Sex Education: Season 1 (2019)



Critic Consensus: Bawdy, heartfelt, and surprisingly wise, Sex Education is a raucous romp through a group of teenagers whose sexual misadventures are so thoughtfully rendered, adults could learn a thing or two from them.

Tv Season Info

Feeling pressured by the rumor that everyone in his class is having sex except him, awkward teenager Otis (Asa Butterfield) struggles with masturbating. It doesn't help that his mother, sex therapist Dr. Jean Milburn (Gillian Anderson), constantly meddles with his personal life. Things come to a weird turn when Adam (Connor Swindells), his school's resident bully, learns about Jean and asks Otis for help regarding his sex life with girlfriend Aimee (Aimee Lou Woods). The situation becomes even weirder when the school's resident bad girl Maeve (Emma Mackey) and Otis' gay best friend Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) persuade Otis to open a "sex therapy clinic" in school, with Maeve and Otis splitting the profits.

Critic Reviews for Sex Education Season 1

All Critics (58) | Top Critics (16)

Basically a comedy about randy sixth-formers -- think Peep Show, only 10,000 times less funny.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

One of the sweetest and wisest teen sex comedies going.

Between the simply stunning shots of English forests and hills and the charming cast, the world of Sex Education is one you genuinely want to live in.

Twenty-first-century teenagers are going to find real comfort and companionship in these characters, while those of us old enough to have seen those John Hughes movies at the cinema will wish Sex Education had been there for us.

Jan 11, 2019 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

Here is a series that pulls off a curious trick: It's a woke raunch comedy, replete with graphic and humiliating sexual experiences, yet bent on using them in a very sincere way.

Jan 9, 2019 | Full Review…

On occasion this is snort-out-loud funny. Swirling around in the emissions are some very deep concerns; these bouncing young actors, for the most part unknowns, leap in with an appealing abandon.

Sex Education has some of the most charismatic protagonists that allow for the series to be seen as far more than a conventional teen drama. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 3, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Sex Education is the sharpest, smartest - dare I say wokest? - comedy I've seen in years. It is the best portrayal of the chaotic neutrality of teenagers you'll ever see.

Feb 8, 2019 | Full Review…

It is so witty, and so sweet, and so smart, and I would have given anything to have had a show like this available to my generation as teenagers.

Feb 6, 2019 | Full Review…

The first half of this series is spectacular, which makes the messier second half seem bad in comparisson, but collectively they make a really good show
