Diane’s discovery prompts an unwitting proxy debate about what it truly takes to move on from, and make up for, one’s past. “It’s a struggle for me, personally,” Bob-Waksberg says. “I, as an individual, believe in the power of forgiveness, and I want to believe that everybody is forgivable, that nobody is hopeless, that there are things people can do to make things right. But also, if you look at some of these examples of the long list of dirtbag men, I believe, fuck those guys. I’m not interested in their redemption. So, how do you negotiate those two ideas? I’m not sure I have, fully.”

“It’s a thing I take very seriously,” he said. “I would actually love if our industry could regulate that a little better — if the Writers Guild could regulate that a little better — because I do think there are a lot of people given these high-powered jobs who don’t deserve them and I think are not ready for them and they make a lot of people miserable.

Ultimately, there is no master plan for what comes next in Todd’s wacky journey. In truth, Bob-Waksberg says, he is constantly discovering things about all the characters and adjusting accordingly. “Todd is in many ways a living, breathing thing. All the facts that exist about him are what we have seen and what we can interpret in the show, and there might be more facts still to discover.”

Similarly, appreciating a show about a horse with depression doesn’t actually mean you’re improving your own terrible conduct or mental state – you’re just making yourself feel good by noticing those traits somewhere else. In a small way this new series of BoJack skewers our complacency.
Thanks to recent events, like Louis C.K. and Aziz Ansari’s returns to standup, the storyline is surprisingly up-to-the-minute for an animated series, which otherwise makes some funny and incisive points out how male celebrities like BoJack benefit from adopting a feminist persona, whether they actually are or not. <...> - by ScreenRant [Kevin Yeoman]
This season, maybe the show's darkest, features an epiphanic turn from Alison Brie, who brings to the recently divorced Diane, still writing “content” for a website aimed at millennial women, a profound pathos, by turns sorrowful and seething.

It helps that the voice work remains unmatched, with notable new guest stars including Stephanie Beatriz (who at certain points totally steals the season), Hong Chao, Daveed Diggs, Issa Rae, Brian Tyree Henry, Wanda Sykes, and Bobby Cannavale.

The special guests keep getting better with Stephanie Beatriz, Rami Malek, Issae Rae and Wanda Sykes all appearing and having brushes with the fragile ego of Bojack Horseman (Will Arnet) as he stars as a detective in a film noir television series created by a clueless and hugely sexist idiot who thinks he's a god. <...> - by The List [Katherine McLaughlin]
Most encouragingly, a return to the personal dynamics of old doesn’t mean that we’ve abandoned the work done when they drifted out of BoJack’s orbit.
