    Default I'm Going Through Changes...(Netflix's Big Mouth)

    I can't believe there's not already a thread for this one. The third season just came out and I devoured it the same day it was released. Very rarely can a show remain so consistently funny and high-quality for three or more seasons and Big Mouth is delightfully one of them. It's hard to go 30 seconds without laughing, it's so well-written and has great timing with its jokes and humor. It's like if South Park didn't have any restraint when it came to what was going on with the kids' bodies, so the perspective they are able to tell these stories from is pretty unique.

    Anyone else enjoy this raunchy pseudo-child-porn animated gem?

    I'm a big fan. It definitely has a lot in communication j with South Park but often seems interested in offering a more sympathetic or nuanced take on issues. I love and hate all the characters (except for Missy, who I only love).

    I love this show but this was the weakest season imo. I laughed the least in this one and the story was less interesting and all over the place. episodes 1 8 9 and 10 (not to be confused with netflix numbering) were great, but the rest of the season felt like unfocused random filler. I wanted to see more of the metaphorical characters. Connie was underutilised and where the hell was shame wizard? He's a great character and there were plenty of shameful moments to use him. The metaphorical stuff is what makes this show so great. They have all these great characters but they underutilse them to tell boring stories about mobile phones etc. There was no real arc either hence it feeling like random unfocused filler.
    Thankfully depression kitty and missy's monster show up in the later episodes.
    Holy hell though, episode 10 was absolutely hilarious. It's the best episode of the show I'd say. Also Jay was mvp this season and missy's always great.

    They probably held off on the Metaphorical characters being so active this season since they're gonna have an Office style spinoff.

    Missy really is the best. Her low points are never really as bad as a lot of the other kids. Andrew probably creating the biggest errors in judgement. Nick in second place. Jay is in another league and doesn't seem to really feel shame so he doesn't count lol.

    The writing is definitely better than I expected, as Jabberwok pointed out it has more nuance and empathy than first glance but good lord is the design just so relentlessly ugly that I haven't really been motivated to check out beyond a couple of first episodes.

    Tuca & Bertie's cancellation (D:<) and that infamous bi/pan clip that produced a thousand hot takes probably aren't helping its reputation either.

    Personally I wonder if making the character designs so wonky was on purpose to deter pedos. Making everyone weirdo muppet mutants just makes everything so absurd.

    Well Maury has already remarked that they're lucky it's animated or it would get flagged as child porn (and even then, he questioned whether that was the case or not) so who knows whether the animation that makes everyone's heads the same mass as the rest of their entire bodies is to produce an uncanny valley effect or just to look funny (Nick's face on its own is just hilarious with that jaw and those teeth always sticking out).

    Jay is the undisputed champion of the show for me, and now is the Cum Bender, LOL. I really want to know what happens to him when he goes into those 'lost time' moments where he's crawling on the ceiling and has glowing red eyes. Maybe he's possessed by another ghost like Duke Ellington, only they're evil. That could make for a fun episode.

    Now that Missy has her own hormone monstress, I hope the other kids start getting their own ones too. Matthew certainly deserves a better, more fitting one than Maury. And Jay, being in a league of his own, definitely needs a more appropriate hormone monster for himself.

    And I just read that they've renewed the show for THREE more seasons! I'm so glad, since a lot of the other stuff they put out that I enjoy has been cancelled. I'm really relieved that this one is doing so well that it's got that kind of staying power (ha ha) behind it.
