Butt Pirates

I for one prefer butt ninjas. 

Sure, they can be a bit too quick about the job, but at least they're not as unnecessarily rough as butt pirates. Seriously, if even your parrot is yelling the safety word, you should stop.

And that's why I think Bojack Horseman is mostly short on laughs, but provides a surprisingly deep analysis of its characters and modern society when it wants to. Too bad there are so many exposition dialogue scenes explaining the jokes. 

As for how I've been, today is the first day I've gotten off work or been allowed to go off-campus at 5pm or earlier since Monday. Fuck training. I need this upcoming three-day weekend after I get off at 5 tomorrow.

there's nothing like the chivalry of a butt knight.

I wonder if that's a boss in Shovel Knight. I really should just buy the game, but damn I want it to go on sale.

I've always been partial to butt robots. They're programmed for just one thing, but they do it efficiently and without human monitoring.

Yeah, but it's more socially acceptable for women to have butt robots.

Society really should expand it's mind.

I want to check out this Bojack Horseman but I'm kinda scared to. I don't want to be scarred like when I saw the first opening sequence to Orange is the new black...

No, there's no tampon sabatoge in Bojack Horseman. It's just a cartoon that feels like it came from 90s HBO. For good and bad reasons. Overall, I'm glad I watched it, even though its humor rarely worked for me, because I've become invested in the characters and want more. Hopefully, they can cool it on the "I'm definitely not doing x cause x would make me a terrible person" dialogue. I've never found writing like that funny. Still, it did have its moments and I love the cast. I especially like any time I can hear Patton Oswalt's voice. I like that guy. 

... Orange is the New Black is a much better show than Bojack in my opinion, by the way. Maybe we'll be opposites on that? I love OitNB. Not as much as House of Cards, but it is a good series.

I think butt cowboys are better than butt ninjas and pirates.

What sets the butt Cowboys apart?

It's a recommendation that comes with a warning that it's very cynical and typical cartoon humor that I tend to be bored with in many cases, though it does have its better comedy moments (Vincent Adultman made me laugh a few times).

But that cynicism gets turned on the characters and the society around them while some cogent points are made about how people internalize and externalize their problems, which makes for one hell of a drug scene and some surprisingly deep character interaction and introspection. I'm looking forward to seeing where it goes next season (hopefully) for sure and I'm thinking of bumping my three stars for it on my Netflix account up to four now that I've rewatched it a bit and had an appreciation for where it goes vs. where it starts, but don't say I didn't warn you that it's not going to be everyone's thing starting out and if you don't end up liking the characters, maybe the charm that grew on me won't translate. 

I should honestly type up a review of each episode.
