News & Interviews for BoJack Horseman: Season 6
The emotional generosity of the series extends right up until that final, lovely, lingering moment.
Season 6 has a steady, startling throughline: BoJack is trying.
In some of the new season's most affecting scenes, BoJack shows Princess Carolyn literally fragmenting herself to get through her daily routine... BoJack seems to understand how performative the job of trying to "have it all" or "do it all" can be.
Knowing BoJack Horseman is coming to an end is painful enough, and these eight episodes do make an effort to smooth the edges off that sadness.
I binged BoJack during a lossy time in my life. I watched to absorb a truism in digestible cartoon form: the more we flail around trying to avoid the pain of loss, the more we lose.
This 2014-2020 anamorphic animated comedy/drama manages to touch on so many real-life examples of social, cultural, political, and philosophical events that infuse the human condition.
If it disappoints, well, that is "classic BoJack": the show, like its antihero, will make you love it even as it lets you down.
Like all every topic the show has courageously covered in its six seasons, Bojack's ending drives the point home that there are no neatly wrapped conclusions. In fact, it's almost boring-life's a bitch, but it goes on.
The humour almost always lands, and while it rarely goes for belly laughs, it is more about light moments of relief as BoJack's world comes crashing down.
This result - a finale that asks "How does BoJack go on with his life now?" without really giving a solid answer - is a fitting one for a show that wanted to explore the life of an awful person with unexamined mental health issues and addiction.
In the end, this is a show about growth, and Season 6 proved that the series evolved along with its characters.
Audience Reviews for BoJack Horseman: Season 6
Dec 23, 2020Take note. Bojack is a rare show the blends that beautiful joy of animation with the ugly truths of reality. Bojack Horseman has set the bar high for adult animated shows. Bravo.
Dec 04, 2020The ending of the show not only infantilizes all of its female characters by erasing their agency in regards to their problematic history, it ruins Diane's character by claiming her having a valid reason for being unhappy is not something that requires a tangible change in her life, but medication despite zero leadup to her having chemical depression, a unique and specific condition which is dangerous to suggest has the same symptoms as general depression. Later she gives up everything in her life and belief system to be more compatible with the new man in her life who is introduced and made her permanent love interest in a montage of one episode. In the end Bojack Horseman wants you to know: Don't try to change the world, don't try to save yourself, you're better off continuing to be a terrible person than attempting to become a healthier one, and the pursuit of miserable but meaningful art over cheery fluff is the wrong one; the last point of which makes me question then why did you make this show?
Nov 20, 2020An astounding ending to an astonishing show. I knew I would like this show from the start, but I couldn't possibly imagine how much it would impact me and help me through a very hard time. The creators seemed to use a colorful, almost childlike world to deal with some of our most difficult issues both inward and external. I've never had an issue with substance abuse, but I've been through more than one bout of depression and I've tasted stardom in the good and bad ways. I related to BoJack much more than I wanted to, but it's because the writers seemed to poke into my own brain and turn it into a show. BOJACK HORSEMAN is one of the greatest creations ever put into film or television, and I'll never stop being happy that I was able to be a viewer.
Sep 19, 2020The last season of Bojack Horseman was brilliant, as by the last episode, they had resolved everything and had a happy, but vague ending, and the last 2 episodes were certainly some of the best on this show
Sep 08, 2020The plot is absurdly beautiful, it shows the absurdity of death, suicide, life experiences, and deciding whether to be aware of its consequences. The end is a conclusion of the uncertainty of reality. In short, we must learn to accept the moment, in happiness, and in what we really are.
Sep 08, 2020People just write off this show as a basic animated adult show with dark humor. This show isn't "dark" it's realistic, its like an indie movie you just see life happening.
Sep 05, 2020Could have easily been two seasons, but successfully paired into a single season while staying true to the characters and sticking the landing. The View From Halfway Down- perfection.
Aug 20, 2020In its emotionally soul-crushing and visually astounding final season, Bojack Horseman ends its run on some of the best drama the series has ever conceived with its final two episodes being the best of the series.
Aug 18, 2020Season 6 had so many punches in the guts to Bojack. Everything just came tumbling down. He was turning things around, but he couldn't escape his past. It was a fair and wise conclusion.
Jul 23, 2020I loved how they ended this show sad to finally finish but I learned a lot from Bojack and all the characters. This show has many layers and I felt connection to every charter and speaks to the existential dread I sometimes find in my own life. I do kind of think Bojack ultimately should have died but don't think that would have been a fair end for the rest of the characters so I was satisfied with the final episode. Overall one of my favorite shows.
