Loren Bouchard has returned with his new animated series Bob’s Burgers. The show follows the life of restaurant owner and family man, Bob Belcher. The Belchers (Bob, Linda and their children Tina, Gene, and Louise) live over the restaurant where they work serving burgers to the few fans of the great American delicacy.

Bob’s Burgers is a series that has not gained the credit it deserves. Unlike Family Guy, Happy Endings or The Big Bang Theory, which throw the jokes at you, the comedic presence of Bob’s Burgers is under toned requiring the viewer to listen carefully, picking out the humour in the natural dialog.

Not only are the jokes great but, the guests are as well. In season 1 alone you hear comedians: Andy Kindler (Home Movies), Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Laura Silverman (Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist) Sarah Silverman (The Sarah Silverman Program) and more.

I believe Bob’s Burgers: The Complete 1st Season is the beginning of a cult-following show that will bring real comedy fans together. It may not achieve fabulous ratings but, it will join the likes of legendary Arrested Development.

Episodes: 1-13
Bonus Features: Audio Commentary on All Episodes / “Lifting Up The Skirt Of The Night” Music Video / Audio Outakes for “Bed & Breakfast” and “Sexy Dance Fighting” / Bob’s Burgers Original Demo with Introduction by Loren Bouhard / Louise And The Chalkboard
