BOB’S BURGERS “Sacred Cow” Review

BOB’S BURGERS "Sacred Cow" Episode 3 – I thoroughly enjoyed tonight’s episode of BOB’S BURGERS, "Sacred Cow." I’m not sure if it’s just that I’m starting to really understand how this show is intended to feel, or if Bob’s Burgers is doing a better job of setting up that feeling in each new episode. The comedy has always been largely dependent on conversation and improvisation and tonight was no exception. The interaction that Bob’s family has with one another and with the people that they come into contact with sometimes reminds me more of shows like Arrested Development and Malcolm in the Middle than the other animated shows on the Fox Sunday night line up. I’m understanding now why some people have suggested that Bob’s Burgers might make a better live action sitcom – but that would mean we’d have to have actual child actors instead of the brilliant comedic skills of Kristen Schall, Eugene Mirman and Dan Mintz.

Tonight’s episode continued the improving trend for Bob’s Burgers. I’ve always loved Louise and Gene and "Sacred Cow" was no exception; they were hilarious as usual. Bob is quickly becoming one of my favorite characters and I’ve started to think that it’s because he’s so wonderfully human. I believe that he loves and mostly enjoys his weird kids and wife and that he takes pride in his small business and really only wants a normal day of selling burgers. He has his occasional quirky moments like we all do, but his frustrations and his reactions are mostly normal so he becomes the character that lets us step into their world. We’d all be annoyed with the same things he’d be annoyed with and I love that he reacts the way I imagine I would react if I was thrown into the same bizarre scenarios with the same borderline insane family and irritating neighbors. He doesn’t flip out for comedy’s sake – he just takes a deep breath and hopes for everything to be over as soon as possible so he can get back to work. Bob is the family’s anchor and I appreciate him for that. Read More...
