Who would have guessed that the closest spiritual successor to Mad Men would come in the form of a half-hour cartoon about a washed-up sitcom star who just happens to be a horse? Netflix’s Bojack Horseman was a little shaky in the early going, but it hit its funny-sad stride around the middle of its first season, and by its second season was a legitimate contender for one of the best shows on television.
So will Bojack Horseman keep up the good work in season 3, or will it self-destruct just like its equine star? Watch the first Bojack Horseman season 3 trailer and see for yourself. The returning voice cast includes Will Arnett, Amy Sedaris, Alison Brie, Aaron Paul, and Paul F. Tompkins. Read More »

The Netflix series BoJack Horseman has a goofy comic concept: Will Arnett voices a drunk, washed-up actor who is also a horse. And while the show’s first season was often pretty goofy, it also turned out to be a brutally funny and frequently very dark evisceration of celebrity culture, media, and many other aspects of modern life. It also works well as a full season of interconnected stories — the show isn’t just a string of jokes, but a character piece that builds some involving arcs.
Now there’s a trailer for the second season. Naturally it focuses more on quick jokes than any deeper stuff, but it’s still great. Check out the BoJack Horseman S2 trailer below. Read More »
Here’s the trailer for the first Netflix original animated series, BoJack Horseman. The show features Will Arnett as the voice of the title character, a horse and former sitcom star who is now washed up and dealing with the downside of fame. OK, mild fame. BoJack is drinking himself into a pit to escape his problems, and trying to deal with human friend Todd (Aaron Paul), feline agent and Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris), and his human girlfriend (or perhaps ex-girlfriend) voiced by Alison Brie.
The show debuts on August 22; watch the BoJack Horseman trailer here now. Read More »
