Love Bob's Burgers. I listened to a podcast with the actor who plays Tina and was surprised to learn that she is the only woman giving voice to the Belcher family.


I'm assuming you're referring to Kristen Schaal, who plays Louise? She's pretty awesome. Interestingly, in the original pilot, Tina was actually a boy, but they changed it and I'm glad they did because Tina is a fantastically smart, strong, sensual woman. I am slightly disappointed, though, that so many of the lead female characters in this show are played by men, just because there is already a shortage of complex roles for women on television.

Well, technically not a Belcher, but Linda's sister is voiced by the hilarious and awesome Megan Mulally.

Yes! Megan Mullally is also awesome (I had to google her to remember how to spell her name). I forgot and just remembered that Laura and Sarah Silverman play boys on the show, so I guess that evens it out a bit. The whole cast is pretty great, actually.

I love this show. To me it kind of found its stride after the first season and has been gold ever since. I honestly can't decide which character I like best, but I think I might be on Team Tina. Linda comes in a close second. But I'm fickle.
One of my favorite episodes is the one where Tina takes those capawayuh classes (no idea how to spell it, that's my phonetic interpretation). That instructor with that hair!

^^ i can't remember whether that episode was the very first one i saw, but it's the first one i remember paying attention to, and it was a game changer. i recommend it whenever people tell me they haven't watched this show or haven't been able to get into it. if sexy dance fighting doesn't make you a believer, nothing will.

I have the same problem as you guys, I can't pick a favourite character! They all have such amazing, winning moments.

What Gene didn't say in his story is that the Fart School For the Gifted is comprised mainly of vegans.

this week's episode summed up all my worst fears about internet interactions and drain clogs.

I love the show, but I've also loved the crossovers with Archer. I just finished season 4 of Archer on netflix and got to see Louise (my clear favorite character) and Gene as a couple. I like that characters in Archer look like the actors too, so you can recognize them, but it's weird hearing those voices trying to be adults. Kristen Schaal's character is vegan on Archer and I've seen previous vegan references on the show before. I'm guessing one of the characters/writers is vegan..?

My spouse randomly sings that Kwicky Kisset song from the Seaplane episode all the time. Where Tina's flying over all the boys and kissing them.

In general, yes, but have you seen H. Jon Benjamin?

Not bad or anything, just... definitely not Archer.

The Archer characters have human models who aren't the voice artists.
