|BOJACK HORSEMANBOJACK HORSEMASEASON 6|
Even though it's my favorite show of the 2010s, and my second favorite show ever, it took me two weeks to watch the final season of BoJack Horseman. I was not ready to say goodbye to BoJack, to Diane, to Todd, to Mr. Peanutbutter, to Princess Carolyn, to Pickles, to Officer Meow Meow Fuzzyface, to Character Actress Margo Martindale, to Hollyhock Manheim-Mannheim-Guerrero-Robinson-Zilberschlag-Hsung-Fonzerelli-McQuack, and especially to Vincent Adultman. BoJack, both the character and show, brought me so much happiness and sadness but, like, the good, cathartic kind that I wasn't ready to say goodbye — once I finished those final eight episodes, there would be no more Todd schemes to look forward or one of Diane's depressive spirals to dread which is to say, relate to. But after two weeks of the final season being out in the world, and multiple near-misses of having it being spoiled for me, I finally pressed play.
Here are the five stages of grief shoutout to Elisabeth Kübler-Ross, whose BoJack name would be something like Elisabeth Kookaburra-Ross I went through in saying goodbye. This is for BoJack Horseman, but it could apply to any favorite TV show.
Every old show comes back in some form. Friends is getting a reunion special. Roseanne turned into Roseanne 2.0 which turned into The Conners. A Gossip Girl spin-off is part of HBO Max's programming block. Walker, Texas Ranger is now Walker. If Alf is able to return from Melmac, in Pog form or otherwise, then the BoJack reboot will certainly be announced any day. I'd even settle for a new Horsin' Around special.
Why did BoJack Horseman have to end when there are so many anonymous and/or bad shows on Netflix? This shouldn't be. Would anyone really protest if 13 Reasons Why here's one reason why this show should have ended after season one: it's not good, Lost in Space I prefer the movie with Matt LeBlanc, thank you very much, What/If now we know the answer to “what if a show with a two-time Oscar winner premiered and no one cared?”, V Wars literally never heard of this, and it's my job to cover television, Locke & Key keep the door shut, I say!, After Life I can't wait until after it's canceled, I Am Not Okay with This I am not okay with this show, and The Boss Baby: Back in Business actually... this one is good all went away? I'm pissed that Netflix won't cancel those shows and use some of that saved money on one more season of BoJack.
Dear Ted Sarandos,
If you bring back BoJack Horseman, I'll watch two minutes, enough to count as a view, of every Netflix movie that comes out. Yes, even Bright 2. Just 10 more episodes, that's all I'm asking. Oh yeah, and bring back Tuca and Bertie, too.
Sincerely, Josh Kurp...
A doctor has been murdered, radioactive material has been stolen from a lab, and domestic terrorists seem hellbent on using it to hold the city hostage. It’s all just another day in Bosch‘s Los Angeles, where Detective Hieronymus “Harry” Bosch Titus Welliver, who also appeared in Lost and The Town and his team are all that stands between the blissfully ignorant city residents and their total destruction.
Amazon Prime Video has released a new Bosch season 6 trailer, giving us our best look yet at the next set of challenges the weary detective has to face. Check it out below.Bosch Season 6 Trailer
Bosch has been the lead character in 21 of author Michael Connelly’s books so far, and in the past, disparate elements from multiple books have often come together to provide the inspiration for each season. But season 6 seems like a direct riff on the 2007 novel The Overlook, the thirteenth of Connelly’s Bosch stories. Here’s the description of that book from Amazon:
In his first case with the Homicide Special Squad, LAPD Detective Harry Bosch must follow his instincts to stop a killer who could destroy the entire city - even as the FBI works against him.
Near Mulholland Drive, Dr. Stanley Kent is found shot twice in the back of the head. It’s the case LAPD detective Harry Bosch has been waiting for, his first since being recruited to the Homicide Special Squad. When he discovers that Kent had access to dangerous radioactive substances, what begins as a routine investigation becomes something darker, more deadly, and frighteningly urgent. Bosch is soon in conflict with not only his superiors but the FBI, which thinks the case is too important for just a cop. Complicating his job even more is the presence of Agent Rachel Walling, his onetime lover. Now guarding one slim advantage, Bosch relentlessly follows his own instincts, hoping they are still sharp enough to find the truth - and a killer who can annihilate an entire city.
Connelly, who splits time between Los Angeles and Tampa, Florida, told the Tampa Bay Times that this season also includes some elements from his 2017 book Dark Sacred Night – although that story’s protagonist, Renée Ballard, won’t appear in the series; instead, we’ll just be getting “Bosch’s side of the narrative,” he said.
All ten episodes of Bosch season 6 will be available to stream on Amazon Prime Video starting on April 17, 2020. Better enjoy it while it lasts, Boschheads: the series is officially ending with season 7....
