The best show I'm assuming you aren't watching: Bob's Burgers

Is anybody else watching this show?!?

It is part of Fox’s Animation Domination block and it is absolutely hilarious. The animation style is a bit…off, which I know can bug some people, but I think the writing is top notch and the voice acting is wonderfully hilarious!

I recommend anybody and everybody to watch this!

I love it, but I also tend to love most shows Loren Bouchard puts out, which is why the animation doesn’t phase me as much. I’m just happy it’s not Squiggle-vision. Bob’s Burgers is the best show on that block, imo.

I don’t think I’ve seen every episode, but I watch it from time to time. Some are pretty funny, some are less so. I liked some bits of the hostage one from two weeks ago (Robot College!), but I wasn’t that impressed by the synchronized swimming one from last week.

Bob’s Burgers is the best thing on television in the past 30 years. I think it is absolute genius.

It’s alright. The voices irritate the hell out of me for some reason, so I can’t get into it as much as I’d like.

It’s great! Watched all of last season and was happy to see them come back. So far the episodes this season have been great too.

Love it, love the voice actors, particularly H. Jon Benjamin and Kristen Schaal.

Bob’s Burgers is genius. As was said above, it’s by far the best thing on the whole Animation Domination schedule. H Jon Benjamin is a superior vocal talent, and Kristen Schaal’s really good, too, but I think the whole cast just constantly brings their A game every single episode.

Huh, I didn’t even know this show existed.

I’ve watched half an episode and it’s really funny. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!

I think it’s a brilliant notion. Who ever thought that an animated show about a not-very-bright working stiff guy in a dead-end job with three loser kids and a wife with a screechy voice could ever possibly become a hit? Yes, Bob’s Burgers definitely fills a yawning chasm in Fox’s Sunday night line-up.

I keep getting distracted, thinking Archer has retired and married to open a burger joint!

I guess it either speaks well of the show or poorly of me that I never noticed that until you pointed it out. :slight_smile:

Yes. Love.

Jon Benjamin and Kristen Schaal is like chocolate & peanut butter to me.

I watch it and I find it funny.

Thank you.

not sure how snarky this is supposed to be… but it brings up a good point. How is every animated show that features a family automatically a copy of The Simpsons, or of Family Guy? Wow, they both have a family, and are animated. That’s it. How many live action shows feature a family? Are they all clones of eachother? well, a lot are, but they aren’t by definition because they’re live-action and feature a family.

When it really comes down to writing a good script for a show/sitcom or whatever, does it really matter if it’s animated or not?? I see the success of Greg Daniels, moving from writing The Simpsons & producing King Of The Hill, then smoothly moving to The Office - as a pretty fair illustration of this. King of The Hill could easily have been done with live action actors. Same with Bob’s Burgers.

I also can’t watch long enough to find out if I like it because it is wrong to have Archer’s voice coming out of that picture.

I thought the 1st episode was mediocre at best, but the second was much better.

I liked the most recent episodes (taffy factory treasure, and “independant study” sychronized swimming)


I think you mean Coach McGurk.

Archer as a fat washed up burger flipper still erks me, but yeah, it’s a good show.

That’s my problem with Archer (which I also find hilarious).

Anyway, I love Bob’s Burgers.
