It's a consistent joy to watch the series bring that same richness to its characters' internal realities. Tuca and Bertie are still trying to figure things out, but the series handles their growing pains with tenderness and understanding.
The innocent goofiness permeating early episodes of Tuca & Bertie masks dark sorrows born of trauma, emerging slowly but with steady assurance as the season progresses and never losing site of the characters' humanity.
That the voice cast includes the likes of Richard E. Grant, Reggie Watts, Tig Notaro and Nailed It!'s Nicole Byer is a bonus. Fans of Broad City lamenting the end of that masterpiece might find it a candy-coloured consolation.
Wilder, lighter, and fluffier than BoJack because it cherishes the absurd and punny. Its strength is its delightful visuals, which teeter from hilariously hipster to Seussian surreality, and pop with more energy than BoJack.
It's the design of the show that makes it more than a diversion. I mean it as a compliment when I say that you could project this show on the wall of a nightclub with music blasting and still be mesmerized by it.
The start of Tuca & Bertie often left me confused, even as I enjoyed looking at it. But I stuck with it and soon found myself simply happy to be spending time in the company of these dysfunctional but endearing pals, and eager to see more when it comes.
