    Going by the release for last two seasons, we probably won't get Season 3 until this time next year. Season 2 was filmed between May and September last year.

    I really enjoyed this.
    It covers so many aspects of teen, and indeed adult relationships.

    Anne Marie Duff is a great addition as Maeve's mother.
    Actually, all of the casting is spot on.
    The school principal and Adam could pass for real life father and son.

    Looking forward to a return next year.

    Quite liked S2, not as much as S1. Some of the cringe moments are a bit too much for me, and some of the dramatic timing really wrecks my head. Otis texting Meave right before he had the conversation with Ola for example.

    My fear is that the pace is too high for sustainability. They're either gonna need to keep adding characters. Or they're gonna run out of potential links between them.

    Was not inspired after 3 episodes, but it really took off after, and I really enjoyed it. So many great little stories in it

    The one kind of irritating part is 'will they won't they.' I think it has been dragged out too long now, and I don't really care for the outcome.

    Just finished series 2, tried my best to space it out but four days was really all I could wait from start to finish. A brilliant show and series, I think it was just as good, if not better, than the first. It feels a bit short at eight episodes though, could do with a couple more. Can't wait for series 3!

    It`s enjoyable to watch, but the praise it get`s is ridiculous. The only thing it really does is propagate homosexuality, same-sex relationship/marriage, feminism, trangender and teenage sexualisation. They dont educate sex, they promote it. But this seems to be everything mainstream media is caring for today.

    Is that really all you took from the show? It's very funny and has a lot of heart. Teenage sexualisation aside, what's wrong with the rest of what you claim it "propagates"?

    I said it`s enjoyable, but yes that`s all I took from it.

    Nothing particularly wrong with it, it`s just painfully obvious and you can see that there is an agenda behind it that tries to promote this subjects to young adults.

    Was there a transgender character? I'm only three episodes into Series 2, but I didn't notice anyone so far.


    And are they 'promoting' anything, or just recognising the reality of teenage life?

    Half of Eric's screen time in S1 is showing him cross-dressed.

    There is a difference between portray a topic and promote it.

    Meave is a storybook "feminist", Eric is "gay", Rahim is "gay", Anwar is "gay", Adam experiments his "sexuality" and is probably "gay" too. Ola also experiments her "sexuality" and is probably "bi", Lily god knows what she is maybe an alien, Jackson has two mothers. Come on as if this mirrors any sorts of reality :), when there are about 5% of the population, that see themselves as "homosexuals".

    If you want to see an unbiased portrayal of this themes, I recommend to check out the TV Series Skam.

    You know there's a difference between cross-dressing and transgenderism, right? Though you are slightly exaggerating his dressing anyway.

    What's all the "quotes" about? I guess if TV dramas showed ordinary life all the time, they might not be that interesting or attractive.

    I am no specialist you know, just address what I think. :)

    I don`t like to define people by their sexuality or their beliefs.

    I'm two episodes into season 2 and watched them a while ago. I couldn't name the gay character without looking up IMDB (or seeing now it's Eric from your later posts). 'Education' in the show's title is as much about functioning in life itself and the sex is partly a vehicle for that rather than riding lessons for the viewer. The show is an exaggeration, like much pop culture, we only have to see the likes Otis doing stuff in the car in 2.01 for that. There is well known term in developmental psychology about adolescence as a time of storm and stress. https://link.springer.com/referenceworkentry/10.1007%2F978-1-4419-1695-2_111 The adults in the show make a mess of things as much as their offspring or students.

    It's almost as if you're saying that gay, bi, feminist don't actually exist - that they're not real. Is that what you're saying?

    And just to confirm - there is NO transgender character involved, so you can wind back down your outrage on that one just a notch.

    never said there is a transgender character, said it promotes it. Also there is nothing to be outraged of.

    How exactly does it promote something that doesn't appear in it?

    We already were on that point, Eric's cross-dressing. Yeah for you it`s a big difference, for me it amounts to the same thing.

    So for yourself, putting on a bra, knickers and a dress would have a similar impact to spending a few years taking heavy doses of female hormones, cutting off your genitals, turning them inside out and giving you breast implants?

    It amounts to the same thing, right?

    You're really proving the point of the show about the need for sex education.

    I don`t really know why you feel the need to twist all my words, it was not my intention to offend you with anything.

    I'm not offended. I'm just pointing out that your complaint about the show 'promoting transgender' was completely unfounded.

    IMO, your complaint about the show promoting anything was unfounded.

    I see. It`s just recognising the reality of teenage life then. :)

    Season 3 has been announced


  • Registered Users, Moderators, Sports Moderators Posts: 6,172 Mod ✭✭✭✭ yerwanthere123


    Great, already looking forward to it. There was no danger of it never coming back.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,790 ✭✭✭ EoinMcLovin

    I'd say there is probably 2 seasons of story left, knowing Netflix they cancel some shows after 3 seasons. They could probably do one season set during school term and another during summer holiday or school trip.

    Really enjoyed the first 2 seasons
    Glad to hear their making another ðŸ˜
