    Premise: Word of the “sex school” gets out as a new head teacher tries to control a rambunctious student body and Otis attempts to hide his secret hookup.

    Watched the whole season and I have to say this was my favorite one. They do an amazing job at handling all the different characters. The quality of this show is just top-notch.

    Am I the only one thinking that this show, while trying to be super edgy, is actually super consensual

    I cringed a lot and most of the characters are really unlikable and not in a good way.

    Binged watch the show, and what an absolute delight! The best season and one of the few shows in which every single character is so lovable (except you Hope)

    Aimee’s also severely under-exploited. I felt like they kinda didn’t know what to do with her after last season. We get only two sessions of her with Jean that pretty much lead to nothing really interesting story-wise.

    I also didn’t really liked the way her break-up was so anticlimactic. She deserved big moments.

    The best part about this show is how so many stories that would feel forced or inorganic in other shows feel so completely natural and right. The worse part is that the writers are cowards. Maeve and Otis should not be endgame. After stretching the confession over 3 seasons, and after introducing two compelling love interests in S3 (Ruby and Isaac have redeemed themselves as characters in this season for me), even ignoring the fact that Maeve is leaving right away, I’m not interested in them together. Ruby and Otis have such interesting chemistry, and there’s actual depth to the characters that can be explored through this relationship (which is not true for Motis anymore). Isaac, after getting a lot of backlash in S2, has been rewritten to become a feasible, non-villainous guy who likes Maeve for a change, and that scene with the two of them becoming intimate was honestly great, my favorite “sex” scene in the show by a mile.

    I finished last nite. Great season. I’m always impressed how they give even supporting characters bits to shine.
    Some seasons have to have supporting characters with less storyline for others to shine. We had great stories with alien girl. And I’m glad that they didn’t drag out Adam and Eric. They were clearly in different times in coming out stages.

    also, who thinks Gillian will become head of school some how. The telegraph it when Aliem girl mother said she wished someone like her should be at school.

    Connor Swindells and Mimi Keene deserve to be Emmy competitive. Both are giving majestic performances here. Simultaneously hilarious and dripping in emotional nuance.

    Also talk about time for a SAG ensemble nom. In addition to the aforementioned, Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey and Aimee Lou Wood are all doing incredibly layered work in their storylines. Plus, in yet another sign of a great ensemble, performances from smaller cast members like Chaneil Kular, Anne Marie Duff and especially Rakhee Thakrar also manage to standout.

    HBOMax prioritising Sex Lives of College Girls at TCA makes me feel like perhaps there is an industry feeling one of these sorts of shows breaks through.

    Parrot Analytics says Sex Ed is the most in-demand show in the world today, #3 in the UK but 27th in the US (which perhaps explains the BAFTA bias). (Most popular market is India where it’s #1).

    This is just one of my favorite shows on TV right now and I could gladly watch another eight seasons of this cast pairing off with one another on various journeys. The strength of this ensemble is how they are all able to carry stories of varying importance in any given episode and still make an impact. It is really impressive how so many supporting characters were given stories this year and that, while their screentime may not have been plentiful, they made the most of their time. I thought this season got thematically stronger as it went on and was ultimately very satisfying while setting up so many stories for next season. My primary concern is that this felt like a goodbye for Emma Mackey, which would be tough because Maeve is so integral to the show but Mackey is an actress deserving of so many opportunities that I hope come her way. Asa Butterfield has evolved in this role and has made me more excited for his future as an actor with subsequent seasons. Ncuti Gatwa is probably best in show again for me this season, I find him absolutely electric and you can tell that the writers love writing for Eric. Gillian Anderson was very good again this season, but with this show’s stacked female supporting cast, I don’t think she’s at the top of my list. That distinction probably belongs to Mimi Keene, who absolutely smashed it this season and made a massive impression while completely evolving her character, something I never could’ve predicted before the season began. My one big gripe with the season is that she practically disappears after Episode 5, which is quite a shame. Connor Swindells continues to impress the hell out of me, and I really don’t think he gets the credit he deserves for the depth he brings to this hilarious but emotional character. Aimee Lou Wood is always a riot and I cannot get enough of her, and so I do wish we had more time with Aimee, especially her sessions with Jean and the evolution of her relationship with Steve, though I like how things ended for her and what the character’s journey will be moving forward (especially if her number one Maeve is gone). Kedar Williams-Stirling and Dua Saleh had a really interesting and messy storyline, and I loved how the writers and actors approached that arc, and don’t take for granted that we don’t see stories like this on TV often. The big addition of the season, Jemima Kirke, worked for me, though I would’ve loved having more time with her to explore Hope’s entire background instead of through rushed exposition. She turned downright villainous by the end, and I’m not sure if we’ll see her again, but I do think there’s more to explore. I guess that’s the common complaint I have for the show — I wish we had more episodes and more time with these characters, which is a testament to the actors and writers for creating a compulsively likable and interesting experience. I have to say that there were some directorial flourishes this season that also really impressed me, and I found “Episode 5” in particular gorgeous (the lighting of the gas station scene was beautiful). All in all, another great season of this show that I so love. Excited about season 4 but wondering how long we’ll have in this world. As long as all stories are satisfactorily wrapped up by the end, I’m glad to stay on the ride however long it lasts.
