S3E4: Fish Out Of Water

19e4bab29d95cee1f887a3e49393c7837307863c.jpg

It’s an in depth examination of the way we consume media, millennial attention spans, visual storytelling, pantomime, intimacy and loneliness and so much more on this submerged episode of Of Hoses and Men with Lesley and Ben!

It’s the underwater episode. As part of his award tour, Bojack Horseman is asked to go get on a plane and attend a premiere of Secretariat in a foreign market. Except that by a plane, she means a submarine and by a foreign market, she means the ocean. Completely unable to comprehend the culture around him and seemingly unable to speak, Bojack finds himself a stranger in a strange land. Which would be fine, if he were not sharing the open seas and this film festival with Kelsey Jannings.

S3E3: Bojack Kills!

tumblr_ojp687Af3e1vbbcoto1_500.gif

Not to get Marxist on main or anything, but Lesley and Ben tackle happiness culture and the idea that hard work and commodities will make you happy. It’s a very philosophical episode of Of Horses and Men.

While hob-nobbing and rubbing elbows with various academy voters, Bojack Horseman is assigned a task of the utmost secrecy by Jill Pill. You see, ahhh, in the past, Jill may have written some compromising words to Cuddlywhiskers, Bojack’s former collaborator and she’d like that love letter back. What seems like a simple errand quickly turns into a  detective serial worthy of Raymond Chandler

Meanwhile, Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane’s relationship begins to strain even further as Diane continually neglects and ignores her husband while on this adventure.

It’s the season two finale here on Of Horses and Men! If you like the show, now’s a great time to leave a review on our iTunes! Please tell your friends about us and help make this show a success. Thanks for sticking with us so far!


Bojack returns from his misadventures in New Mexico and finds his house in ruins. Diane has been crashing at the Horseman estate for months now and her life isn’t the only one is disarray. Princess Caroline is starting a new agency, but her personal relationship with Rabinowitz is on the fritz. Diane and Peanutbutter still aren’t talking to each other, and Mr. Peanutbutter doesn’t even know his wife is back in the country. Meanwhile Todd is doubling down on his commitment to improv comedy by joining the giggle ship.

All this and it would seem that Lenny Turtletaub finished Bojack’s dream project without him.. and then erased him from it completely.

Special guest Johnny Rinaldo returns to talk about one of his favorite arcs of the show! This one got a little goofy, so there's about ten minutes of bonus content up on out patreon for $1/mo

Diane is overstaying her welcome at the Horseman household, much to the frustration of Bojack’s other roommate, his girlfriend Wanda, who is barely tolerating Diane’s day drinking and disinterest in cleaning. Speaking of frustration, Bojack finds himself confused that the new director of his movie, Abe, isn’t bothering to go back for second takes. Upset that his collaborator isn’t putting more effort into the project, he confronts Abe, who assures him that it’ll be fine and they’ll fix it in post - and that “hey, we aren’t making casablanca over here.”

Meanwhile, Princess Caroline and Rabinowitz makes moves on their new partnership and each other as they try to recruit their old clients to their new agency. Diane is unable to deal with the guilt of lying to Mr. Peanutbutter about having left Cordovia and drags Bojack down to her level. Bojack succumbs back to his old ways of day drinking and lazing about - and stops showing up to the set of Secretariet.

S2E9: The Shot

Our story begins in the 70s, with a young Bojack watching his hero Secretariat. The racehorse champion is giving an interview about our boys out in Vietnam fighting the good fight against the communists. Secretariat’s patriotic performance seems less than convincing - but it leaves an impression on young Bojack, who upon seeing his hero smoke, tries a cigarette from his mother’s purse. That does not end well.
Now in the present, something’s missing from Bojack’s Secretariat movie. Turtletaub has cut out some critical scenes and Bojack feels it’s messing with the story’s intended message. Defensive about his hero’s legacy, Bojack recruits Mr. Peanutbutter, Princess Caroline, Kelsey Jannings and character actress Margo Martindale to stage a heist in the Nixon library to get the most poignant shot of the film
