Recap

Soft Daddy & The Mobile Phone: Elliot, Diane, Andrew, Cellsea, Nick, Judd, Cellsea, Maury

Nick’s obsession with his phone has reached the point of trying to appease her by making a viral moment. The problem is, Nick doesn’t really have those in his life until he discovers Soft Daddy, aka Elliot’s, skincare routine. Leading to him not having a viral moment but one which does spread amongst the school, and gets back to Diane who decides to take Nick’s phone – causing him to have a meltdown.

Luckily, between “Find My Phone” and Judd, Nick reunited with his phone. But, unfortunately, Cellsea remains a bad influence, and when combined with Maury, both are able to convince Andrew to help Nick steal his mom’s car. However, with them in middle school, neither have taken any sort of driving class so Andrew crashes into the garage door, and this leads Diane to murder Cellsea.

Question(s) Left Unanswered
  1. What are the personalities of everyone else’s phone like?
  2. How did Andrew’s hair grow back so quickly?

Are We Like, Friends?: Missy, Jay

In Jay’s usual desperation for attention, he comes across Missy and rips a page out of her fantasy book. To much surprise, he reads what is in there and likes it – though he has some feedback. The kind which is all erotic and despite how sexual the content, Missy agrees with his takes, and they decide to write together. Thus begins a beautiful friendship.

Question(s) Left Unanswered
  1. Could Jay and Missy become more than friends?

Homoerectus: Aiden, Jessi, Matthew, Maury, Edward, Kimberly

It isn’t clear who Aiden’s hormone monster is, but they are pushing him to make a move on Matthew. The problem is, however, Matthew wants to but isn’t ready – mostly due to Maury hyping things up. At least not on Aiden’s terms. So, Jessi, with the good ideas, says they should make things more casual, have it at Matthew’s, and she’ll come over, for a small bit, so that Edward and Kimberly don’t raise an eyebrow. A brilliant plan that works since Matthew and Aiden not only get to hold hands but makeout.

Question(s) Left Unanswered
  1. So Matthew’s parents, and his million and one siblings, didn’t see that kiss at the end? Are you telling me none of them are nosy?
  2. Despite how inappropriate Maury is, anyone else get the vibe he is one of the few positive, older male, figures in Matthew’s life?

Review

Highlights

Making Up For Lost Time

The amount of time and dedication being given to Missy, Matthew, and Jay this episode felt like it was making up for lost time. Matthew has had his first kiss, maybe has a boyfriend, we’ve learned about his family dynamics, and developed his relationship with Jessi. Someone who shows herself capable of being a friend to someone way better than she ever was to Missy.

Jay questioning his sexuality for being friends with a girl.

Jay: I’m friends with a girl? Wait a minute. Does that make me gay?

Who, by the way, seems to have found a kindred spirit in Jay. A boy who has been longing to find someone as weird as him, that doesn’t make him feel the need to backtrack after he gives a statement. Though the interesting thing here will be, not just Jay exploring and understanding his sexuality, but also having a friend that’s a girl. Since, while Jessi and Nick are friends, they don’t hang out and chat much. More so, they are like cordial exes. So Jay’s sexual and friendship exploration might be one of the best storylines this season.

On The Fence

This Cellsea Storyline

As compared to this Cellsea storyline, which hopefully is dead. Not that I don’t get the humor and need to address phone addiction, but this has been one of the weaker topics that Big Mouth has chosen to explore. Making Cellsea’s violent death a blessing.

Big Mouth: Season 2 – Recap/ Review

Big Mouth season 2 tackles shame, Planned Parenthood, female pleasure, and so much more. All the while seeming like it is more so edutainment than just raunchy good fun.

Season 2/ Episode 10 "The Department of Puberty"

From seeing the world where the Hormone Monsters and Shame Wizard comes from, to meeting Nick’s new hormone monster, the finale packs a punch.

Season 2/ Episode 9 “Smooch or Share”

As many characters face the truth, accept it as well, it loosens the power the monsters and wizard has over them. Perhaps making things worse.

Season 2/ Episode 8 “Dark Side of the Boob”

The Shame Wizard goes into overtime and it seems Connie, Tyler, and Maury aren’t willing or able to do a thing about it.

Season 2/ Episode 7 “Guy Town”

Matthew finally gets recognized for more than his sass and with as Nick finally gets a new hormone monster!

Season 2/ Episode 6 “Drug Buddies”

Jessie gets Nick high, Lila and Andrew become a thing and the Shame Wizard finally gets what he wanted.

Season 2/ Episode 5 “The Planned Parenthood Show”

It’s a sex ed episode, which features all the things Planned Parenthood does — beyond abortions. A fraction of the services they provide.

Season 2/ Episode 4 “Steve The Virgin”

Steve has the opportunity to have sex, with someone who isn’t a sex worker, and the Shame Wizard tries to claim another child.

Season 1/ Episode 1 “Ejaculation”

Big Mouth seems like it will be the few Netflix series, this year, to deserve a long lifespan on the network.

Season 1/ Episode 2 “Everybody Bleeds”

It’s a big day for Jessi. Nick has seemingly evolved into her boyfriend and then she meets the Hormone Monstress.

Season 1/ Episode 3 “Am I Gay?”

In this episode of "Big Mouth," Andrew questions his sexuality as Jessi and Nick devolve their relationship back to a friendship.

Season 1/ Episode 4 “Sleepover: A Harrowing Ordeal of Emotional Brutality”

The boys and girls go to their respective sleepovers and while the boys avoid jizz, Jessi is just trying to avoid hurting people’s feelings.

Season 1/ Episode 5 “Girls Are Horny Too”

After so much time on Big Mouth spent on hearing the boys talk about porn and masturbation, it’s ladies night.

Season 1/ Episode 6 “Pillow Talk”

Two kids from Westchester head to the big city and learn what secrets are hidden within it. Meanwhile, Jay gets his pillow pregnant.

Season 1/ Episode 7 “Requiem for a Wet Dream”

As Jay continues to be abused, Coach Steve makes a friend. Also, Andrew and Missy confess their feelings for one another.

Season 1/ Episode 8 “The Head Push”

Consent is a big focus on this episode of Big Mouth as we learn about someone commonly known as “The Head Pusher.”

Season 1/ Episode 9 “I Survived Jessi’s Bat Mitzvah”

Between kids and parents or lovers, there aren't many happy relationships. But, there's always ghosts, friends & your friend’s mom.

Season 1/ Episode 10 “The Pornscape”

Hasn’t it all led to this? A masturbation addiction and a bunch of emotional boys doing foolish things to deal with their hormones?

Season 1 – Recap/ Review

Big Mouth presents the vulgarity of South Park, alongside having the type of heart that the Disney Channel has recently afforded its shows.

Season 2/ Episode 1 “Am I Normal?”

We pick up where we left off and Nick is starting to wonder if puberty may ever start to kick in.

Season 2/ Episode 2 “What Is It about Boobs?”

Big Mouth continues to make sure the girls of the show aren’t forgotten as it dives into body image issues and learning to love yourself.

Season 2/ Episode 3 “The Shame Wizard”

It seems the being that haunted Missy finds its way to Andrew. As that happens, Jessie becomes more rebellious and Nick tries to woo Gina.
