tumblr_p5zbh4pi1k1vfecm0o1_1280.png

We’re back from vacation and ready to move full steam ahead with the rest of season three. We talk about the meta narrative role of satire in Bojack Horseman, as well as Princess Caroline’s assertion that you can’t critique the systems you’re in unless you’re the best player in the game. Gatekeeping, inappropriate music videos and more. It’s a heady episode of Of Horses and Men with Lesley and Ben!

Upon learning about her surprise pregnancy, Diane and Mr. Peanutbutter decide that it would be best if Diane underwent an abortion. Unable to deal with the stress of her upcoming procedure and distracted by Bojack, Diane accidentally tweets about her abortion from her client Sextina Aquafina’s twitter account. Now entrenched in a PR disaster, Diane has to navigate her own future while dealing with Sextina’s flippant approach to the same circumstances. Meanwhile Bojack finds himself on the road to the Oscars without as many minor awards as he wanted. Perhaps the system is working against him.. or one agent of it anywayle

The box office numbers for Secretariat start to roll in - and it looks like Bojack’s dream project is an absolute success. Todd and Bojack go hit the down and, in the process, run into Emily - a old flame and friend of Todd’s from High School. The three of them crash a wedding rehearsal dinner and Bojack sabotages not one, but two relationships as he disrupts a lesbian wedding and any attempt at romantic connection between Todd and Emily.

Meanwhile, in couples therapy, Diane discovers that she can’t communicate her emotions toward Mr. Peanutbutter until she takes a load of drugs, and Princess Caroline attempts to utilize her time off for romance.

Lesley and Ben talk about the visual language of hallucinogenic drug usage, the complexities of Judah, whether or not film festivals really matter and LESLEY’S NEW CAAAAAAT.

S3E4: Fish Out Of Water

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!

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.

Hope you all like Starbucks humor!

Remember during the previous episode when that one reporter brought up the Bojack Horseman show? And how Jill Pill mentioned Bojack’s /actual/ previous show? Haha what was up with that?

It’s time to find out what was up with that! It’s a flash back episode and that means we’re spending plenty of time with all your favorite characters in the distant land of 2007. Hear! Bojack and a large charismatic hamster write a script in one night! See! Mr. Peanutbutter and Diane’s first actual meeting! Feel! The wrath of 2007 Princess Caroline’s pretty kitty claws as she fights institutional sexism! It’s a blast from the past on this week’s Of Horses and Men
