Bob's Burgers: "Human Flesh" Review

Bob's Burgers is the latest addition to FOX's Sunday night animated block, and its story of a dysfunctional family with two put-upon parents and three difficult kids should feel very familiar to fans of The Simpsons and Family Guy. Whether this show has the staying power to match those behemoths is a lot to ask after only one episode, but the uneven pilot did have its share of solid jokes.
