Critic Reviews for BoJack Horseman Season 5

All Critics (47) | Top Critics (12)

It's difficult, cathartic television. It feels personal.

Sep 9, 2019 | Full Review…

BoJack underscores the seemingly immutable nature of sexism in the industry by weaving Diane, the closest thing the show has to a moral center, into the Philbert plot line.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It strikes a perfect balance between genuine laughter and laughing through the tears. And that's how it distinguishes itself from so many other sitcoms currently on television.

Oct 1, 2018 | Full Review…

Even in the episodes which revel in delightful full-fledged farce, there is such depth of feeling to "BoJack," such investment in its message.

Sep 6, 2018 | Rating: A | Full Review…

If this seems like heavy stuff for a cartoon, BoJack has earned it.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

BoJack's fifth season is once again a home-run, delivering a nuanced examination of addiction and an astonishingly self-aware take on the #Metoo movement and the male-dominated culture of Hollywood.

Feb 28, 2020 | Full Review…

There's no escaping the fact that sometimes, BoJack goes beyond simple half-cut lethargy and does genuinely messed-up things - and this latest season isn't remotely afraid to confront us with that.

Oct 8, 2019 | Full Review…

[BoJack's] place in the recent TV canon is secure.

Sep 30, 2019 | Full Review…

'BoJack Horseman' is an authentic wonder that keeps evolving and it's not afraid of facing sensitive issues. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 10, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Far from mean-spirited, this in fact invites extended periods of reflection, and of grieving - like Bojack has grieved all his life for the happiness he never, ever received.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

While, arguably, no single episode in the newly released fifth season may be as devastating as season 4's heart-shattering "Time's Arrow," the season as a whole does succeed in finding new depths of darkness.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It's the small push towards audience self-reflection that really makes BoJack season five stand out.

Audience Reviews for BoJack Horseman: Season 5

  • Jun 18, 2020
    By far the worst of the series. New characters add no flavor and pull away interest from the intensity of their roles. The show briefly forgot that it was a tragic comedy, not a drama with half-baked animal humor.
  • Apr 05, 2020
    This season manages to raise the stakes higher than the rest, offering the darkest storyline of BoJack's life yet, while also teasing the possibility of his redemption.
  • Mar 26, 2020
    Loved every season of this, loved every part of Bojack. Very meta and introspective.
  • Mar 19, 2020
    9.75/10. BoJack continues to amaze, depress, and restore me. I'm not sure how it's possible for a show to push sitcom boundaries episode after episode while making me feel deeper and laugh harder than I have at any one other show. And it isn't just BoJack's story that provides that mix - it's the entire supporting cast. Each main character gets special attention from the writers, who deftly interweave the personal traumas and joys of each character into a satisfying larger narrative whole. Attention to detail in the animation continues to be platinum-level, as is the voice cast. BoJack Horseman S5 continues to be one of the fiercest, funniest, and devistating shows on tv.
  • Feb 27, 2020
    WAY overrated. A chronically boring saga of the white male ego dressed up in a gimmick & surrounded by a bunch of emperor's-new-clothes cattle-critics. Sorry, but that's the truth.
  • Feb 01, 2020
    Creators should strive to come close to this kind of content.
  • Jan 25, 2020
    Sometimes it comes off as frustratingly woke, but it's also self aware of its culturally relevant pc agenda in the form of relatable satire.
  • Dec 15, 2019
    (It finally worked) As bold, thrillingly unrestrained and twisted as ever, Bojack's fifth season continues to defy genre tropes with an emotionally-charged, thematically sophisticated rollercoaster ride that draws laughter from your soul as often as it draws tears from your eyes. Iroh's grade: A-
  • Nov 27, 2019
    I can't think of any other show that manages to hold a mirror to itself in ways that Bojack season 5 did. This show will be remembered for a long time.
  • Nov 23, 2019
    Season 5 was really good and was definitely better than season 4. I did think there was a couple dumb stuff in it that shouldn't have really been added but overall, season 5 was another great season for Bojack Horseman
