So depressingly enthralling I can’t look away. Must. Binge. Watch.
About: A Netflix original, BoJack Horseman is an animated show about the life of anthropomorphic horse BoJack as he struggles to live his life after the success of his 1980s television sitcom. Voiced by Will Arnett, Bojack is a cynical, narcissistic, sarcastic, self-obsessed, wreck of a horse whose life always seems to be on the verge of falling apart. The story of the show is one that revolves around the writing, release, and aftermath of a ghost written BoJack biography.
The supporting cast of the show features the voice acting talent of Alison Brie, Amy Sedaris, Patton Oswald, Kristen Schaal, and a slew of almost random guest appearances. The show is definitely a dark comedy that will often start with a joke only to end on a moment of profound sadness. The show may at first be off-putting but you should persevere, the show has a very strong emotional core
Why: I was sick at home with an ear infection and thought, why not. Now I can’t think of a reason to stop.
Best Bits: I enjoy almost every scene with Tod, HOLLYWOO, and Princess Caroline’s boyfriend never fails to get me laughing. Also Herb, for me Herb was the turning point for the show.
Thoughts so far: I am really enjoying the show and am about half way through Season Two. In my self-professed vegging that I do after work, BoJack Horseman is a happy companion.
