News & Interviews for BoJack Horseman: Season 5
BoJack underscores the seemingly immutable nature of sexism in the industry by weaving Diane, the closest thing the show has to a moral center, into the Philbert plot line.
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.
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.
Even in the episodes which revel in delightful full-fledged farce, there is such depth of feeling to "BoJack," such investment in its message.
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.
