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.
December 20, 2018
Razor-sharp writing coated with wicked humour, this is really streaming gold.
October 10, 2018
While The Simpsons may always be the 'best' animated show in the history of television, BoJack might be the most daring.

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 19, 2018
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.
September 18, 2018
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 [season] is hopeful, even amid the doom and gloom of the show's topics.

So on purely technical grounds, season five is BoJack's weakest. But it also might be the show's bravest.
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 17, 2018
BoJack has always been good at having character-based episodes as a kind of template for the series and Season 5 is no exception to that.

September 20, 2018
BoJack remains Will Arnett's magnum opus. His ability to inflect his voice with simultaneous ego and self-hatred is astounding.
September 18, 2018
In a world that's becoming increasingly polarized in its lowest-common-denominator shakedown of good vs. evil, BoJack Horseman refuses to give easy answers to hard questions.
September 14, 2018
BoJack Horseman is the opposite of a sad show - it declares over and over again that each of us has the potential to grow, be better, change.
September 17, 2018
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.
September 17, 2018
Crippling existential dread pervades nearly every crevice of Bojack Horseman's fifth go-round, making it arguably the show's most quietly devastating season to date.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
December 21, 2018
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
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.
September 7, 2018
BoJack Horseman has always been relevant, but BoJack has never felt more important.
September 7, 2018
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
September 12, 2018
It's extremely silly one second, sorrowful the next, and equally effective at both.
