Drop Everything and Go Watch Sweet Tooth Right Now

Written by lucks

This is a spoiler free review so you can read on whether or not you’ve seen season 1 of Sweet Tooth.

Sweet Tooth on Netflix is the fun, quirky, heartwarming TV show I didn’t know I needed. The characters, the acting, the gorgeous cinematography, and the soundtrack are all perfection, I simply can’t say enough good things about this TV show.

Ten years ago “The Great Crumble” wreaked havoc on the world and led to the mysterious emergence of hybrids — babies born part human, part animal. Unsure if hybrids are the cause or result of the virus, many humans fear and hunt them. After a decade of living safely in his secluded forest home, a sheltered hybrid deer-boy named Gus (Christian Convery) unexpectedly befriends a wandering loner named Jepperd (Nonso Anozie). Together they set out on an extraordinary adventure across what’s left of America in search of answers— about Gus' origins, Jepperd's past, and the true meaning of home. But their story is full of unexpected allies and enemies, and Gus quickly learns the lush, dangerous world outside the forest is more complex than he ever could have imagined.

The series is based on graphic novels but you don’t need to read them first for it to make sense (I haven’t read them yet and I still enjoyed the show immensely).

While many people turn to TV to escape the reality of the Coronavirus pandemic over the past year, Sweet Tooth is set in a world heavily impacted by a deadly respiratory virus similar to COVID-19 that wiped out a large portion of the human population. While it can hit a little too close to home at times and has some pretty heavy scenes, the show always does a good job of balancing out the serious with the whimsical and making you smile.

Without delving into spoilers, I will say that I cried 5 times over the 8 episodes, not necessarily due to sad scenes but from the sheer beauty of certain scenes and the selflessness of some of the characters.

Sweet Tooth set in Yellowstone National Park and the main characters travel to Colorado but the series was actually filmed in New Zealand. The sweeping beauty of nature combined with some impressive special effects make for a breathtaking backdrop for the series and instill the viewer with awe and wonder for the natural world.

While all of the actors were incredibly talented, I have to give recognition to Christian Convery who played Gus. This kid absolutely crushed it. He’s only 11 years old but he brought the character of Gus to life in a way that few other actors his age could do. He perfectly captured Gus’s endless optimism and eternal hope while also being able to knock the more serious and emotional scenes out of the park. You can’t help but fall in love with Sweet Tooth and that’s thanks in large part to the talent of Christian Convery.

I could go on and on about how amazing the supporting cast of characters is too, but the only way to truly see how excellent they all are is for you to watch it yourself.

All 8 episodes of season 1 are now streaming on Netflix and it looks like a season 2 announcement is imminent so do yourself a favor and go watch this incredible TV show right now.
