the entire point of the final episode is that the second-to-final is an incredibly dumb trope where bojack has his bad actions catch up with him, and the audience has the relief of feeling sympathy with him because it is safe and allowed now that his comeuppance had arrived. this is entirely contrary to the theme of the show however, where bojack is an incredibly real hollywood monster who will never face permanent consequences and who will continue to inflict suffering on himself and everyone else forever.

the final episode is vital.

e: should spoiler that a bit i guess.

agreed re importance of final episode but

everyone else (except pb) cuts him out of their life, and their life goes on without him; not the first time that happened (eg herb having a full life etc).

thereís more going on than standard premium cable antihero californiacation and i think the creator tried to emphasize over the course of the show how you should not identify with bojack, but i get that not everyone is going to read it that way

and Iím sympathetic to the argument that the depiction is glamorizes it; eg no such thing as an anti-war movie

lost sputtered out around season 3 because you can't write a story for a potentially infinite length of time. at that point the episodes got so trash they were able to go to the suits and negotiate how much longer the series would last, and then the plot started moving again

they still beefed the ending, of course. it was so bad and so famously bad that the joker makes fun of it in one of the batman video games

truly when youíve lost gamer joker, youíve lost society

I was one of those kids who liked Starship Troopers at face value, and only found out years later how dumb I am. In response I now don't trust any media because it might be the most scathing piss-take in a generation.

That said, Light Brigade reminded me of Starship Troopers and I liked it at face value.

tbf the number of contemporary reviewers who missed it is pretty high

an easy mistake to make given that itís 90%+ similar to avg space sci fi shoot em up
