    BoJack Horseman, Season 2: TV’s best show about being sad

    “Have fun being sad!” Todd yells this at BoJack early on in the second season of Netflix’s BoJack Horseman, but it works well describing the series as a whole. This is perhaps the greatest TV show ever about depression and pain, and it’s padded by hilarious gags and talking animals. It’s brilliant, and so sad. More

    The Mid-Season Replacements Episode 12: People Are Lazy

    2015 is here – but before the spring season begins, Randy Dankievitch and Sean Colletti sit back and reflect on the year that was 2014. Ok, no they don’t; instead, they talk about a buttload of television, beginning with the series finales of The Legend of Korra and Selfie. Also on the menu is BoJack Horseman’s Christmas special, TBS’s little-watched sitcom My Boys, and the Benched finale and Empire premiere. Finally, the guys spend a healthy 25% of the podcast discussing Charlie Kaufman’s beautiful, heartwrenching, inspiring, utterly unique film Synecdoche, NY, capping off the podcast with a philosophic conversation about film, life, and the perfection of Philip Seymour Hoffman’s performance. Enjoy!
