With the sixth and final season of The Crown currently airing (in two parts) on Netflix, it’s as good a time as any to watch the whole thing, if you haven’t already. Season 1 begins in the 1940s, with Princess Elizabeth and Prince Philip’s wedding, before going on to capture her ascension to the thrown and the greater Windsor clan’s dance with history and power over the course of the 20th (and early 21st) century. The series does an excellent job of reconciling world events with the personal goings-on of Britain’s royal family, concluding with the death of Prince Diana and the courtship of Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Sex Education (2019-2023)
Otis’s hobbies involve bike-riding; hanging with his best friend, Eric; crushing on Maeve; and operating a secret sex therapy clinic at his school. Sex can be confusing—especially when you’re in high school—and Otis looks to channel what he’s learned from his sex therapist mom, Jean, to help his classmates navigate it. The series is both deeply funny and incredibly heartfelt, touching on issues like assault, trauma, and grief.
