And this is why Tina as the protagonist is so key: Watching the show for Tina allows you to see this family from the inside, not from the outside. It’s not just a psychotic little girl with bunny ears and a down-on-his-luck restaurateur—those are character ideas that have been mined for laughs before. Instead, the Belchers are a living, breathing family, playing their jokes to one another, not to the audience. The intimacy of their lives is right with you, and it is breathtaking. That’s why it was so painful at first for me—this is the unvarnished reality of the Belchers, and it’s a lot to handle.

But on the other side of that awkwardness and anxiety is so much joy. Bob’s Burgers is about a family that loves each other, and that’s so powerful. The Belchers are this generation’s heirs to the Simpsons. The family dynamics play a powerful role in every episode, and in the humor there is social commentary—albeit very different forms of it. Because where The Simpsons is often cynical about the world, and even about its characters, Bob’s Burgers is stubbornly hopeful. And a lot of that comes down to the vast differences between The Simpsons’ oldest sibling, Bart, and the oldest Belcher kid, Tina. Bart is rough, cynical, and aggressive—the squabbling voice of dissent his generation needed.

Tina is a hero for a different age. If millennials are going to crown ourselves the generation of New Sincerity—and we will, because despite our pretensions to irony, all we want from the world is sincerity—then Tina Belcher is our queen. She’s free of irony, free of judgment, and disinterested in pretension or artifice. Tina embraces her vulnerability, and so the world embraces her. And if Tina’s our queen, then Bob’s Burgers is the comedy for us: a funny, weird little show about love and acceptance and family that speaks to the weird kid in all of us.



Bob’s Burgers’ Tina makes the series a must-watch and 2013’s third-best show
