BoJack Horseman came to an end recently, drawing to a close one of Netflix’s show harrowing original shows. Sure, it was about a cartoon horse, but underneath that it was about much, much more.
Addiction, alcoholism, adultery, asexuality, abortion, abuse and lots of other topics which don’t begin with A were all covered by BoJack. Along the way, there were some quite significant gut punches too, with the show not afraid to get dark. While BoJack frequently painted himself as the ultimate victim of his own story, he’s caused more than his fair share of pain too.
That said, this isn’t about the worst thing he’s done, or even the show’s darkest moments. It’s all about those really sad events of the six seasons which had us welling up. Almost sleeping with Penny was one of BoJack’s worst moments, for example, but it’s not particularly sad, so you won’t find it here.
There’s still more than enough sadness in the BoJack universe to go around though, so it was no issue filling it up. These are the moments to have tissues ready for on a rewatch.
