A sexually repressed teenage son of a sex therapist decides to start giving out some counseling of his own to his fellow high-schoolers?
Here is a Netflix series that is getting better as the episode goes along. Otis Millburn (Asa Butterfield) our hero here is a sexually repressed teenager who’s mom is a sex therapist that is also sleeping with her patients and whom ever she wants. But the thing is that Otis here is afraid of sexually intimacy and has wet dreams. As the episodes goes along you are going to know why. It started when a compadre who has a problem with his Penis, Otis will talk him down and make him understand what he is suppose to do. Of course put a gay man who is being bullied and his father can’t believe that his son is gay, a teenager girl who Otis likes and wants her to be his girlfriend but she is interested in someone else and a bunch of other dysfunctional teenagers and you will have a series that is funny as hell. The high school students here are facing different problems the typical problem that a teenager is facing sex, contraception , pregnancy, masturbation, as well as psychological problem of being bullied because someone is gay, well you get the point. You will never get bored with this one. I can’t wait until next season.

Here is a British series for you. I took a look and said to myself here it is this is the one.The Fall establishes a frightening, grimy and compellingly realistic scenario right from the beginning; after 2 women was found raped and murdered in their apartment,their bodies left in posed tableaux, the Belfast police department reaches out to the London-based Detective Superintendent Stella Gibson (Anderson) to help them out, to see of the murders are connected. Her supervisor on the cases, police captain Jim Burns (John Lynch), thinks that the most recent killing is possible that is related to the ex-fiancée. Gibson concludes that both murders were by the hands of the same person , and that the entire department needs to act quickly to prevent another tragedy from occurring.
What I like about this you see the murderer doing his thing and his everyday life. Than you see the detective at work and doing their thing. It is more realistic this way instead of closing the case in an hour show. You actually see how they investigate and the clues that lead to the killer. it is the cat and mouse game. The writer has done a nice job here. It has some unexpected turns here and there. Stella is a tough emotionless detective and has to deal with the rough tough detectives and personnel she is assigned too. There is a sensuous and cold side of Stella as you see in the second episode where she hooked up with one of the detective. Then there is Danielle Ferrington (played by Niamh McGrady), a tough officer who reveals that she’s gay. It is a fresh seres not like the American series as I called them the hollywood machine that are a bit unrealistic and solve the murder in an hour. Thank god for a refreshing look at it. It is as suspenseful as it should be but i might want to say that the cinematography is grippy but beautifully well film as well.

Two FBI agents, Fox Mulder the believer and Dana Scully the skeptic, Investigates paranormal cases that sometimes takes then into a government conspiracy Finding about aliens and such. They put their careers and their lives at risk . They solve by any means necessary. Terrific series from fox. It survived location and cast changes. They were tension between Scally (Gillian Anderson) and Mulder (David Duchovny) a little bit of sexual tension as the shows went on. It is my favorite shows of all time a great rides for 9 years. I love the cigarette smoking man (William B. Davis) always a step ahead of Scally and Mulder I loved that character He was also known as the cancer man .He also had multiple aliases, he was the antagonist. he is a key member in a government conspiracy only known as the Syndicate . Also Mulder believes that his sister has been taken by aliens. as the seasons went on Scally little by little became a believer and was more open to ideas of paranormal. Over all a great series.
