S1E8: The Telescope

It's a sad one today folks! Lesley and Ben theorize about Herb and Bojack's last moments together before Herb got fired, pick apart Bojack Horseman's incredible art design and, most importantly, Todd makes friends! YAY TODD!

Our story switches over to Bojack’s side and explains why he suddenly dropped out of the film project Princess Caroline proposed to him at the end of the last episode. Bojack decides to go visit Herb Kazazz after his passive aggressive invitation to come to Malibu. In the car, he relays the story of their friendship, telling Diane about their meeting in the 80s comedy scene and working together on the first couple of years of Horsing Around. A few years into Horsing Around, Herb and Bojack have a tense working relationship, but when Herb is caught in a scandal that threatens the show with cancellation, Bojack agrees to stand by him. When push comes to shove, Bojack is railroaded out of a choice and doesn’t speak up when the time comes.


Of Horses and Men is a weekly podcast about the Netflix Original comedy series, Bojack Horseman. Each Tuesday, Lesley Yates and Ben Hamlin overanalyze the show episode by episode to find meaning in the musings of a very depressed horse.
