Bob’s Burgers "Gayle Makin' Bob Sled" Review - AVClub

AVClub: Bob Belcher may love Thanksgiving, but all available evidence suggests the holiday doesn’t love him back. “An Indecent Thanksgiving Proposal” had an absinthe-addled Bob dodging bullets from the sharpshooting object of Mr. Fischoeder’s desire. “Turkey In A Can” had a sleepwalking, allergy pill-addled Bob dropping his turkeys in the toilet in reaction to Tina growing up too fast. “Dawn Of The Peck” had a booze-addled Bob—huh, Thanksgiving really is Bob’s prime addling time—abandoned at home while his family was being terrorized by feral turkeys down at Wonder Wharf. Tonight’s “Gayle Makin’ Bob Sled” depicts the first Thanksgiving we’ve seen Bob face sober, but the results are much the same, as the poor guy is again separated from his beloved turkey and put through one hell of an endurance test, one that’s equal parts physical and psychological. Gayle is pretty much at her worst here, faking an injury to get attention after a breakup that apparently never even happened, all while forcing Bob to pull her and the worst of her damn cats through a blizzard. Even by the heady standards of Bob Belcher suffering, this is brutal, brutal stuff.

The story is too old to be commented.
