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.
Bob's Burgers lacks The Simpsons' warmth and—I never thought I'd be writing this—tact. If The Simpsons is that college roommate who ate all your ramen without permission, Bob's Burgers is the guy who stole your refrigerator and set fire to your mother's quilt. Though it sometimes aims for the heart, its gags hit somewhere south of there. In other words, cleanly funny moments are as rare as tofu on Bob's lunch menu, never mind that the series was awarded an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program. And while it's less objectionable than any one of Seth MacFarlane's slew of comedies, episodes are still filled with quips that give noxious nods to cannibalism, talking feces, bestiality and pedophilia, among other things. Bob once asked Gene, his son, if he could please stop using his bullhorn to make farting noises at folks passing by the diner. "There's a line between entertaining and annoying," Bob tells him. "No!" Gene hollers. "That's a myth!" Which neatly sums up the philosophy, it would seem, of Bob's Burgers.
