Critic Reviews for BoJack Horseman Season 2

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (7)

Bojack itself, which premiered its second season last night, stands head and hoof above other shows that serve as cautionary tales for fame knocking too early in the morning.

Seriously, thank God it's funny because there are some moments of this show that hit really, really hard.

Though Orange is the New Black has laughs buttressing the dramatic bits, BoJack Horseman was Netflix's first true original comedy, and it remains one of the streaming services' sharpest shows, down to its unexpected Christmas special.

Beyond the protagonist, the shining points of this season were the focuses on the female characters and the sharp as ever humor. A couple weaker episode plots aside, this is a great season.

Season two is unmistakably great; it's a huge step up from the first in many ways.

Jul 28, 2015 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

BoJack holds up to the light the delicate insecurities we all harbor before mercilessly shattering them with humor. That it all manages to come across as warm in the end is a testament to the cartoon's unlikely sensitivity, nuance and range.

If you're looking for a compelling-enough reason to start watching an animated comedy about a horse instead of the other critically-acclaimed series sitting in your watchlist, it's "Hank After Dark."

Nov 16, 2015 | Full Review…

Truly, I cannot entirely explain it; and yes, it might be better stoned. But it is a reminder of the gorgeous possibility of animation, the seductive pull of a world with different rules-even for us lonely, disaffected, cynical adults.

Nov 16, 2015 | Full Review…

[It] makes eccentric use of the best innovations in contemporary television comedy: finely tuned and obsessively curated throwaway jokes and gags; unexpected allusions to high and low culture; clever continuity and layers of self-reference.

Season 2, two episodes in, so far has avoided the rough beginning and has wallowed in the adult topics that made the back half of Season 1 so good.

Never stopping to gleefully entertain, Bojack Horseman takes what made the first season great and does it again in spetacular fashion, with its merciless depiction over modern Hollywood never overcoming great characterization and some of the best drama and comedy television has to offer.

Season 2 of BoJack Horseman is full of laughs and keeps the series fresh with its edgy comedy stylings. The overarching story follows BoJack as he starts production on his dream project playing Secretariat and begins dating a TV producer, but before long his self-destructive behaviors jeopardize everything that he's worked for. And, there are some exciting developments with Todd and Mr. Peanutbutter teaming up as business partners, and Princess Carolyn developing a new television show. The writing is quite good at developing multi-episode arcs and at paying off minor plot threads. Also, a number of guest stars make cameos, including George Takei, Paul McCartney, Daniel Radcliffe, Kristin Chenoweth, Ed Helms, and Ricky Gervais. One of Netflix's best original shows, BoJack Horseman delivers a great second season that's incredibly fun and satirical.

Season 1 was a disappointment but season 2 improved so much that I consider it worth watching. Season 2 introduced new characters and new writing style which stayed away from being wacky for the sake of being wacky, it actually had a decent story line and characters became likeable.
