When I recently reviewed season 5 of Bojack Horseman I was complaining about how bad it was. Now after seeing the season finale, my feelings have changed. It seems the last episode “The Show Stopped” that everything finally falls into place. Bojack’s need to be happy, combined with his various addictions finally have caught up with him. A spoiler here at the end he winds up going into Rehab. Which really shouldn’t be surprising to longtime fans as you know this was going to happen sometime in the series. Is season 5 episodes all that bad? I eventually came across half of them that was up to the series standard. So does that mean the other episodes are terrible? No just uncomfortable, we see how circumstances have caused changes in all the major characters, even their circumstances.
This is an uncomfortable season I will fully admit that. Some of the episodes won’t be up to everyone’s taste. But once you get down to the last 2 or 3 episodes the madness season five was beings to make sense.
Revised overall rating 7/ 10
