'BoJack Horseman' Season 6 Finale's gut-wrenching ending encourages fans to face their fears: 'End the cycle'
With its final episode titled 'Nice While It Lasted', the show closed the doors to crippling self-doubt, narcissism, drug addiction and human existential crises with a road to redemption
The talking horse from 'BoJack Horseman' left a heart-shaped hole in many lives as the final season wrapped with the last set of eight episodes on Netflix.
Ever since the show debuted in 2014, it snuck a special space on the digital platform. With its final episode titled 'Nice While It Lasted', it closed the doors to crippling self-doubt, narcissism, drug addiction and human existential crisis with a road to redemption.
What started as an internal journey of looking deeper into souls for many fans hit its finish line on January 31. Social media is abuzz with the questions that still linger in many minds. "So many questions after the @BoJackHorseman finale, such a great ending to an amazing show. I need more!!!!" one fan wrote and another said, "Saw the final episode of #BoJackHorseman. A bittersweet but great ending of a show. Thanks for all the laughs and tears!"
Many spoke about all the things they would miss and many hoped they could watch more episodes. "Never thought I'd live to see the words Professor Horseman. But stranger things do happen," one tweet read and another said, "The finale for #BoJackHorseman felt a bit like something from out of Wong Fu Productions and got me feeling some kinda way. It was nice while it lasted. And I think that's wonderful."
"Still I can't help but feel that #BoJackHorseman wanted to end after a few more episodes," one fan confessed, adding, "I can tell that the staff got kinda screwed over cuz a few more episodes would have given a better pacing but still, I think it's a show that will be remembered for many years to come." Another viewer wrote how he was an "absolute mess" after watching the show. "So #BoJackHorseman final episodes premiered this morning so naturally I watched them all before work and now I'm an absolute mess."
But for umpteen fans, the show paved a way to open up about their insecurities, internal battles, and biggest fears. "I will especially miss Diane Nguyen who scarily embodied my self-hatred, my frustrations, and translated my inner thoughts which I can never put together. And like her, I am also working on my issues every day until everything gets better. #BoJackHorseman," one fan said and another posted, "I just want to thank this show for calling out most of the bullshit I do in life. The truth bombs and self-deprecating quotes were gut-wrenching but eye-opening."
"#BoJackHorseman semi spoilers. God the show ends on such a mellow and open note. That life goes on for these people and who knows what the future will hold. I still have questions such as what was written in that letter and how are the other characters doing," one tweet read and another said, "If you haven’t hopped on the #BoJackHorseman train, please do. This show has given me so much over the last few years, and I’m so sad to see it end but so grateful to have experienced it. Accept responsibility. Discover your traumas. Build and grow past them. End the cycle."
Many, however, are not satisfied with the end. "Not sure how I feel about the end. It was good, but I don't feel satisfied," one fan blurted out. Some simply paid their tributes. "#BoJackHorseman you will be missed, forever. You were the real original in OMFG comedy!"
With the deep connection and relatability, 'BoJack Horseman' will be recounted as a major gamechanger and will carry on its legacy for many generations to come.
