Why Netflix’s BoJack Horseman Is A Show You Should Be Watching

by

Bojack Horseman is a Netflix original adult animated series, that follows the life of a horse, BoJack. BoJack is a washed-up actor from a 90’s sitcom, struggling to revamp his career in Hollywood. In this animated alternate universe, animals and humans live side by side and even work alongside each other in Hollywood. Though it’s animation, the problems, the characters, and even the foul language are very much real.

With five critically acclaimed seasons under its belt, it has built a cult-like following with a diverse audience and universal praise for tackling serious topics. Yes, I know what you’re thinking, an animated series? for adults? serious topics?

BoJack Horseman is more than what you think and it’s a show you should be watching. Here are three reasons why:

  1. The Flawed Characters Are Intensely Relatable  Many of the (well deserved) praise BoJack Horseman receives derives from the compassionate portrayal of mental illness. Furthermore, none of the characters on screen are one dimensional. There is no perfect hero or obvious evil villain. There is no emotional redemption arc at the end of the season that wipes away a character’s previous mistakes. The supporting cast has many faults and we love it that way because we see portions of ourselves in each of them.
  1. Guest Appearances From Your Favorite Hollywood Stars! BoJack Horseman does take place in Hollywood so it only makes sense the show is littered with hilarious celebrity cameos! Season One’s guest list included Stephen Colbert, Olivia Wilde, and Naomi Watts. As the series continued, the stars only got bigger. In the most recent season, there is a hilarious cameo from Mr. Paul McCartney himself, alongside Felicity Huffman, Zach Braff, and Daniel Radcliffe. These celebrities stop by to play exaggerated versions of themselves proving that they too can get in on the joke!
  1. It’s a Comedy With Heart and Smarts The premise of the series might sound far fetched and the visuals of talking animals on screen might seem childish to some, but the show is far from childish. It has been tackling dark themes so well that many have awarded it the title of “The Funniest, Saddest Show”. Before clicking play, none of us would’ve thought that a series with a talking horse would tackle subjects such as mass shootings, women’s rights, addiction, or depression. But it has done just that. Sprinkled in between an amazing theme song and jokes about celebrities, BoJack Horseman leaves its viewers with a new look on life and a deeper look within themselves.

Finn Wolfhard from ‘Stranger Things’ Appears on ‘Kimmel’ with his Band Calpurnia

by

Maybe you didn’t know that Finn Wolfhard had other artistic outlets besides acting in “Stranger Things.” But Wolfhard doesn’t just act! He sings and plays rhythm guitar in his indie-rock band, Calpurnia. Calpurnia just released their debut EP, ‘Scout,’ this June. If you didn’t catch July 23rd’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” then you missed Calpurnia’s TV debut. In an article by NME, Finn discussed his band, the fans, and how “Stranger Things” impacts his musical pursuits.

What Finn Wolfhard Has to Say About Calpurnia and “Stranger Things”

15-year-old Finn Wolfhard from ‘Stranger Things’ told NME about his band Calpurnia’s experiences so far. Wolfhard says that he and his bandmates have made peace with the fact that most of Calpurnia’s current fan-base are also fans of the hit Netflix original “Stranger Things.” The loved Sci-Fi series is undoubtedly great for the band’s notoriety. However, Wolfhard makes it clear that he wants Calpurnia’s music to be a separate entity, too. Finn recalls shutting a fan down “in a nice way” at a show in Toronto: “They said something like, ‘I love Stranger Things’ and I was like, ‘Cool man, I also like music, which is what’s happening right now.’”  Props to the young actor-musician for knowing the importance of keeping artistic endeavors separate. Staying true to both of his career aspirations, Wolfhard is very wise for his age. Any musician wants their fans to appreciate their music for their music, just like any actor wants their craft to be taken seriously.
