How To Watch Party Down And 2 More Great Shows That Just Started Streaming
BoJack Horseman came out last Friday, but we hadn’t started this column yet, so we’re taking liberties. Created by Raphael Bob-Waksberg (The Exquisite Corpse Project), BoJack Horseman is an often scathingly hilarious look at a former TV star who has been washed up by wave after wave of liquor and beer, who also happens to be a horse voiced by Will Arnett. (He’s essentially playing “the Will Arnett role” here, but that never gets old for me.) BoJack's life is filled with a neverending line of comedian guest stars that sprinkle this animal pun-filled universe with consistently ridiculous performances.
BoJack, who is still quite wealthy from his stint as the father of three human children in the cornball 1980s sitcom Horsin’ Around, is intent on reclaiming his spot in pop culture with an autobiography, helped along by ghostwriter Diane (Allison Brie). There are weird romantic feelings, but she’s in a relationship with BoJack’s friendly nemesis, Mr. Peanutbutter (Paul F. Tompkins), a blissfully optimistic dog whose former sitcom was a Horsin’ Around ripoff. Amy Sedaris plays Princess Carolyn, BoJack's hard-working agent and occasional sex partner, while Aaron Paul plays his not-all-there roommate Todd. Come for the cheeky jokes about fame and Hollywood, and stay for one of the most bizarre and introspective drug sequences in all of fiction. It’s a-neigh-zing.
All 12 episodes of BoJack Horseman are currently available on Netflix Instant.
