There's not a lot of excitement to be had in "Brand New Couch," despite the titillating title; however, as a reintroduction in Boj's world, it does well to establish some of the themes to be explored through the season.

Watching BoJack, both the character and the series evolve, is a marvelous, honest experience, and its second season is a worthy addition to the show's library.

This tonnage of sardonic yet quasi-sincere encounters and connections only intermittently aspires to belly laughs... but it's unerringly fascinating, clever, and beguiling in its emotional resonance.

It's destined to become a cult classic in the same way, but instead of offering wave after wave of jokes, Bojack includes a lot of heart, so afterwards we are never sure whether the tears from crying from laughter or the sadness are separated.

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.

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."

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.

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.

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

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.

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.
July 20, 2015
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.
July 20, 2015
BoJack Horseman is still ridiculously funny, and even though it continues to get in touch with its inner horseman, the series' dark, absurdist humor remains in check -- if not more potent than ever before.
July 20, 2015
Seriously, thank God it's funny because there are some moments of this show that hit really, really hard.

Netflix's BoJack Horseman has found its footing beautifully in season two, earning the title of not just the streaming service's best show, but of one of television's best shows.
July 17, 2015
If 'BoJack 2' is not always as funny as 'BoJack 1' - which is to say it's still really, really, super-mega-ultra-funny - it still offers an even more mature, deeper and more sobering stare into the abyss.
July 17, 2015
It's the equal partnership of intelligent, absurdist humor and biting drama that has elevated BoJack Horseman to one of the best shows on TV or the internet.

The show sets itself apart by peeling back the acidic snark just enough to reveal a beating, if bruised, heart. Most impressively, it manages to make the plight of a self-centered, filthy rich ex-sitcom star sympathetic.

It's an absurd Hollywood satire, but also a deep character study of a profoundly depressed (horse)man, and it may be one of the saddest shows in all of television. And also one of the very best.
