The third season of Sex Education is a masterclass in brutally honest, brilliantly heartfelt comedy, as well as how every school should handle sex-ed.
One of my favorite Netflix shows is back with another season and I couldn’t have been happier. I basically binged the whole season in less than two days. And oh boy! The show gaves us another wonderfully raunchy and riotous season filled with lovable characters and very well thought and insightful inclusion.
After the almost purely sexual themes of the first two seasons, this time, the writers gave us drama, real drama.
Let’s start with the Moordale drama. After the events of the second season, the school has a new head teacher, Hope Haddon (Jemima Kirke), and she didn’t come to play. Sadly, we don’t get to see her real motivation to take Moordale back to the 1950s, but her plan gets sabotaged by one of the greatest student protests ever. I literally fell off my couch laughing during that episode.
In addition, this new season gave us another master class in writing. During our students’ new term (and our new season), Otis (Asa Butterfield), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa), Maeve (Emma Mackey) learn that relationships will always meet conflict. Sometimes in the hard way. And this may be Sex Education‘s most important detail.
Should you watch it?
Every show envies the kind of character development and narrative strength on display here, and Sex Education makes it look easy. Another great season with an expert writing that explains the complexity of growing up and becoming comfortable with your body and sexuality.
