With Comic-Con at Home making the world’s biggest pop culture convention a virtual event, we’ve been covering as much as we can from the pre-recorded panels for all the movies and TV shows who decided to participate. However, Adult Swim decided to have their own virtual shindig outside of Comic-Con at Home, and Rick and Morty was among the shows having panels to tease upcoming episodes.
Since Rick and Morty is currently in production on the show’s fifth season, series co-creator could only share an unfinished clip from the upcoming fifth season to give fans a satisfying tease of what’s to come. It’s a cold open for one of the future episodes which introduces a character who is apparently Rick’s nemesis. Watch the Rick and Morty season 5 clip below for a sneak peek. Read More »

There is a doorway. At some point, we all have to step through that doorway, and explore beyond what our lives have to offer us. It’s impossible to know what’s beyond the doorway until we step through it — it could lead to a new, ethereal plane of existence, or it could lead to a grim blackness, a vast and infinite nothingness that puts a cruel period on the sentence of life. That, at least, is how the truest version of the afterlife was envisioned in the final episodes of two very distinctive, very bold, and now concluded comedies, Netflix’s BoJack Horseman and NBC’s The Good Place. Though each of these shows envisioned the end as something tangible, they did so in striking and divergent ways, with the animated show winding up as a top-to-bottom success.
This post contains spoilers for the final seasons, and final episodes, of both shows.

BoJack Horseman will soon be wrapping up its sixth and final season with a final batch of episodes debuting on Netflix on January 31. That means creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg is free to throw some shade at the home of his critically-acclaimed animated series – specifically at how the streaming service handles the end credits.
Any Netflix user can tell you that once a movie or show is over, after a few seconds of rolling a small amount of the names who worked on the given film or series, the end credits are minimized into a small window in favor of teasing a Netflix original project. That’s frustrating to Raphael Bob-Waksberg, who finds it disrespectful and hopes to work with a distributor who doesn’t treat series creators and the creative minds responsible for making movies and TV shows so flippantly.

BoJack Horseman has always been an optimistic show, even when it’s being cynical and very, very bleak. But the show’s always had an underlying feeling of hope for the future that wants you to believe its characters can get better – you may just need a jogging baboon to tell you that it gets easier. Now that we’re on the first half of the final season of the show, BoJack Horseman finally asks: can a terrible person actually achieve happiness? And more importantly, do they deserve it?
Spoilers for the new season lie ahead.

The Netflix animated series Bojack Horseman is coming to an end with the show’s sixth season. The first eight episodes of the final season just dropped on October 25 (solidifying its place as one of the best animated shows ever), and the second half of the season will arrive sometime in 2020. If you’re sad to see the series go, you can blame Netflix, who chose to cancel the series. Creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg has confirmed that the show could have continued for a couple more years before wrapping things up, but the streaming serviced decided it was time to end. Read More »

BoJack Horseman is a comedy built on incongruity. It’s an inexplicable mashup of genres and styles that absolutely should not work. As the show’s final season begins its portioned-out arrival, it’s worth celebrating how BoJack Horseman gradually became not just the best show on Netflix, but arguably one of the most incisive, emotionally raw, and darkly funny shows of the new century. Here’s a show that could’ve died on the vine in its first season, yet has become one of the very best in all of television.
