    It seems like it has been years since I have seen a Sunday night cartoon that can sit together with Simpsons and Family Guy, but every week I have been loving Bob's Burgers.

    Anyone else with me?

    I've seen the show and it sort of reminds me of The Oblongs from along while back. Its a OK show but IMHO its not as good as family guy or cleveland show.

    I fucking love this show. It takes a lot for a new comedy cartoon to hook me, but I've been watching this show without fail. I hope it survives into season 2. I agree that it's not up to Family Guy yet, but it's now the second anticipated Sunday show now for me.

    I watched it once. Found it a bit boring, honestly. Maybe I just saw a mediocre one.

    I'd watch it again to get a better feel for it.

    I've watched two episodes, and I haven't really grown to like it.

    Not sure which one you saw, but Hamburger Dinner Theater and Sheesh, Cab Bob have been my favorites.

    I find it usually takes a few episodes to get me hooked into something, but I really have enjoyed this show. It reminds me of Dr Katz a bit.

    It definitely has a different feel/pacing to it than the shows surrounding it. It's not "laugh out loud" type funny, although some stuff is. It's just interesting to watch this very strange family. It grew on me over three episodes. Didn't know if I liked it based off the first episode.

    Sheesh, Cab Bob was awesome. I loved Marshmellow, lol

    I'd give my left nut to have H. Jon Benjamin's voice.

    Did anyone else catch last night's episode. I nearly died when I saw what the paintings were. Yeeesh. Also, does anyone else wanna smack the liking daylights out of the youngest daughter? I think she's trying to be a future Satanist.

    I've been watching it here in the UK on E4. It's entertaining enough. At least it's not got characters looking at the camera every few lines and raising an eyebrow to the audience as if telling you that was a joke and you should laugh now, like most Mcfarlane shows do these days.

    IMO this is the funniest new show I've seen since... well maybe Futurama. The kids are all actually really funny, the Dad is not a total moron like every other cartoon Father, and the comedic timing is just really well done. I hope they can keep this momentum.

    Notice that in her baby picture she's still wearing a little pink hat?

    Yeah the youngest daughter is the best character. Really well written and makes some fantastic remarks. "Let's put this on Dad's head. Here's your Transvestite!" Kristin Shaal is great.

    Can't say I'm a fan. I thought it was kinda stupid.

    The only problem I have with the Father's voice actor is that he just doesn't change his voice. He sounds identical to Coach McGurke, who sounds identical to Dr Katz son. He also was the voice of Orpheus's master, who sounded the same as well.

    He's also Archer, and we've been following that show heavily, so it's really funny hearing him as this super spy and then this balding man 3 days later.

    It isn't for everyone for sure. Its not really in your face funny like Family Guy, but still off color.
