We didn’t either
Did we know The History of Swear Words was a show we needed in our lives? No! But with how 2021 is going so far, we need more and as soon as possible. Six episodes were not enough.

Do not watch this show with your parents unless you want a lecture every fifteen seconds. But if your mom is Amy Poehler from Mean Girls level cool, then we definitely recommend watching with her.
Watching the ‘History of Swear Words’ can tell Americans made it, running scared of the word ‘cunt’ but do an episode on ‘Damn’ instead pic.twitter.com/dzQdHDqDIW

They’re just words
Listen, Americans find everything taboo. It’s not that shocking they are easing their way into swear words. But we agree, damn’s not a swear word – we use it every damn day. But damn it, if The History of Swear Words doesn’t get more seasons soon, we’re never watching another Netflix show.
