Adult Swim delivers yet again. Hopefully they can shore up a good relationship, they're losing all their Fox syndication and need a strong stable.

Is that really true? If adult swim survives as a programming block itíll be much better when half of its lineup isnít Seth McFarlane reruns.


Edit: woah Tuva and Bertie, thatís great news. That show clearly deserved a second season.

Since you're asking, the first half was just rubbish; far too many ideas crammed into one space with no real payoff. For example, what did that old fashioned pig add, like at all?

Then you've got the second to last episode, which had to opportunity to almost redeem it all with some excellent dialogue, but then so many dumb TV fakeouts just ruin it. Then the final episode feels like a napkin sketch for the next season, but this time more compressed than ever, only to end on an extremely drawn out conclusion to a plot point that was written on the wall years ago (Bojack and Diane aren't a good match!!). If the show had just ended on the 2nd to last episode it would have at least been poignant.

You mean the jovial grim reaper trailing just a half-step behind Bojack (who thought his past was behind him) having gotten closer with every episode? Sorry if that did nothing for you.

And that jovial grim reaper turned the second interview against Bojack. If she hadn't been involved, it would have been another softball no consequence interview, and Bojack's public image would have been further rehabilitated.

Instead, it ruined him.

Yeah, no impact at all from that character, you nailed it Pararoid.

If even half of that characters time on screen, in this extremely crammed season, was dedicated to those plot points then I wouldn't have a particular complaint.

tuca and bertie was one of my favorite things i've seen in a while and it's assumed cancellation hurt me in a way that i didn't think media could anymore. i'm happy it's back, i hope they don't lose too much in the transition to adult swim

I really doubt Hannawalt would stymie her own creative vision that much just to get back on air. Tuca and Bertie without the building boobies and 8 ft tall titty-plants wouldnít be Tuca & Bertie.

There's an enormous gulf between "investigative journalists moved the plot along" and "the investigate journalists were fun characters to spend huge chunks of time with." I love this show but those scenes were dreadful on the first watch and I haven't revisited the last season in part because I have no interest sitting through them again.

Season was good for me otherwise, though.

the jarring discontinuity between the horrible things bojack had both done and had coming to him and this pair of 40s screwball comedy journalists was extremely good. that end stretch is pretty rough otherwise, you need some levity - plus them never getting together fit the theme of life being unlike fiction conventions.

i loved the season a lot but i think i liked the back half more than the front.

I think the season works best as a whole, splitting it was an unfortunate necessity to get every episode made. There's definitely a building story in the first half and some parts that feel like conclusions, but the real payoff of the season is entirely in the back half.

Had a thing about this half written but got distracted, this is it. It's a neat and very literal on-the-pig-nose metaphor for a not-actually-harmless, cheeky, and fun Hollywoo past catching up to him with actual consequences.

I'm sure there fact that it was Paget Brewster had something to do with it too. She was basically a more energetic Sadie Doyle.

Yeah I just rewatched it before the final season but a full rewatch knowing the consequences of everyoneís actions would be weird.

Itíll be neat to see if anything seeded in S1 gets really trippy. RBW and Lisa Hannawaltís team are so smart, holy moley.

Also I know this show cast a bunch of amazing women but shout out Lisa Kudrow she did such an amazing job, Bojackís best partner by far.
