BoJack Horseman will catch you by surprise, as behind its quirky animation and hilarious one-liners, it carries emotional depth.

This unique comedy features BoJack Horseman, your average washed-up 90’s sitcom star. In his rise and fall, BoJack has spiralled into a self-destructive lifestyle, wrought with addictions and unhealthy obsessions.

The show’s dark tones are sprinkled with hilarious comic relief, a breather between tense situations and subjects. BoJack Horseman pokes fun at its characters, often making puns at the expense of its anthropomorphic animal cast and pointing out the hilarity in every-day instances.

You often tend to forget throughout the show that the characters are animals. When you’re reminded by a dog’s interest in the show Bones for completely the wrong reasons, or a cat’s refusal to date a mouse, you can’t help but chuckle.

BoJack Horseman is an accurate representation of depression and coping, the side of fame some of us don’t see, but a side of life that many of us have experienced. But, the show is not all doom and gloom. You watch BoJack Horseman for the comedy, the animation, and because you’re rooting for BoJack.

It’s a unique and interesting TV show, and I’d highly recommend giving it a watch.
