Seriously hate the fact that I can't watch new episodes in Canada.

Yeah, it's a bit confusing that they aren't on FX Canada... It's almost like they want us to pirate.

Over evaluate? It's not that hard to say "hey. I didn't laugh as hard as I thought I would"

Ironic coming from you though. Seeing as you over evaluate everything.

Does Canada even have a spy agency?

I can't watch Bob's Burgers because of Benjamin's stupid inability to do different voices. I only want to associate that voice with Archer.

Apparently you aren't familiar with Dr. Katz or Home Movies, both of which preceeded Archer.

Yeah, lots of voice actors use the same voice. Arguably one of the most prominent V.A.'s right now is Steven Blum, and he essentially uses the exact same voice for every role, including Spike Spiegel from Cowboy Bebop, Roger Smith from Big O, Shishio Makoto from Rurouni Kenshin, etc., etc., etc.

Just think of it like any other actor. Live action actors have the same face in multiple roles, and plenty of voice actors have the same voice in multiple roles.

You're cheating yourself out of the best animated show on network television. Bob's Burgers is amazing

Benjamin's done so many voiceovers that you're simply depriving yourself of some comedy gold in many shows if you follow that rule.

I might watch it after Archer gets canceled or "retires" but I just can't watch them simultaneously. It ruins Archer's character for me, while not letting me appreciate the character of Bob for not being Archer.

I've tried to like that show, really I have.

But there's not one likeable character on it.

I'm done trying.

Out of curiosity, have you seen more than one episode? I can see where you're coming from and I'm not trying to force you to like it but despite the same voice, it's pretty easy to separate the two characters without ruining one or the other. The writing is completely different, the supporting casts are completely different and equally hilarious for different reasons.

Hopefully neither show is going anywhere for a while. Of course Bob's will probably get prematurely cancelled for some embarassingly inferior MacFarlane project to take it's place. Seriously, BB is the only show worth watching in that whole Sunday night block

I adore Bob's Burgers. Obviously H. Jon Benjamin is great, but the kids really make the show for me. Louise is a wildcard.

Truthfully no but I adore Archer's character so much that I don't want anything to "spoil" it. It was like watching Dexter and Six Feet Under at the same time. First I'm seeing Dexter being a badass serial killer but the next thing I know he's a little whiner taking it up the butt. It ruins the character for me.

Yeah, the kids are the best. They work like Kreiger works for Archer: Just random, insane oneliners thrown into a typical conversation.

I love that the season premiere continued with the running gags from the series. (Lana's Man hands)

You're missing out on the best comedy on TV.
1.) Core concept?
2.) Not even. Archer+Workaholics+New Girl+Modern Family+Big Bang+Futurama
BB is so overrated.

Maybe those two are debatable. I can see why people don't like those shows...I guess I find those shows funnier when I watch them with other people.

Don't forget Venture Bros. as he's the voice of Dr Orpheus's master.
