Raphael Bob-Wakesberg on his favorite tv shows

BoJack Horseman and Tuca & Bertie creator Raphael Bob-Wakesberg talks about his favorite tv shows at Rolling Stone. “As soon as I agreed to do this, I was like, ‘This is very hard! How do you possibly compare these shows?’ Sometimes my frustration with these lists — it’s not so much about the lists as the conversation around the lists, talking about these things like there’s some objective truth to it. Like, ‘How can you possibly rank this show 20 and that show 32, when if you mathematically look at the merits…’ It’s all subjective! It’s all personal! And so much of our appreciation of television is what it means to us and how we experienced it, and where it fits into our story. I think all writing—and criticism is very much included in this—is a form of autobiography, and I thought that I wanted to lean into it a little bit, and talk about what these shows meant to me.'”
