HUMAN RESOURCES SERIES REVIEW
Are you there God? It’s me, sexy shock humour. Netflix popular raunchy comedy series Big Mouth has now got a spin-off about the Hormone Monsters, Love Bugs, Shame Wizards, Logic Rocks and Ambition Gremlins in the workplace comedy Human Resources. Love Bug Sonya Poinsettia (Pamela Adlon) is suddenly fired and dragged out of office leaving her pregnant client Becca (Ali Wong) sans love bug. Emmy Fairfax (Aidy Bryant) a YOLO impulsive rookie intern must set aside her party life style and woman-up to help Becca through a pregnancy and marriage on the rocks. Along the way she’ll give and pick up advice from work colleagues and friends such as Maury the Hormone Monster (Nick Kroll), Connie (Maya Rudolph), Pete the Logic Rock (Randall Park), and many more new and returning characters from the beloved parent series. Bradly, Jena, Harmoni and Trevor discuss the horrifying secrets of post pregnancy, the avalanche of A-list actor cameos (such as Hugh Jackman and Lupita Nyong’o), and which hormone monster they would have preferred all those years ago during their own Judy Blume life journeys.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)
Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.
Jena Perry (Screener Squad)
Jena Perry. Aka Luna. Aka Dion. Aka Memori. Aka Dog whisperer. Aka whiskey connoisseur. As you can see, depending on when you met this Oakland, California native, you have experienced a completely different person, each time. After finally deciding on a 13+year career choice as a Videographer and Radio Personality, Jena balances her time between pursuing her Doctorate in Philosophy, providing insightful and funny critiques on films and Television, raising her daughter and dog in Ohio, and constantly fighting off the existential dread that is being a dope black woman in America in the 20th century.
Harmoni Anderson (Screener Squad, Highly Suspect Reviews, Unstabletop Gaming)
Harmoni is a mermaid-haired, millennial, rum drinking, Section 31, Slytherin (who’s divorced J.K. Rowling) preschool/nursery teacher and multi genre geek who also loves all things film, tv, fashion, makeup, and an embarrassingly huge BTS stan. Like really embarrassing. As in, mention them and then sit back and watch the insanity. Harmoni likes being able to game and talk movies/TV with people that aren’t 3 feet tall or all that demanding of her. Plus she can curse at us and not get fired….so bonus!
Trevor Trujillo (Screener Squad)
Trevor T. Trujillo is a One Of Us contributor in addition to being the co-host, co-founder, and co-producer of the Nighthawks Podcast.
