It was always highly appreciated and recommended by the critics for its realistic take on depression, trauma, addiction, self- destructive behaviour, racism, sexism, sexuality and the overall human condition that is prevailing in the society. The series received various awards like Critic’s
Choice Award for Best Animated Series. It received 3 Annie Awards and 2 Writers Guild Awards America. It was also nominated for two Primetime Emmy Awards.
In the mentioned web series Bojack is a 50-year-old sitcom star trying to write a memoir.
In the 6th season, the show is much more than just the protagonist himself. Bojack, well technically a horseman who possesses all the qualities of a Classic T.V anti-hero. For the past five seasons he was shown being self- involved, inconsiderate, alcoholic, drug-addicted, sometimes misogynistic, emotionally abusive and largely oblivious to the consequences of his actions, and he was also shown trying to desperately change that.
And while making space for feminist based ideology, Bojack Horseman sneaks in some hilarious jabs at film and TV projects that try to gain feminist credibility for doing the same thing on a more superficial basis.
The central message that the ending season imparts to the audience is that we all have animal instincts and we try repeatedly to overcome them. But sometimes we need extra hands to carry us and place us back on the ground.
The final episode of Bojack Horseman handles the developments in a long-running Me too style storyline with the show’s signature mix of thoughtfulness, earned snark and occasional outright silliness.
Bojack Horseman voice is given by Will Arnett, Todd Chavez by Aaron Paul & Diane Nguyen by Alison Brie.
The first part of season 6 was released on October 25, 2019, and the second part was released on January 31, 2020.
