Netflix Summary:

Despite the ministrations of sex therapist mom Jean and encouragement from pal Eric, Otis worries that he can’t get it on. He’s not the only one.

Notes:

  • I was thoroughly confused by the British accents – was this a show about British transplants in America? But then the best friend and the bully shouldn’t have had the British accent too? Finally, I saw a left-hand-drive car and realised that no, the show is set in the UK after all. Now my confusion is about whether British kids also drive to school, and if British schools also have American style logos. What is with that big blocky M for Moordale?
  • I think this show dropping a truth bomb that even if you’re having sex in school, you’re probably making a mess of it compared to what everybody else around you thinks you’re doing, is what makes it so funny. The voluntary display of Member of Unusual Size and other such jokes are just a bonus.
  • I don’t remember being quite so embarassed by what my parents did when I was in school. But then my parents weren’t sex therapists.
  • The pilot has lived up to the hype. I’m hooked.
