We saw a side of Bob and Hugo in this week’s episode of Bob’s Burgers that we probably never really needed to see. It’s hard not to laugh at the sight of two pudgy, middle-aged men – whose bellies cover any unmentionables – engaging in nude athletic competition, but even if Bob did end up naked on the beach, “Nude Beach” was more about the restaurant than it was about Bob’s nude liberation.
Hugo and Ron brought the business side of Bob’s Burgers back to the forefront of the show. Hugo’s obsession with being the thorn in Bob’s side kept him nitpicking at every little point he could deduct from Bob’s inspection score. That quickly changed when Hugo discovered the freedom of a nude lifestyle and a new health inspector waltzed into Bob’s life.
Hugo’s replacement, Tommy, only briefly seemed like a dream come true for Bob. Before he knew what hit him, Bob had Tommy holding the restaurant’s health rating hostage for a place to play his “rock and roll.”
