DVD Review: BOB’S BURGERS Season 1

Out on DVD today is BOB’S BURGERS Season 1 – following a third-generation restaurateur, Bob Belcher, who runs Bob’s Burgers with the help of his wife, and their three kids.  Despite his greasy counters, lousy location, and occasionally spotty service, Bob is convinced his burgers speak for themselves.  Featuring the voice talents of H. Jon Benjamin (ARCHER), Kristen Schaal (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS), and Eugene Mirman, among an amazing array of others, BOB’S BURGERS is an incredible show that has me laughing for hours even after I’ve watched it.

Watching the episodes again on DVD just helped to justify my love for the show that I didn’t initial enjoy!  It’s a shame I was originally ready to cast this show off, because of my affinity for ARCHER, but this show is one of the funniest shows of recent years, and the DVD set is worth buying just so you, too, can be all caught up!

Tell me the details!!
