Jeez. I've never actually listened to the real thing, so I'd assumed it was a hold-music-ified version.

So, I am only on episode 4 now, but, after seeing episode 2, I get the feeling the Mr. Peanut Butter is a. Smarter than he appears, and b. A better friend to Bojack than he appears.

He coincidentally gets a bucket stuck on his head, humiliating him, just as Bojack starts loving up his image rehabilitation? It seems like PB realized what was happened, and trying to draw fire instead of Bojack saving him

Thats my opinion. I am so far liking this series, and want to hold on until I hit the midseaons the OP mentioned.

Yeah, individually its oddly structured for sure...

- Taken on their own episodes 1-4 are fairly standalone.
- Episodes 5 and 6 you see the arc start to take hold.
- Episodes 7-11are amazing with Downer Ending being the best of the season. Although I wish it had cut to black without the last line..
- In a way episode 12 feels a little out of place especially after Downer Ending, but...

...then you take a step back and its actually a fairly standard story arc and everything fits perfectly and you really can't skip any of it or move any of it out of place.

I'm glad that the intro and world building done in the first episode were strong enough to keep me watching the next 4 episodes.

Episode 12 gave us the perfect Vince Adultman C plot, and Bojack carried around his Golden Globe for the entire episode.

Also the unbelievable hilarious floor gag for the Halloween store.

Every time I think about Vincent Adultman or the floorless Halloween store I start laughing again.

And Mr. Peanut Butter is perfect with his tennis balls, hatred of the mailman, and how excited he gets when someone is at the door. I don't think I could handle it if anything bad happened to him in the second season.


edit: Also his doggie bed and the water dish on the nightstand.

There are so many good details. In Downer Ending, in the beginning when they're in the Penguin Office and it's raining, there are swamp monster coffee cups sitting under a drip in the ceiling.

Edit:

In the opening theme, the Holywoo/d sign changes between episode 6 and 7.

Aw man, no one's registered it. I was hoping for a little easter egg automated response maybe great email address for the character though.

I finished the season. Mixed feelings overall, but I'm really looking forward to season 2. The show has a lot of potential, and I think the writers are getting a handle on how to best capitalize on that potential. I actually thought "Downer Ending" was pretty rough around the edges, the drug trip in particular felt like something put together by someone who doesn't really understand drugs.

Maybe I'll do a write up in more depth when I have time, but overall I hope for the best for this show. Without getting into it, I just hope Zach Galifianakis (sounds like him?) gets to play something other than shouty obnoxious characters. Both the navy seal and the Penguin who runs Penguin sucked, as far as I'm concerned.

That was Patton Oswalt. And he did voice a bunch of other stuff, like Charlie Rose and one of Diane's brothers.

It really is extremely weird. I didn't know what to make of it for the first four episodes or so, but after that I was really into it. I think it's actually my favorite Netflix original now. All the little details, and the cast make it something pretty special. There are a lot of jokes that fell flat, but it's all worth it for things like Andrew Garfield being cast as loving Secretariat. Definitely hoping they do another season, and it keeps up the quality.

So I started this show and then stopped. Cause it was awful. So very, very awful. But I kept watching it because I had nothing else to do for background noise. The episode with David Boreanaz house is where it finally clicked and that episode was probably one of the funnier ones for me. I was kind of surprised at myself, because I ended up liking it overall.

I will say this though, I hate Bojack. I've never liked Will Arnett, I can't really explain why but most of his characters just come off as extremely obnoxious in the worst way. Episode 4 is when I think Diane came off as a really entertaining and likable character for me, but toward the end of the season she fell kinda flat and others picked up and really came together. But not Bojack. gently caress that guy.

I certainly felt that the beginning's humor was loving terrible. The show is really at its best when its just over the top absurd. Watching Bojack and Naomi Watts going at it was disgusting and hilarious. Also Naomi Watts lamenting about how she always gets stuck with deep, meaningful roles as Diane in front of the real Diane.

