What to watch

Sex education season 3, by Laurie Nunn

 

Synopsis

In season 1, for those who are not familiar with the series, in Moordale High School in Wales, Maeve and Otis, sons of a sex therapist, create an underground sex therapy unit within their high school.

 

The series

Without giving anything away about the plot, I can tell you that season 3 is by far the best. The second one was a bit of a dud and the first one was a thunderbolt in the series universe.

Never before have sexual and identity issues been so well addressed in this series, which is aimed at teenagers and adults.

From episode to episode, Otis, Eric, Adam, Maeve, Viv, Ruby, Rahim, Ola, Lily, evolve through words. And it is precisely that which is put forward. Listening to others, their desires, their needs creates trust. The characters, both adults and teenagers, are all endearing, imperfect and so close to us that we seem to understand them in all the difficult moments they go through.

Thus the handicap, the non-binary, the teenagers who need to live in another universe like Lily, the athletes, the homosexuals, everyone is represented simply, without miserabilism, with a very realistic posture, whether it is about the sex scenes which will perhaps shock the adults more (we are not used to that and it is a pity) than the teenagers.

Adults, teachers and parents, are also imperfect, still looking for their identity, need to find their mark.

And this is the strength of “Sex Education”, to address everyone. We oscillate between laughter and tears and it’s a treat.

Sites have been created on sex education, a manual ((here) including a site on vulvas. Like what, it is never too late to learn!

A season 4 is unlikely because of the age of the actors.

Let’s enjoy this one and especially this soundtrack, a tribute to teen movies, to jazz and to the best possible rock songs: the music of “Ferris Bueller”, “Zoubizou-bizou”, the main song of  Mad Men series, David Bowie, and in jazz, Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers & Chet Baker. The music is composed by Oli Julian.

 

With Hope Haddon (Jemima Kirke from Girls), Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey, Kedar Williams-Stirling, Connor Swindells, Mimi Keene, Aimee Lou Wood and Alistair Petrie, Chaneil Kular, Simone Ashley, Tanya Reynolds, Patricia Allison and Mikael Persbrandt, Chinenye Ezeudu, George Robinson, Conor Donovan and Sami Outalbali.

Le sommet des dieux, by Patrick Imbert.

In Kathmandu, the Japanese reporter Fukamachi thinks he recognizes Habu Jôji, the mountaineer who was thought to have disappeared years ago. He seems to hold in his hands a camera that could change the history of mountaineering.

What if George Mallory and Andrew Irvine were the first men to have reached the summit of Everest, on June 8, 1924?

Only the little Kodak Vest Pocket with which they were to photograph themselves on the roof of the world could deliver the truth.

70 years later, in an attempt to solve this mystery, Fukamachi sets out on Habu’s trail. He discovers a world of enthusiasts thirsting for impossible conquests and decides to accompany him on the ultimate journey to the summit of the gods.
