Pilot Season Episode 4: BoJack Horseman

This episode is all about BoJack Horseman, the animated series about a washed up actor from an 80’s sitcom, who also happens to be a horse. Insightful, hilarious and heartbreaking in equal measure, there are currently four seasons available on Netflix.

Disappointments

I’m back. And I’m disappointed. Not in you, you’ve done exactly as I would like and clicked on my link. Or at least read the short descri… …ption.

Utopia Seems Almost Perfect (two episodes in)

As you know if you read the previous post, I am busy interacting with the large screen during these two weeks. This is not a betrayal of the ways of Televigion, merely pre-emptive watching of amazing films that would take time away from my TV watching of the future. Forget the excuses, I’m having a […]

There now follows a comprehensive list of all known series and seasons underway in the House of Televigion; those started and halted, those eagerly awaited on a charmingly retro week-to-week basis, those binged or re-binged and those stuck on while doing something else.

Community – Six Seasons and a Move-y away from what it once was

I currently watch the latest episodes of Community recorded from a television channel I did not previously know I had access to, Sony Entertainment Television. Contrary to my previous post, I’m quite glad it is not available in the same way as in the US, on Yahoo Screen. If each episode didn’t sit recorded on […]

In a World… (of region locking)

Veep is pretty great. This is not news to many. However, I’m only partway through Season 2. I picked it up for £10 in HMV relatively recently and had a stilted but positive chat with the cashier about the fact it is pretty great. One thing I love is that every character is treated equally horribly. […]
