On Watching BoJack Horseman

On Watching BoJack Horseman

I started season three of BoJack Horseman today. With plot points like, “Todd and Mr. Peanut Butter get sprayed by a skunk,” and anthropomorphic animals for main characters, you might not suspect that this is a show about what it means to live a good life, achieve personal happiness, and the fear of never being able to do both. But it is very much about that. (Plus, animals with funny names.)

Sometimes you have to take responsibility for your happiness.

It takes a long time to realize how truly miserable you are,
even longer to see it doesn’t have to be that way.
