    BoJack Horseman is somehow one of TV's funniest comedies and most affecting dramas all in one weird, addictive little package.

    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.

    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.

    So much of the BoJack DNA is tied up in BoJack's origin story as a '90s network sitcom star because the show itself is actively working against the concept that sitcoms represent the way stories should work; that there are easy answers for any of its characters. And that's what makes it feel so fundamentally true, at its core.

    [The] narrative succinctly pokes at a number of social fissures at once--most obviously the controversy over the treatment of the animals we eat, but it also more figuratively suggests the plights of the elderly and even of immigrants.

An animated sitcom is supposed to provide laughs and enjoyment. The first season provided laughs, but it was very sad watching this series towards the end season, and I really hated BoJack (the character) during season 1 because he was just arrogant. I know that was their intention, but you can't like BoJack, and that I what you want your viewers to do, like the protagonist, but in BoJack's case, he is sometimes an antagonist.

    In season 2, however, BoJack Horseman is a much better character, and the whole season was much funnier than the first season. I also enjoyed the character development in season 2 much more because every character had a story. Todd and Princess Carolyn had much more screen time, which really helped provide material for the remaining time of the episodes.

    I also liked the use of side characters in season 2, such as Sebastian St. Clair, Rutabaga Rabbitowitz, the Improv Group, etc. It really added to the series and provided much more story development within each episode.

    Overall, I would much rather watch Season 2, but I would recommend watching Season 1 if you would like to understand some of the references in Season 2.

The character is awesome because he can act like an idiot at times but then says some keen, insightful things. The jokes are funny too, but you have to be paying attention to catch them since their aren't any punchlines for them. The jokes just arise from normal conversations which takes some clever writing.

    I'm a big fan of the voice actors in this series, so I really wanted to enjoy the show.
    The main character is just so unlikeable, (reminds me of Jason Alexander's cartoon in the late 90's, Duckman, another talking animal show with uninteresting characters.) After watching several episodes, I felt there wasn't any funny moments and each episodes seems to drag . . .

    It just seems to be lacking something, but I'm not interested in the series enough to invest any more time to find out.
