    Netflix's BoJack Horseman evolved from frothy talking-animal Hollywood satire to character-rich treatise on depression in its first season, deepened and darkened into one of TV's best shows in its second season and gallops into its third season with a profound confidence.

    There’s a precision in the show’s expansion, a sense that the creative team wants to explore every corner of their comedy world--and every corner of the character’s psyches. Season 3 builds to one of the funniest, weirdest, and most profound moments I’ve ever seen in a television show--and that’s before the season finale.

    Many Season 3 episodes are definable in simple terms (“the one where BoJack goes on a press tour,” “the one where BoJack fights with Princess Caroline,” “the flashback episode”). They actually function as stand-alone on a level that you honestly don’t see too often. This leads to some jaw-dropping installments, which iris in on character on levels that range from hilarious to heartbreaking.

    The absurdist comedy and hallucinatory visuals match the series’ take on Hollywood as a reality-distortion field. But the series never takes an attitude of easy superiority to its showbiz characters. At heart, BoJack Horseman is a comedy about lonely people (and animals) who are never by themselves. That melancholy spirit comes through beautifully in the stunning fourth episode of the new season.

    With its mix of curveball innovations and very BoJack elements, season three of Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s cartoon sitcom set in a species-mixed world of humans and animals might be its best overall, though it necessarily lacks the aspect of jaw-dropping surprise that made it so beguiling in its first two outings.

    Bojack continues to inventively satirize its own industry, while deepening the anguish of its main cast, and building out its surreal, animated world in ways that dazzlingly reflect our own.

    If I rarely find Horseman more than mildly amusing, I certainly recognize the careful craft behind it, as well as the excellent vocal performances by regulars including Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Paul F. Thompkins, and Aaron Paul.

We continue to see more and more of the characters develop in a natural, yet surprising way. This black comedy has once again had me laughing, pondering, and riding an emotional rollercoaster as we watch beloved characters succeed or fail. Bojack, Diane, and Princess Carolyn's character development is especially poignant and will engage long time viewers who are already invested in the show. New characters like Judah, Anna, and Jessica Biel along with the return of Vanessa Gecko, Rutabega Rabittowitz, Sextina Aquafina, Kelsey, Sarah Lynn and Charley Witherspoon supplement the cast and provide for hilarity and depravity to ensue. Wonderful season. Expand

    While Season 1 was focused more on comedy, and Season 2 was a comedic, thought-provoking, marvelous season, Season 3 tends to try way to hardWhile Season 1 was focused more on comedy, and Season 2 was a comedic, thought-provoking, marvelous season, Season 3 tends to try way to hard to be...deep..

    Season 3 has such a cynical tone to it, and it always tries to be more drama-bent, which doesn't quite work with a cartoon about a celebrity horse. The characters also lose a lot of their original and likeable character traits. Mr. Peanutbutter becomes more angry and distrusting, Todd becomes completely distant from Bojack which I found upsetting, Diane becomes very preachy, and many of the new characters are very aggravating and unlikeable.

    However, I did enjoy the first few episodes, especially Fish Out of Water, but it's delightful tone eventually dies down to a depressing mess. Everyone in this season seems unhappy which is very unpleasant.

    Side note: Worst episode of the season was Old Acquaintance.
