'BoJack Horseman': Reviewing every season 3 episode of Netflix's best show

26 July 2016 8:14 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

BoJack Horseman is the best of all of Netflix's original series, and one of the best shows on television. In its third season, which was released on Friday, the series about an incredibly rich, famous, and depressed acting horse somehow became even darker and more experimental, and the season's fourth installment — which I discussed at length with BoJack creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg — may turn out to be the best episode of TV anyone will make this year(*). (*) Hey, other streaming shows: BoJack should be an object lesson in how to tell a deeply serialized story across an entire season while still making individual episodes stand out as more than just pieces of the whole. Now that the season's out there, and many of you have had a chance to watch the whole thing, I'm going to do miniature reviews of each episode — with full spoilers for the whole season — coming up »

'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’ Season 3 Premiere: Can ‘Bad’ TV Be Better Than Oscar Movies?

22 July 2016 9:03 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television 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 Episode 1.]

Read More: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Review: Season 3 Deserves an Oscar (And Every Other Award)

Is “Horsin’ Around” Better Than “Secretariat,” and Is TV Better Than Film?

The most important takeaway from the premiere of “BoJack Horseman” is that BoJack already knows an Oscar may not make him happy. This could’ve been a realization made much later in the season, but creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg wastes no time in Season 3. He’s got big fish to fry, and each episode takes on far more than just the requisite plot developments. By putting BoJack’s motivation into question already — for an arc that will still last all season — Bob-Waksberg shifts the conversation to a bigger topic for this half hour: Should BoJack be prouder of “Horsin’ Around” than “Secretariat”?

Clearly, the answer is, “yes.” Considering BoJack wasn’t actually in his Oscar vehicle (he was digitally replaced) and he became a star from “Horsin’ Around, »

Review: ‘BoJack Horseman’ Season 3, Episode by Episode, Stays Beautiful — But Never Apologizes For Going Dark

13 July 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

When you look for beauty in life, the most rewarding moments are the unexpected. And for the third season in a row, the Hollywood comedy “BoJack Horseman” has surprised us.

That’s weird to say about a show which stars a cartoon celebrity horse (voiced by Will Arnett) whose personal morals are pretty much nonexistent. But Netflix and creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg have made something profound, re-watchable and dense — and yes, also beautiful and traumatizing.

Start with the very first episode of “BoJack,” and you’ll find that the show’s initial, somewhat nihilist message was that TV exists not to solve your problems, but to suppress them. (That’s what happens, after all, with a series about a washed-up TV star coasting on quickly-acquired fame.) What’s so daring and bold, though, is that it’s never strayed from that message. »

10 Best Horse Movies – Celebrating Birthday Of 1973 Triple Crown Winner Secretariat

30 March 2016 11:09 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

March 30, 1970. Racing champion Secretariat was born.

After Citation in 1948, Secretariat became the first U.S. Triple Crown winner in 25 years and became the stuff of legend.

New York Post columnist Larry Merchant said:

Secretariat is the kind of Big Horse that makes grown men weep, even when they are flint-hearted bettors, even when he goes off at 1-10. He is the apparently unflawed hunk of beauty and beast they search for doggedly in the racing charts every day, and never seemed to find. His supporters rhapsodize over him as though he is a four-legged Nureyev, extolling virtues of his musculature, his grace, his urine specimens.” If he were to lose the Belmont, Merchant warned, “the country may turn sullen and mutinous.”

As of 2015, only 12 horses have won the Triple Crown: Sir Barton (1919), Gallant Fox (1930), Omaha (1935), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948), Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), Affirmed (1978), and American Pharoah (2015).

Horse Racing Movies Based on True Events

8 March 2016 2:03 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

In 2003 Universal Pictures released Seabiscuit, an Oscar-nominated film about horse racing in Depression-era America. Based on a true story, the film had the feel good factor, and perhaps introduced many to the thrilling world of horse racing for the first time. Seabiscuit, the horse, was undersized and unfancied, yet thrilled America with wonderful victories in many races, with the film astutely capturing the atmosphere of the time. However, Seabiscuit was not the first – and perhaps not the best – movie about the sport of kings.

Champions (1984) stars John Hurt as Bob Champion the legendary English jockey who had great success in the 1970s and 1980s. The film portrays Champion’s battle against testicular cancer and how he overcame the disease to win the 1981 Grand National. John Hurt – as ever – is brilliant in the role as the star jockey, giving a nuanced performance that highlights what it takes to be at the »
