Nobody watching this? The new season is out. A little bit preachy but really quite good, as good as the previous seasons anyway.
My problem with her wasn't the character so much - it is believable enough that someone under massive pressure would lose all perspective like that. It happens. But....Great show, but this has been the worst season for me. It's still very good, but the head is just cartoonishly evil and it's distracting. It's like she's supposed to represent all of society's prejudices bundled up into this one figure for the students to rail against. They've made no attempt to give her any depth or redeeming qualities - or any subtlety whatsoever. I wish they'd tried a bit harder with her character. All the other characters have so much quality and are all charming in their own ways.
Yeah, that whole scene was way OTT. That and..My problem with her wasn't the character so much - it is believable enough that someone under massive pressure would lose all perspective like that. It happens. But....
The whole idea was that she is fighting to restore the school's reputation. Now, remember when the local paper put Lily's alien sex story on the fecking front page? Adn how that was seen another blow to the school's reputation? Here's the thing: the writers then asked me to believe that the public humiliation of three students somehow didn't become public knowledge. That scene was so fecked up - you tell me that none of these outspoken, bright teenagers would have got the word out? That none of the parents would have raised hell about that? Hard to believe, for me. Unless schooling in the UK is much rougher than I imagined.
Echo these sentiments - although I liked Isaac! The show did a lot of things right, and with real charm. I'll be eagerly awaiting a fourth season.I think the problem with the headteacher stems from the fact the writers have been too desperate to tick every possible diversity and prejudice box. It's all got a bit too much to contain and they rushed one character in to act as the antagonist to all of it.
Isaac is also a bit of a pointless character, but the main school kids and Gillian Anderson are brilliant.
I could see them following the characters into college or later life. Showing how sex education isn't only something for school kids etc.Season 4 is confirmed.
Hope it's the final one and they go out while the quality is still high. Have them finish 6th form and that be the end of it. Some of the actors might age out otherwise. Better to just wrap it up than stretch it out.
Maybe a spin-off if they want to continue telling similar stories.
They were actually a really cute couple and quite relatable in their dynamics, moreso than Otis and Maeve. Very unexpectedly, but that's what good writing and acting does.Feck Otis and Maeve. Team Ruby all the way.
