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.

I've really taken a shine to pausing when the frame is loaded with text.

I really enjoyed this one. Particularly the soundtrack and music. It reminded me of the first 40 minutes of Wall-E.

This show is a slow burn for me. Season 1 was mostly crap, Season 2 was uneven but mostly pretty good, Season 3 is approaching greatness.

Currently slogging through Season 1 because of what you guys have said about the other two. I actually think it's slowly getting better but as of yet nothing all that great.

S3E5 -SPOILERS

Tanisha (sp?): I love Karen but..does she complete me?

Bojack: Tanisha, nobody completes anybody. That's not a real thing.....

Tanisha: So what? I should just settle?

Bojack: Yes! Thank you! Exactly! Settle! Because otherwise you're just going to get older and harder and more alone. And you're going to do everything you can to fill that hole with friends and your career and meaningless sex, but the hole doesn't get filled. And one day you're going to look around and realize that everybody loves you!

But nobody likes you.

And that is the loneliest feeling in the world.

(Stall door opens)

Tanisha's dad: The wedding is back on!!!

(Cheers!)

The disturbing thing about it is that it works. It resolves the crisis. She snaps out of it and her marriage is back on. The camera cuts to a room full of happy people. The catalyst for that joy and relief in the room is an emphasized fear of loneliness in middle to old age.

This fucking show.

The first 8 episodes or so of this season made me think that it's the best one yet. Then that episode at the restaurant with just PC and BoJack was kind of a dud, and the ones after it were like that too, even though I knew they were setting us up to something big. The something big wasn't that big. It was obvious to not let BoJack win an Oscar or even be nominated. This says it best

\Spoiler:

I liked the joke that Todd tipped $8 million dollars to the waitress and that was like "I'm poor again!", but it also stunted Todd's development.

\End of spoiler.

I still liked it a lot, but I think season 2 is my favorite so far.

That makes no sense. It's his last moment of the season. How can it possibly stunt his development? It's just changing gears for wherever he goes next.


Todd made $8 mil from selling his business. He accidentally tipped $8 million, and I'm pretty sure (just because of the way he always is) that he didn't ask for it to be changed. So he's poor again, therefore has to stay on BoJack's couch because he has no money. He'll keep coming up with good ideas that he doesn't make money out of but other people do. I would have liked to see what rich Todd would do or how he would burn the money and not by tipping it all at a diner.

I disagree.

The underwater episode in season 3 is magnificent.

SPOILERS

Outside of 'Fish out of Water' and 'Brrapp! Brrapp! Pew! Pew!' I think this was the best episode of the season. I'm so floored by how consistently good the acting performances are on this show when it's just voice-over work, and this was probably the best example yet. This episode had devastating performances from Arnett and Sedaris. I felt their anger, their insecurities, their weaponized knowledge of each other, and their resignation and fear of knowing that their lives would be altered with each other's absence. It was all while playing a cat and a horse. The physical destruction of the restaurant Bojack has neglected going side by side the deterioration of a 23 year friendship, both of which ended in a too-little-too-late gesture of PC stepping up to salvage what remained of the present circumstances was an excellent touch. Finally, a big helping of Paul F. Tompkins doing an outrageous fake Italian accent iced the cake. I loved this episode. It was ONLY the third best of the season.
