Sex Education season 3 is now on Netflix and our TV pick of the week – Picture: Netflix

This week marks the return of Sex Education, one of Netflix’s raunchiest and funniest Originals to date. We suspect Lucifer’s crown as the reigning top TV show on Netflix will be usurped this weekend. Aside from Sex Education, there’s still lots to enjoy with an exciting new K-Drama, a classic 90s sitcom, and a reimagining of a beloved 80s cartoon.
