Also, is that it for Bojack Horseman, the show? Feels like the appropriate moment to call it quits, even though I obviously want (at least) another season.

Bigendian, the showrunner Raphael Bob-Waksberg said that he is going to “keep making the show as long as I can" so I suspect there will be another season.

It's gonna take me time to come up with more cohesive thoughts about this episode, but one thing I want to say is that I loved that Diane admits that Bojack could still be an asshole after rehab instead of just glossing over that fear to get him in the door.

I think it really shows growth in BoJack's character that he kept his mouth shut during the interview. I feel like he totally would've just done whatever he thought was right (letting the world crucify him) against Gina's advice because he did that just earlier this season with the singing. Growth. Plus all the visual metaphors for the light at the end of the tunnel...Wow. Just wow.

This interview with Raphael Bob-Waksberg is absolutely with your time: it includes deep conversations about whitewashing and their ongoing efforts to improve the diversity of both the voice talent and the writers.

The show already explained to us why everyone has to remain miserable, but it skipped why Bojack had to be in a drug induced blackout and really not remember strangling Gina. We have to maintain some sympathy for the character. If he's just the ugly abuser his real world counterparts are, then we stop watching the show.

That.. that was a lot to process.

For next season, I'd like to see Diane level up a bit. INT. SUB showed she has the skills.

Hey, so the animators on Bojack Horseman Are fomenting action to demand a Union, this video explains it all

Fucking Michael Eisner.... I hope they succeed in forming a union, even if it costs us this show.

I just saw this on Twitter: Season 6 is the final season; it's split up, half on October 25, half January 31; and Jonny Sun helped write this season!

The Good Place, BoJack...I'm liking this "leave them wanting more" strategy.

Maybe they can un-cancel Tuca & Bertie then, too

The first half of the final season is out now!
