Bojack Horseman

This show is constantly regarded as the best show ever and I am tired of it. Is there any complaints or nitpicks you have about it?

    It's a circular formula of Bojack trying to better himself then doing something outrageous and apparently hitting rock bottom. The returns diminish over time.

      I think the story would've worked better had they did this instead.

      Bojack a fading star, but has been given his laurels and is remembered fondly. There is issues boiling under the surface, but we only seem glimpses.
      Manages to smooze his way back into relevancy and getting bigger roles. Finally gets to be a 'movie star', but there is drama on set.
      Inciting incident causes him to spiral, paparazzi try to make bank on it and he tries to cover it up.

      Only for someone from his past, let's say his shitty Mom to come in. We get a season of his backstory and how he's barely kept shit together. He loses it and goes down a dark path, maybe killing Sarah Lynn in a car accident instead of ODing.Maybe this is an attempted suicide but only she dies. Survivor's guilt and small things build up over time he goes to rehab.
      Eventually decides to retire somewhere quiet finding peace, writes a book that helps others instead of the self-indulgent biography at the start of the series.

      But TL;DR he only has one big relapse and downfall instead of doing that shit every season.

    It should have crashed and burned.
    The lesson was perfectly illustrated with bojack drowning in that pool, a cautionary tale.

    It’s a show shitting on Hollywood written by Hollywood writers, it all comes off as hollow self deprecation shit and never really hits any of the really fricked up stuff because they know if they went there they would be blacklisted at best.

      >shady contracts
      >suicide
      >domestic abuse
      >blacklisting due to sexual orientation
      >realistic child actor trauma and the outcome of that

      What exactly do you want it to show? Graphic on-screen rape? The show already tackles an extremely wide variety of topics that are serious issues in Hollywood, I genuinely don't understand what people want out of it when it's already one of the most realistic portrayals of why Hollywood sucks shit and the terrible people in the industry. It goes about as far as it realistically can without being immediately cancelled or rejected. I see this criticism so much but I have no idea what anyone fricking wants.

      The first 3 or 4 episodes are generally pretty bad. At least watch all of Season 1 and then make your choice. It gets good around whatever episode he steals the D from the Hollywood sign.

    My biggest complaint is with the last two seasons, and the fact that the finale doesn't work without them. The type of shitty person he is changes, and it fundamentally alters the course of the show. He suddenly becomes a violent rapist, not even remotely in keeping with his previous scummy nature, just so that the 'unhappy ending' works. It's like right before the finish line they realized "ah frick we have to make him worse or audiences won't be on board with the Bojack Gets #MeToo'd ending"

        That's still the worst thing he did sexually speaking, it's just that a lot of his past relationships get put into the spotlight as grooming/imbalanced power dynamics. Sarah Lynn (knew her as a child), Princess Caroline (was his subordinate), and that one girl who was president of his fanclub (too much power over fans) for example.

    My complaint is that for a show that supposedly goes super deep into pre-planning the plot, it's pretty obvious that the writers are only thinking one season at a time, since there's so many plot points that are just dropped or ignored one season later after all the build up.

      That's virtually every western made show. Virtually all of them have clear 'seams' between seasons and I can hardly think of anything that was actually planned out on a multi season basis.

    I didn't like how flat the animation style was. It works, but it makes me sad how much more dynamic and interesting the show could have looked if it was more hand drawn.

    It's annoying having a show with good writing get bogged down by an over-reliance on rigged animation. I'm not saying rigged is inherently bad but imo it wasn't the best option for this specific show.

    Bojack as a show has good moments, but as an overall narrative it kind of is lack luster.

    My main complaints

    >Set up Bojack as this shitty abusive alcoholic person who is trying but failing
    >Season 4 introduces Hollyhock and an uplifting ending for Bojack
    >Creator gets assmad people sympathize with the main character and doubles down retconning stuff to make him look worse
    >Sarah Lynn's death is more directly his fault because he refused to call paramedics for 17 minutes
    >The interview scene and the ending where everyone pushes Bojack out of their life
    >In spite of him getting rehab and trying so hard to turn around
    >No flashbacks to Bojack interacting with his Dad or Butterscotch's backstory, he just fricks his maid and secretary and is generally shitty
    >All things Todd and PB related
    >PB being a one note joke character whose depth is ditched because reasons
    >Todd is not funny and gets tedious as hell to follow, he's also boring
    >Everything to do with Diane
    >Princess Caroline and her mouse bf was stupid AF
    >Extremely preachy and cringe when it came to political stuff

    It only did the depression porn stuff good and that's it.

    I just got done with a rewatch and I got a nitpick, characters exhale in exasperation way, way too often and it gets super repetitive. If I were less lazy I could probably compile them all into a video and it would go at least 5 minutes or so of characters, usually Princess Caroline, making the same sound over and over again.

    I get that it's a show with people who generally get frustrated about stuff, but there had to be another way for the writers and voice directors to have the actors express that.

    Where? I wouldn't even say it's the best adult animated show. Hell not even the best Cinemaphile show. It's good and has some very well executed highs but even so it's not eevn close to its competition.
