I read a lot of great things about Bob’s Burgers over the last couple of years but I kind of refused to believe it because Fox animated shows (aside from The Simpsons on occasion) really aren’t my thing. Turns out though that Bob’s Burgers is about as far from Family Guy as you can get. It is hilarious, it is sweet, it has a family that love each other despite everyone being just a little bit weird and it does pop culture parodies like no other series right now.
I’m really glad I gave Bob’s Burgers a chance and that I stuck with it because over the course of its early season it really becomes something fun and now as the fifth season really has gotten under-way it is one of the shows I really look forward to watching every week.
Favourite episodes: World Wharf II: The Wharfening (or How Bob Saves/Destroys the Town – Part II) / Dawn of the Peck
