She added later that “Aimee walked 2 hours to her boyfriend’s house !! where does Steve live?” She went to Ask if “does everyone live on the outskirts?”

“I think Eric lives in a communal city which will be in / near the center of town, otis lives on the outskirts in the same way as Aimee (maybe the same road / area) the trailer park in maeve is probably just outside of town but on the opposite side, “a person suggested. Schauer was not convinced, however, to respond, “Okay sure, but why would Eric be riding his bike to Otis then?”
also why can maeve just cross a mountain and be basically in town but otis has to go through a whole forest of ass on a bike

“Who knows what’s going on with the layout of this city like ,,, where are the office buildings? Why are there so many fields? demand someone else.
“Absolutely no sense”
It might help, this is where the school they filmed is in Wales, even the town itself branches out in so many directions with forests and fields between them, a few bigger houses at the foot Hills 🙂 pic.twitter.com/ZC4zynmSAa

“It makes absolutely no sense” added a fan. “Also, there is a bus that goes by there ??? What ??? I feel like they cycle / walk 10 miles all the time.”
“Where is the real city?” “
The whole town is a Mobius gang, and the school is glued to a popsicle stick hanging from a string hanging in the center. Hope this helps you

“And like, where Eric lives seems to be sort of in a development (so maybe more towards downtown ???) except like WHERE IS THE ACTUAL CITY?” demand another. “There’s the pharmacy where ola worked and it’s like the only place they go.”

When Schauer followed up his comment with a tweet noting that “if the creators of Sex education posted a Game Of Thrones type of town planning I think that would answer half of my questions about the show “, several Sex education fans responded with self-created Moordale cards.

“Okay, but every morning Eric goes to Otis on his bike”, Schauer wrote in response to the map above. “If that was the pattern, Otis would have to cycle to Eric’s house and then they would go to school.”
As a Brit none of these things are the reason tuning doesn’t make sense. If you’re an American, you watch the show through an American lens, so a lot of things make sense to you which here isn’t. The city ain’t meant to exist in a sane way, ain’t no place like it

“The show is intentionally impossible to place in England or America, city or country, contemporary or nostalgic”, responded someone else. “It’s a stylistic choice to make it a little ~ off ~ and a universe in itself.”
