Big Mouth.

With all due respect to Andrew (John Mulaney), Nick (Nick Kroll), and Jessi (Jessi Klein) the Hormone Monsters are the main characters of “Big Mouth.” Think about it: This is their story. The new Netflix comedy explores how Maurice (Kroll) and Connie (Maya Rudolph) manipulate the minds and torture the bodies of pubescent junior high children. It’s a horror show — a funny horror show, but a horror show nonetheless — and they’re the big scary monsters freaking everybody out. Sure, they’re figments of Andrew and Jessi’s imaginations, but what’s a story of puberty without monstrous hormones?

Oh puberty, a time of nightmares, and they all come to life in the Netflix series Big Mouth. In a time when kids are hard pressed to obtain a good sex education, this might end up sex ed 101.

You can read all about it at IndieWire, but beware, spoilers all over the place, and NSFW stuff, too. The trailer is below the fold, because this probably qualifies as NSFW.

I can condense all the yootoob comments for you:

1: Disgusting! Child Porn!

2: Jewish conspiracy.

    Pointless advice to me, I don’t stream, and won’t be getting the discs or anything. Anyroad, I wouldn’t read too much into a joke; and the links I provided should have made it clear I did read all about the show.
