The shame wizard has an autographed picture of Septa Unella (Game of Thrones) on the wall of his office. Septa Unella is the famous character walking behind Cersei Lannister, ringing a bell and constantly chanting the word shame while Cersei walks naked through the city. See more »
Hot on the heels of the first season of the Netflix animated series comes another hilarious run.
Plot and content wise, it's very much more of the same. There are some moments of extremely cringey gross out humour, mixed with pathos and wit and fourth wall breaking. However, elevating the series (and earning the extra star boost from 8 to 9) the peerless David Thewlis, added to the cast as "The Shame Wizard". His unique voice (and singing voice no less) elevate what should be a very obvious character to the star of the season. With Jordan Peele presumably too busy to provide as much "Ghost of Duke Ellington" for this second season, a very game Nathan Fillion continues his quest to be in every Netflix show and steps up as a recurring fantasy figure in Missy's life.
With a depth and honest about puberty that only works with by the exaggerating nature of anthropomorphising aspects of the adolescent experience it's a marvel that "Big Mouth" manages to do that a but so funny - but it does, and long may it continue.
