The hor­mone mon­sters are back and they’re ter­ror­is­ing even more pre-pubescent teens. That’s right, Big Mouth Sea­son 2 has ar­rived.

Cre­ated by com­edy jug­ger­nauts Nick Kroll, An­drew Gold­berg, Mark Levin and Jen­nifer Flack­ett, the all-too-re­lat­able adult an­i­mated se­ries fol­lows tweens Nick Birch and An­drew Glou­ber­man as they nav­i­gate their way through the most awk­ward years of any young man’s life.

Pu­berty has never been so funny and the per­son­i­fi­ca­tion of the male and fe­male “hor­mone mon­sters”, who steer the char­ac­ters into disaster af­ter disaster, are par­tic­u­larly in­ge­nious.

Be trans­ported back to the years you bud­ded from child to adult, and laugh at the ex­pense of the fic­tional char­ac­ters bat­tling the ev­ery­day em­bar­rass­ments we all strug­gled through.

Stan

A story of a novelist com­mit­ting crimes from their own books is a re­al­ity that’s been un­cov­ered in news sto­ries over the past years, mak­ing Stan’s new­est se­ries, The Truth About the Harry Que­bert Af­fair, hit close to home in­deed.

Heart-throb Pa­trick Dempsey, known for his role as “McDreamy” on Grey’s Anatomy, plays novelist Harry Que­bert, a lit­er­ary icon who sud­denly finds him­self in the mid­dle of a mur­der in­ves­ti­ga­tion, as the prime sus­pect.

Based on a book by Swiss au­thor Joel Dicker, the story takes a dark turn early on, as the body of a young girl is found in Que­bert’s back­yard, buried with a copy of his book.

Let your­self be en­thralled by this new­est mur­der mystery and see if you can call how the dark tale will end.

ABC iview

Aussie co­me­dian Tim Fer­gu­son is known for many things, from his stand-up to his screen­writ­ing, but the thing that has drawn him so much pub­lic at­ten­tion is both tragic and in­spi­ra­tional — his di­ag­no­sis with mul­ti­ple scle­ro­sis and his abil­ity to go on per­form­ing re­gard­less.

ABC iview’s new­est two-part se­ries Tick F**ck­ing Tock chron­i­cles Fer­gu­son’s jour­ney, along with that of his com­edy band, the Doug An­thony All­stars. The doc­u­men­tary delves into Fer­gu­son’s di­ag­no­sis and how it has af­fected not only the band, but the friend­ship be­tween the com­edy-mu­si­cians.

Chan­nel 7

The Good Doc­tor will see you now and the di­ag­no­sis is dire — you will be glued to the TV as sea­son 2 of this un­miss­able se­ries airs on Chan­nel 7. We may have been ad­dicted to the nar­cis­sis­tic Gre­gory House once upon a time, but au­di­ences around the world are fall­ing in love with the new­est TV doc­tor, Shaun Mur­phey, who has autism, and is played by Fred­die High­more.

The fresh-faced young doc­tor may not know his way around all hu­man emo­tions, but he is one of the best prac­tis­ing sur­geons in the coun­try.

Let your­self be cap­ti­vated by this TV med­i­cal drama that’s only two sea­sons in, but looks like it will have a very long life — with the help of the good-hearted young doc­tor be­hind it all, of course.

The Good Doc­tor re­turns for an­other sea­son.

Big Mouth re­turns for a sec­ond sea­son of pre-pubescent hi­lar­ity.
