There are many reasons to Sex Education was suddenly turned away by the audience in this final season. The new 8-episode season received negative reviews from viewers, including many details that caused heavy disappointment. Screen Rant page has selected the 5 worst details of Sex Education season 4, are elements that, if removed, would make the film much better.
The teenage characters are… too old
The Screen Rant website commented that this problem is “spreading like an epidemic” in Hollywood, when actors playing teenage characters mature too quickly. This “syndrome” is now clearly seen in Sex Education season 4, when most of the stars playing students are in their 30s. Especially with the male lead Otis, the beauty of actor Asa Butterfield changed significantly from season 1 to season 4, no longer the 17 or 18 year old young man he once was.
Jackson lacks an emotional connection
Sex Education Season 4 has too many story lines to deal with, leading to some being lighter than others. Among them, Jackson’s story is considered the least attractive. Jackson spends the whole movie looking for his true love, but in the end he receives a shocking secret about his family. He is actually the “illegitimate son” of Roz’s mother and an unnamed man (who he previously thought had donated his mother’s sperm). On the other hand, Jackson and Cal’s story is also left open even though the two have interesting “chemistry”. Sex Education season 3.
Many “strong” characters are ignored
Too many story lines and characters in Sex Education The final season caused many characters to lose their acting ground. Many fan-favorite names have disappeared, such as Ola or Lily. Even the reason why these two characters are absent was not mentioned in season 4 this time, leaving many viewers disappointed.
Jean & Jakob are not back together
At the end of Sex Education Season 4, almost no fan-favorite couples got together. Even the “senior” couple Jean and Jakob were disappointed because they didn’t have a chance to be together. Jakob didn’t even appear in season 4, leaving Jean to take on the miserable responsibility of taking care of baby Joy alone. Many viewers agree that Jean and Jakob deserve a beautiful ending after a long and difficult time.
Otis is portrayed as a villain
This is the worst thing about such a great series Sex Education could do, and did. The final season portrays male lead Otis as a hateful villain, with many frustrating moments. Otis is no longer as considerate, interesting and kind as before, on the contrary, he has become a man with many wrong “moves”. He did not support Maeve going to America to study, tormenting her with thoughtless actions (like sleeping in the same bed with Ruby). At the new school, Otis even fights with another “psychophysiological consultant” to assert that he is unique and unique. Although Otis later calmed down, the image of the male lead was so strange that the audience was extremely disappointed.
