Better Than Big Mouth

I wasn't expecting much of this spin-off but in my opinion, it was even better than Big Mouth. In a relatable sense anyways. Both of these shows are obviously not for kids and there is absolutely no way I would allow any kid to watch either. Big Mouth is definitely relatable when adults or even older teenagers are looking back. But human resources I think is amazing for adults to watch. There are very few bits and pieces of humor that I don't really enjoy but, overall it's a fantastic show that covers a lot of very real life situations that adults experience, even in the monster world, which is interesting to me. One of the episodes honestly made me whole heartedly cry when it's theme was covering love, Grief, and dementia. I was utterly shocked when i found myself crying over a show that is so hilarious. And as a mom, I really appreciated that they covered post partum depression in a sense and the overwhelm that parents experience. I really would recommend this show to any adult who doesn't mind some pretty raunchy comedy but also would like to watch something that is relatable and covers more serious, complex issues. I am very excited for a new season. Even more so than Big Mouth. I don't think that this show would be too harmful for a 16 year old to watch and may even be helpful to help them prepare for the adult world, and help them understand adults better as a whole. The humor is definitely not appropriate for younger kids though unless they have a good healthy understanding of sex, love and complicated situations and understand how to navigate it all. But I feel like it would be helpful for younger kids to see the addiction monster situation 😅 at least some of it. This is 100% a show I would quickly put on pause or turn off around my 3 year old daughter or my 12 year old brother.
