Once [the show found its stride]...it revealed a great sensitivity alongside its earthier elements, as well as a wonderful articulacy in unpacking our quotidian burdens and entertainment-industry conventions.
But even in its most relentless moments, there's enough humor to keep BoJack from sinking as low as BoJack himself often descends-and enough poignancy to keep viewers coming back, ideally for several seasons to come.
It's one of the most aggressive portraits of depression I think I've ever seen. Look past the anthropomorphic animal characters and the satire of toxic celebrity culture: This show is radically sad. I love it.
The humour is wry and bittersweet and there's also a really great theme tune by Jesse Novak, so while BoJack Horseman might not be an obvious candidate to sit alongside the Netflix greats, subscribers should give it a chance.
There are already plenty of mediocre shows to go around. These days, most people don't have time to keep up with the really good television ones. So I'm not quite sure what Netflix is thinking with BoJack Horseman.
