Quit horsin’ around and watch BoJack Horseman

When Netflix announced an animated series about an anthropomorphic horse, we were a tad skeptical. However, all our doubts vanished merely 10 minutes into the first episode! 

As the name blatantly states, BoJack Horseman is about BoJack (Will Arnett), a horse-man. BoJack, who was a star on a ’90sTV show, is now a has-been with a chance at a comeback. This is in the form of a book, which chronicles the rise and fall of the former star. The only problem? BJ, as he is fondly known, is too much of a slacker to even write a word! This is where Diane (Alison Brie), his human ghostwriter, enters the picture. Also in the equation is Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris), BJ’s ex-girlfriend and current agent, who also happens to be a pink Persian cat, and you have a rollicking combination. What’s better? BoJack also has a roommate (Aaron Paul) with an alternative lifestyle called laziness!

Though BoJack Horseman starts off as a light-hearted comedy, it quickly evolves into a real exploration of emotions and characters. The show is as intelligent as it is heartfelt, which makes for the ideal blend. Underneath the horse puns, there are issues we can all relate to. No matter what arcs the show explores, it never loses the self-awareness that makes it so witty and entertaining.

It also helps that the voice-acting is top-notch. Will Arnett of Arrested Development fame voices the titular character perfectly. In fact, once you watch the show, you might just want him to switch over to voice-acting completely! The same goes for Alison Brieand Amy Sedaris, who manage to add just the right amount of weirdness to their characters. Though we would’ve never peggedAaron Paul for a great voice-actor, he is perfect as Todd Chavez. The only drawback, however, is the fact that his character is a little too similar to Jesse Pinkman. For what it’s worth, we don’t think many people are complaining about it, though!

The animation is far from top-notch, it is still an apt fit for the show. The colors in the frames are almost as vibrant as the characters themselves. But BoJack Horseman never tries to go overboard with the visuals. The show keeps the animation minimalistic, which never takes focus away from the plot.

Our favorite thing about the Netflix series, however, are the sly jokes (and the not-very-sly ones too). Between Pinky Penguin, the head of a publishing house (no prizes for guessing which one!) and Mr. Peanutbutter’s dog puns, we just can’t get enough!

Watch BoJack Horseman if you enjoy adult animation, but can’t quite get into shows like Family Guy. If you enjoy shows that are hilarious, yet profound, this show is right up your alley. So what are you still waiting for? Saddle up and watch BoJack Horseman!
