SEX ED­U­CA­TION Net­flix

PROB­A­BLY not one for the prud­ish, this sex­u­ally-charged sit­com fol­lows the woes of so­cially-awk­ward high school stu­dent Otis. But it’s worth a watch to see X Files star Gil­lian An­der­son play­ing sex ther­a­pist Jean, com­plete with plat­inum blonde hairdo and a se­ries of great out­fits.

Jean is Otis’s mother, which means the poor boy is sur­rounded by man­u­als, videos and te­diously open con­ver­sa­tions about sex. Otis (Asa But­ter­field) has be­come a reluc­tant ex­pert on the sub­ject, de­spite never hav­ing had sex.

When his home life is re­vealed at school – in all its em­bar­rass­ing glory, Otis re­alises he can use his spe­cial­ist knowl­edge to gain sta­tus. He teams up with bad girl Maeve (Emma Mackey) and to­gether they set up an un­der­ground sex ther­apy clinic to deal with fel­low stu­dents’ weird and won­der­ful prob­lems.

A gross yet charm­ing teen sex com­edy.

THE VIC­TO­RIAN HOUSE OF ARTS AND CRAFTS BBC2, 9pm

DAY One in the Vic­to­rian Arts and Crafts com­mune and the house­mates have to re-dec­o­rate the par­lour.

Yes, this is a bit like Big Brother meets Chang­ing Rooms, all whizzed back to the late 1800s.

Six crafters have moved in to an old house in the Welsh hills and must live to­gether for a month, while bring­ing the place back to life room by room.

Anita Rani, pot­ter Keith Brymer and crafts ex­pert and dealer Patch Rogers are on hand to guide us through the his­tory of Vic­to­rian arts and crafts.
