        1. @adiwan As someone who despises Bob's Burgers, I have to ask, what does that mean ?

          1. @drinkingpony there was an episode in which Bob was Archer

            1. @adiwan I googled it and found http://rainbowdash.net/url/874540

              I am honestly confused. Were there moments where I was supposed to go "Hahaha ! instead of "Oh wow this is cringe inducingly bad"

              I liked the intro though.

              1. @drinkingpony I haven't seen Bob's Burgers in a while but my last impression was that it was alright. Yeah, a bit clingy at times but mostly in a relatable way. I can also see its appeal or lack thereof.

                1. @adiwan [ mostly in a relatable way. ]

                  Now I know that is a feeling, and I could never tell you that you are wrong. But things like Gravity Falls and MLP feel more relatable to me than BB. Not in that I actually come into contact with magic on the daily ( I should fix that ) but I would save my sibling from vampires or get all exited when I get one of my friends involved with one of my hobbies to the point where I forego my normal silent and reserved demeanor ( That is a long way around to get to scratch my back, but I hope you get what I mean... Fluttershy and Tank, I am thinking about that thing ). The motivations seem to remain stable and similar enough where I am able to crawl in their mindset.

                  Meanwhile in BB, let us say that the characters are indeed deeper to the point where the other two pale in comparison. Then you run into the trouble of never ever being able to show us enough of their actual personalities to make enough connections for relatablility, and that takes me out.

          2. @drinkingpony Wow, despises. I previously hadn't even met many people who disliked it. People who didn't watch, or maybe even didn't enjoy it, but not yet despised.

            1. @scribus | Despise | Verb | Feel contempt for.

              Yeah, I'd say that is the word I would use.

              I find the voice-work boring and insultingly monotone to the point where both Mike Judge ( Hank Hill ) sounds like an orchestra of range.

              I find the drawing/animation style all sorts of stiff, uninteresting, and causes everything to look samey. Characters always placed right in front of the viewer whenever they do anything and probably looking directly at the viewer when opening their mouth.

              The humor is all over the place, mostly acting stupid all the time for the sake of being stupid. The TV people suddenly deciding to burn that tape with evidence ( Family Fraca's ) everyone standing around like a buffoon and ending with Bob being goated into repairing a tire for a guy he hates. As someone else once put it "There are more delightfull shows to watch CuckerSpaniels.

              I do not have a single reason to care about any of the characters as they ... ( 1/2 )

              1. @drinkingpony ( 2/2 ) as they seemingly do not have personalities as much as they are ONLY defined by their insanities.

                I even have strong resentment to it because it killed the Cleveland Show according to most. It just being a Malcolm in the Middle rip-off by means of storyboarding but not by execution. It honestly reminds me of other bad products. Like Far Cry 2 ( where everyone was dead, did not speak english very well ( because... africa ? ) story did not go anywhere and you just did things because... ... ... Vagueness ? ) or Big Mouth.

                Know what, I will take that back, Big Mouth at least crept me out with 40 year old voice actors saying things that teenagers who go through puberty should say. And the people who made the storyboards at least talked to eachother.

                "So, ehmm, do you think everyone is able to see the hormone beast, or just everyone can see only theirs ?"

                So grats Bobs Burgers, you get to be above something that gives me nightmares. #
