Bojack Horseman

Does anyone else find the way the characters talk to be a little jarring?

    It’s supposed to be self aware, not excusing it, just putting it out there.

      This. It's a joke, but the worldview of the writers is so hamfisted that they can't do it in a very funny or interesting way. The later seasons of Bojack got pretty corny.

      It's the tonal whiplash, one second a character is having a breakdown, then the "self aware" joke is out of place

      tbh I think that was one of the biggest problems of the show, it would go into actually nuanced writing with pretty interesting points to make but then jump to some other plot point where a character would be written as this clearly self-aware caricature. The inconsistent tone drove me nuts sometimes, especially as the show went on and it felt like they were almost afraid to commit to something that was just completely genuine.

        Again not defending but the point was to show that they were for the most part unchanging, it wasn’t out of not knowing or not being able to but simply not wanting to. It’s a very good analogy for how shitty Hollywood is but from a writing perspective it sucks shit because it makes all of the characters look like morons.

          I get that but at the same time the show consistently felt like it was about to break through to treating its characters seriously, and then it would just go back on it and turn into some wacky hijinks. It had a lot of really great moments that just feel so cheapened by the way the show went back to goofy wacky comedy sometimes, the end of season 5 in particular left a bad taste in my mouth.

    What a fricking wild world we live in where Drawn Together's jokes have more nuance than this flood of self-aware shit we've been plagued with.

        I didn't watch much Drawn Together but from what I remember the princess is a hardcore right winger racist and believes in stupid shit like 'christmas is under attack' or the english language is under attack by jive talking darkies

        Princess Clara is a stereotype of extremely racist white people, Foxxy Love is a stereotype of 70s blaxploitation characters. Foxxy often speaks in heavy ebonics and outdated slang.

    Todd is easily one of the worst character in the show.

    the scene you posted is a flashback to a wealthy dude in the 50s. his attitude was only slightly exaggerated given the time period.

    very utilitarian use of writing that’s designed to min-max amount of dialogue and clarity
    it seems jarring because it’s how children’s entertainment is written. It’s also how those late night talk shows are written with the whole formulaic approach to humor/education
    >“heh that was bad, but at least it wasn’t as bad as…”
    >the host’s speech slows down and their intonation raises in pitch
    >”Le Bad man”
    >laugh track plays to let the audience know what they SHOULD be feeling

    In which nations and cultures are men taught to manage a woman's emotions, exactly?

    And how is it done?

    >unsubtly explaining the joke but it's supposedly funny now because the character talked fast
    It hasn't been as cancerous or detrimental to adult cartoons as Family Guy, but Duckman has inspired some really hack character writing.

    Having just finished binging this show like a week ago, I actually like a lot of the dialogue in it. Sure a lot of the jokes and some lines just dont land for me, but the over-exaggerative manner characters talk is pretty cheeky imo. I can see how it can irk some people though but I don't regret watching this show at all
