Big Mouth Review: Daring To Go Where Only Netflix Will Allow
“Big Mouth’s simplistic animation and scatalogical humor belie its finely sketched characters and smart, empathetic approach to the messiness of adolescence.”
Daring to go where only Netflix will allow them. Nick Kroll’s Big Mouth is killing it and causing controversy in the best kind of way.
If you are easily upset, offended or simply have no sense of humor – this show isn’t for you. However, if you like to dabble past the vanilla-ness of casual TV and like to dive into something far more rich in flavor and debauchery… You should stop what you are doing and check out Big Mouth right now!
Big Mouth is an American adult animated sitcom created by Nick Kroll, Andrew Goldberg, Mark Levin, and Jennifer Flackett based on Kroll and Goldberg’s teenage and tweenage years growing up in the suburbs of New York City, with Kroll voicing his fictional self.
Consisting of just 10 episodes, the show will have you in fits of laughter and wanting more. It’s very rare for a show to touch on such a ‘taboo’ topic in the eye of many sheltered individuals. Yet, the show does it in such a way that you almost agree with everything going on. It happens to all of us, and for many, maybe some ‘pillow time’ may hit too close to home.
What makes Big Mouth more than the sum of its many dick jokes is the fact that beneath its raging hormones and truly gross humor lies an enormously sympathetic heart. The show itself achieves a new, deeper level of comedy by remaining hyper-aware of the fact that puberty isn’t just about bodies changing, but about what it means to grow up at all.
So throw on your PJ’s, grab the snacks and start binging. All 10 Episodes can be found on Netflix now!
