The second season just dropped and I really like the show.
It about Otis Milburn, a teen whose mother is a sex therapist. Otis has overheard a log of her counseling sessions, and has gained a bit of knowledge (but no practice) about sex. At the urging of Meave, he sets himself up as a sex counselor for the rest of his class.
Otis is extremely embarrassed about it all, and it’s not helped by his mother, who is completely sex positive and unconcerned about his boundaries. There’s also his gay best friend, and various other people and relationships.
Gillian Anderson plays Otis’s mother, and she’s absolutely hilarious as her deadpan delivery is perfectly designed to embarrass Otis the most. Asa Butterfield has starred in several films, including Martin Scorsese’s Hugo and is great a Otis.
Its language is very open and specific, which may put some people off, but it’s a realistic look at how teens talk about sex.
It can be laugh-out-loud funny, and deeply moving, even in the same episode.
Has anyone else caught this?
