I feel like Gillian Anderson felt like lead this season.January 20, 2020 at 10:52 pm #1203296019
For me the undeniable MVP’s of the season were Emma Mackey and Aimee Lou Wood. Lou Wood was fun last season, but she really hit it out of the park with her material this season.January 22, 2020 at 3:02 pm #1203299406
I’ve fallen in love with the show during the second season. The first season was great too, but the second one is really special. Hopefully, it won’t be forgotten.January 23, 2020 at 12:44 pm #1203300641
This show really deserves a SAG nomination for its ensemble it reminds me of Orange is the New Black every actor gets something to do and they’re all good.January 23, 2020 at 1:13 pm #1203300694
Currently in the middle of the seventh episode, and this show is nothing but PHENOMENAL. Every episode is something really, truly special, and usually in shows with ensemble casts like this, I groan whenever we get to a certain character that I don’t care about, but every single character is compelling and interesting and so likable in their own way. I’m really, REALLY hoping that Netflix can get this back into comedy at the Emmys because with how barren the comedy field is shaping up to be, this could score some big nominations. It DESERVES to be scoring big nominations. This might be in my top five favorite Netflix shows now.January 23, 2020 at 3:46 pm #1203301375
I’m not the binge type but I finished this season in less than two days. It’s simply phenomenal. Both hilarious and heartbreaking. It deserves to be a major contender.January 23, 2020 at 4:04 pm #1203301393
That final stretch of episodes at the end of the season starting with Otis’ house party through the finale is unparalleled. This ensemble is fantastic and the writers really gave each character a chance to shine this season. The exploration of various taboo subjects, especially in a high school setting, was handled really well and honestly very realistically (well, maybe minus the sexy space version of “Romeo and Juliet”). The seventh episode is being highlighted for its #MeToo storyline, and that final image of the girls on the bus is really affecting and powerful. Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Ncuti Gatwa, Gillian Anderson, Connor Swindells and Aimee Lou Wood were all so great this season. The direction was also really assured this season, more so than last season. The show took some real visual risks this year. This should garner across the board awards attention, regardless of drama, though I don’t think it will barring a critics push. I’d already recommended season one to so many people, but will push harder for people to watch now that there is an even better second season here.February 15, 2020 at 10:07 am #1203347741
Does Sex Education deserve the Fleabag treatment?
I’ve just finished the second season and loved it. Can’t think of a funnier and more poignant show recently which not only is generous to its target audience of teens but also relevant for adults. It really developed the stengths of the first season I thought.
As a fan of Fleabag I couldn’t help noticing how the first season was almost completely shut out by the awards circuit…and was happy to see the second lavishly embraced. I can’t help hoping and wishing Sex Education has the same fate. There are a number of performances at least which I think are deserving. Can you see it happening? And if so who would you like to see receive nominations?
Antonio Banderas and Asier Etxeandia, Dolor y Gloria (Best Actor/Supporting Actor)
Emily Beecham, Little Joe (Best Actress)
Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren, The Good Liar (Best Actor/Actress)February 15, 2020 at 10:18 am #1203347754
It won’t be taken seriously because it’s about teenagers.February 15, 2020 at 10:58 am #1203347784
The show certainly deserved recognition in season one, and perhaps even more so in season two. I won’t hold my breath. Asa Butterfield and Ncuti Gatwa were better this year than season two. Emma Mackey had a little less to do, but was still stellar. She was top 3 in Supporting Actress for me last year. Gillian Anderson also had more to do this season for sure. The ensemble is just outstanding and would be worthy of a SAG Ensemble nom. Writing and directing are no-brainers as well, but unfortunately, I don’t see any nominations happening at all. While the show is a big hit, somewhat surprisingly, I find that the conversation seems to center around younger fans and not fans of all ages. Maybe we’ll be surprised and critics will rally around the show this summer, but outside of a surprise Anderson nomination, I don’t see it happening as well deserved as it would be.April 22, 2020 at 3:47 pm #1203441820
I just finished the second season and what a ride it was! Terrific ensemble and writing: the way the show deals with its characters is impeccable. It deserves to be nominated for series, writing, directing and supporting actress for Gillian Anderson.
