There is so much subtlety, sight gags, self references and series continuity that makes a lot of shows seem bland to the nerd side of me..
For every depressing moment, there is an equal moment of hilarity that simply appeals to me a lot more than any other show.
For every sight gag that only one in a million people would ever notice, there's a stupid pun, or parody etc.
This has fast grown on me to become one of my favorite shows, because it is so different in structure and character.
I end every season a fucking wreck. Everyone is hyped for season four, but I'm over here patiently waiting as I can't stand the week long depression I get after finishing it.
I don't end it a wreck.. because for every time there is a massively depressing moment (Bojack putting the foot down in the car, closing eyes and letting go of the steering wheel) there is a laugh that counters it amazingly (Mr. Peanut butter's: "Spaghetti or not, here I come"... That punchline took AN ENTIRE season to materialise)
I would probably feel MUCH different about it if I was watching it weekly, instead of all at once.. I will probably try to space season 4 out, because there is SO MUCH to take in each episode..
Spoiler alert for those who haven't seen the end of season 3 and would like to:One thing that I particularly like is the opening credits/titles. and how it always changes to reflect what is happening in the show..
My heart broke in the finale of season 3 to see Sarah Lynn was absent from Bojack's party after she had died.. That was TOO MUCH, MAN And I was almost in tears before I even got to the end..
For those who haven't seen it (which I hope everyone has) Some of the guest stars are amazing:
Kristen Schaal. Flight of the Conchords, Bob's Burgers.
Aisha Tyler. Archer, Friends, The Boondocks.
Diedrich Bader. Office Space, The Drew Carey Show.
Henry Winkler. EYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
Judy Greer. Archer, Arrested Development.
Everyone should watch it.. It is hilariously depressing.. fell of my chair when I heard "Get Dat Fetus Kill Dat Fetus Brrap Brrap pew pew"
The English language had deteriorated into a hybrid of hillbilly, valleygirl, inner-city slang and various grunts. Joe was able to understand them, but when he spoke in an ordinary voice he sounded pompous and faggy to them.
