April needs to see this
April needs to stop saying “Like” for the 1,000 times
Fun subjective reviews, but...
These hosts sound like great people and I'm only writing this because I genuinely would like to see the show improve.
If the podcast is intended to function as an in-depth analysis of Bojack Horseman, what I feel would help is if the hosts mix a little objectivity and philosophy into their discussions. Bojack is a show that has strived to show us a deterministic view of humanity (and animals maybe?), and yet the podcast tends to forget this whenever a character does something they don't approve of on a personal level.
I enjoy listening to Wisecrack's Rick & Morty podcast "The Squanch" because the hosts understand the philosophy of nihilism and it's significance to Rick & Morty's script. They share their feelings, but they also try to share a meta analysis of what the writers were trying to say.
I challenge this podcast's hosts to maybe spend a little time critiquing the show through the lens of a determinist or fatalist' perspective. You all are great and keep up the hard work.
(ps, judging from the reviews I'm not alone in thinking one of the hosts says "like" like... a lot lol. An innocent habit that I hope they can break for the sake of the podcast :)
Appreciate everyone's opinions on this, the podcast is very engaging. I like the fact you go episode by episode and really dig into the show.
