Bob’s Burgers never misses with their new releases


For as long as I can remember, I have loved the show Bob’s Burgers. No matter what mood I may be in, this show has always been there for me, and this feeling has definitely continued onto the release of the new season. 

With most shows, the plot slowly gets worse as time goes on; the same cannot be said about season 14 of Bob’s Burgers. As long as the studio has been creating more and more episodes, they have done such an amazing job of keeping their audience’s attention. 

It starts with a creative episode, “Fight at the Not Okay Chore-ral” where the Belcher family is creating a new story: the Wild Wild West. There are two separate sides of the town, the sheriffs and the townspeople. The children — Tina, Gene, and Louise — own a tavern where they are constantly creating mischief. The sheriffs — Bob and Linda — are trying to make the town into a more orderly environment with the hopes of a new town owner. It goes through the story as the family narrates the whole thing as they are fighting over disciplinary actions in their real lives. This episode is a beautiful example of how diverse the show has been throughout the years, going from both sides of the spectrum of creativity.

The overall creativity, humor, and diversity of this show is what makes it so captivating for all ages.

My favorite episode of the season so far would have to be “Fraud of the Dead: Zombie-docu-apocalypse.” It starts with Tina, the eldest daughter, recording a documentary for Louise, the youngest, as she claims to be the world’s best archer. During the middle of filming, the family’s closest friends are transformed into zombies and try to attack everyone. The family has to fight off all the zombies, hoping for Louise to use her amazing archery skills to defeat them. That was when Louise revealed a dark secret: she wasn’t strong enough to pull back the string. The children attempt to hide from all the zombies, but fail. That was until they found the zombies’ weakness: mustard. With the reveal of weakness came Louise’s modification of holding the bow with her foot and pulling the string back. They were finally able to defeat the zombies with an unusual, but also quite mighty, mixture of adrenaline and mustard. At the end of the episode, it was revealed that it was all just a home movie that the kids wanted to make on a spur.

Never before has a show with this many seasons been able to draw me into the fourth or fifth time of rewatching, until Bob’s Burgers. The overall creativity, humor, and diversity of this show are what make it so captivating for all ages. Although the producers only plan to release 17 episodes instead of their regular 22, I’m almost certain that it will still be one amazing season. So far, there have been 14 episodes of the season shown to the public, all being immensely interactive and entertaining. 

I think it is fair to say that this show holds a high standing on my roster of things to watch, especially given that I watch the same things over and over again. Bob’s Burgers is a show where you can put all or none of your attention into watching. Season 14 has just added more opportunities to watch, or even just listen, to this masterpiece of a TV show. 

So, if anyone is ever looking for a new show to indulge in, my best request would be Bob’s Burgers with the continuation of releasing season 14.
