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.
December 21, 2018
If this seems like heavy stuff for a cartoon, BoJack has earned it.
December 21, 2018
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.
December 21, 2018
It's the small push towards audience self-reflection that really makes BoJack season five stand out.
December 21, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
December 21, 2018
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.
December 21, 2018
By consistently pushing the boundaries of mental health discussions and characterizations on TV, BoJack has managed to make itself one of the most interesting and engaging animated shows, ever.
Full Review | Original Score: 9.6/10
December 21, 2018
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.
December 20, 2018
Razor-sharp writing coated with wicked humour, this is really streaming gold.
December 5, 2018
I think there could be a lot of life left in BoJack Horseman, but it can't continually promise change and then renege on that to play out the same arc again and again.

"Free Churro" is an extraordinary achievement. [Full Review in Spanish]
Full Review | Original Score: 10/10

So on purely technical grounds, season five is BoJack's weakest. But it also might be the show's bravest.
October 10, 2018
While The Simpsons may always be the 'best' animated show in the history of television, BoJack might be the most daring.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
October 3, 2018
The writing is razor-sharp, the targets pointed and the humanity of it all is as messy as it is complete. This is a series in the form of its life.
October 1, 2018
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.
September 26, 2018
The series has watched as BoJack has done despicable things, but in its own comic, self-lampooning way, it has struggled to come to terms with this despicableness.
September 25, 2018
It's easy to call this season "more of the same", but for a show as good as BoJack Horseman, that's a compliment.
September 21, 2018
This [season] is hopeful, even amid the doom and gloom of the show's topics.

BoJack remains Will Arnett's magnum opus. His ability to inflect his voice with simultaneous ego and self-hatred is astounding.
September 19, 2018
For a series that consistently slides between happiness, misery, and everything in-between, this installment proves that Bojack Horseman continues to explore all of those feelings as freshly as it did in its first season.
