Probably my favorite thing about Bob’s Burgers is that they don’t do that thing where the characters try to one-up each other with an endless barrage of jokes? No, the characters react like actual people instead. They actually laugh or chuckle when somebody says something actually funny and/or weird. They stop mid-sentence. They do double-takes. And it all feels so very natural, because that is exactly what common people do. And that is such a refreshing change of pace, when you consider the fact that the norm in these things is to have jokes relentlessly thrown at you at break-necking speed.
also the comedy doesn’t rely on the parents hating and berating eachother idk i love that
it shows how you don’t need to be offensive to be funny
general banter is the best way to write dialogue
i have very strong feeling about the show Constantine, yeah lemme tell you about John Constantine(first appeared in the series Hellblazer) he is the 'bad-ass mother fucker'. Aside from his ass kicking mystic hocus-pocus and the fact that he STOLE AN ANGEL(He followed him actually but still he did steal) He is openly pan, not implied or mentioned, it is shown clearly on the page as he rescues his ex and also murderer(funny how things work out) from bondage and makes out with him in the middle of a bdsm club kinda place. He is pretty open about it as he flirts with various genders from various species throughout the series… He is also, after Dante from DMC series my favourite power-bottom. And yes his design is where Cas’ was inspired from
(He actually first appeared in Swamp Thing, and does many “guest appearances” in other series. He’s kind of the “chaotic neutral” character in the DC universe; whenever the superheroes need some crazy shit done, he’ll step up. And he’s FUCKING AWESOME.)
