In the fourth season of the critically-acclaimed dark comedy, Bojack Horseman is back and is still trying to figure out the meaning of life.
Last season, Bojack (voiced by Will Arnett) was driving away from Los Angeles and his career after a tragic loss. This season, the main theme of this season is time, as Bojack revisits his past, as well as discover a revelation that will change his life for good.
Meanwhile, Mr. Peanutbutter (voiced by Paul F. Tompkins) is running for governor of California, even though he has no experience. This causes a strain on his marriage with Diane Nguyen (voiced by Allison Brie). Princess Carolyn (voiced by Amy Sedaris) is attempting to have a child, and Todd (voiced by Aaron Paul) tries to figure out his sexuality and a new business idea after his previous disaster.
This season focuses on the character development of the supporting cast more than Bojack himself.
There is still fantastic development for Bojack Horseman, who is one of the most complex characters on TV right now. However, by developing the supporting cast even more, it helps each character on the show differentiate themselves more, and has the audience care for them.
Another theme of this season is family. One of the most heartbreaking developments to happen this season is when viewers find out about Bojack’s past, which includes flashbacks to his mother’s childhood and marriage. In the second-to-last episode, it reveals the past of Bojack’s mother, who has always been a very cold towards Bojack. However, with this episode, it shows how she became who she is now, and it is absolutely heart-wrenching.
Bojack Horseman has still got it, even after a brilliant third season. It has shown to be one of the greatest animated shows of all time, and it is not slowing down anytime soon.
