For a series that consistently slides between happiness, misery, and everything in-between, this installment proves that Bojack Horseman continues to explore all of those feelings as freshly as it did in its first season.
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.
If you've enjoyed the previous seasons of BoJack Horseman that you should catch up on the latest entry. I'll also recommended that you take it slowly. It is emotionally devastating in the best way possible, but emotional devastation is still devastating.
This is heavy material to cram into 25 minutes, but each episode succeeds through a mix of sharp dialogue and the goofy humor inherent to a world equally populated by humans and anthropomorphic animals.
No one's fully happy with the way things are going, the status quo is uneasy at best, and it's a safe bet things will get weirder and darker the longer it goes on. Exactly where BoJack Horseman is at its best.
