We've all shuffled, again and again, through the algorithm of shows Netflix thinks you might want to watch next. But with an overwhelming selection, it's hard to commit. This week's picks are all series with slightly longer episodes, but with varying levels of attention required from you.
Sex Education is a British comedy-drama web television series, created by Laurie Nunn, that premiered on 11 Januaryon Netflix. In Februaryit was announced that the series had been renewed for a second season. Socially awkward teenager Otis Milburn is ambivalent about sex, despite his mother being a sex therapist who is frank about all aspects of sexuality.
I received no less than half a dozen emails about the web series Insomnia before deciding, on a lark, to attend a press screening in May. I jogged there from a dance class, hiding under scaffolding to avoid rain, and paused at one crosswalk to wonder why on Earth I was putting myself through this. But I had a gut feeling.
There are so many good episodes of Masters of Sexbut which ones really stand out? To determine once and for all what the best episodes of Masters of Sex are, let's rank every Masters of Sex episode from best to worst. Louis, Missouri.
A kooky and surprisingly emotional show about an unlikely friendship between two septuagenarian women whose husbands leave them for each other. A quirky comedy about a woman moving to New York after being rescued from a doomsday cult. Ellie Kemper brings just the right level of naivety to the role of Kimmy, her child-like wonder giving the small fish big pond narrative an unfamiliar tilt.
Read at your own risk! I only need to tell you one thing about Sex Education to put it at the top of your binge queue this weekend: Gillian Anderson plays a sexually liberated relationship therapist with a house full of phallic statues. Even though every part of that statement is accurate, leaving it at that wouldn't be giving this delightfully awkward, beautiful show a just review.
For most people, being a teenager is awkward, weird, random, and confusing. The show stars Asa Butterfield as Otis, a sixth former high schooler, for Americans — the series is set in the UK who starts an underground therapy clinic for his peers. The clinic idea comes from a smart, smokey-eyed schoolmate, Maeve Emma Mackeya Margot Robbie cloneafter witnessing Otis using his skills to counsel a school bully about why he has trouble ejaculating.

Want to watch something seductive that stays spicy over plus hours of streaming? We're not simply talking nuditylike on Game of Thronesor sleazier series like Californication and Entourage ; nor shows about people who pay for it, like Hung or The Girlfriend Experience ; and definitely not anything under the "HBO After Dark" banner. No, sexy is a little bit different. Since explicit shows like Orange Is the New Black and How to Get Away With Murder are probably old reliables for you by now, we know there's nothing sexier than shaking up your streaming diet every so often.
