    Awesome show. Very funny without having drug, violence, or sex references (most of the time.) The characters are awesome. New and fresh show, something different IMO. I love it and hope it doesn't get canceled. Full Review »

    The Belchers get to highlight each family member well but the kids get the biggest laughs. Recurring appearances by Kevin Kline and Megan Mullaly are also well used. This is really the funniest season to date. Full Review »

    An exceptional first season and an excellent, albeit short—9 episodes—second season, Bob's Burgers eventually became one of the smartest, funniest, and memorable animated sitcoms in recent years. While Seth McFarlane's long-running Family Guy continues to show no sign of substance beyond shock value—Asians and homosexuals all act according to their signature stereotype, we get it—and The Simpsons... well, it's the father of all animated sitcoms and like all fathers, they lose shape, Bob's Burgers' has well-established its sense of humor without exploiting its adult rating.

    The voice actors' deadpan delivery of some of the series' weirdest lines yet—Tina Belcher has become one of my favorite cartoon characters of all time—is Bob's Burgers' greatest highlight, especially in season 3. Though character development hasn't dug down into the depth and originality of, let's say, Futurama, each member of the Belcher family received their own starring role without ever outshining each other. The obscure pop culture references—references to Topsy, the elephant and Rorschach from Alan Moore's Watchmen included—and witty dialogue are the icing on the cake, or in this case, the condements on the burgars.
