“Bojack Horseman” is over and everything is worse now. “Bojack” is one of the best shows that Netflix has ever produced.
The show centers around Bojack, a washed-up sitcom actor, trying to find relevance in the modern world. The show successfully represents topics like addiction, abuse and loss without overdramatizing them.
One of the topics that the show represents very well is asexuality. The show features a character who is asexual without using it as a joke, like how some shows choose to do, and treats said character’s feelings as completely valid.
Beyond being great on its own, the show has some near-perfect episodes like “Free Churro”, “Fish Out of Water” and “The View From Halfway Down”. These episodes are perfect examples of the genius in “Bojack Horseman’s” writers’ room.
“Bojack Horseman” features likable characters who are each flawed in their own way and work to overcome these flaws throughout all six seasons, leading up to a satisfying conclusion.
The title character has the most growth throughout the show, starting off as a washed-up celebrity addict and ending as a changed man who is doing everything in his power to be better.
The show also shows that being better doesn’t make past injustices go away. Every one of Bojack’s actions has a subsequent result, making him a better character in the process.
