I must admit, I strongly disliked the first episode. I turned it off twice on Hulu before finally finishing it. I just barely convinced myself to watch the second episode, and... it was inspired. Bob pretends to be stuck in the walls of his house to escape his family, and slowly goes insane (mostly because he has nowhere to poop). Consistently original and very funny. And most subsequent episodes were equally quaint and amusing.

Over time I realized there were a few fundamental reasons I liked this series more than a lot of other comedy shows around, especially Seth MacFarlane's.

#1: The family is nice to each other, despite how kooky they all are. They are supportive, and clearly accept one other implicitly. That to me is a breath of fresh air in today's comedic landscape. A year or two ago I gave up on Family Guy (after the episode where Quagmire insinuated he would have sex with his daughter once she turned 18) because I was just fatigued by the constant graphic violence and generally crappy treatment of one character to another. American Dad has sadly followed suit after staying pretty palatable for a long time - have you watched an episode of that lately? Count how often one character yells at one another, or says something really hurtful, it's like every 10 seconds. It's just tiresome and a shame, really, because the characters are original and interesting; I just don't see why they have to assault our sense of decency over and over again to make us laugh. Bob's Burger's doesn't do that, it's more like Futurama, where the jokes come from situations and goofy character choices/opinions.

#2: Bob is the straight man, unlike the crazy ones like Homer Simpson and Peter Griffin.

Bob's Burgers in one of those shows not everyone is going to love. But, this quirky little show always makes me chuckle.
This show really is a standout among the other shows in Fox's Sunday night animation line up. The animation isn't pristine, but that really adds to the charm of the show. What really stands out here are the wonderful character's voices. I'm so glad that Fox has picked it up for a second season. Hopefully it will find a following and will stick around for awhile.

I must admit, when I saw the previews for "Bob's Burgers" I was less than impressed. The animation was reminiscent of doodles, and when I saw the children I asked myself which one of these kids would be the answer to Bart, Stewie or Rollo. Well, when I caught a couple of episodes, I must admit that I was intrigued for reasons unknown. And when the series came out on DVD, I found myself buying it... and now I am HOOKED!

Bob is the anti-Homer/Peter. He's a hard-working man doing what he can to support his eclectic family. his wife Linda, while a very loving mom and wife, is at times clueless. The kids tend to be predictable, but little Louise with her rabbit-ears hat is a stand-out! And the other characters are hilarious. What really reeled me in was the dinner theatre episode; did anybody else laugh to the point of tears when Officer Julia flying tackled the robber?!?

I don't watch TV because I work long hours with little time off, but I am anxiously awaiting the next season! Just when I thought "Allan Gregory" ruined adult animation, "Bob's Burgers" renewed my faith!

I love the whole enchilada about this series and I look forward to reading the blackboard specials that always have a movie based theme. I feel this one smacks abit like Dr. Katz but without the wiggles, and thats a good thing- I love the humor

I love, love, love Bob's Burgers - especially the short season 2. This DVD set is great - it has the pilot and history of the show's development. That was insightful and entertaining. The only bummer which is a risk with any standard DVD is that there is some artifacting on the shows when watching on an HD TV. This is to be expected, but after watching the shows in HD on Netflix and Hulu, it was jarring to say the least, but not unwatchable. The commentary and bonus features make this a must have for any fan of the show, but if it is available on BluRay, it would be worth the difference. Even though it sounds snobbish, seeing the lines as crisp as the artists intended is a treat and joy to watch! Support the show!

When I first heard that Jon "The Hammer" Benjamin would be heading the cast of "Bob's Burgers", I was ecstatic. Benjamin is one of the greatest voice actors of our generation, belonging in a hall of fame with veterans like Seth MacFarlane and Dan Castellaneta. His voice acting--as always--was hilarious and made Bob 'one of us'. Luckily, the show isn't carried on just his voice. While I personally am not familiar with the rest of the voices, but Dan Mintz, Eugene Mirman, John Roberts and Kristen Schaal all did very well on their voices. Also, bold choice using a majority male voice talent to play the women. Usually, it's the other way around. Anyway, the show is a great watch, I seemed to have already attached myself to Gene; he's pretty funny, and it's ironically(between the longest running adult animated show of all time and the boldest adult animated show of all time), a good show for the whole family.
