Sex Education: Season 3

Ladies and Gentle can we agree that the third season of “Sex Education” has gone far and beyond and in my opinion, should be considered the best season thus far.


Program creator Laurie Nunn and writers – Mawaan Rizwan, Laura Neal, Sophie Goodhart, Bisha K. Ali, Freddy Syborn, and Laura Hunter have delivered another successful season of one of Netflix’s beloved series, starting with the captivating season visuals.
This season has without a doubt delivered on its focus on teens coming to age and growing into young adults, taking the future into their own hands, and taking responsibility for their actions.
Never have I enjoyed Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Eric’s (Ncuti Gatwa) relationship as much as I did this season, having seen where they first began to where they are now is heartwarming to see and appreciate.
We left the United Kingdom of Great Britain this season and visited two different countries, this made the season easier to digest and refreshing to visit other places rather than stick to one location for the entirety of the series.
The first location we visited even though both locations happened around the same time is Nigeria, this part of the series was centered around our ever charismatic and flamboyant “Eric Effiong”. One thing that’s known throughout Nigeria and the rest of the world about this specific location in Africa is that same-sex relationships are not tolerated, at some points in history, couples in such relationships would be stoned to death so this in essence was great character development for Eric.
The other location we got to visit as a school trip for Moordale High was France, a.k.a “The City of Love”, which I hardly disagree with lol… But for Otis and Maeve (Emma Mackey) this was the perfect place for them to get everything out in the open, it just needed both of them being left by the school bus for it to happen.
What makes Sex Education such a wonderful series to watch is its approach in being light yet funny and moving for a series focused mostly on teens and that fiery stage in their lives called Adolescent.
All our favorite cast members return including a new face in “Cal Bowman” played by (Dua Saleh) and “Hope Haddon” by (Jemima Kirke) as the new headmaster of Moordale Secondary School.
Adam Groff played by (Connor Swindells) is such a good person though, I hate seeing him being mistreated and not appreciated, especially after taking the blame for Rahim’s accidental throw out the window lol… That certainly become my favorite episode, just imagine the driver and his family the moment they were hit with that unexpected heat-seeking missile lol…
Or how we talk about “Anwar Bakshi” played by (Chaneil Kular) who caught an allergic reaction to Strawberry flavored condoms but thought he had an STD because of the poor education he was taught by the teachers.
Say what you want about Sex Education but it stays true to its name. I’ve learned more from Sex Education about sex than I have from my parents.
This season went so much deeper than we usually see, not only do we get to see Ruby in a different light but we are also shown that Mr. Groff had gone through so much as a child, being mistreated by his father and brother only caused him to close off to both his wife and son.
There is so much more to a person than their outer appearance. Ruby seemed like a snob at first but after realizing that she takes care of her father my opinion of her changed immediately. 
Lily Iglehart went through a lot this season, with her book being published and being humiliated in front of the entire school, it’s only a miracle that she pulled her socks up and some of that has to do with Otis as well. 
However, I know a lot of people that if they had gone through the same situation would have thought of suicide so I am thankful the series didn’t go that route.
Season three has so much to offer fans, let me know what some of your favorite moments of the season were in the comments section below.
Thanks for reading…Sex Education

"I really wanted to explore how dangerous I think shame can be when it is weaponized. And I think so many people have had experiences at school which make them feel ashamed about their own sexuality or their own identity or the way that they express themselves."
