Bojack Horseman season 5, episode 4 recap: ‘BoJack the Feminist’


Bojack Horseman introduces a new character and you are sure to despise him.

Bojack Horseman is known for tackling serious issues, and this episode focuses on sexual harassment. When a movie star by the name of Vance Waggoner is pulled over by a female police officer, things take a drastic turn when he sexually assaults her and proceeds to say he “hates Jews.”

What’s the point of introducing this horrible character? When the scene switches to Flip brainstorming who to bring on to play a dangerous character, Vance is suggested by Princess Carolyn. After he agrees to take on the role, we learn that he is being awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Forgiveness Awards where the industry basically forgives him for his wrongdoings.

During the award show, a questionable picture of Bojack is snapped and goes viral stating that he wasn’t paying attention to Vance’s speech and isn’t willing to forgive him. Princess Carolyn tries to set up multiple television appearances for Bojack so he can apologize for his facial expression, but the opposite ends up happening when Bojack unknowingly takes on the role of being a feminist.

In a conversation with Diane, Bojack realizes that Vance is not wrong about Philbert being anti-feminist and asks her to re-write the scripts. And given that Vance was no longer an option, Princess Carolyn and Flip decide to bring on Mr. Peanutbutter.
