Binged the whole thing in a weekend when the second season came out. Fantastic show, I think my favourite character is JD Salinger.

I did not think about the connection between Achewood and Bojack, but definitely couldn't agree more that if you like one, you'll love the other.

This is such a great show. I'm so pleased with Bojack's character. So many television, and especially cartoon, characters can easily be two-dimensional, but they've developed a character that is somehow a pastiche and yet completely unpredictable at the same time. That balance and ability to surprise is what I love so very much.

I'll never forgive them for making me have an emotional connection to a Tegan and Sara song, though.

It's tremendous viewing. Not sure I'd agree the first few episodes were that bad. It starts slow, for sure, but so do a lot of shows. Once you hit the mid-point it's firing on nearly all cylinders (and you'll be blown away by season two, it's even better).

I need to read Achewood but I don't want to do it online. Surely it's been put into a book?

The last three people to post in here are all huge Achewood fans, so yeah.

The use of Wild Horses was both an extremely lazy pun and very appropriate.

If I never see the premiere of Bojack again, I'll be perfectly fine with that, BUT no, it's not that bad. I've loved every other episode to varying degrees, however. I think episode 6 was the other week one.

Despite being vol. 2, this is probably the best starting point in print:

I wish there were more books of Achewood. I'd probably own them all.

God, episode 11 of Bojack would fit RIGHT in with the Hencho en Mexico plot from Achewood.

I broke a sacred rule of marriage and binge watched way too much of this show without Ashley tonight. Still have four episodes to go, but I like the direction it's heading in.

 
To be honest, I'm preferring the end of season 1 to most of what I've seen from season 2, though Let's Find Out, which is where I stopped, is one of the best episodes of the whole series. Perfect mix of humor and revelatory drama. The ending was so fucking dark but I was applauding anyway.

My biggest problem with this season has actually been the stark lack of Bojack. There is a larger supporting cast with Wanda around and while I do enjoy her character a great deal, I don't feel she's added as much to the tension of the show as Herb did. It seems like less work is being put into exploring Bojack's character after dedicating so much (very valuable) time to it over the second half of season 1. The Secretariat movie also hasn't contributed as much as I had hoped.

That said, I think the laughs are coming more naturally than ever before. There were a lot of cringeworthy jokes when the show first started, but those have virtually disappeared in favor of fluid timing and a large repertoire of animal jokes to draw from that usually land. I still think it's a great show. Certainly, all 8 episodes I've watched are head and shoulders above the first 3-4 episodes of the show. This season is far more consistently enjoyable. I've just had my heart broken a little less often this time around.

Best joke of the season so far: the cell phones falling in love. I was in tears. Todd is getting just the right amount of screen time this season.

The Secretariat plot was a bit of a letdown in the end, I agree. I was hoping for it to be a moment of triumph for Bojack but it wasn't to be.

Completely agreed with Bonnie, BTW, that JD Salinger was a revelation. He's awesome. I hope he sticks around for the remaining four episodes because megalomaniacal "dead" authors need to feature in comedies more often.

The finale was incredibly rushed, but Avant Gardener + the jogger from every episode of the show imparting wisdom made it all worthwhile. What a great way to end the season. The Mr Peanutbutter/Diane split screen was also wonderful. Basically the bookends were A+ and the rest of the episode was a solid B.

The penultimate episode on the other hand was just...wow. I was legitimately scared as Charlotte walked over to the door of the boat to find the inevitable. All I could feel was dread for that entire scene. The episode is top notch all the same. That one and Let's Find Out were the real gems of the season.
