Big Mouth – A Netflix Original Series – Season 2 Review

If you haven’t seen season one of Big Mouth on Netflix, no worries, this is a no spoiler zone.  Honestly, if you haven’t caught season one, you are missing out if you like crude, sexual humor in an animated series with hilarious voice actors.  With the voices of comedians and actors like Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Fred Armisen, Maya Rudolph, Jordan Peele and more, this season is filled talent and humor.

Season 2 picks up where season 1 left off, naturally, with what critics call “Poignantly repulsive, Big Mouth continues to confront the awkwardness of adolescence with foul-mouthed glee and an added layer of maturity.”  Big Mouth succeeds as a comedy by staying true to itself by mining generations’ worth of shame, guilt and dating disasters to deliver a hilarious portrayal of what it looks, feels and even smells like to be a teen transitioning into adulthood.  The highlight of all of the characters has to be the Hormone Monsters that are assigned to each kid to assist them in their self-exploration.  In season 2, the addition of the Shame Wizard, voiced by David Thewlis, adds a new layer of humiliation to each of the kids as they try to navigate what is normal versus what could be “wrong” even though it feels so right.

I highly recommend Big Mouth if you haven’t had a chance to check it out on Netflix.  This is a far superior animated series than Paradise PD.  Avoid that disaster of a show at all costs.
