'BoJack Horseman' creator breaks down the year's best episode of television

24 July 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman, one of the very best shows on television, returned for a wonderful — and, somehow, darker than ever — third season on Friday, and Netflix ordered a fourth season later that day. I'll have an episode-by-episode breakdown later this week, but I'm first pleased to bring you this long conversation with BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg. (Note: We did this a week and a half ago, prior to the renewal announcement, so his last answer refers to the show's fate being up in the air, even as he talks about plans for what he wants to do next with it.) Originally, I had intended to only ask questions about the season's remarkable fourth installment — one of the best episodes of TV I've seen all year — a largely dialogue-free installment set underwater, where BoJack's attempt to promote Secretariat at a film festival on the ocean floor goes awry. But then I realized »

‘BoJack Horseman’ Eviscerates SeaWorld With Killer (Whale) Strip Club Sequence

22 July 2016 1:59 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

[Editor’s Note: “BoJack Horseman” Season 3 is a feat of storytelling on both a serialized and episodic level. To honor the impressive accomplishment, IndieWire will be reviewing all 12 episodes over the next few weeks. Below, we delve into Episodes 2 & 3.]

“What are you talking about? It’s just whales!”

The idea of seeing zoos as prisons is nothing new, but Raphael Bob-Waksberg took the concept a step further in “BoJack Kills,” the third episode of “BoJack Horseman” Season 3. In light of the allegations made against SeaWorld in the wake of “Blackfish,” the opening moments of Episode 3 obliterated all other interpretations, efficiently and effectively establishing how parents paying for their children to watch abused animals perform is pretty damn similar to grown men throwing dollar bills for grown women to scoop up from their knees.

“Families come together to admire the fine female form of the majestic killer whale. It’s educational!”

“You and your little ones are going to get moist!”

“Bring your pre-pubescent daughters who are just beginning to be cognizant of a woman’s role in the world. They won’t internalize deeply problematic notions about the commodification »

Why you should be watching the great 'BoJack Horseman'

21 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman is one of the very best shows on television. It was in its first two seasons (even if it took me a while to realize that in the first), and it still is in its third, which Netflix debuts tomorrow. I burned through all 12 episodes of the new season over a couple of days, loving all of them, yet also feeling at a bit of a loss for what to write in a traditional advance review of the series. BoJack Horseman is gonna BoJack Horseman at this point, and while the show has become more narratively and technically adventurous in some ways — the new season's fourth episode, set at a film festival on the ocean floor, is a delight in both ways — it's still fundamentally the same series it's always been: an improbable blend of cartoon absurdity and profound melancholy that makes it a great comedy and drama at the same time. »

Patrick Wilson Wishes Jessica Biel Were Dead In Trailer For ‘A Kind Of Murder’

Alfred Hitchcock long had a fascination with the fine line between wishing someone dead and doing the deed (“Rope,” “Strangers On A Train“) and that vibe gets a workout in the ’50s-set “A Kind Of Murder.” Directed by Andy Goddard, starring Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Haley Bennett, Vincent Kartheiser, and Eddie Marsan, and based on […]

Crazy About Tiffany’s review – blue-chip, high-end promo

23 June 2016 2:00 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

No 2016 release will be more out of step with the times than this slick documentary about the Manhattan jeweller

This is effectively a 90-minute ad for a superstore: it could have been Wild About Wilko, were that estimable outlet shipping shiny stones to the 1% instead of marked-down scourers to the rest of us. Inevitably, it’s a blue-chip, high-end promo, recruiting Jessica Biel and Baz Luhrmann to gush about the Manhattan jewellers’ elaborate brooches. Still, amid its slick melding of sparkly bits from 2009’s Bride Wars, relentless Moon River and input from solitary hitmakers Deep Blue Something, little is allowed to puncture the prevailing air of self-congratulation for enabling two centuries of conspicuous consumption. No 2016 release will be further out of step with the times.

Justin Timberlake Is Overshadowed by Jamala of Ukraine--and Controversy!--at the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest

14 May 2016 4:52 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

The unthinkable has happened. Justin Timberlake has been out-performed and overshadowed. The wildly successful hitmaker had a perfectly fine outing at the grand finale of the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, held tonight at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden. And while the contestants may have had the support of entire governments behind them, Timberlake also had his biggest fan with him in Sweden: Jessica Biel was spotted watching him rehearse on Friday. But the annual competition, know for its over-the-top costumes, melodramatic (or kooky) performances, its politics and fierce patriotism from the participating nations, is about so much more than a fancy headliner. Unfortunately this year, »
