It's like what would happen if Fox and the creator of Home Movies had a baby.  I was turned off the by the character designs at first... but after three episodes, I already enjoy the characters for their personality and interaction.  The dialogue and characterization is fantastic. smile

I agree with winna, I've seen 2 of the 3 and it's enjoyable.  The kids are great, and Bob acts like someone really would. (Kinda like Homer used to.)

I really like this show.  This is the second time in the past year that I've seen previews for a new animated show and been sure that it wouldn't last two episodes, and then ended up being a fan.  The other one was Ugly Americans

One thing I cant figure out is why the mom and the oldest daughter are voiced by male voice actors.  It's definitely kinda noticeable.

not a bad show. Bob's a pretty good main character, like a more competent Coach McGuirk

Yeah I suppose he is more competent than Coach McGuirk.... even if he is voiced by the same person.

The best part about it and Home Movies is that Loren Bouchard is masterful at creating dynamics for functional dysfunctional families.

Have you watched it yet?  How do you feel about Home Movies?  You're clearly missing out on subtle character interaction that is outright brilliant.  A pity too....

I originally had Kurt's mindset about this show.  However, I got bored enough to see if it was worth watching, and I'm glad I watched all of it.  I wholeheartedly agree with the brilliance, Winna.

Maybe they're reincarnated Shakespearean actors?

Saw it for the first time here in the UK. Didn't like it. Found it boring and unfunny. And why does every adult cartoon seem to be orientated around a nuclear family dammit? So bored of it now...

Last week's birthday party episode was pretty damn funny.  Without taking the transvestites into account.

Fair enough.  However, I'd say this is a more original "nuclear" family concept than most.

I said the exact same thing.  Now I realize that it's a good show and it's certainly not Family Guy et. al......

The preview looked stupid, the characters sounded retarded, the character designs were bad, it's been made to look like the same kind of humour as family guy to get more viewers, I do not want to watch it.

I did, I didn't say it had family guy humour, I said that they made it look like family guy in the promos so more people would watch it.

What up, my knittas?

I like this show quite a bit. It's gentle, but it has bite. Vaguely similar feel to Home Movies, but then again, not really. Don't know why I brought it up. Great cast, too. Way to eschew traditional gender roles, pirates casting directors.

Love this show so much.    A few people have told me Tina reminds them of me so much.  

Anyhow what I love about it is that it's funny, but it has genuine heart and warmth to it.  Bob's become the best tv father ever, because you can really tell he would do anything for his kids, but it's in a very subtle, non-showy, non-saccherine touchy feely way.   I also love how Linda is basically a gay Brooklyn man trapped in the body of a loopy housewife.   I also think it's fantastic that it's one of the few animated sitcoms that actually makes its female characters funny.  South Park has pretty much diminished every one of its funny female characters (Mrs Crabtree, Sheila, Wendy, the Mayor, Principal Victoria) and it's not like it had loads of them to begin with.  As for Family Guy, when they have the main male supporting characters and the main female supporting female characters dancing.... yeah.  Even Mort gets more lines and episodes then any of the gals on the right (when the hell has Tricia Takanawa gotten to do anything?  You'd think killing off poor Diane would leave Tricia open for an increased role but nooooo)

Anyhow.  Great show.  It's hilarious but has genuine charm and warmth to it.    I also love the character designs for the kids, they're really distinctive and cute.

Tina is pretty cool, but I think my favorite is the youngest one.

Tina is always going to be my favourite, but if it wasn't for her, Linda or Louise would probably be my favourite.

I too have had zombie dreams that turn sexual for some reason or another.

Yes, I just admitted that I've had dreams about being engaged in sexual relations with zombies.  No, I'm not going to share the details with you here.

But that's where the devil is! Let him out!

Tina's zombie infatuation and erotic friendfiction are this decade's revolution in eroticism, but I like that Louise pretty much holds all of the true power in the household even more.

Don't forget Nurse Gollum! I really do like the family dynamic at play here, though. In the episode when Tina gets into the car accident while Bob is trying to teach her to drive, he displays incredible patience with her all throughout that I loved. Even in reality, a lot of parents would scream at her or shame her or weep at her, but Bob just tries to come up with a solution and get Tina in on it. It's a very simple display of good parenting on Bob's part, but it's hard to overlook.

I'm not a huge fan of this show, but I will say that I just recently watched the "Serial Pooper" episode and it was quite funny. Best they've done yet! Hopefully they can keep it up.

I've fallen in love with the show since episode two. I think my favorite episode of season 3 is Broadcast Wagstaff School News. Next episode will be My Fuzzy Valentine on February 10.