The early episodes become much better on second watch, if only because the show isn't as jarring and you get to pick up on things like this:

I absolutely love the last two episodes, though. The interview with Secretariat is both hilarious and soul-crushing: "...but sometimes I get sad. What do you do when you get sad? How do you not be sad? Sincerely, BoJack.

And we get my favorite line from Mr. Peanutbutter:

"The universe is a cruel, uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning. It's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense and, eventually, you'll be dead."

Well I just started watching this and wasn't really enjoying it until episode 4. Holy poo poo, how can you not hate BoJack really? Such a wretchedly pathetic, lonely, and selfish person that he'd go to incredible lengths to sabotage and ruin Toby's success just so he could have someone around to help him feel less alone. Wretched. Sick!

If that's where this show finds it's consistent voice by episode 6, I might be able to get into this.

That's the character's tragedy. The things he wants are normal and even prove him to have a decent heart, but instead of (for example) telling his friend that he doesn't want him to move out, he elaborately sabotages his chance of moving out in the first place.

He only knows how to approach situations in a negative manner.

I was super disappointed with the first episode and didn't really have any interest in giving it another chance until my friend who smokes way more weed than I do got me to keep watching it. The episode with Sarah Lynn convinced me that it was going to be less awful than that Family Guy bullshit in the first episode where he threw up cotton candy for like three minutes led me to believe, and I ended up marathoning the last six episodes with my girlfriend last night. It's not the Adult Swim stoner comedy I was expecting at all, but after the second half of the season I'm super hype that it's going to get at least another season to develop even after the lovely reviews.

I think they must have known from the very beginning that this was not going to be loved by the masses. They made a fairly niche product, that has all of the pieces to form a bit of a cult following and gain some internet cred.

I really think Netflix is following the tomato sauce strategy of making lots of different kinds, so that everyone will be able to find something they like, rather than trying to make one tomato sauce that everybody will like (which, even if they did make such a thing, by internet law, it would be instantly classified as "poo poo" regardless of its actual quality, making the entire exercise futile).

My favorite part of this show was that there are zero actual animals in this world. I understood immediately that we had humanoid dogs and horses, but then we started getting crayfish, chameleons, and mosquitoes.

My favorite sringle part of the show was Stephen Colbert's "fascinating" when confronted with Jerry Maguire facts. Did he think that was the real Bojack? Did he know it was cardboard cut out, but responded politely anyway? The character was so simultaneously alert yet oblivious that we just can't know.

I just finished the season. It took me a couple days to get up to episode 4, but after that I marathoned right up to the finale.

If anyone is still on the fence over the early episodes, just watch a couple more.

Dear Bojack,

I like funny people and I have funny friends, that's why I like you Bojack.
I have a question.
Sometimes my friends tell a joke but I don't get it and they keep talking but I didn't have a chance to tell them that I didn't understand the joke. I didn't laugh so they should have known to check and make sure that I got it, right? What should I do when this happens?

Thanks for answering my question,

You should be nicer to Vincent Adultman. He's probably got a lot of good Business contacts at the Company. I bet he's a really cool guy when he's not too busy with Transactions.

dear arbitrary. i have the opposite problem. sometimes i tell jokes and people dont realize theyre jokes and dont laugh. having been on the other side of this I can assure you: you have to laugh at it anyway. just think about it harder or ask them to explain it. one of my favorite jokes had to be exlpained to me. it goes like this: a horse a dog and a turtle walk into a bar. the turltle is going reeeeeeeal slow. so the bartedner says “hey turlte, why are you going so slooooooooooooooooooooo. Also, it’s a good practice to say “Get It?” following joke delivery.
Sincerely,
BJ

Also Mr. Peanutbutter had some strong opinions on Styx!

Took more a few to click with that one, I'll admit it.

Nobody likes you.
Everybody hates you.
You're gonna lose.

Smile, you fuck.


I don't know if this is worth sharing or even worth being privately amused by, but Keith Olbermann's Twittter icon is a shot of Tom Jumbo-Grumbo.



I guess it's just cool to see him so into this minor role that satirizes him, even if it's mild at best.
