Big Mouth is a hilarious animated series about a group of children at a very delicate time in life—puberty. The show, starring Nick Kroll, will make you laugh until your sides hurt, but it can be inappropriate for young children. It is also only for people who can handle crude humor. Despite the sometimes controversial content and humor, the story is told with sensitivity and may even teach a lesson or two.
Go back in time with one of the best TV shows on Netflix. The Crown tells the story of the British monarchy in the 20th century.
