Human Resources: Meet the Professionals Solving Every Grown-Up Problem

As the title goes, Human Resources is a series that centres itself around the resources that make humans, human which essentially includes most of our emotions, decision-making skills and other features. This series has taken each of these aspects and transformed them into a work division at the Human Resources office. The team members belonging to various departments include Hormone Monsters, Shame Wizards, Love Bugs, Depression Kitties, Logic Rocks and others.

The series progresses as we see these different creatures working in sync with humans which are assigned to them through the tubes. This gives rise to several inter lapping subplots taking place starting from Love Bug Emmy’s first assignment- Becca to Hormone Monsters having their own set of personal and corporate problems to Yara’s love and dementia.

Human Resources does not aim to particularly follow a formulaic method of storytelling. The narrative resembles both that of a drama with recurring storylines and that of a sitcom, with new additions every other episode. At its best, fans will immediately recognize that the series follows a narrative that is unique to its parent series, Big Mouth. It aims to tell multiple, interesting stories in small segments and, make you laugh all the while.

However, if you aren’t familiar with this style of storytelling, it might get confusing because each episode produces almost four to five simultaneously storylines that you need to keep track of to pick it up in the following episode. Yet the show never loses its charm of being a laughter ride with certain emotional and surprisingly sentimental segments. The raunchiness stays strong throughout and, it is never afraid to delve deeper into a topic that most people who be hush-hush about. The corporate setting that our characters are put into adds some extra zest to the show and truly reminds one of the critically acclaimed sitcoms The Office, every now and then.

Human Resources: Final Verdict

Overall, Human Resources is a series to sit back and enjoy while you explore and learn about topics that are important but hardly get time to linger in your head. Unlike Big Mouth, this show tries to navigate itself towards a more emotional narrative rather than being educational and, it is successful in keeping the audiences interested and invested while doing so. The characters are obviously the best part of the show and, at times the theme is reminiscent of the 2015 film Inside Out.

You can stream all the episodes of Human Resources now on Netflix.
