I heard it was a good show from some people, I watched the first few episodes, and I couldn't disagree more. I can't even believe I forced myself to keep watching after the first boring, immature, and just plain weird 10 minutes. Now I'm not one to judge based on maturity of content, but the first few "jokes" revolved around farts and an itchy crotch... and they weren't even funny! Bob always sounds depressed even when he's supposed to be excited, and the rest of the voice acting makes me want to shoot myself. I have no idea why people still watch this show... I would rather watch American Dad (which isn't even that funny), Family guy, or South Park (best show n/a). South Park can be pretty immature, but it constantly keeps me laughing, and not all of the characters sound like whiny nagging bitches. Would rate it a 0 if I could.
Plot: From the Loren Bouchard, co-creator of Home Movies comes this animated comedy series about a burger flipper from a seaside East Coast />
Opinion: I think this is a great but overrated show. To be honest, people are praising this show too much and it even got won something earlier this month. At first, when I wrote this review back in 2011, I thought it was an okay show, but now it's slightly improves as the years went on. But it is still not the BEST animation domination show ever. People say that it is, but to me I think it's the two Seth MacFarlane cartoons Family Guy and American Dad because they make me laugh more than Bob's Burgers. My pros for this show are quite lower than the other Animation Domination shows. The voice acting is decent (I'll tell you why it's not great/superb), some of the characters are funny, hilarious sexual jokes. great plot (seriously, I love the idea of a burger joint so that's what make my score a little higher), and the artwork. Prepare for some problems on Bob's Burgers that prevent me from being a fan of the shows. First of all, there are some certain characters I can't stand such Louise, Hugo, and Tammy (those are the main example) since they're all jerks. Second, the show's writing is so so but what I hate is they have to make the characters so dramatic,. Seriously, do we need to heard screaming and shouting in almost every single episode. That's why Louise annoy me, she's always screaming at the top of her lungs. Same thing to Gene. Third, Tina has this Uhhhhhhh... Remember that from the episode where she wreck the car? Yes I did a bit and you know why that is problem. The groaning is such a nuisance. That's why Tina is NOT my favorite character, while she has her moments of being funny, she usually annoying but not as much as Louise and (sometimes) Gene. Fourth, the music is really poor. I don't know why, but I'm just not a fan of it. Why do I feel like watching Phineas and Ferb when there's a musical numbers. This is not a Disney Channel show, writers. The theme song is OK, not as awesome as FG, American Dad, and the Simpsons theme />
Story: I like the idea of a burger point especially the burger of the days. The plots are usually great. 9/10
Writing: Hit or miss because it depends on the episode. If an episode is okay, this would be the effect. If an episode is less than that, it's mainly miss since the jokes just fall flat. If an episode is excellent is hit and occasionally miss. I'm not a fan of the show's writing because it's has a smaller writing team if you compare to American Dad (around 13), Family Guy (20 something), and the Simpons (a lot). My favorite writer was Scott Jacobson, but his writing are going downhill, so now it's the Molynuex sisters (they're overrated lady writers though). 6/10
Humor: See writing. The humor can be great especially if there's a sexual joke somewhere. Some of the puns are funny. However, due to its dramatic nature, the humor usually fall flat. 7.5/10
Drama: Really bad except the season 4 two part finale. The writers need to realize that drama isn't funny. The characters usually act like it's the end of the world when they overreact. 1/10
Voice acting: Why the voice acting decent? Two reasons: One, very realistic voices on the family except John Roberts. I always heard Jon Benjamin, Kristen, Dan Mintz, and Eugene's voices on several videos and they sound exactly their characters (especially the first two). Second, what's up with guys voicing female characters? As if two female characters voiced by a guy wasn't enough, we got more female character voiced by guys. Like why? It doesn't even sounds feminine. John Roberts is the best at it because he tried to sound feminine. The others try no effort as sounding feminine at all especially Dan Mintz's Tina and Larry Murphy's Edith and Gretchen. But other than those, the voice acting is not that bad. I like Teddy's voice the best as well as Felix's voice (especially when he gets mad). 7/10
Art: Meh, this art style influenced Sanjay and Craig for no reason and it's because former (and original) character designer Jay Howell worked on this show before creating SJC. I'm not a fan of the character design at all. They all look weird. Art style is so so and compared the other animation domination shows, it's not even on the perfect side. Background are badly painted and designed at all, but they got a little better. The colors are the saving grace of the art in Bob's Burgers. The art department is mediocre at best. 5.5/10
Animation: I got to say, animation is better than the art for sure, but it still not the best. When the show starts, it was animated in Flash and it was poorly done. By Seasons 2 and 3, it was slightly better but not good enough, Finally Season 4 got improved animation in some of the episodes but otherwise still stiff animation. 7/10
Last appeal: It's popular so I won't be surprised if it last as long as the other three aforementioned Animation Domination shows. 10/10
All I say is Bob's Burgers is a great show and it's obviously recommended due to the high fanbase. However, the show does has its moments of bad especially the first episode. as well as emphasizing too much screaming which ruins my 10 score. This show will gets a 8.5/10 from me.
