My favorite happy-sad-show is back!! Loved the phone call scene.

Those flashback scenes are so sad.... I mean, BoJack is responsible for his own messes, but that childhood sure didn't help.

Will BoJack survive the end of the show ? odds are 50/50 for me.

For a moment in there, things seemed pleasant. I knew it would not last.

The final scene in this episode broke me. One of the running themes of this show is how we pass our trauma down to our children in our own ways. When little BoJack curled up on his mother's lap, I read it as I want to be just like Mommy and Daddy because I love them and the inadvertent harm to (or death of?) his childhood innocence went straight to my emotional core and hit it hard.

This is one of my favorite TV shows ever, but since I became a parent I've been Going Through Some Shit and this broke me. I'm continuing to watch the remainder of the series out of a desperate hope for catharsis, but this messed me up for days.
