    In the end the depressed horse show didn’t just give us a way to vocalize our own vulnerabilities, insecurities, and mental anguish. It also gave us hope for a better future, as well as a guide for us all to find our own happiness.

    In a valedictory review it’s remiss not to mention the voice performances, each of which has grown with its character. It’s a career-defining role for Arnett, but all the leads have found sensitivity and nuance amid the gags. ... For all its virtuosic experimentation, in its final moments BoJack Horseman reveals a conservative, even Christian, heart in which the world’s hardships are best met with old virtues: kindness, moderation, hope. In 2020, it is a radical thought.

    How do you end a series like BoJack Horseman? ... You find a middle ground, a milestone that ties off the story and acts as a pause before it carries itself forward on its own momentum somewhere off the screen. That is the only way BoJack Horseman–perhaps the greatest animated drama series ever created–could have ended, and that’s exactly the way it does.

    Episode 15 feels like “BoJack Horseman: The Drama” while the start of Episode 16 feels like “BoJack Horseman: The Sitcom,” and (for once) the blend doesn’t come together as part of the series’ potent and inventive new genre. But it still sticks the landing. ... Balancing its tones, ambitions, and deep respect for its characters, the series emerges an unparalleled original. No more horse than a man, no more man than a horse. It’s both.

    This final batch of episodes delivers on all of the surreal contradictions that have made BoJack Horseman great. Despite some rushed pacing, each character’s ending feels earned—and more importantly, the same can be said for the relationships they each choose to have with BoJack going forward.

    This series was never just about a single (horse)man. If Mad Men felt like the end of a specific chapter in anti-heroic TV, BoJack Horseman, which debuted less than a year before Mad Men’s finale, serves as the epilogue that officially closes the book. ... BoJack Horseman handles the developments in its long-running Me Too–style story line with the show’s signature mix of thoughtfulness, earned snark, and occasional outright silliness.

    We can all find jewels in unexpected places. If you’re open to having a pink talking cat struggle with the grief of miscarriage, or can find emotional depth in a horse with dementia being consoled by her errant son, then you bring to BoJack Horseman what it needs to be appreciated. And it’s worth it.

    This may be the least funny season of BoJack, but it's also the most bingeable. Suspense, drama, and the sense of inevitable doom make it tough to see but impossible not to watch.

Bojack Horseman ended as one of the most impressive shows of the golden age of streaming. It's not only masterfully written, but it's also beautifully acted, animated, directed and edited. This is definitely one of the tv shows that should enter the halls of museums or lists of top 100 best of all time of pretentious critics. The penultimate episode it's the best of the series, and it was an impressive feat, in a show that did memorable episodes like a silent episode (Fish Out of Water) and a monologue episode (free churro), episodes that consolidate the fantastic designed and bold decisions of the writers and producers, see more one of this masterly crafted experimental episodes is chilling, and it's a hell of a ride. It ends as one of the masterfull series of modern time, in the same level as Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, Mad men and Breaking Bad. Full Review »
