Sex, Romance & Nudity
Lots of visual gags, like a character composed of penises, or Maury's pets, which are a gaggle of furry brown penises. Expect frequent references to sex, characters having sex, and discussions of sexuality and love.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Human Resources is an animated workplace comedy about the monsters from Big Mouth. This series focuses on the workplace lives of the Hormone Monsters, who help kids manage puberty, plus a new crew of creatures including Logic Rocks, Depression Kitties, and Lovebugs. Language includes "d--k," "bitch," "s--t," and frequent use of "f--k." Characters also frankly discuss penises, vaginas, butts, and various bodily experiences like birth and orgasms. Potty humor is frequent. Like its predecessor, this series is very edgy but also takes its content seriously, using comedy to address big issues that both teens and adults may be relieved to see on-screen (even if larger truths are sandwiched between snot rockets and farts).
Is It Any Good?
Once again, this show's creators don't hold back on raunch, but they're clearly committed to bringing frank (and wildly funny) discussions of sexuality to adults and teens. This commitment is the backbone of Human Resources, and addressing people's fears and insecurities through the use of "monsters" is a fun and successful framework that works as well here as it did in Big Mouth.
Human Resources' new characters are also a delight, including Randall Park as a Logic Monster who gently advises clients to not stand up the second a flight ends, and David Thewlis' bone-dry Shame Monster never fails to get a laugh. Yes, it's relentlessly filthy, but this show has heart (and all the other body parts, too).
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
