Bojack Horseman First Look

I reviewed the second season of Bojack Horseman for the streaming reviews site

The first few episodes of BoJack Horseman Season 1 started poorly. The title character is a washed-up ex-sitcom star, who starts to work on his memoirs with a spiky writer, all while trying to salvage his career. The jokes were fine but nothing to recommend it in a TV world saturated with comedy, and it felt a little bit obvious and cheap. The arrested development, buffoonish hero whose arrogance is matched only by his stupidity is a comedy staple, as seen in… well, almost every TV comedy of the last 20 years. The faded star premise was an interesting one, but you would be forgiven for giving up after a couple of episodes. Then, something special happened for those who persisted.
