BoJack Horseman is an animated series on Netflix about a washed-up sitcom star, who happens to be an anthropomorphic horse. And as our own Liz Shannon Miller wrote of the beloved but challenging series, “Wow, what wacky adventures we’ve had with this cartoon horse, huh? So many shenanigans! Like the time he stole the D from the Hollywood sign, and the time he and his pals snuck into the Nixon Presidential Library to shoot a scene for a movie, and the time he nearly slept with the 17-year-old daughter of a longtime friend, and took a young woman on a bender that led to her dying of a heroin overdose, and traumatized his co-star by choking her on set while high out of his mind” … It’s BoJack Horseman!
Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg and starring Will Arnett, Aaron Paul, Amy Sedaris, and Paul F. Tompkins, BoJack is a sad, satirical, hilarious, and unexpected series, one that just ended its 6-season run on Netflix
Below, Paste TV Editor Allison Keene and Editor-in-Chief Josh Jackson explain why it’s worth watching this story that’s never quite a redemption tale, but is one of the sharpest commentaries on modern life today (plus, there is a bonus dog at the beginning!)
All 6 seasons of BoJack Horseman are currently available on Netflix.
