It's refreshing not to be babied with easy resolutions or conventional framing, to watch a show that asks us to do more as we watch cartoon humans, cats, dogs, and horses wrestle with our most deep-seated insecurities and fears.
If you've enjoyed the previous seasons of BoJack Horseman that you should catch up on the latest entry. I'll also recommended that you take it slowly. It is emotionally devastating in the best way possible, but emotional devastation is still devastating.
This is heavy material to cram into 25 minutes, but each episode succeeds through a mix of sharp dialogue and the goofy humor inherent to a world equally populated by humans and anthropomorphic animals.
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.
BoJack Horseman season 5 does not disappoint and moves its show and characters forward in a way that most shows aren't willing to explore. Some of the best work from the entire series is in this season.
