Added DiffLines:

** "Feel Good Story" sets up intrigue about the Whitewhale company murdering an employee to keep them quiet. Then it's revealed that [[spoiler: the billionaire in charge of the company is perfectly comfortable admitting that he murdered the worker himself. Why is he so relaxed? Because ''congress just passed a law making it legal for billionaires to murder people.'']]

Added DiffLines:

** While Bojack destroying his old Michigan house isn't necessarily divisive, there's disagreement whether it was a callous and cruel thing to do to Eddie, or if it was the first sign of Bojack begining to improve and move on from the past.

Added DiffLines:

** The real Ruthie (the baby porcupine PC adopts at the end of Season 5) is absolutely '''adorable.''' It's hard not to 'aww'' at every scene she's in.


Added DiffLines:

* {{Squick}}: Sarah Lynn and Bojack having sex during one of her binges. Bojack has known her since she was ''three'', and their relationship is decidedly father-daughter afterwards.


** An animated work about humans and anthropomorphic animals coexisting in a story of how difficult and ruthless the celebrity life of Hollywood can be? Turner Entertainment did a more child-friendly version 17 years prior with ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance''.

Turner Entertainment did a more child-friendly version 17 years prior with ''WesternAnimation/CatsDontDance''. Funnily enough, while ''[=BoJack=] Horseman'' treats its younger cast as ChildrenAreInnocent, the adorable child star in ''Cats Don't Dance'' infamously turns out to be an EnfantTerrible.

Added DiffLines:

* ViewerGenderConfusion: Joey Pogo's androgynous pop star looks and [[CrossDressingVoices voice by]] Creator/HilarySwank had several fans assume he was a butchy woman in the trailer.

** [[SlutShaming People who enjoy sex]]. Any character who has a sex life that's better than toxic or wasn't a victim of sexual abuse is a depraved weirdo, a total doofus or a loser. Compare Todd and Yolanda's rational, articulate asexual friends to, say, Yolanda's sex positive family, who can't seem to ever talk ''or'' think about anything but sex or Emily's DumbMuscle firefighter boyfriend. Even Emily herself, while not ridiculed, is still depicted as desperate.
