Bob's Burgers

#1 Post by mfunk9786 » Fri Apr 06, 2012 11:31 pm

Fans of terrific animated comedy in the vein of Home Movies rejoice! I'm thrilled to report that Bob's Burgers is absolutely hilarious. It takes a couple of episodes to get into the rhythm of things, but once you're hooked, you'll find that it has the same breezy improvisational style as Home Movies: the sort of show that you can get something unique out of whether you're watching it intently or have it on in the background and are listening to it like a radio play. The voice cast does some impeccable work, and Loren Bouchard carries his former show's charming interplay into his new endeavor - it's a lot of fun when, say, Jon Benjamin chuckles at a Eugene Mirman line reading. Watch this show! It could use your support.

Yeah, I've been watching Bob's Burgers since last year, and it's got pretty much everything Home Movies did- amazing cast, easygoing sense of rhythm, Jon Benjamin- and infinitely better animation. It's a great show.

I prefer the scragliness of Home Movie's animation to be honest. Than again that very clean digital colouring just bugs me.

I didn't mind the squigglevision of the first few episodes, but the Flash animation always just looked like a cheap web cartoon to me. Great series in any case, but not very expressively drawn.

Bob's Burgers is great, especially those stream of consciousness agruments between the little sister and her brother that are usually always the most hilarious parts! I remember particularly liking that episode from the first series where Bob and his son get addicted to all-night screenings of a gigantic series of spaghetti westerns (with 'Banjo' obviously a thinly veiled reference to the Django movies) after seeing a TV screening and then buying a huge boxset of them.

Watched last night's episode and had a few genuine LOL moments. I didn't realize at all that Kevin Kline does a supporting role from time to time.

Stiff competition :roll:

Possibly my favorite show on TV next to a few of the new shows on Comedy Central.

Are we sure domino isn't writing for this show? I just caught up with last month's season premiere, which centers on dueling elementary school musical productions of Die Hard and Working Girl, culminating in

the joint production Work Hard or Die Tryin', Girl!

All due respect, maybe in the future it'd make sense to be a little more specific with these posts since you know, the march of time rolls on

The Christmas "Duel" episode (with the giant candy cane truck) aired that night.

That was a great episode - but yeah, I mean, maybe it makes some sense to include an episode title or description in your post if you're going to throw something like that out there without much further discussion, right?

Or better yet, discuss the episode enough that it can be clear to posterity which one you were referring to. Otherwise, it's a pretty empty post anyway.

This is a problem with a lot of discussion threads for currently running TV shows, or something like the awards thread on Oscar night.

If I'd known there wouldn't be any discussion of it, I probably wouldn't have posted it in the first place. I was kind of surprised there wasn't, and just forgot about it later on honestly.
