Everyone Should Watch Netflix's 'Sex Education,' Let Me Educate You Why

It's fantastic, and my apartment is counting down the days until season two.


So, it's second-semester senior year. It's a time full of job applications, color coding planners and preparing yourself for adulthood.

OR it's a time when you start all of these new Netflix series. Which is exactly what my roommates and I did.

"Sex Education."

And no, not the one week class that we all took in high school. The show.

Everyone go watch it.

I honestly can not think of one bad thing to say about this show. It's hilarious, it's clever and it could not be more real.

The show is definitely meant for an older audience, but when I say that my roommate and I loved it, I mean we watched the entire series in one day. It's only eight episodes and it goes by so fast you won't even know what happened. Which is precisely why I am so upset that there isn't already a second season.

This show has a very diverse cast. You have Otis who is the awkward kid whose mom is a sex therapist. He hates all of it and doesn't know how to function at school. He wants to just get through high school and be able to get out of there.

Meanwhile, his best friend Eric is gay and in love with the school's all-star swimmer Jackson, who is kind of a jerk, but quickly develops into a character who is a pretty likable guy (in my opinion).

However, Jackson is in love with Maeve. Maeve is probably one of the best characters.

She lives in a trailer park alone because her family situation is not ideal and is judged by everyone at the school. She is hard to understand and is hard to get to know because she's so cold towards other people, but when she meets Otis, she decides that they are going to start doing a relationship service where they help couples and other people at their school with their love lives.

All while this is going on, there's a guy named Adam who is having all of this trouble of his own, mostly because his dad is the headmaster of their school and is really hard on him. You feel bad for him for the majority of the show, even though he goes out of his way to cause trouble sometimes.

Y'all, when I say this show is so good, it is so good. Netflix honestly killed it with this one.

They talk about conversations that a lot of people don't want to talk about. It brings up issues that people feel like they have addressed but really haven't.

Basically, what I'm saying is, if you haven't watched this show, you have to. I don't think you will regret it, and soon you will be joining my roommates and me in counting down the days until season two is out. And when that time comes, you are more than welcome to watch the entire season in one day with us.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

Kourtney Kardashian has decided to leave "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" after nearly 14 years and although we saw this coming, it breaks our heart that she won't be there to make us laugh with her infamous attitude and hilarious one-liners.

Kourtney is leaving the show because it was taking up too much of her life and it was a "toxic environment" for her.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
