BoJack Horseman is Mentally Sick:
It is an animated program that addresses mental issues with humor. It talks about mental illness, depression, addiction, the human condition, sexuality, trauma, and self-destructive behavior. All these mental issues are portrayal by a character named BoJack Horseman; who has presented a narcissistic, alcoholic, and drug-addicted. This program does not give solid solutions for the aforementioned issues rather realistically showcases their reasons; so the viewer feels comfortable that he is not the only one in the world who is facing mental health issues. All these mental issues do not result from a single event rather a combination of internal and external elements.

When a delicate utensil falls and breaks into pieces; it’s a common practice to throw them; as those pieces have no worth. But the Japanese art of “kintsugi” has a different approach; as they use precious metal to bring the broken pieces back together. BoJack Horseman follows the same pattern. He also tries to put pieces back together. He used to blame his misdeeds on childhood trauma but now he accepts the responsibility for his behavior.
In the end, he has not evolved into a new personality rather he has been rehabilitated. Personal development and rehabilitation cannot occur over-night; it takes time as the program mention “every day it gets a little easier. But you’ve got to do it every day. That’s the hard part.” When he comes back from prison people had forgotten him and allowed him to come on entertainment’s dollar paved road to start his life again.
Past mistakes remain in you as cracks:
Aparna Nancherla as HollyHock sends a letter to BoJack which reveals that she left him. He takes Diane as his rescuer, wishes him well, and suggested that their friendship reached its end. Till the ending; the writer and audience have to think differently about the “difficult man”. In ending, Don Draper manages good terms with those who did wrong with him. He looks after his children since his ex-wife Betty died. Anna Gunn as Skyler challenged Walter’s behavior and received hate mail as a result. In the ending; he comes to know that to disappear or to drag himself down is not the way rather the cracks in his new-self remind him of the past mistakes and illuminate what he is now as a whole.
Life’s an (expletive) and then you die:
“Life’s an (expletive) and then you die,” In the last scene of BoJack with Diane; they are sitting on a marron-shingled roof, recognizing what they both are; is their last interaction with one another. She disagrees and urges him to have a look at his past cracks as fortification for the future’ offers him a correction which he accepts. “Life’s an (expletive),” she says‘ “and you keep living.”
In the latest season, he tries to commit suicide but he saves. Then he has arrested for breaking and imprisonment. The last season of BoJack Horseman has cast including Will Arnett acting as BoJack Horseman, Aaron Paul as Todd Chavez, Alison Brie as Diane Nguyen, Paul F. Tompkins as Mr. Peanutbutter, Amy Sedaris as Princess Carolyn. The audience of the season and collaborators debilitated as Netflix completed all seasons without an authentic farewell.
The season based on the realistic human condition:
The first season has more positive critics than negative but the other seasons received more critical claims. American magazine Rolling Stone titled it as “phenomenal” GQ Magazine declared it one of the best shows of the year. IndieWire commented it as the greatest TV show of all time. Its next seasons can proceed for the Netflix audience: if the Approach creator collaborates with another streaming stage. It seems preposterous for the viewers to readily accept BoJack back by those people who cared for him most.
BoJack Horseman played with emotions:
BoJack Horseman played with its audience’s emotions; it made them smile, cry, laughs, and sympathized as they felt BoJack’s issues as their life issues. This program dealt with the psychological issues of society very intelligently in the face of BoJAck.
