I have grown to really enjoy this show. Only Archer is a better animated show.

IMO, Seth MacFarlane’s shows have become so randomly formulaic, that Bob’s Burgers is actually quite refreshing. It’s a show about a weird little family that I’m actually coming to know and care about. It’s not plagued by the non sequitur jokes and pop culture references that seem to be steadily growing like a cancer as the seasons go by, in MacFarlane’s metaphorical organs.

But Bob’s is only 14 episodes in, so I can’t really judge. Give them 10 seasons and their writing may be just as random.

Although it’s not just the writing. The animation is more free. When I watch Macfarlane’s shows, during dialogue scenes, I feel like I’m watching a puppet show. Bob’s doesn’t seem to rely on any one master angle for a room. You see the backs of heads and reverse angles much more often. It feels more like a film and less like a play.

And the faces on MacFarlane’s shows I’m sure are mostly recycled from past episodes. It works fine, and maybe Bob’s is doing the same thing, but they do it better and seem to vary it up more often. Here are a couple choice Louise faces from the new episode:

I don’t know what they should do about ratings. But this show’s got something. If fox can’t make it work, I’m sure Adult Swim would be more that happy to pick up the show. It’s more their style anyway.

Seriously? After ONE episode, you’re asking if it’s good enough for a third season?

Do you ask if you want desert before eating the entree?
