Bob's Burgers: Season 1

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.Read more ›
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!
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.

So far so good -- very funny, sometimes odd, it's the only series she'll watch with me that's goofy!Published 20 days ago by funkihunter
Granted, I'm not really a cartoon fan, but I thought I'd give this a try. The first off-putting thing were the voices. They were distracting and didn't fit the characters. Read morePublished 22 days ago by Amazon Customer
