Lately, many of Netflix’s “originals” tend to have mixed reviews; and overall, can either be really good, or absolutely terrible. However, their show Big Mouth, proves the title “original” to be true, as it is not only a unique and original show, but is also a hilarious and tells a story we can all relate to.

Big Mouth is a show about a group of middle school students in New York City who are experiencing their life as teenagers for the first time. The show features the ins and outs of puberty, relationships in school, and the inner mind of a growing teen.

Although it seems as though this would be a good show for kids, it isn’t exactly child-friendly. Instead of being careful and respecting social taboos, Big Mouth tears down the walls, being brutally honest and graphic about every part of puberty.

Personally, I enjoy how the show pushes a very compelling story about what middle school life is truly like. I feel that having gone through many of the struggles I see the characters go through in the show, I am able to better connect with them and enjoy the experience even more for it. In addition, I find the graphic, bizzare, and absurd comedy and gags in the show hilarious. I appreciate the show’s ability to go the extra mile for every joke- even if it is deeply disturbing.

I would recommend this show to many of my friends. It may not be a very good show for children, but for people who will find it funny or have a strong mind to push through the graphic parts of this show, they should give it a try.
