I watched the entire season for some reason. It had its moments but it's pretty forgettable imho.

crap.

Awright, just finished this season.

None of the comedy in this thing works at all. This show isn't funny at all.

Somehow the characters are really compelling though. The emotional content hits way harder than it should.

Too bad it's not funny.

Watched the first three episodes of S2 last night, so far it's funnier AND sadder than the first season. Great quote from Henry Winkler as himself in the third episode:

There’s no shame in dying for nothing. That’s why most people die.

Vincent Adultman is one of the best animated characters.

I agree. I also thought the whole HSAC!WDTK?DTKT??LFO! arc was hilarious. The whole season was incredible!

After avoiding this for over a year, I gave it a chance after it got some comparisons to Moral Orel. Almost done with Season 1.

How much does Season 2 focus on comedy? This show is NOT CRAP but Jesus Christ the "humor" in this show is almost as awful as any Seth McFarlane piece of shit.

NC!

The shows humor is hit or miss(though its focus on running jokes that build on each other is really cool) but the second season shows that its more about the characters than the comedy and had some rather heart wrenching moments. I would say Hank after Dark is one of the best episodes of TV I have seen in a long time.

The second season was a little scattered but it was great. The arc of the season felt a bit off to me, but all the necessary high points were hit.

On the one hand, the finale might have felt too tidy/rushed, for instance, but on the other hand, I don't even know how I'm typing this because the anguish of the penultimate episode literally made me kill myself and I'm a ghost now.

Yeah, that episode was murderous. The worst part is that, like, they basically let you know what was about to happen and just spent several minutes making the inevitable horrible thing even worse.

Bumping this because it's almost Christmas, and on Netflix there's 'Bojack Horseman: Sabrina's Christmas Wish', where Bojack and Todd watch an old Christmas episode of 'Horsin' Around' that Todd brings over. The episode is funny and kind of sweet. Bojack and Todd make MST3K-type comments throughout the viewing.

I've been rewatching season 2 episodes. I was not a fan of season 1 and said I wouldn't watch the next season, but after hearing how good it was, I gave it a shot. Wow, it's pretty great. Love the 'Escape From LA' episode.

Not crap.

Everybody here, please watch Moral Orel. Or if you're strapped for time just watch these episodes.

The Blessed Union
Loyalty
Maturity
The Best Christmas Ever
God's Image
Love
Satan
Offensiveness
The Lord's Prayer
Be Fruitful and Multiply
Repression
Courtship
School Pageant
And then the last 15 episodes

Not enough people know about the show and I'd say in many ways its the spiritual predecessor to Bojack, except even more rarely funny and 10 times as depressing.

If it wasn't for you guys talking this up I would never have made it through the first couple of episodes, which were awful, but by halfway through the first series it seems to have found its feet. The sympathetic examination of Princess Carolyn's lonely life, culminating with her phone wishing her a happy birthday ("You are: 40") was quite effective.

I like that this is a proper serial with a continuously developing story.

Just finished S3.

I don't think it's as strong as S2, in terms of story development or pure emotional torment. But it might be funnier outright. (I have a feeling I was just caught off-guard, but Sarah Lynn justifying getting her AA chip made me laugh harder than anything else this year.)

Still good a series.

Episode four, "Fish Out of Water", is one of the finest pieces of episodic TV ever made.

I really love the different levels of humor in this show. The sight gags, the puns, the sophomoric stuff. There's something for everyone.