FUNNY AS HELL. I used to not like it. Then it started to grow on me a bit more and I started enjoying the improvements in comedy. The writers started adding there own comedy gags to the show, which made it fresh and viewable.
This show is just amazing, I've NEVER been bored with the story line so far, the characters are just so much more real and hilarious. Honestly, i look forward to this show more than family guy or the Simpsons, maybe its time for the Simpsons to go, or family guy in other words... ITS FRESH, ITS NEW AND ITS REALLY EXCITING.
I looked up this show because I was curious with other peoples opinions. I was surprised. How could someone dislike this show? Well, I know why. It's because they're probably just ignorant douches and don't know authentic comedy except for what they've been fed for so long already. I wouldn't compare this show to anything else because its just on a whole new front on its own. (maybe kinda related to the Simpsons but only partly). Im so glad I stumbled upon this. At first when I watched it during season 1 I kinda put it off because it didn't seem that interesting. BUT MAN.. how great it has become. Im kinda glad I didn't start watching until season 3 because I was the happiest just binge watching to catch up. Now I'm just dying until every new episode comes out and I just wish they were longer. Man... Also, if Lee Newton loves this show (one of the best people I'd think is an expert in comedy) then everyone who dislikes it I just feel bad for. Right now, id put this show as my #1 tv show. If I get to finally cutting the cord or if my cable provider ever decided to bring A la carte, I'd choose this for sure. I also have to mention that practically every episode is quality. I thank the creators because they're not half assing anything here. (Or maybe they are? Maybe they're just that good lol)
not even going to compare this pathetic excuse for a comedy to Family Guy or American Dad, because this show fails even compared to The Cleveland Show. The animation is lazy, the voice acting is horrible (especially each and every female character), and quite frankly, in the 15 episodes that I have watched I probably laughed twice maybe three times. I mean an episode about a serial pooper what the heck is that! I'd much rather watch Family Guy, American Dad, The Simpsons or hell even the Cleveland Show than I would this abomination. I honestly don't see how any American can find this entertaining (maybe British people, but I don't get most British humor). If I could, I would give it 0 stars.
Did someone REALLY just say that Family Guy---the TV show that revolves around potty humor and has been absolute shit since '07-'08 is more "mature" than Bob's Burgers! LMFAO That's a freaking riot.
Anyway, I used to snub this show as well, but took the time to watch it once it came onto the Adult Swim line-up. It's actually a pretty good show and probably one of the most underrated in the current Fox lineup. The characters are generally tolerable. The jokes aren't as "out there" as Seth's shows, but they're pretty funny nonetheless. Only rating it an 8.5 because it has a few stale episodes once in a blue moon and the butt jokes get really annoying.
Bobs Burgers is a unique show unlike Family Guy that is just ignorant Bob Burgers is funny and not full of dirty one of my favorite shows on Fox and its not fake like other shows that bring up time travel or any of that shit so ya i like it.
That's right you all fail at life! Anyways this is a pretty decent show. It's not as bad as everyone says but it's not the best adult cartoon right now (Rick and Morty is). Anyways this is about a guy and his wife and kids that open a burger joint. Their kids also are a important part of the show too. It's pretty good and can be a little funny and times. Ignore the butthurt trolls who only want attention and nothing else.
This must be the 2nd best animated show on Fox right after the Simpsons. I admit the show had a weak start but then it bounced back in humor and quality. The voice acting is rather and I think all 5 main characters are likable. Even the small role characters are worthy of notice. Although I dont like a few, most of the episodes are something I would watch on a day when I`m bored.
Bobs Burgers has quickly become my favorite cartoon of all time. It is so simple yet complex, being able to explore so many themes that appeal to all audiences. There are so many subtle jokes that only true fans can appreciate, such as Tina's bed thrashing and bob's man crushes. Honestly, there is no other show that can pull together animation, humor, and emotional significance quite as well as Bob and his Burgers can. Although there are some pretty let-downish episodes with an occasional awkward-as-hell song/scene, the show is just so relevant that a fan like me simply just can't stop loving it.
