History Reviews -- History of Swear Words

History Reviews -- History of Swear Words

A new release from Netflix, this series tickles my English major bones. For anyone interested in language, syntax, history of language, or fun with words in general – History of Swear Words is for you. Hosted by Nicholas Cage, the show is a quick four episodes in length. Each episode covers one swear word, its arch of change throughout history, and how it is used today. While this looks to be a vulgar show, the series focuses significantly on the origin and history of the words and how they’re used. None of the terms are used for a laugh or just to fill empty space.  

This series was a fun and brief break from the recent drama of life, trying not to go nutty watching current events. I highly recommend it.
