24. Sex Education

Number of seasons: 3

Who it stars: Asa Butterfield, Emma Mackey, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Aimee Lou Wood, Alistair Petrie, Tanya Reynolds, Patricia Allison are all part of the Sex Education cast.

What it’s about: The series is set in rural Wales in the local high school. Teenagers are all figuring out who they are and the truth about sex, but their sex education isn’t all that great. Two students get together to start a business offering advice and tips to help their students. The one offering the advice is the son of a sex therapist, so he knows what he’s talking about.

Of course, there are some hilarious moments throughout the series. It’s a comedy as well as a drama. We get to see just how wrong people can get sex education and just how weird and wonderful some fetishes and interests can be. At the same time, there’s a lot of focus on sexual identity offering a full story for all.

Why watch it: One of the reasons you’ll want to watch the series as an Outlander fan is Tanya Reynolds. You’ll know her as Isobel Dunsany, but she plays Lily in the British dramedy.

There’s also the fact that it’s pure entertainment. There are elements that focus on women standing out on their own, but this is about identity and finding love as well as figuring out sexuality and understanding the topics of sex.
