This was mostly a madcap Todd episode with a protracted slapstick scene. It just wasn't funny. And I'm pretty sure Yolanda's arc is over?

It felt like the show is trying to find its way with a Bojack who isn't a total jerk. If he's not constantly starting fights, there's a lot of space to fill.

I laughed my guts out at the lube barrel scene, I thought it was super funny. Especially the whole "Asexuals put on EVERY PIECE OF CLOTHING THEY OWN to look unsexy" bit. Amazing.

Some great Todd here! And Pickles! Not sure where Bojack is going, it seems like a professional malaise thing that doesn't have any snappy industry characters like Turtletaub. The director guy is "quirky," but not much to hang bits on.

Describing Laika as the "first woman in space" is just.... *chef's kiss*

Did the Yolanda's parents house plot feel like a full on Noises Off parody to anyone else? Even the drawing of the house, with the bedrooms and the living room visible in one shot reminded me of the set.

I definitely got a Moliere vibe as soon as I saw the house.

I guess OKB1 were a little more careful with Laika in the Bojack universe :(

Are the clocks-with-pipes in Todd's office a reference to anything?

I think it's just a thing.
