True Dat BoJack

Even the NYT and Slate get BoJack as do AV ClubVulture and TIFF. Let’s hope the writing doesn’t go soft, PC or didactic (sadly it did go PC and didactic in a big way thereby cheapening the artistry). Peter Singer might well have approved except for the fact that the animals with higher cognitive ability (i.e. the fully anthropomorphized) treat the lower ones (such as battery chickens) well as . . . food. The opening and closing music is very well-chosen. In effect, BoJack is a descendant of Gary Larson as is Shaun the Sheep.


My favorite episode — season 1:11 — written by Kate Purdy and directed by Amy Winfrey.
