8. Sex Education 

The only question that might linger on your mind after watching this sharp-witted comedy is where and when is it set? All the characters are British but with a different accent. The school set up shown in the series is more like a high school from the 1980s USA than the sort of comprehensive most Brits would have attended. 

Well, much to your surprise, The reality is that the ambiguity of time and location is a deliberate move by Laurie Nunn to pay homage to a John Hughes-style teen world that a generation grew up watching on TV.

The show follows the fortunes of Otis (Asa Butterfield), Maeve (Emma Mackey), Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) as they navigate their school days, their parents, and the challenges that come with both. Also starring Gillian Anderson as Otis’s sex therapist mother, this is a critically acclaimed show not just for its comedy – but for the bold way it challenges important issues to head-on.
