    There are so many background jokes and one-liners and silly animals that the show's emotional depth caught me by surprise.

  • Neil Genzlinger

    Like some of television’s more out-there animated shows, this one is hard to describe beyond broad outlines, because it’s so odd, a combination of droll and naughty that seems improbable but works deliciously.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Willa Paskin

    BoJack is perhaps a little more clever than it is uproariously funny, but it is often very clever, and, moreover, well-tuned to the ludicrousness of the sort of low-level fame that surrounds BoJack.

    Slate Full Review
  • Kyle Anderson

    BoJack hits funny bones hardest when it loads up on background gags--for example, the fact every character has a terrible ringtone provides surprisingly rich humor as the six episodes advance. [22/29 Aug 2014, p.100]

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Hank Stuever

    A strange and somewhat delightful animated comedy.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marlow Stern

    Some jokes fall flat, a few scenarios seem uninspired, and Arnett’s horse does seem strikingly similar to his hilarious man-child/magician Gob in Arrested Development, but this bizarre dreamscape where humans and anthropomorphic animals commingle and cohabitate is filled with promise, providing a fun, delightfully gonzo take on Hollyweird.

    The Daily Beast Full Review
  • Erik Adams

    Even with its inventive setting and all-star cast, there’s not enough reason to stick with BoJack Horseman through the first six episodes.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    BoJack Horseman gets the particulars of late '80s sitcoms right and has a few scattershot funny moments but it's mostly not a laugh riot.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    Oddly enough, although the dialogue is rarely funny, the show is rife with background details suggesting how much potential is wasted here.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Watching a comedy about a has-been trying to gain relevance shouldn’t feel quite this dated.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mary McNamara

    In parodying the celebrity life, Bob-Waksberg only occasionally hits the mark.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    While the episodes improve slightly as the show progresses, it’s hard to get past the first few, including a premiere that violates the unwritten vomiting-scene rule of depicting more than one per episode.

    Variety Full Review
  • Lori Rackl

    [A] bizarre, Seth MacFarlane-like show that seems to have stemmed from a trippy night on ‘shrooms. In the words of Nancy Reagan, just say no.
