11 times BoJack Horseman was unexpectedly the deepest show on TV

“You know, it’s funny; when you look at someone through rose-colored glasses, all the red flags just look like flags.”

BOJACK HORSEMAN RETURNS to Irish Netflix this day next week for its fourth season – and anyone that has watched it knows that it goes deeper than your average knockabout animated comedy.

1. Yes, yes, it’s about a talking horse who’s also a millionaire – but the character of Bojack is a brutally honest portrayal of depression and despair
