Big Mouth is back, and it is just as controversial in its jokes as it was in the first season.

Big Mouth is a cartoon that depicts the life of four teenagers going through puberty and is a great cartoon to watch if you are into crude humor.

If you are wondering if it is worth dedicating the ten hours to watch this new season, the short answer is yes. I instantly became addicted to the show, as I did in season one, and binge watched the whole thing.

You would have to watch the first season in order to fully appreciate and understand season two, since it picks up right where season one leaves off.

For your enjoyment purposes, I will avoid plot spoilers within this review, but we generally start the show off after two of the main characters run away and finally get to see what happens to them.

The show, like fine wine, only gets better with time. I liked season two more than the first season for several reasons, the biggest being that it explains more. At the end of season one, we are left on a cliff hanger between two of the characters and don’t fully find out what happens until season two hits. This was a useful strategy since it made me excited for the show to start back up.

I also appreciated how season two addressed issues other than just puberty, in funny yet serious ways. For example, one of the main characters, named Jesse, has an issue with her parents getting a divorce and we see the behavior and problems it causes, which ultimately lead the character to develop depression. The way Big Mouth depicts her depression is with a “Depression Cat” who influences her to do the things that most people normally do when going through depression, such as avoiding contact with other people, sleeping in the middle of the day, eating a lot of food, along with other symptoms.

Season two also brings more drama than season one. We see more people dating and hooking up as a result of puberty.

I find that season two also has more people I can relate to. Since puberty is something every person goes through, you watch all the situations that the characters go through and can usually relate to them in some way, even if your experience was not as extreme as situations on the show. For example, we see one of the characters think she will hate her mom forever because of an incident only to later on figure out how important her mom and family really are. I can relate to this personally, like I imagine many others can.

Overall Big Mouth season two is an amazing, hilarious Netflix original to watch that is just as good if not better than season one. I highly recommend that if you are into crude humor, you watch this shoe.
