Bojack Horseman: Free Churros

Second season is out! Just watched the first episode and it was not only good but honestly an improvement over the last season too.

For those not familiar with the show
In a world where humans and anthropomorphic animals live side by side, BoJack Horseman, the washed-up star of the 1987 sitcom Horsin' Around, plans his big return to celebrity relevance with a tell-all autobiography that he dictates to his ghostwriter and recent love interest Diane Nguyen. BoJack also has to contend with the demands of his agent and on-again-off-again girlfriend Princess Carolyn, his freeloading roommate Todd Chavez, and his frenemy Mr. Peanutbutter, who is also Nguyen's boyfriend.

It's a show filled to the brim with dark humor. Not for someone looking for something lighthearted but definitely an amazing show overall.

Start binging!

    Binged season 2 today. I am so unhappy there's no more episodes for me to watch, but I'm so happy this show exists. I think it's gold.

    I think what keeps it together, apart from the excellent writing and characters (that I care about as if I or someone close to me created them) is that all the seriousness, its all wrapped up in a fantastical, self-aware and therefore consciously and coherently evolving setting. Like in Community, 30 Rock or OITB, other favorite shows of mine.

    It has the same effect that good fantasy or sci-fi literature has - the subtle detachment from the realistic and sane makes the characters and their situations more meaningful than if they were rooted to the exact same rules that people in reality or realistic shows have to follow.

    I think there's this sensation that what I'm watching promises even greater things for the future, because it combined a daring concept in a different business model, operating in a changing industry and artform, with good-old competent execution and writing. I'm very affected and I want to understand why.

    I'm at Chickens and I had to turn the show off for the time being because holy fuck is that dark. This show gets so bleak sometimes that I have to take regular breaks.

    Also Lisa Kudrow is adorable. I want to date an owl now. YOLO.

    The near end of season 2 gets so super dark. I love this show.

    The cellphone ringer gag in the final episode was fucking amazing. had me in stitches and noone I know listened to serial so I couldn't talk to anyone about it.


    Also I need a big red bag that just says "SPY SHIT" on the side.

    I love this show so much. The punches that the drug hallucination episode near the end of the first season delivered were so emotional, and that were building for the whole season? I was amazed that a cartoon was capable of doing this. And now I'm hearing that the second season has another episode like that? Glorious.

    I've also read that everybody involved in this show has an absolute blast doing it, which only makes me happier. And the names that they get on here! Olberman is one of my favorites.

    Can't wait to get through the rest of second season.

    Maybe. I don't think that's the kind of unambiguous lapse in all judgment the writers/animators wanted to present.

    He told her to go to bed, then left the door open. Maybe he did that subconciously, and he was telling her to leave when the mother walked in, but I doubt it.

    If he meant it that way he probably would have said "Come to bed." Maybe she went after him and that's when he finally cracked.

    Yep, he likes to force other people into a confrontation where they have to forgive him for some awful transgression or put their foot down and throw him out of their lives for good. It fuels his whole self destructive psychodrama.
    there was literally no way for him to do that without getting caught, and he wanted nothing more than to get caught in the act. charlotte kicking him out means he never, ever, ever has to think about her again, and it was "her fault".

    I don't think it was so much him wanting to get caught so much as him trying to fill the void with 'the next best thing' because Charlotte said no even though he rebuked Penny twice already. I think Bojack at that point has already given up on being a good person. He knows he's a piece of shit. He knows he's broken. He's just grasping at whatever temp relief he can get and being selfish and destructive. As soon as the prom came up, I buckled in. Bojack had been grooming Penny, (I don't think that was intentional but that's what it was) for the past couple months he'd been there. The writers on the show don't seem too interested in leaving behind that kind of ambiguity.

    I do find it interesting it was pointed out that the f-bomb has only been used twice on the show. Both times by people from his past he felt the strongest connection to ejecting him from their lives.

    Man, I've been told how to pronounce Nguyen like 5 times and I keep forgetting.

    Also I love Wanda even if Bojack doesn't.

    Northern Vietnam: a quite fast (it sounds like one syllable) "gouyen" with the briefest of stops before the "g" sound. The 'ou' part of the vowel sound is really short.

    Southern Vietnam: More difficult - sounds like how you'd pronounce the onomatopoeia "boing" if it had a g in the beginning. The beginning G is nasal, the vowel sound (diphthong) in the middle shifts from 'oi' to a subtle 'eh' sound (approx. how the first 'e' in 'cayenne' is pronounced) and the final -ng sound has a very weak g.

    It seems as if critics are a lot more positive this time around, which is great. The first season isn't easy to get into but the 6/10 average it received is ridiculous.
