For a 26 min run time so much happened. most of the background jokes went by lightining fast and some felt like entomology jokes that went over my head (Like the grasshopper/locus lady and the guy in the car having salt sprinkled onto his head).

So, so, good.

After this episode, I paused to marvel at the level of mastery. If I'd had to wait a week for the next one, I'd have been perfectly content and sated.

But no. No, of course not. Considered pause? Look, I can have a spoonful of ice cream, but a whole box of BoJack in the house? You can't stop at one.

I think it was a praying mantis prostitute putting salt on that guy's head because female praying mantises eat their mates.

BTW if you're like me and all the celebrity voices take you out of the fiction, I HIGHLY recommend watching with the french dub with subtitles. The french actors do a great job. (I'm sure the other languages do too)

Nice tribute to Ralph Carney, who died last year, in the opening.

From wikipedia:

Carney's nephew Patrick Carney is the drummer for the Black Keys. The two collaborated on the theme music to the Netflix original series BoJack Horseman. A memorial tribute can be observed during the opening credits to season 5.

For five seasons straight, it has bothered me that he clearly has a reasonably deep pool on his deck. But in the title credits just after he sinks in the pool they pull back and reveal that you can’t see the bottom of his pool when viewing the under-side of his deck. Drives me crazy every time. Otherwise it’s a perfect show.
