I think the reason why Bojack Horseman isn't exactly funny to me is because it's such a realistic interpretation of the 'lovable asshole' archetype. I say realistic because I as an audience member should be supporting Bojack as a protagonist, but I hate him. And not like the average "Gee, I hate that guy haha he's hilarious, time for the next episode," or "This character is too detailed and relatable to enjoy." No, watching Bojack is like watching someone you know actively go out of their way to try to be the lovable asshole. But the thing about trying so hard to be the lovable asshole, is that you aren't lovable. You're JUST an asshole. Insecure and unable to communicate without pushing people away. Comedy shows damn near fetishize cynicism to the point that being cynical is just as formulaic as the tween pop you mock. You literally become the problem. Pessimism is not realism you whiny, pathetic fuck. Other people's happiness is not fake just because you are too sorry to actively seek it.
Bojack Horseman is the type of show that malleable people mimic because they fail to see the satire in a sociopath getting shit on. The same malleable people will go out of their way to be put into the same situations Bojack wobbles into so they can feel superior about themselves when they stutter out that edgy rehearsed "I don't care" line. The same malleable people who go out of their way to disrupt environments because they can't get positive attention from people who are too nice to tell them to fuck off. People like you are the type of people who call people sheep while totally ignoring that not only are you a sheep yourself, but you're a black sheep, so you aren't even useful like other sheep.
Bojack represents the type of person that peaked in high school and never found their way to college, but have the audacity to look down at you because they read a stolen copy of some nihilistic book from reddit or 4chan or 9gag or whatever """underground""" anti-special snowflake forum they think is cool because 'FOX News did a story on it calling them hackers, sheeple are so stupid'. I would say that you don't have anything to contribute to society-- to life-- but you would just try to take pride in that because happiness is conformity wrapped in idiocy, right? The type of greasy loser that has somehow become a popular character trope in the past couple of years is so infuriatingly pathetic that it has ignited a fiery passion in my heart dedicated to not tolerating fake cynicism. Life's not that bad, you don't actually want to die, everyone isn't out to get you, all problems have a solution, and you're a lazy asshole who should not be taking pride in that if you actually consider yourself as smart as you think you are.
