Bob’s Burgers > Family Guy

I am a big Netflix guy.  Love binge watching and love wasting hours and hours of my life.  One show that I have gone through twice is Bob’s Burgers.  To most people who don’t look hard while watching, Bob’s Burgers may seem slow and awkward.  In reality, this show is completely full with tiny little comments and jokes that go over your head if you aren’t ready for it.  The stupidity and awkwardness of every character kill me, and yet, nobody ever talks about his show.  People talk about the dryness of The Office and say its genius, of which I agree because The Office is my favorite show of all time, but nobody appreciates the dryness of BB’s jokes.


I am watching it as I type this.  One joke that was just said was a science teacher talking to his class saying, “Okay class, today we are going to dissect bananas today.  But we only have two bananas… So break up into groups of 13….”  That’s hilarious and I don’t care what you say.  If you disagree, your wrong.  BB’s is one of the funniest shows out there.


One little ting that not many people know is that during their opening credits, it shows Bob’s restaurant with the family standing in front of it.  To the right of them is a business that has a clever business pun every episode.  Here are some of my favorites:

Those are all hilarious and must take forever to think of, and nobody even sees them.  That’s how genius these writers are.  I am very impressed.  Trust me, I do like Family Guy, but it is just full of cut away scenes with cheap jokes but Bob’s Burgers is full of clever, witty lines that will make you laugh a few hours later.  Better than an easy-way-out cut away scene joke that Family Guy always brings to the table.

Bob’s Burgers is electric and I believe that it trumps Family Guy as the funniest cartoon adult comedy on TV every day of the goddamn week.  I will stand by that until the day I die.  You got something to say about that?  Get at me.  #TeamBob

Its a fire take, I know.
