A Bright Future Ahead
In a show, all about teenagers going through puberty in a comedic fashion the idea for a Valentine’s Day special is genius. If this is a good representation of the following season I am incredibly anxious to see the continuation of this series. The controversial comedy this series is known for has not lost its knack to leave you speechless. So much so that you’ll have to ask yourself if you really should be laughing at times.
Chemistry is at an all-time high
The relationship between Andrew (John Mulaney) and Maurice (Maya Rudolph) has easily been one of the best parts of the show since it’s inception. Andrew’s weird sexual obsession with almost anything as well as being convinced to do things he wouldn’t normally by Maurice never gets old. Maurice himself is unpredictable nothing is off the table and that reminds me of the early seasons of Family Guy. The creators of Big Mouth aren’t afraid to be bombarded by today’s sensitive people all over the internet and that’s the only way to make a show of this nature.
While Andrew and Maurice are a great pair this special brings us another interesting relationship being Nick (Nick Kroll) and Connie (Maya Rudolph). Both of these characters have been on the show for quite a while, but with Connie being Nick’s new hormone monstress plenty of new problems arise.
Valentine’s Day is the Worst
This particular holiday is generally disliked by many people and it’s not hard to know why. For people not in relationships, a day that focuses on the love in the air can be frustrating. There are people that to step outside of their comfort zone and finally ask that person out that they’ve always wanted only to get rejected. This day isn’t just hard for people who aren’t in relationships it’s hard for people with partners as well because they are expected to be as romantic as possible. Seeing these ideas explored during this episode is not only relatable but entertaining to see play out.
The no holds barred comedy is back and is the best it has ever been. New relationships have been forged and have only changed the show for the better. The odd musical numbers and taboo topics make their return as well. Fans of Big Mouth will be pleased with this double episode and if the following season can keep to the standard of this special we are in for the best episodes of this show yet.
