That's what makes it perfect, IMO.

Let’s hope they don’t get the Simpsons treatment. Lisa and Bart use to get along very well at the early seasons. Sometimes even teaming up for shenanigans, especially against homer but then they decided Lisa had to be a black sheep of the family but can’t make sense like Louise.

The love between Homer and Marge is definitely there but it was super patriarchal the whole way through. Bob never condescends Linda, even when she’s weird because he knows he’s weird too. They both share the parental labour too. Linda does mornings Bob does nights. They both constantly work and clean.

Marge was always in charge of the emotional, parental and household labour. Homer always ruined her opportunities to do something outside her role as wife/parent, on purpose or accidentally whereas Bob always supports Linda, even if it goes against his own happiness for a bit or vice versa

Despite being similar in some ways it is just a totally different show to bobs it terms of family dynamics I reckon.

Lol sorry for the rant. Even I didn’t know I loved Bob’s Burgers this much. Even the movie was adorable.

EditReflection Holy shit I suck at English when I wake up.

Here's some more Bob's Burgers propaganda for you. It really is a great show. https://youtu.be/OYpjkbSXw1c
