The release of Sweet Tooth and upcoming release of Sexy Beasts on Netflix has some asking: What’s up with Netflix’s fascination with animal-human hybrids?
Alert: spoilers ahead! Two Netflix original series set to be released in summer 2021 are based, to a certain extent, on animal-humans. The first, Sweet Tooth, grapples with pertinent questions about ethics and science, and is well-worth viewers’ time — reflected in its 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. The other, Sexy Beasts, has yet to be released but looks like another bizarre reality-dating series, and is garnering backlash from the community one would think would be most inclined to enjoy the show.
