I just want to drool over this show for a little bit. I really like it. The characters are refreshing: consistent in their behaviors but unique enough to be interesting in most situations they're put into. It's great how the show is centered on a single town and a single family, as most have a main cast and are introducing new characters frequently, but this show has a small community of characters who have fun cameos and, well, the whole thing just feels like a neighborhood, one that's well put together.
I have just finished-- well, not technically finished, as I have still a few episodes near the beginning-- season four, and it really is fantastically better than the others, or at least far better than seasons one and two. Mr. Fischoeder has always been one of my favorite characters, and the further development into his character and familial relationships has pushed him securely into my #1 Character slot.
There are enough details in the individual episodes to make rewatching them rewarding. The Wharfening is especially special in this respect: I was able to watch both parts twice (about almost exactly twenty-four hours apart) without any distractions. That's difficult for me. Very difficult.
But the commercials that play during this show are terrible. Maybe I'm just not used to TV advertising, since I had been watching ad-free TV on Netflix for a year or so before going to a different house for a little while and watching their cable TV. I still hate these commercials, though.

Speaking of bees ...

A few years back, bees started coming into my apartment from the vents. Not only was this on Sunday, when the main office was closed, but it was also Christmas Day.

FUCK CHRISTMAS!

I just recently got caught up. This show is so great though like each character is so hilarious.

I've got to say my favorite episode is Mutiny on the Windbreaker.

Decent episode, definite step back from the previous two Halloween ones. I'm also pretty disappointed with how few episodes we'll probably get this season

Why the fuck did we have to wait 4 weeks for the second episode and now have to wait another 3 for the third??? Does FOX just hate humankind? Maybe that's a stupid question.

Not all humankind, just the fans of quality television.

Also, the rest of humankind..

It's really reassuring to know that some animated comedies still have the ability to stay consistently good.

Today, I watched my first episode of "Bobs Burgers" ever (I worked out, and my mini-"gym" has of course a TV set for entertainment).
I have to admit the show made a good first impression (the episode was about a cow and the question wether to turn it into burgers or not). Will certainly keep an eye on that show. Which - admittedly - right now means "I will not turn off the TV set should I happen to sit in front of the TV when it airs". I am pretty sure that the producers aimed for more than "Some guy in Germany considers that show better than walking to the TV and switching channels*". But hey...it's still better than nothing, right ?


*Yep, the mini-"gyms" TV has no working remote control. It should have been replaced long by now, but I was sitting in front of that thing when I was a little kid of 5. By now, I just want to know how that TV set will live on...I am pretty sure it will survive me and at least 3 generations after me. Actually, I beginn to suspect that thing as some kind of self repair mechanism. Whenever the picture on the sceen showed certain flaws and disturbances (e.g. wrong colours around the edges), those vanished after a while. In fact - when the Borg will once conquer the universe - I am pretty sure it will turn out their whole adaption technology was based on my old TV set.
And - yes - I have some spare time right now, using my PC to bring some shenanigans online. After all, I am an internet user , and I therefore fall under the common obligation to share every little brain fart with the rest of the world, wether it wants it or not.

The Bob's Burger Experiment is a blog that makes burgers based on the Burger of the Day, and is now working with Loren Bouchard and Bento Box Entertainment to publish an official Bob's Burgers cookbook.

They actually announced one over a year ago but nothing appears to have come to fruition yet. hmpf

Maybe they'll get one with a proper DVD set near the end of the series

Funny enough, they mentioned both the soundtrack and the cookbook when I saw Bob's Burgers Live two months ago.

You lucky son of a bitch. By the time I heard about that, the only tickets left were VIP, and girl, you do need a backstage pass. I didn't have one. What was it like?

Mm, I'd love to hear some extended versions of the ending songs, Tina's Thundergirl song especially.

It was a lot of fun. They started off with each of the cast members doing individual standup bits. Dan Mintz's is comprised mostly of one-liner jokes that are surprisingly great, Kristen Schall is weird and adorable and awesome, and Eugene Mirman is one of my favorite standup acts, so getting to see them all was worth the price of admission alone to me. John Roberts had a couple funny bits but overall didn't do a whole lot for me. Jon Benjamin is a really funny guy but he doesn't actually have any standup bits, he kind of just comes on stage and improvises, joking around with the crowd, which sometimes works and sometimes doesn't so much.

After that they did a cast reading of the first two acts of an episode that hadn't aired yet. It has by now (Housetrap, third to last episode this season) and even after seeing the completed product I think it's not one of their stronger episodes so that was slightly disappointing, but it was still great fun getting to see the cast interact in character and reacting to each other's goofy line readings.

They did a couple short musical selections that were fun to see (Schall in particular seemed to enjoy singing them), most memorably the main song from the Topsy musical, with the musicians who actually compose the music for the show on stage to accompany them. They also answered a bunch of questions that had been pre-written down for them by audience members. One of them had the rest of the cast time Dan Mintz to see how long he could sustain a Tina groan for.

I also saw Bob's Burgers Live and managed to score VIP tickets with my younger sister. We got to meet the cast and chat with them a little, plus we got a tote bag of merchandise (autographed poster, t-shirt, and a water bottle) which I didn't feel was worth the extra cost. Meeting the cast was a great once-in-a-lifetime experience, and that was definitely worth it, even if it was only for a couple of minutes.

The show followed pretty much the same format JoshTheater mentioned, except ours had different musical numbers and a more disorganized Q&A. The questions weren't pre-written; everyone lined up to ask theirs and things got a little chaotic, especially when some people had a fair amount to drink. Some guy even proposed to his girlfriend during that part. (I happened to be in line behind them and Jon Benjamin shouted, "PROPOSE TO THE GUY BEHIND YOU! PROPOSE TO HIM RIGHT NOW!" before I could even ask my question. That was awesome. The guy behind me seemed to be on board with it, too.)
