'BoJack Horseman' fan recap: 'Fish Out Of Water'

Season 3 | Episode 4 | “Fish Out Of Water” | Aired Jul 22, 2016

BoJack Horseman continues his promotional efforts to get Secretariat some good publicity in the hope of winning an Oscar. BoJack takes an underwater adventure to the Pacific Ocean Film Festival (POFF) for the Secretariat premiere, but has second thoughts when he finds out Kelsey Jennings is going to be in attendance.

He has second thoughts because he never apologized to Kelsey for getting her fired from the movie after he escaped to L.A. at the end of season 2. BoJack is met with feelings of guilt, anxiety, and fear as he confronts his emotions and takes inventory of the damage he’s done to other people. BoJack tries to come up with the right words to apologize to Kelsey but he’s underwater and can’t speak. Writing a letter to Kelsey proves unsuccessful when she leaves the Film Festival and BoJack gets separated from her by a school of fish trying to board a bus.

'BoJack Horseman' fan recap: 'BoJack Kills'

Season 3 | Episode 3 | “BoJack Kills” | Aired Jul 22

BoJack Horseman is a dark comedy, but as dark as the Netflix Original series is, viewers haven’t seen anything as dark as murder until “BoJack Kills.”

In this episode, BoJack and Diane find a dead whale named Nadia floating in the pool of BoJack’s old collaborator Mr. Cuddlywhiskers, and BoJack is arrested as the prime suspect. Diane was avoiding BoJack and told him she’d like to keep their relationship professional, but they find themselves entangled in a murder mystery — and someone’s framing BoJack. Diane discovers that Nadia’s cell phone had a text message that said, “BoJack is trying to kill me.”

'BoJack Horseman' fan react: Flashback to 2007

Season 3 | Episode 2 | “The BoJack Horseman Show” | Aired Jul 25–29

BoJack Horseman gives viewers a flashback episode with season three’s second episode, which sees the former star of Horsin’ Around trying to make himself over with a new project.

The episode opens with BoJack in bed with Princess Carolyn, who is cautious about making this a recurring thing. She’s working as a secretary for the company she will later become an agent with and is trying to convince BoJack to get back to work instead of sitting around and getting drunk at home all day.

After BoJack’s agent and Princess Carolyn’s boss, Marv, rejects the scripts she read (There Will Be Blood, No Country for Old Men) she recommends BoJack for a project from award-winning writer Cuddlywhiskers (Jeffrey Wright) called Mitch’s Life. Marv laughs it off because he doesn’t think he’ll work, which motivates Princess Carolyn to trick him into taking a meeting after giving him four Four Lokos.

'BoJack Horseman' character analysis: Is BoJack likeable?

BoJack Horseman (Will Arnett) has done some despicable things over the course of three seasons of the Netflix Original series of the same name, but is he entirely to blame for his behavior, or is he a victim of a terrible childhood?

Spoiler Alert: The following contains spoilers from the first three seasons of BoJack Horseman.

After 36 episodes, the viewer has seen BoJack continue to redefine rock bottom as he struggles with depression, addiction, a jaded sense of the world, and perceptions of how he’s portrayed. Maybe it’s not all his fault though, as he was shown zero love and affection from his mother and father as a child. His mother is verbally abusive and tells him he was born broken, and nothing he did was ever good enough for his father.

BoJack Horseman season 3 premiere fan react: BoJack's Oscar campaign

BoJack Horseman returned to Netflix with 12 all-new episodes on July 22 for its third season, which sees BoJack (Will Arnett) campaigning for an Oscar for his work on Secretariat.

Despite leaving production before the movie was finished when he escaped from Los Angeles at the end of the second season, BoJack is in the running for an Oscar, even though he was replaced by digital effects after quitting. Princess Carolyn (Amy Sedaris) and BoJack’s publicist Ana Spanakopita (Angela Basset) set him off on a press tour in New York City before an advanced screening of the movie.

Before the screening, BoJack meets with Jill Pill (Mara Wilson) who he met during The BoJack Horseman Show after working on Horsin’ Around. She pitches a challenging project for BoJack, but he’s not interested because he doesn’t do challenging things. He mentions he wants to leave a legacy behind so people remember his name. He wants to win the Oscar because he thinks it’ll give his life meaning.

