Critic Reviews for BoJack Horseman Season 5

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.

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.

'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.

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

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

Dec 21, 2018 | Full Review…

What's amazing is that, even as BoJack Horseman skewers entertainment media and celebrity culture through thinly veiled approximations of real-world behavior, BoJack the character is blind to his own complicity in it.

Dec 21, 2018 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

By now, we shouldn't be surprised that BoJack can do anything, or be anything. It can be the funniest show on TV and the saddest within the span of seconds.

Audience Reviews for BoJack Horseman: Season 5

    if you want to waste your time on the drunken emo rants of a drunken horseman on why life is always terrible while hanging out with equally terrible people this is the show for you
  • Mar 12, 2019
    This for me is the best season of Bojack Horseman. All the characters, apart from Todd, have interesting stories. Mr Peanutbutter is starting to become one of my favourite characters. Once again it ends on a sad note. I love the digs at celebrity culture and the media. It always amazes me how a show about a cartoon horse can have some really important outlooks on life.
  • Mar 10, 2019
    A beautifully animated, written and acted series of television. One of, if not the best TV show ever created.

    It's weird that RT lets me write good reviews about Bojack but if I say anything negative about Captain Marvel, my comment is deleted. Why is that one film a problem? Weird! Anyway, this is one of the best cartoons on at the moment - dark, but clever.
  • Mar 08, 2019
    From the writing to the voice actors and everything in between, this is simply a refreshing animated show that isn't afraid to explore darker topics that many of us deal with in our own lives. I'd love to see this show continue for years to come as long as the quality can remain as it is.
  • Feb 25, 2019
    Free Churro is enough to make season 5 of Bojack Horseman worth watching, but the rest of it is still as funny, dark, and outrageous as before while still finding new ways to subvert our expectations.
  • Jan 20, 2019
    I laugh, I cry, I binge watch.
  • Jan 18, 2019
    Continues to have extremely interesting stories with very creative takes and directing for such a weird show.
  • Jan 16, 2019
    it’s a perfect mix of wokeness and comedy 10/10
  • Jan 12, 2019
