- Bojack Horseman:
BoJack Horseman is an ex-Hollywood star who’s trying to win his audience back and become relevant as a celebrity again. BoJack Horseman can best be described as a comedy-drama. And the main themes are depression, fame, and the endless search for identity. Be ready for some bittersweet humor, and disarmingly honest feelings. BoJack Horseman and other animals with human traits live side-by-side with human characters of the show, yet this world isn’t that different from the one we live in. This oddball dark dramedy from Netflix features Will Arnett as a self-loathing alcoholic horse in Hollywood dealing with depression after a past role on a popular ’90s sitcom gave him a feast of fleeting fame.
