The Biggest Releases

Big Mouth, Season 3
If you've never seen Big Mouth before, then you might be a little put off by all the puerile sex chatter and boner jokes that Nick Kroll's cartoon about middle schoolers going through ch-ch-ch-changes throws at you. But after a few minutes of desensitization, you'll find that underneath all the horniness is an observant, heartfelt portrayal of the nightmare of puberty. Once you discover that, the sophomoric humor flows and Big Mouth -- which earned an Emmy nomination for Best Animated Program this year -- suddenly becomes one of Netflix's better shows. This season, the bumps get bigger, the urges get lustier, and the emotions get swingier, and Coach Steve gets a new job as a mannequin and a visit from the Queer Eye folks, who will wish they never took on the task. It's one of the few shows that makes me ELL OH ELL.

Peaky Blinders, Season 5
Can't the old-timey British gangsters of Peaky Blinders have just one season where there's no trouble so they can focus on their employee health plans and 401Ks? I guess not. Season 5 sees Tommy Shelby up to his weird haircut in gangsters who want to take him out, plus he's getting a bunch of anonymous threats and dealing with suicidal thoughts. And on top of that, it's 1929 and the stock market crash is really eating into his profits. Anyway, you know the drill: Lots of people will die. (Trailer)

Everything Else

Raising Dion, Season 1

This show reminded me of Heroes, so take what you will from that. Shadowhunters' Alisha Wainwright plays a mom who already has a tough enough time raising her son Dion after her husband (Michael B. Jordan) mysteriously dies in a science experiment, but when Dion starts exhibiting special powers like telekinesis? Forget about it! That house will never not be messy if he's just going to float his toys around and watch them crash to the ground. This is a parent's worst nightmare. Give me a plain old kid, please. One thing to note: This show is as much about the mom as it is about the kid, which gives it a cool angle. But, uhhh, yeah, Heroes.

Rhythm + Flow, Season 1

"This ain't The Voice, motherf---er," Snoop Dogg says in the trailer of this hip-hop talent search that is very much like The Voice. Cardi B., T.I., and Chance the Rapper cross the country to look for the next 3rd Bass. What, they're still cool, right? There's a lot of filler, but the competitor profiles and auditions are worth the wait, especially Cardi B.'s frank commentary. I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. (Trailer)

Creeped Out, Season 2
Everyone else has a horror anthology suited for them, so why can't tweens get one? Oh, they already have Goosebumps. Well, this is kind of like that, except with Canadian and British accents. This season, things get all Black Mirror-y with video games and AI home assistants, but I really want to see the episode about head lice, which could literally just be kids with lice because those monsters on their own are FRIGHTENING. Do yourself a favor and don't click that link. (Trailer)

In the Tall Grass
In this adaptation of the Stephen King and Joe Hill novella, people get stuck in a field of tall grass. For real! Predictably, it's getting middling reviews. And of course I will watch it even though I have a crippling fear of tall grass. (Trailer)

Rotten, Season 2
If you have been looking at the mirror and figure you could stand to lose a few pounds, watch this six-part documentary that chews up and spits out the food industry, from despicable farming techniques to questionable fishing techniques that put products in your supermarket that aren't what they say they are. You won't want to eat anything after watching this. I'll skip this one and be blissfully mowing down this 20-piece Chicken McNuggets combo meal. (Trailer)

My Country: The New Age, Season 1 premiere
In this Korean drama set during the Goryeo dynasty, people fight for love, for honor, and for... my country. (Trailer)

Super Monsters, Season 3 / Super Monsters: Vida's First Halloween
These adorable little monsters are really cute as babies, which should help you get over the fact that when they grow up they'll rip your f---ing throat out. In the holiday film Vida's First Halloween, the monsters get invited to Vida's Dia de los Muertos celebration to open up the franchise to a very important demographic that can help Netflix hit fourth quarter expectations for subscribers. (Trailer)

Legend Quest: Masters of Myth, Season 1
The Mexican animated series about secret monster hunters who chase mythical creatures is already getting spun-off with this series that looks an awful lot like the original series. (Trailer / Saturday, Oct. 5)

Deon Cole: Cole Hearted
I like Deon Cole. I like Deon Cole's pants in this stand-up special. (Trailer / Tuesday, Oct. 8)

The Spooky Tale of Captain Underpants Hack-a-Ween
Keep that kids Halloween content coming, Netflix. (Trailer / Tuesday, Oct. 8)

Ultramarine Magmell, Season 1
In this incredibly Japanese anime, a young adventurer helps others explore a new continent full of weirdos. (Trailer / Thursday, Oct. 10)
