As long as we recognize Lucas is washed up and most TV sucks, we'll all get along fine.

Yay! Netflix.

A raunchy animated comedy about a group of school friends as they literally begin puberty, and the real problems and changes it brings.

It is obscene... but it feels strangely accurate. One kid can't stop jerking off. One girl gets her first period while on a field trip, while wearing white shorts. I'm actually contemplating letting my kid watch it, since he's hitting that age.

I dunno. Just a strange, original show.
Fuuuuuuck YOU.

I am really enjoying this show.

Lots of voices you'll recognize, but Nick Kroll does a lot of them as well. I honestly thought the Hormone Monster was Will Arnett and was shocked to learn it was Kroll. I love that Jason Mantzoukas (Rafi from The League) is in this and his character is like a Rafi in training. John Mulaney's voice works perfectly in this project. He actually sounds like a kid going through puberty. Seriously, check out the IMDB page and you'll see a fuckton of people you know.

This isn't a "laugh out loud" show, so much as it's entertaining and, as Gordon says, accurate. Yes, you'll laugh and it is outrageous at moments, but it also really hits the nail on the head in how we think at that age.

Maybe a little too adult for your kid Gordo. Even if it's not, I mean, you don't want to start going through a lot of soup do you?

Haven't heard if this was renewed, but Nick Kroll posted a picture from table reads today, which wouldn't be happening if it wasn't.

So yay!

Finally got around to watching the last episode of season 2 tonight. The fact that it took me over a month should indicate how I felt about this season. Nowhere near as good as the first season. They introduce a new hormone monster that is simply the worst character on the show, and ruins every scene he's in.

I will say that the final episode was decent, and made some changes to the status quo, so maybe season 3 will be better.

Maybe I'll stop after Season 1.
