A horse with depression

Bojack Horseman is such a depressing show, but I find it strangely validating to hear cartoon characters describe how I feel with such precision. The writing in this show is superb, always twisting away from obvious jokes into existential angst. 90 more words

Nikita reblogged this on Nikita Talks Depression and commented:

The show Bojack Horseman is about a depressed horse and washed-up actor named Bojack Horseman, and it is hilarious as hell. Wordpress user noimnotok describes it as "depressing" but with superb writing; I agree that the writing is superb but have found it to be the opposite of depressing for the same reason that he finds it depressing: Bojack is so relatable. My friend Tiffany who has also struggled with depression introduced the show to me about three months ago, and every episode is just smart, real, and funny. Maybe the reason I don't find the show depressing is I haven't watched it by myself yet; things tend to be more light-hearted when I can voice my reactions aloud and get immediate feedback, I guess. I also kind of stopped watching television regularly back in 2009, so unless I'm on holiday or someone goes, "Let's watch a TV show," I'm not going to open Netflix and watch this. Thus, I've only watched maybe four episodes so far. But I highly recommend this show. It's awesome!
