The final eight episodes of BoJack Horseman have aired, and the series is finished. I wrote my review of the first half of this season way back in the previous decade, back in December 2019. [For the record, I insist that my decades begin on a zero, as do centuries and millenniums (millennia?)] If the […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 6 (Part 2) — a final review"
The final eight episodes of Season 6 of Netflix’s amazing animated series BoJack Horseman are scheduled to drop on January 26, 2020. This review is for the first eight episodes of the last season. Those of you who still dismiss animated shows as kiddie fare haven’t been watching this one, which pairs anthropomorphized animals and […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 6 (Part One) — a review"
You probably knew already that Season 6 of BoJack Horseman is the final season of this wonderfully bleak and bitter animated series which includes both human and anthropomorphized animal characters.

Season 3 is […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 3: “That’s Too Much, Man!” — a review"
Yes, this Netflix original is a cartoon that features animal characters alongside human ones. And, yes, the lead character is a horse-man named BoJack, voiced by Will Arnett of Arrested Development fame. The show also relies, heavily, on sight gags and animal-centric puns. Here are a few: “Ewe-Haul” instead of “U-Haul.” Guitars signed by “Woodchuck” […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 2 — a review"
Everyone should have a guilty pleasure that doesn’t hurt anyone else. Mine (or, at least, one of them) is BoJack Horseman. I knew the program existed before I started watching it. A cartoon with animal characters in it. Didn’t seem like the kind of stuff I would get into. However, I pride myself (which goeth […]Read more "BoJack Horseman: Season 1 — a review"
