BoJack Horseman Season 1

While we are talking about character or plot driven stories we have to talk about another show that helped me make breakthroughs in therapy, BoJack Horseman. When we talk about shows that deal with mental health this absolutely has to be on the list. A comedy that confronts every personal struggle you’ve ever had in a way that is fun but gut wrenching. BoJack Horseman is one of the rawest, most powerful pieces of media that exists and I saw this with no hyperbole. It changed my life.

So here we go…

Now this is a show I have said has a lot in common with Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, a show that is also being covered in this series. And while mental health is one of the reasons that I connect the two shows, there are so many other reasons they have the same vibe. So stay tuned for another video where I run down all the similarities in the shows. I promise it’ll be more then just the fact Rachel Bloom was on both of them.

The first season finale opens with BoJack Horseman’s hero Secretariat committing suicide. And it ends with BoJack getting a role playing him in a movie about his life which clearly sends him into a kind of existential crisis.
