Bob’s Burgers, Season 8 DVD
BOB’S BURGERS, the 2014 Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Animated Program and a 2016 nominee in the same category, returns for a well-done eigth season. The series follows BOB (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob’s Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, but the rest of the clan falls short on service.
Bob’s Burgers is a truly brilliant show in many ways. Since it wouldn’t be feasible to list them all I’ll highlight one of my favorites: It’s a truly rare animated show that casts a favorable light on family. Look at the warped, valueless, often disgusting and criminal antics of such animated ‘families’ found in, of all things, Family Guy or American Dad, The Cleveland Show. Illegal drug usage, adultery, teen sex, even robbery and homicide are topics for family humor. Most animated TV families are horrible role models. Sure, the Belcher kids pull some goodies and often leave Dad looking like a moron, but the bond of family is never broken; Linda wouldn’t allow it!
I am OBSESSED with this show. I have been crazy over it ever since I watched the very first episode. I have just watched the season premiere and it was so creative. The season eight episodes have been so creative and i’m so excited for the rest! Some of the negative comments are saying that they changed the drawing style and that it wasn’t good, but it was just for the premiere. Definitely recommend this show.
