Let’s face facts: Animated Television for grownups is a bit of a barren landscape. Sure, Archer is still going strong into its fourth season and Adventure Time, while not strictly a grownup show, has real emotional moments underneath its absurd hilarity, but The Simpsons is a fraction of the shadow of its former self it used to be, and I still believe Family Guy to be the laziest trick turned on good-intentioned television fans the world over. Luckily, just over two years ago, Bob’s Burgers premiered on FOX, and with it came Tina Belcher. I love the character of Tina Belcher, and hopefully over the course of this post, we’ll all be on the same page.
