That’s right, we’ve reached the “Steely Dan deep cuts” portion of this evening’s blogging.
Steely Dan - “Daddy Don’t Live in That New York City No More” (Katy Lied, 1975)
Workin’ on a thing about The Raid 2 for DtHL.
I feel like one of the things that sets Bobs Burgers apart from its counterparts in shows like Family Guy is its penchant for love and sincerity in its characters. Tina doesn’t get relentlessly mocked by her family members for being awkward and homely for laughs like Meg Griffin would be, the comedy is instead in how they defend her from people giving her crap. The parents and the kids and the siblings all have moments where they assess how close they are often and it’s something not seen much in these sort of family-based animated comedies (besides early Simpsons). BB may not be a perfect show by any means, but I feel like its sense of heart definitely makes it more fun to watch than a lot of its peers in primetime animated comedies.
Bob’s Burgers made me cry twice and makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, please watch it.
There will never be another Simpsons, but Bob’s Burgers consistent comes the closest to emulating what made it great.
I know this post is about the jokes, but I want to hear from the person who legit has both the means and the desire (need?) to buy a 55-gallon drum of lube. I want to hear their story.
