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.
Heartbreaking self destructive marvel. When the show leans into it's darker themes it shines. Addiction and codependeny take the lead resulting in irrevocably paths for not only our favourite long faced horse but everyone. The writers for this show should be lauded for the attention they keep to detail or the animators little easter eggs and cultural references laced throughout the animation.
Bojack's 3rd season fixed all and any mistake seen before. Funny as 1st one, dramatic, acid and with a lot of critcize sense as 2nd one. As it as little thing, silly jokes glues with drama and social dennouce. Here the show hugs the bizarre humor as its best artifact, bringing too much of hillarious jokes, tragicomic and moral hangover moments, everything extremely well balanced. Now, it's almost impossible watching Bojack Horseman and don't became a different person, being punched on the face or at least being touched. One of the most onnivore shows of all time, that hitted its apex on 3rd season, the best one of Bojack Horseman.
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 Horseman ends up becoming a thrilling, rueful study of the psychological games and uniquely vain, notably capitalistic decision-making that powers the entertainment industry. And yet, through its venomous jokes and unrelenting, uproarious gags, the series also recognizes how charming, joyful, and galvanizing entertainment for entertainment sake can be, no matter how stupid or silly it may seem.
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.
It develops the characters and plays off of consistency, alongside the re-peat jokes if you pay attention. It is depressing and deep, but offers philosophic insight into what this comedic drama will offer.
Well, this show definitely went to a dark place this season, but hold up, I thought this was supposed to be a comedy? Because it was not funny anymore. I still enjoyed the season, and will continue to watch, but I hope it finds its sense of humor again next season. And I hated - HATED - the abortion propaganda - yeah, killing a child is just a choice. Get out of here with that nonsense.
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 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.
I absolutely loved season 1 and season 2, But season 3 is starting to get "Progressive Preachy". If you don't mind having abortion rights rammed down your throat, or told that all white men are pretty much evil. Then season 3 of this show is for you. It just seems like they are looking at these issues in a much less open way, and much more preachy instead of insightful like the previous 2 seasons.
