5 worst moments of Bojack Horseman

Like Todd said to Bojack “It’s you. Alright? It’s you”

Bojack has been a real piece of s**t, in his own words. Being awful and Bojack go hand in hand. Bojack Horseman is a gut-wrenching animated series and Bojack has a lot to apologise for.

A self-loathing individual, Bojack is a master of self-destruction. Thoroughly incapable of taking accountability for his actions, placing blame on misfortunes, Bojack is not the typical good guy. More precisely, he can’t even be considered a good person for the majority of the show. But there’s a fine line where you see him as the sympathetic protagonist or like an unforgivable narcissist.

Bojack is majorly flawed. Like his mother Beatrice had said that he was” born broken”. A lot of the awfulness comes from the terrible upbringing, toxic parenting, but Bojack gets meaner, sadder, more destructive as he gets older. Whatever the reason, there are countless bad thing Bojack has done.
