TV Series Info
Meet Otis Milburn — an inexperienced, socially awkward high school student who lives with his mother, a sex therapist. Surrounded by manuals, videos and tediously open conversations about sex, Otis is a reluctant expert on the subject. When his home life is revealed at school, Otis realizes that he can use his specialist knowledge to gain status. He teams up with Maeve, a whip-smart bad-girl, and together they set up an underground sex therapy clinic to deal with their fellow students’ weird and wonderful problems. Through his analysis of teenage sexuality, Otis realises he may need some therapy of his own.

The only problem I had with it is that it tries to act like its a 90s American school rather than be a Welsh school. It was a great setting though and had very good locations etc. I just felt it tried too hard to please the audience.
Great character development with a funny and enjoyable narrative. I really felt a connection with characters and loved all the different problems they had with sexual health and how they dealt with it, it taught me as well as entertaining me.
The shots did the job, it was like something out of the Breakfast Club. When dealing with the subject of sex, the cameras plays with the humour making funny angles that helps the drama on stage.
Asa once again is great at playing his role, his awkward teenage act is funny and relatable. All the newcomers like Emma, Ncuti and Aimee have great chemistry on screen with their other acting counterparts.
