The series saw 40 million viewers streaming the series when it first came out. The show follows Asa Butterfield as a socially awkward teenager.

    "It was a Sex Education episode that I just loved hating and watch a couple more times. We see Otis being truly honest with himself and his feelings which Maeve definitely picked up on. Just a great episode overall."

    Episode 3 (Season 1)

    This is one of the highest-rated episodes of the series so far due to its controversial subject of abortion and how Meave ultimately dealt with her situation. This is also an important milestone that deepened the friendship between her and Otis.

    "It was a touching episode for Otis and Maeve despite the subject matter being explored in it. It's also the first time we see their relationship moving forward. It's definitely one of the best Sex Education episodes in my opinion."