Excellent show. I appreciate how the jokes on the show are actually related to the plot instead of simply throwing in a slew of forced references. That aspect was quite refreshing. The characters are extremely likeable, but that's really up to the viewer. Additionally, are people really complaining about the few fart jokes on the show considering how crude so many other series are. The show itself is about a family and it's cool how they work the parent's script realistically around the children (discretion). Although of course, there are exceptions (which just make it even more realistic). The show jumps from G-rated to 14A so much it's hilarious.
Honestly, it's good. Watch it for more than 2-3 episodes, and you'll see how awesome it is.
I watched one episode of this crap and I absolutely hate it. There's nothing funny about it,the voices are irritating,and the characters look like painted bowling pins I didn't laugh once while watching it. At least all of Fox's other animated shows have some redeeming quality. This has none.
It was terrible. I can't believe this is going to get at least 5 seasons
Bob's Burgers is one of those irritating shows on FOX in which most of the episodes are terrible, then end up throwing a curve ball of a great episode (such as the food truck one). Too bad that those great ones are few and far between. What is a miracle is that Bob's Burgers has lasted as long as it has, which is now in its fourth season as of Fall 2013. I'll never, for the life of me, understand why Louise has to wear those pink rabbit ears throughout every second of each was more easily understood when Moth Man (aka Arthur, the accountant) wore bunny ears as a superhero on the long-cancelled "The Tick" series; but Louise looks like an utter freak. If I never see another "Bob's Burgers" episode on FOX, I won't have missed much.
UPDATE: You know you're getting old when you starting watching "Bob's Burgers" in reruns. Ugh!
There is so much I could say, but Im into this baazar type humor and the kids crack me up. The fact that the whole show is crusty is why I love it so much. The voice acting and animation just add to the insanity, its great. I literally cant explain it ^_^ I'll watch Bobs Burgers reruns over a Family Guy re run.. and that says A LOT! <3 Too bad the promos turned me off from it when it first premiered but I couldnt be happier that I gave it a shot this year!
The best animated series to come out since South Park. I'd take a rerun of Bob's Burgers over a new Family Guy episode. I cant even watch nearly all the animated series they have out because they are so obscure and weird. The characters are perfect despite other reviews, every character is likeable unlike other shows. Very well done, my new favorite. Finally don't have to pretend to enjoy watching Family Guy, Cleveland Show, and American Dad all the time. WE NEED MORE EPISODES!!!
i really like this show its really funny when i saw the preview for this i was a bit sceptical probably because of the animation but i gave it a shot since i heard it was really good and i enjoyed it i found it really funny even though this show is not as funny as the simpsons family guy or american dad but i still really like it i don't think i've seen a bad episode of this yet so yeah its really enjoyable
This show annoys the piss out of me. I HAD to stop it after episode 3 of season one. I started watching because of that Archer cross-over, I naturally assumed that this show had to be just as brilliant to be referenced. Wow was I wrong.
The wife and eldest daughter are voiced by men, both of whom seem to be doing the most annoying voices they possibly can (which is honestly mildly sexist. I mean the show has three female characters and only ONE of them is voiced by a girl, and she's EXTREMELY annoying, and the rest are men being as annoying and naggy as they can?), and the son is basically what I would expect a middle-school aged Family Guy fan to act like (I get they're your audience, but you shouldn't write one of the annoying little fucks in to your show).
Even H. Jon Benjamin's smooth sarcastic tones can't save would-be-Homer Bob from coming off as boring... Especially when he seems to be going through the exact same motions as every other animation father: Kids messing up his life, annoyed that his wife's family is coming to visit, having 'The Shining" flashback that I have seriously seen in EVERY other Animated Sitcom ever (Let's do the list: Simpsons, check, Family Guy, check, South Park, check).
So far the shows main jokes seem to have been about fart noises, cow shit, and pooping yourself, which clearly just shows a fine maturity about the whole affair.
Don't get me wrong, I'm a long time South Park fan, so I'm not offended by such humor, but humor like that belongs in the background of deep plot based comedy which this series never really hits. That said: at least it tries, unlike Family Guy, and I've even heard it gets better in the second season, but with characters this chronically annoying I'll certainly never find out.
Derivative annoying garbage designed for chronically boring and unfunny people.
Archer brought me here, but I can't help but feel it only did so because it wanted me to come running back into it's arms all the more aware of what a gem it is.
