This season has already dealt with some heavy themes including depression, infertility and the horrors of war, the rest of the season promises to be just as heart wrenching.

The dark horse of Netflix, Bojack horseman has gone unnoticed by many people, writing it off as a bizarre cartoon. But as the many, many headlines will tell you, this show isn’t afraid to get deep. What other show can you watch a down on his luck, alcoholic actor dwell on his crippling loneliness, tendency to drive those who love him away and generally derail his life, all voiced by the dulcet tones of Will Arnett of Arrested Development fame?  Admittedly about 50% of its characters are animals, but don’t that let that stop you from diving into its nihilistic, yet occasionally joyful world.
