Okay, so you guys might remember me posting a few clips of a new cartoon called, "Big Mouth", that was released on Netflix less than a week ago. And it looked like it was going to be pretty risky as far as cartoons go! But...ummm...LOL! So I watched the first four episodes over the past few days, and WOW!
Ok, if you have any desire to watch this series at all (It's actually REALLY funny!!!)...I suggest that you stop reading this and go watch it NOW! Because this show will NOT last! I can almost guarantee you that it'll soon be censored and will probably vanish into some unknown void, never to be seen again! Hehehe! Seriously...its a great show, but I don't think the world is ready for that kind of, ummm....'honesty' yet!
The show is about a small group of friends who are in the 8th grade, and experiencing puberty for the first time. Now, everybody here has either experienced this before, or is going through it right now, and let me say that this show pulls NO punches! Not with the language, or the sex, or the nudity, or anything else! :O This isn't 'Family Guy'! This isn't even 'South Park'! Dude...I've never had a cartoon make me BLUSH before! Like, "OMG, I can't believe they just did that!!!" There were more than a few times when I was actually thinking that they might have gone a little bit too far. *ME*!!! Comicality! Hahaha! So yeah...it's been out for almost a week. By 'Church Time' on Sunday, I'm sure people will be outraged and fighting to have the show pulled.
But, all in all, I am loving this show! I always said that the best stories are the ones that give you a jolt and shake you out of your comfort zone. And my comfort zone is pretty damn wide! But this cartoon shocked me. IN a good way. And it's great for deep, genuine, belly laughs too! At its heart, though, it is a brutally honest look at puberty and what it's like to go through that time in your life. In 4 episodes, it's covered masturbation, unwanted ejaculation, late bloomers, menstruation, pornography, mood swings, first dates, first kisses, random erections, wet dreams, (homo)sexual confusion...I mean, it really is genius. It is definitely not targeted towards kids, but I almost wish they could see it. If for no other reason than to have them get a few laughs and learn a few things during a time when everything is weird and gross and embarrassing.
So grab it while you can! I'm sure this is going to be a VERY limited run. Some folks are already saying that Netflix is using the show to promote pedophilia. Sighhhh...whatever.
That reminds me, get your Netflix cue ready for "Stranger Things 2" in a few weeks! >:P
A scene where one of the main characters is worried about the size of his penis when compared to his friend's. Hehehe, yeah...this is just a small taste of what you'll be getting!
(Wait, did I just say, 'A small taste of what you'll be getting'? Omigod! This show DOES promote pedophilia! Dangit!)
