Big Mouth (Season 1) (2017)

Truly a unique animated show, Netflix’s “Big Mouth” tackles the ravages, confusion and embarrassment of puberty with the sharp incisiveness of “Bojack Horseman.” With first-rate voice work by a talented all-star cast, each episode addresses different aspects of puberty that can make the experience truly difficult, from unexpected stimulation to acne outbreaks, with the sort of subversive humor that manages somehow to upend the conventions of health videos while remaining surprisingly accurate and cathartic. This is really something special and will likely be a cult classic for years to come, as it’s relatable for just about everybody and may even be instructional for maturing audiences.
