It's just a slice of life in the "average American family" thing
Better than Family Guy that's for sure, but that's not a huge accomplishment. It's a bit smarter and less predictable, but still, it's not really doing anything new, just doing something that has been done a million times better than other shows
I mean, it's still a bumbling but loving father, a very caring and loud and sometimes obnoxious mother, a loser fat son, a nerdy daughter with social anxiety issues, and a daredevil youngest child

I know this isn't /tv/ but why the fuck is this even a thing anymore
Because the Simpsons made it extremely profitable, and because a lot of modern western animation is just the creator modestly recreating the circumstances of their life.
Every child character in every animation is an aspect of the creator's youth.
I watched it because H. Jon Benjamin was the main character and the dude who made it also made Home Movies so I thought it could be good.
I love Bob's Burgers but that song was... not good. I wouldn't listen to Sleater-Kinney with the impression I got from "A New Wave". Boring pop punk sounding stuff with grating vocals.
shortly after The Woods, i'd imagine.
Loren Bouchard has been making great cartoons with shoddy art since most people on this board were actual babies.
This was the level of art on the dude's first show.
>tfw i use to have a "friend" who always went on tumblr, thought Bob's Burgers was an amazing show, and listened to Hollywood Undead unironically
She was such a annoying bitch, glad I'm not friends with her anymore.
>that godawful animation
people actually like this?
Haven't seen a recent ep but 'Burgers' seemed alright the few times i actually watched it.
And i don't care for the new S-K album beyond the final three songs that end it but the rest of their catalogue is pretty righteous.
Pic related is my favorite album from their discography.
no one ITT said they don't like cartoons, we can just spot a shitty cartoon when we see one
The only reason I watched bob's burgers was because I heard on eof the writers from king of the hill works on the show..it does have king of the hill-ish humor but it's pretty dull and boring and doesnt have what made king of the hill so great and relatable.
