Bojack Horseman

YukiKoyuki

ayy lmao
bojack is a fucking master piece and princess caroline is my girlfriend. as someone with depression, it hurts and chills me to the fucking bone because i recognize and identify with every single one of bojack's symptoms. its... comforting? but also a weird type of torture porn. love that show tho
also am i the only one who was rooting for caroline and rutabaga? give my girl a happy ending please. i'm super hoping her new management agency won't be more of the same, she needs to take care of herself especially after the fallout with her and bojack

And who thinks the show might bring in more furries?
Uhm, I don't think so. I mean, Zootopia and Pokemon are somewhat capable works that can spark some fascination with anthropomorphic animals (and by far not every anthro fan wants to deal with furries anyway) - BoJack, on the other hand, is just a well-written dramedy that happens to have some anthros in it.

I thought this show has been kind of disappointing actually, but it's gotten better with seasons 3 and 4. As of so far, it hasn't really been the roller coaster of feels that other people I know have advertised it to me as being, and I thought the show became pretty unmeaningful whenever it wasn't focusing on Bojack, which was a lot of the time. That's not to say that the show never became truly sad and emotional, but I still was very underwhelmed given the hype. That said, the social commentary was interesting, it was funny at times and the motivations for the characters felt pretty real.

Of the side characters that have been introduced to the show, I've found Bojack's mum to have the most interesting story by far. She reminds me of the mother in the film The Graduate, and I really wasn't expecting her to be so complex. She alone made season 4 my favourite so far.

I'm really struck by how I've grown to care and root for even peripheral or previously one-joke characters like Todd or Judah.

Todd may be rapidly becoming my favorite character, even.

One of the things I was impressed with was how well they integrated events and implications of older episodes into the newer episodes, and then made a lot of these into running jokes.

For instance, Todd still has the tattoos from when he spent time in prison, the city they live in was renamed to Hollywoo after the D was stolen, and Margo Martindale is continually used in the plot when Bojack does illegal stuff.

Oh I realy love this show. But the topic of Bojack is a verry depressing one. It's all about the philosophy of existencial nihilism and how to deal with it. Bojack is an archetypal hollywood celebrity. He has fame and anything material life can offer. But nevertheless he feels empty. Anyone knows him and loves him for what he affords. But none realy likes him. He lives a life of debaucheries with, drugs, alcohol and meaningless sex just to distrect himself from his inner existencial void in which nothing has a real meaning. This quote from the show realy sums up what life realy is about, according to the main premiss of the show.

I started out not liking this show when I found it about a year or so ago, because I accidentally started with the Christmas Special ep. Friends suggested I go back and actually watch the real series, and I didn't try to again for months. When I did, wow, I was instantly hooked by the insight within it. I'm a major fan of deep psychological topics, especially bleak ones that deal with past experiences, repression, avoidance, loss, and self worth. I guess I feel very connected to those things. Needless to say, Bojack embodies those topics for me, and it only became more deeply ingrained in the series as it went on. It made me absolutely love this show, despite it being something weighty and definitely not feel-good.

This also sums it up exactly.

I'm really excited! The show depresses me and makes me feel bad, but it ended on a somewhat hopeful note for Bojack in the last season, so maybe that sticks? Probably not. I'm invested in the characters though so I'll definitely be watching Season 5!

Only thing is that it has been almost a year since I binged seasons 1-4, so I don't really remember the details very well anymore. :l

Contemplating whether to watch the show again, from the beginning, before season 5.

Big fan of the show. I saw the first 3 episodes and wasn't into it but decided to finish season 1 and move on to another series.

I then became super curious about the direction of Bojack and decided to start season 2. Next thing I know, I wanted to know the direction of the entire cast and started quoting Mr. PB a lot on r/BojackHorseman. It became official. I was hooked on the series.

I am chomping at the bit for season 5. My favorite character is Charlie Witherspoon. Idk why but he is just so unique, and I want to follow his adventures even though he isn't part of the main cast.

He got dealt a bad hand too
Like getting forced into a job he didn't want but felt obliged to do because it was his dads business then he found out his dad passed and was continuing his legacy. It is so sad
.

Hollyhawk is my second fav as well as Mr. PB. But he is everybody's fav lol.

Either way... Season 5 tomorrow, it will take me 3 days to watch it lol xD

This one didn't hit me as hard as the last few did, but rather made me very audibly laugh and have "oh shit" moments. Bojack Horseman is still definitely about depression and emotional strife, but they didn't stew in it like they did with other seasons. I think that fits rather well with the theme of the season also that you need to take action to be a better person rather than just wallow in misery.

This isn't a criticism, they obviously wanted to balance the emotion of the show differently here.

I've been watching the show recently, and I've enjoyed it for the most part. I especially thought Season 3 was very great, I was so invested and I couldn't stop watching. Then I got to Season 4, and it just didn't feel as good to me. The show started shifting the focus away from Bojack and onto the side characters, which is normally alright since their different stories are usually intertwined, but they all just feel so separate now. And the show just got too preachy for me. I hate how they spent an entire episode talking about how women feel like they need to carry guns because of how horrible all men are. That's just insulting. After watching that episode, I've kind of lost interest.

Weird, but I have never heard of this show. Maybe have to check it out; not sure if it is quite my thing, but maybe?

About the only two shows I watch now are MLP and Bob's Burger's. If I like those, ya think I might like this? Also, am not a fan of anything by Seth Macfarlane, or things that have a lotta violence, but maybe this might be up my alley.
