Bob’s Burgers (2011-Present)


Plot Summary: Bob’s Burgers centers on the Belcher family (consists of Bob, Linda, Tina, Gene and Louise) who own a hamburger restaurant. Bob’s burgers are really delicious and appear to be better than his rivals’ but when it comes to selling burgers, his kids aren’t really helpful, as more customers head over to Jimmy Pesto’s restaurant. Written by Campbell Talaepa

Creator: Loren Bouchard

Stars: H. Jon Benjamin, Dan Mintz and Eugene Mirman

Serious Jest: (Casual Watch)  This animated comedy is witty, and it will leave you with a silly grin on your face, although the ROTFLYAOs are fewer and farther between.  Benjamin is definitely one of my favorite voice actors on TV today, and I’ve liked Kristen Schaal ever since The Flight of the Conchords.  I’m impressed by the writers’ ability to keep thinking of creative names for specialty burgers; the board even changes multiple times every episode!  It’s also interesting to see what establishment goes out of business next door during the opening credits every episode, kind of like the ever-changing couch sequence in The Simpsons‘ opening credits.  Additionally, it’s kind of funny that most of the female parts are played by men.  So far my favorite episode is Burger Boss (Season 2, Ep 4), featuring Aziz Ansari.  Catch this show when it’s on, and you’ll get some laughs out of it.
