This week let’s check back in with some of the sitcoms we reviewed this season.
Part of what makes Bob’s Burgers such a great show is its ability to deliver funny, clever, and surprisingly good original music nearly every week. From silly riffs about Linda’s search for Harry Truman or Gene’s fear of snakes, to full-blown musical numbers like Gene’s ode to Thomas Edison “Electric Love.”
The animated sitcom has long inhabited a categorical limbo with American television audiences. Many will easily dismiss all cartoons as inherently childish. Such viewers are seemingly unable to suspend their disbelief that animation can be for grownups, too.