The 5 best 'BoJack Horseman' episodes to watch before season 3

The third season of the Netflix Original series BoJack Horseman will be back with all-new episodes on July 25.

Raphael Bob-Waksberg created BoJack Horseman, and the series stars Will Arnett as the title character, a former sitcom star from the ’80s who has drifted into irrelevance and self-despair.

BoJack is hopeful of reviving his career with the release of his memoir, written by Diane Nguyen (Alison Brie). He quickly develops feelings for her, but she’s in a relationship with his rival Mr. Peanutbutter (Paul F. Tompkins), but BoJack simply can’t help but make things awkward and uncomfortable. BoJack’s roommate Todd (Aaron Paul), his agent, and his on-again/off-again girlfriend Princess Caroline (Amy Sedaris) add to the supporting cast whose lives revolve around the cynical, depressed, alcoholic, and needy BoJack.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out BoJack Horseman yet and want to get caught up with the animated series, here are the five best episodes so far that you should consider required viewing before the third season arrives.

'BoJack Horseman' recap: A fitting finale

Season 1 | Episode 12 | “Later” | Released Aug 22, 2014

With 11 funny, sad, and meaningful episodes now struck from the Netflix queue, the season finale of BoJack Horseman has the tough task of tying it all together. Luckily, it does so beautifully.

We open in 1973, as Secretariat is doing an interview on The Dick Cavett Show. After some banter, Dick reads a heartwarming letter from a nine-year-old BoJack. BoJack asks Secretariat if he ever gets sad, and if he does, how he fixes his case of the grumpies. Secretariat stares into the camera and tells BoJack to keep moving forward. People will try to slow him down, but if you keep your eyes on the prize, nothing will stand in your way.Read More

'BoJack Horseman' recap: BoJack's drugged-out trip

Season 1 | Episode 11 | “Downer Ending” | Released Aug 22, 2014

With Diane canned and the world aware of BoJack’s deepest, darkest secrets, episode 10 left off with a surprising cliffhanger. But in episode 11, we learn that we haven’t seen anything yet. Just give our favorite horse some pills and watch the emotional fireworks fly.

We open with Diane and BoJack holding another meeting with Petey Penguin in the crumbling publishing house. The publisher confirms to BoJack what Diane tried to tell him in the last episode: People are gravitating to Diane’s real BoJack, not his fake mental image. When he hears the book must be in by the end of the week, BoJack’s ego takes hold. After blasting Diane’s profession and personality, he promises to write a new version of it himself. Diane leaves, upset, and the publisher prays he’ll have something to sell before the bank repossesses the building.Read More

'BoJack Horseman' recap: On the set with Naomi Watts and Wallace Shawn

Season 1 | Episode 10 | “One Trick Pony” | Released Aug 22, 2014

Episode 9 of BoJack Horseman settled some scores and set things right. Diane is newly married, Todd has a new gig, and BoJack is still BoJack. With episode 10, things go one step further as BoJack preps for his new feature film.

We open with an Excess Hollywoo (yes, that’s spelled correctly) exposé on BoJack’s new movie about Mr. Peanutbutter’s stolen D. Mr. Peanutbutter tells the host he’s delighted to be the film’s inspiration, but BoJack is still bitter about losing credit for his scheme. When talking to Carolyn, he even offered to play himself, but the role had already been filled by Wallace Shawn (playing himself). Back on the interview, BoJack says he’s “delighted to be there.”Read More

'BoJack Horseman' recap: Love, sabatoge, and Margo Martindale

Season 1 | Episode 9 | “Horse Majeure” | Released Aug 22, 2014

After an emotional episode of old friends and ’80s references, episode 9 continues examining BoJack, as Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter plan their wedding.

The show opens right where episode 8 left off. Uncomfortable after the attempted kiss, BoJack and Diane awkwardly agree they’re friends only. Besides, Diane is engaged, and it would be easier to pretend nothing happened. Diane abruptly jumps out of the car to walk the final three miles home.Read More
