This is a month old, but I'm just seeing it:





Now, Laura Hudson is far from the only woman who Brian Wood has harassed. And this show is still promoting Brian Wood and his work. So there are plenty of good reasons not to watch it.

But it appears that "to support Laura Hudson" is not one of them.

...that's too many negatives. To put it more clearly: if you want to boycott the DMZ TV series because Brian Wood is a shit, that's a good reason. But don't boycott it on Laura Hudson's account; she's used it as an opportunity to make lemonade.

So Bojack Horseman is over. Spoilers follow.

So, the question posited by the first half of the season - "once a truly despicable man finally finds his center, how does he redeem himself for all the damage he's done" - has been answered:

He doesn't. He can't.

And, fair. But the show is so intent on the message - "some things just can't be fixed once you realize they're broken" - that it forgets to answer: why even bother to try to go legit, then.

No wonder it's hinted Bojack is moving to become an alt-righter, the perfect place for people that want popularity and blame insufficient emotional labor from everyone around them.
