Sex Education continues to be a truly hilarious show that dives into diversity and covers many important topics in its second season.
Otis (Asa Butterfield) starts discovering his sexual self while dating Ola (Patricia Allison). He continues give sex advice at school until his mother, Jean (Gillian Anderson), begins working there and takes his clients. Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) struggles to decide upon a romance with the sweet Rahim (Sami Outalbali) or the closeted Adam (Connor Swindells).
The comedy is spot on and continues to be timeless as the styles could be from the 1980s while the electronics are modern day.
Sexuality, ableism, mental health and addiction are all wonderfully covered here. The welcome addition of Viv (Chinenye Ezeudu), who is genuinely concerned for Jackson (Kedar Williams-Stirling), show why advocacy is important.
Final say: Even better than the incredible first season. ★★★★★
