It is generally agreed upon that we are living in a golden age of small screen programs. After the desolation that TV was in the 90's and 00's, we have more options to view solid shows in everything from comedies to dramas. Speaking of the 90's and comedy, let me talk about Netflix's animated series about Bojack Horseman, a washed-up Hollywood actor trying to reclaim the stardom he had during his one hit in the '90s. And, oh, yeah, he happens to be a talking horse.
This is Bojack Horseman, and this is his show
Premiering last August as a Netflix original and just releasing its 2nd season, Bojack Horseman is set in modern day in an anthropomorphic world. Bojack Horseman, voiced by Will Arnett of Arrested Development fame, believes a book of his memoirs will be his last chance to become famous again. The only problem is he is narcissistic, selfish, lazy, and an alcoholic. Bojack's publisher, Penguin*, tired of Bojack's constant delays and on the brink of bankruptcy, hire a ghostwriter for him. This sets the stage for this funny and at times very dark show.
