Best animated shows on Netflix: Big Mouth

Big Mouth is one of the longest-running adult animated sitcoms on Netflix right now and it just launched a successful spin-off series Human Resources. Both series just received renewals, bringing Big Mouth up to seven seasons and Human Resources to two.

Even though Big Mouth has a divisive premise as a show that deals with all the gross parts of puberty with a cast of many young pre-teens, it’s hilarious and takes an unflinching look at something universal.

I wish I had a show like Big Mouth growing up, although I realize the actual demographic is more geared toward adults, still, it would have been nice to have a show that actually gets into the weird parts of being human and sexuality without the Disney Channel gloss. Yes, Big Mouth can be really gross and ridiculous at times, and the jokes don’t always hit, but more often than not it’s hilarious and always entertaining.

The monsters are probably the best part and that’s why I think the spin-off series was such a fantastic idea, but more on Human Resources later. For now, I’m glad we have Big Mouth and as of now, we still have at least two more seasons on the way with possibly more to come after that.
