I'm just finishing season 3 of Sex Education and almost jumped off my seat when I notice this detail. In Episode 8, Season 3, Lily was getting ready for school and as she sat by her vanity table, I immediately noticed that violet jewel shaped bottle. It was no other than the infamous Alien by Thierry Mugler! For those who haven't seen the show, Lily Iglehart is one of the main characters known for her obsession with aliens and extraterrestrial beings. The fact that the filmmakers decided to include the perfume really impressed me. If you haven't watched the show, please give it a go since I think it definitely worth the watch.
It was described as "a phobia of the sound of other people eating" and kinda played off as the character who has it just beeing a bit of a bitch and annoyed. At least that was my impression.
Makes me sad to see misophonia reduced to a phobia and just eating sounds again. I would love to see some genuine representation that explains what this condition is actually like. I'd love to hear what others think about this though
it's the first time I've ever seen a non binary character in a show or anything and it feels good seeing them do it accurately
The way the characters grow on you is what I like most. It also has a good message most episodes. I could take or leave the humor, but what other shows really draw you in with the characters?
I've been trying to figure it out, but I have to say I'm a bit stumped.
Otis--maybe an Enneagram 9 with a 1-wing (9 traits: peacemaking, conflict-avoidant creature of habit; not always the most in touch with his own feelings but incredibly empathetic with others; doesn't like to go out of comfort zone or take the initiative; 1 traits: strong sense of moral compass/wanting to do the right thing to the point where he goes too far and becomes a jerk); ISFJ?
Maeve--hard to pin down an Enneagram type but maybe INFJ?
Ruby--maybe an Enneagram 3 (achievement-oriented, which to her means popularity; worries about what people think of her; worst fear is being humiliated; confident--knows what she wants and goes for it)?
Eric--no idea tbh.
Vivienne is obviously written as an character with ASD, so I won't focus on her.
Lily really stands out to me as a more nuanced portrayal of someone on the spectrum. With her BIG special interest, intricate fantasy world, disregard for societal norms, verbal boldness, sensory stimulation and fidgeting via rubbery finger tentacles. She also has some problems with relating to and picking up on her >!girlfriends home situation!<
Adam has some trouble with learning and potential dyslexia, which is without proper support generally more prevelent among us in the spectrum. But what really makes him the most interesting to me is a struggle to understand, and a sort of disconnect, between his conscious mind and subconscious emotion. I myself have a hard time wording or even identifying how I feel, and it can take hours just for me to figure out what's going on deeper than my observation layer. It's easy for that confusion and struggle to directly translate into pure frustration or anger.
>! And with his relationship with Eric. Just trying to make sense of the current situation and his wants and his partners feelings, only to be accused of starting a fight! No, Eric! He's just trying to make sense of it all and analyze your feelings! !<
Why do nerutypicals belive we are arguing when we are asking questions about behavior or feelings? To ask a question isn't the same as to question someone!
>! Another thing he and me both do is to check in with our partner during social situations to ask if I am behaving "properly" and to gauge the "mood" !<
I didn't think I would identify so much of my own neurodivergens in this bully. But he's so unlike the typical autistic character trope of being intelligent or analytical or emotionless. He feels strongly! Just doesn't really show it, nor understand exactly what at most times.. BUT STRONGLY!
Hey guys. So I've just binged Sex Education in the past two days and loved it. It's not the usual thing I'm into so I'm not sure what else I can look for that will interest me. The closest thing I've seen before is Master of None.
I basically want a show with good relatable characters who I actually care about, and I want to root for people to do well and get the relationships they want. I've seen shows like Derry Girls and I'm looking for something a bit less 'sitcom' than that, but conversely I want something relatively light and not too intense (I do want to watch Euphoria but I feel that may be closer to the latter)
Any recommendations will be appreciated. Thanks!
Hey I was gonna do a YouTube video of what subjects each of the characters would take. I swear while watching the show they said what year group they were in but I can't remember the clip. If anyone also remembers where PLEASE RESPOND with proof please. Thank you
While none of us may write for, or formally work on, the show, I was curious what storylines/topics those of us fans in this community would love to see covered on Sex Education in the future (and with which characters)?
I'm wondering if anyone recognizes the characters from 4:56 ("the underdeveloped gay best friend") and 5:06 ("the jock bully type dude") of "Sex Education: Outsmarting Stereotypes" on YouTube
Hey, guys, I'm Fran (she/they), and I'm 18. Last year I discovered I'm asexual, and I want to come out to my parents.
I want to introduce the topic by showing them media with ace characters (since they don't know we exist), like Bojack Horseman (Todd) and Sex education (Florence). But I don't think they want to watch a kid giving sex ed to his friends and a horse with depression (sorry, that's all I know about the shows 😔).
So how can I convince my parents to watch BHM and SE? Is it necessary to tell them I want them to watch it only because of 1 specific character?
