Bob's Burgers is an animated series about a man, his family and a burger joint. A third-generation restaurateur, Bob runs Bob's Burgers with the help of his uptight wife and their three underachieving kids. This season, Bob and family test-drive the food
This review is for the DVD-R version of Bob's Burgers Season 2, not the show itself. The show is great! Fox decided to release season 2 on the cheap: the jewel case is low quality, the disks are ultra low quality (they also come with scratches all over them, free of charge), cheap stickers on the front of the disks instead of what you would expect from an official release, almost no special features. I can't believe Fox has the stones to charge $23 for 9 episodes and not even produce a quality DVD set. DO NOT BUY THIS DVD!!! If this is type of garbage product that Fox is going to release for it's TV shows, they will not get another dime of my money. I'd rather keep the shows on my DVR and fast forward through commercials before I buy another DVD-R product. I urge everyone that feels the same about the DVD-R sets to write reviews about them and show the tools that run Fox home entertainment what happens when they try to cheat and steal from the people that give them money.
As for many, I am not giving negative feedback to the series. I love it. That's why I want the physical DVDs. I am instead giving negative feedback with regards to the authenticity of the product. Based upon my reading, mine appears to be a unique complaint. Yes, it is clearly of inferior quality and looks like some sort of a rip-off version. However, my real problem is that it only has the first disk. The packaging says that it is the "Complete 2nd Season" (as does the Amazon description). Both say that there should be two disks. However, the case only contained Disk 1. In fact, the case looks like it is only designed to hold a single disk. There is no second hub, nor is the single hub that is present long enough to hold two disks (as in some cheap packaging). The product was received sealed so the second disk was not removed. In short, this product was likely delivered to Amazon by the "manufacturer" with only one of the two disks present. So, while this is not technically Amazon's fault, the selection of untrustworthy vendors IS Amazon's fault. Still trying to slog through the horrendous Amazon system to see if they are willing to do anything about this.
Do not waste your money! This is a scam, the quality of the episodes is worse than illegal streaming. You'd be better off downloading from the internet. The packaging looks like it was printed on a home printer, even the writing on the discs is blurry.
And by terrible, I mean non-existent. As many reviewers have already explained, the episodes are in good quality, and they're all there from that season, but the actual physical DVD(-R) is so atrocious, you can't help but wonder if this was just bootlegged from someone else and making a killing off it. The back of the case has practically nothing on it--the front of the cage(while gratefully the same basic portrait from the 1st season cover) is actually inaccurate--two of the references are from episodes in SEASON THREE. The main menu looks(and sounds) like someone just held a tape recorder up to the TV when an episode was playing. No special features except for a small table read, which is entirely disappointing. The Season 1 DVDs were a gem most definitely worth our money and made with great love and attention. This set, however was straight armed-robbery.
Long story short, the season was great(although short), so if you want it, save time and frustration and just BUY DIGITAL. Trust us, you won't regret it.
The Belcher family is back, and this time... IT"S PERSONAL! Some of the best episodes are gathered here, and plenty of laughs to be had. Ever wonder what happens when a middle age man is forced to go to a friend's Halloween party, and the kids get their first venture in Trick-or-Treating alone? There are no Fun-sized laughs where the kids venture to, however it's not all full-size candy bars, as there is something sinister waiting for the Belcher crew. Not one to be outdone, Bob has to steal the spotlight for the Belcher's first thanksgiving, until a twist comes along, and it may change the holidays in a strange and unusual way. Finally to wrap up the year, witness when Bob meets a mannequin who came to life, and is now searching for his true love. Fans of other comedy series should certainly give Bob's burgers a go, and maybe try some of the witty concoctions Bob has to come up with.
Be sure to read the description. These are printed on demand, and are straight up fakes. The colors on the cover are weird, the video is dull, and subtitles are absent. Donate $30 to a local organization or throw it out a window. Either is better than handing your money over to this fraudulent seller.
