This show is funny and deserves its own thread.

future worm food (n/a), Monday, 26 March 2012 20:36 (seven years ago) link

I love it so much.

I hope my DVR recorded it last night.

polyphonic, Monday, 26 March 2012 20:38 (seven years ago) link

I need to remember to set this up for autorecording. Thankfully, I've got ondemand as a backup.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 26 March 2012 20:42 (seven years ago) link

But anyway, YES! I love this show so much.

Everytime I think I've narrowed down my favorite kid, one of the other ones does something that makes him/her my favorite. Gene...Tina...Louise...I guess that's what it feels like to be a parent.

Johnny Fever, Monday, 26 March 2012 20:44 (seven years ago) link

ha i forgot to watch this last week. so apparently 100 percent of this show's fans forget to watch it, based on our sample so far.

tina is the best.

future worm food (n/a), Monday, 26 March 2012 20:46 (seven years ago) link

this show would work better and save a lot of animation costs by just filming the table reads.

Philip Nunez, Monday, 26 March 2012 21:22 (seven years ago) link

I have never seen this show. Tell me why it's better than Family Guy.

Cuba Pudding, Jr. (jaymc), Monday, 26 March 2012 21:24 (seven years ago) link

It reminds me of Home Movies, for both obvious (Benjamin) and non-obvious reasons.

It is not like Family Guy at all.

polyphonic, Monday, 26 March 2012 21:29 (seven years ago) link

it's nothing like family guy except that it's animated and on fox

future worm food (n/a), Monday, 26 March 2012 21:30 (seven years ago) link

more character/dialogue-based, has occasional flights of fancy but nothing like the constant jumps to random pop culture references like in family guy

future worm food (n/a), Monday, 26 March 2012 21:31 (seven years ago) link

now tell him why it's better than The Secret Circle

ha i think i'm being preemptively defensive of loving this show. i think whiney was making fun of bob's burgers fans. anyways, the first episode of the new season (s2) is up on hulu and is probably a pretty good introduction to the show if anyone is interested in trying it.

Yay! It seems to get better and better.

Gotta say I hate most of the voices except Benjamin's (and I mostly like his 'cause it reminds me of McGuirk/Ben Katz)

Mordy, Monday, 21 May 2012 03:03 (seven years ago) link

but I thought that made it 10. Too bad there's no way to find out.

Never mind, you're right. Weird. Very European.

just started watching this on netflix -- pretty great!

tylerw, Monday, 21 May 2012 03:42 (seven years ago) link

Were these episodes simply the "back 9" after the original 13? Perhaps when it starts again this fall, we'll get 22 (or maybe another 13+9).

Johnny Fever, Monday, 21 May 2012 03:51 (seven years ago) link

I need to buy this show on DVD, just for the commentary tracks.

Choad of Choad Hall (kingfish), Monday, 21 May 2012 03:59 (seven years ago) link

My favorite kid changes every episode. Often, several times within an episode.

Johnny Fever, Tuesday, 19 June 2012 05:08 (seven years ago) link

Yeah, I think the kids are all equally great.

But my favorite character is probably Teddy.

the absurd specificity of that joke was somewhat ruined for me because i'm nerdy enough to know that that's what Latifah was dressed like in the "Ladies First" video, 3-4 years before the "U.N.I.T.Y." video, where she looked more like this:

I'm amused that it's Madison since the show is clearly in a New England or mid-Atlantic beach town

Infamous dickbiscuits (silby), Friday, 2 November 2012 04:02 (six years ago) link

do the cast travel in the same circles as seth macfarlane? he could end up on the show as a guest voice.

Philip Nunez, Wednesday, 28 August 2013 19:09 (five years ago) link

Why must people sully this great topic with these constant invocations of the dark one.

Jon Benjamin plays a recurring minor character on FG on occasion.

Sir Lord Baltimora (Myonga Vön Bontee), Wednesday, 28 August 2013 21:29 (five years ago) link

The cast are all alt-comics based in NYC(I think)

taxi tomato or bag tomato (Trayce), Monday, 30 September 2013 01:16 (five years ago) link

This show has really grown in quality over time - love it. Making it more and more outlandish and spending less focus on just the restaurant was the right way to go. It's filling my Home Movies void just fine.

Neanderthal, Saturday, 5 October 2013 17:34 (five years ago) link

I wasn't in love with the first episode, but I may just need to recalibrate my system after a summer away.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 5 October 2013 17:49 (five years ago) link

This most recent episode was amazing. Every single person in the cast brought their A-game and then some.

the Bronski Review (Trayce), Thursday, 12 December 2013 00:45 (five years ago) link

Home ec episode was one of my favorites so far. Especially the compressed teacher-student struggle between Bob and Zeke. They do a really good job making this show seem ad libbed.

Vinnie, Thursday, 12 December 2013 14:35 (five years ago) link

They record most of the v/o live with the whole cast in the booth so some of it might be, a little bit.

In addition to being the co-executive producer and showrunner, Loren also composed the show's opening theme. I interviewed Loren in his office, where his desk is surrounded by musical instruments. In this episode, he talks about which ones went into the theme, and the emotions he wanted to evoke with each of them.

Season 5 starts this Sunday.

One of the episode synopses for this season on the BB wiki simply says "Tina falls in love with a ghost." I'm already laughing at just the idea of this.

difficult-difficult lemon-difficult (VegemiteGrrl), Thursday, 2 October 2014 02:41 (four years ago) link

one of the weird indulgences of this show is that it posits that these children who were presumably born in the early 2000s are really into the pop-cultural touchstones of people who were teenagers in the 80s.

louise is my favorite too. the boy band episode is her finest moment imo.
