…now that you think about it…
Never can just scroll by this.
No fucking way.
Probably my favorite thing about Bob’s Burgers is that they don’t do that thing where the characters try to one-up each other with an endless barrage of jokes? No, the characters react like actual people instead. They actually laugh or chuckle when somebody says something actually funny and/or weird. They stop mid-sentence. They do double-takes. And it all feels so very natural, because that is exactly what common people do. And that is such a refreshing change of pace, when you consider the fact that the norm in these things is to have jokes relentlessly thrown at you at break-necking speed.
also the comedy doesn’t rely on the parents hating and berating eachother idk i love that
it shows how you don’t need to be offensive to be funny
general banter is the best way to write dialogue
I also like that he prefers his wife’s idea over a complement from his role model because he thinks it’s legitimately funny and clever. Most sitcom husbands belligerently disregard anything that comes out of their wife’s mouth, much less acknowledge when they’re being humorous.
I literally don’t care about anything any of you just said
