It strikes a perfect balance between genuine laughter and laughing through the tears. And that's how it distinguishes itself from so many other sitcoms currently on television.

If this seems like heavy stuff for a cartoon, BoJack has earned it.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

By now, we shouldn't be surprised that BoJack can do anything, or be anything. It can be the funniest show on TV and the saddest within the span of seconds.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

By consistently pushing the boundaries of mental health discussions and characterizations on TV, BoJack has managed to make itself one of the most interesting and engaging animated shows, ever.
