BoJack Horseman -- Netflix cartoon -- S: Arnett, Sedaris, Paul, Brie



http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3398228/

Anyone watching this show? Saw it on my Netflix and tried watching the pilot, but like most Will Arnett shows post AD (imo of course), it was underwhelming. Such a shame since the cast is so great, but there are a few funny parts. I know pilots can be rough to judge a whole show by, so I'll try a few more eps but my expectations are very low.

I saw the first two, and liked it. Seems like the animal puns/jokes might get old after a while, but for now it's not bad.

The pilot is rocky, but it gets better as it goes on.

Yeah it really changes gears later. The animal related jokes are well spaced out, so that wasn't an issue like I thought it might be. Good show. Funny that Michael Eisner is one of the guys behind it as well.

I only paid attention because of the cast.

Thought it was funny.

First episode was decent I guess, I might watch more.

I'm on episode 4.

This is a brash show. It's not friendly. Reminds me of Duckman.

I think it's a little gem.

I'm really enjoying this, I'm emotionally invested in the characters far more than I thought I would.

I'm 9 episodes in, and I just finally got the joke of calling the dog Mr. Peanut Butter.

Watched a few episodes. Didn't find it all that funny. Don't think Arnett is a very good voice actor.

I liked Naomi Watts' character. The episode where Bojack tries writing was ridiculously accurate.

I thought this was great. I'm surprised by all the... naysayers.

Nice surprise getting an extra episode of BoJack.

In the first season, I loved seeing the flashback stuff about the sit-com, so this was right up my ally. I liked all the little touches like the annoying studio audience, and how the Horsing Around producer did the voice of the boss (sort of like how Larry David did voice cameos for unseen characters on Seinfeld).

Seeing this in my netflix for months, I finally got around to watching it. It was really good, not some simple shallow funny cartoon, it was actually pretty deep and emotional at parts, with a lot of little jokes that could be overlooked and callbacks from things that happened in previous episodes.

What's also pretty funny is if you search for Horsin' Around on netflix, there is an Easter egg in the form of that "shows" trailer, made to look like it comes from a bad VHS tape, I laughed at that by itself a few times

Looking forward to season two

Yeah. I dug it a lot when I last saw it. Kind of wish it was a longer season. I ran through that season like crazy.

I think I've seen maybe half the season. Meh. Not sure I'll finish. My favorite was the Christmas episode. I think I'd much rather watch Horsin' Around.

Finally remembered to check this show out once this Friday's Season 2 release started being promoted. I really enjoyed it. Great voice cast, with tons of guest spots.
