moment of silence for the missed opportunities in once more with feeling without cordelia, oz and faith
faith expecting herself to have some hardcore rock ballad if anything but it ends up being a slow, sad ballad about craving acceptance and validation and the whole time she’s trying to shut herself up through various techniques like holding her hands over her face and sticking her face underwater but she won’t stop fucking sINGING
cordelia is getting SO impatient waiting for her bursting-into-song moment that she just starts singing everything without needing to. when she Finally gets her moment and the music starts swelling for her, she coughs, and realizes she’s lost her voice. fu ck.
oz. my man oz. it doesn’t affect him but no one else seems to notice?? and every time there’s a group number when the camera focuses on him it just goes Dead Silent. no singing. every scene, every song– he just looks into the camera like he’s on the office.
This...is an eleventh episode of Bojack Horseman...
Anyone who’s watched Bojack Horseman knows what I’m talking about.
The eleventh episode of each season is always the best.
It’s also always the worst:
(Incidentally it’s also always one of the most artistic.)
Without fail, the eleventh episode of each season has given us some of the most depressing, heartbreaking, numbing scenes and scenarios that make the characters and the audience feel completely miserable if not empty. They’re so hard to sit through because they make you feel raw emotions that you didn’t even know you were capable of feeling.
And episode twelve?
Episode twelve brings it back.
Each and every time.
They don’t give us the Disney endings.
Instead, each season ends on a bittersweet note. It ends with the knowledge that Bojack has been through hell and back but that he survived. No matter what happens in each season, it always ends on a hopeful note, telling the audience that it will get easier.
And it does get easier.
We have to do it every day and that’s the hard part.
