’t feel a twinge of annoyance when it switched to another during an episode like in other shows (I’m looking at you Bran Stark).
While many of you are busy getting an actual education, maybe consider a Sex Education as well (see what I did there?) as it’s sure to be a lot more interesting than what’s on ReCap.
