Where has this show BEEN? No, really, Netflix has been around for years, why are they just now getting around to this series of delightful 20 minute episodes, each devoted to a curse word.
I have seen almost all of them.
Episode 1: FUCK - here we are presented with the show’s premise: we follow a curse word through history, from when it is coined to modern day, noting when the meanings change. Professors and bookish types say FUCK very seriously and shamelessly.
Episode 2: SHIT - at this point the novelty and humor of bookish types saying SHIT wears off and is surpassed by the humor of how the show just goes there, “there” being over the top. An embarrassment of cursing.
Episode 3: BITCH - I was waiting for this one, because first it was a bad word, then we took it back, then some women said we don’t want it, thank you, get that word away from me. It was more philosophical than the previous ones, but it does have the best delivery of any joke of the entire series.
Episode 4: DICK - In case you didn’t know, men love their DICKs, and it shows. They love them, and they love the word. Evidently men and their dicks have little conversations on the regular, did you know? Also, there’s a nice bit with resentful narrator Nic Cage.
I have not seen the last two episodes, PUSSY and DAMN, and I really don’t know why they sign off with those two, unless they are going from least acceptable to most (even though I think they posited that SHIT was more shocking than FUCK, my stars no. Not here in Missouri. FUCK Trumps SHIT any day.)
And where, you say, are the two C words? Whither CUNT and COCKSUCKER? The big guns? I can only guess there will be a season two.
