Probably a 6.5/10 for me. The episode certainly had its moments. The bits with George Takei making fun of self-help nonsense were pretty hilarious, and BoJack's overzealous happiness had its charms. But the psychological stuff that's supposed to make the show a cut above is a little too facile for me. I appreciated BoJack's mom's speech on the phone at the end, because there was a realness to it that made the effect it had on BoJack believable, but her speech to child BoJack in the beginning just screamed "here's an obvious psychological motivation for BoJack!" without any subtlety or deftness to it. Plus the Princess Carolyn business with her downstairs competitor wasn't particularly funny and didn't seem to go anywhere. There were certainly some laughs here (Dianne's bit with warning people about the cable and BoJack demanding gin in particular), but the setup for the meat of the episode was a lot less interesting than the payoff.

So Bojack can't succees at his lifelong dream because he's too happy; and it only works when he is hos old depressed self-loathing self. I suppose there's a great life lesson in there.
Also don't walk on cables, it saves lives.

"What are you doing here?"

We got a section in the intro.

It seems BoJack has decided to change himself for the better. As well as this, he's begun thinking about his relationship with his mother. She's always been disappointed with him and scoffs at his efforts. It's sad.

I liked how Todd slept in the car and how BoJack tried to be more positive. To hear his mum say being broken is his birthright was heartbreaking. And to see his mother finally apologise. Wow.

IT'S GOOD.

TECHNICAL & ENJOYMENT SCORE: 7/10

"It's Command-Z." So, BoJack uses a Mac. Got it.
