I really, really enjoyed watching the first five episodes of this show over the Christmas break. Sex Education is so wonderfully British. The wit and the unexpectedness of the narrative. I really, really enjoyed it and it’s so nice to see Gillian Anderson again, in a role that is so far removed from everything that I’ve seen her in before.
Read my full review of the first five episodes here: We All Need a Little ‘Sex Education,’ a Brilliant British Teen Drama/Comedy Coming To Netflix (ClicTheCity).
More than Gillian Anderson, though, I was so wonderfully surprised by such a magnificent performance by Emma Mackey. Her Maeve is so fascinating and engaging. She really draws you in and I’m watching the show primarily for her.
I really, really love this show and I can’t wait to finish the last three episodes since I only got to see the first five episodes on a screener from Netflix over the holiday.
This is such an enjoyable show and I hope it moves to a second and a third season because I’m really, really invested in the characters already.
