Pam's model.  I'm saying I would.

Archer, Bob, Coach McGurk, Satan (Lucy, daughter of the Devil), The Master (Venture Bros), the store clerk from Family Guy, crapton of others

OK, what the fark is up with that site? I just can't get the slideshow to load. Maybe its Chrome?

After sending us to a slideshow, you better call Kenny Loggins subby

I tried to watch Bob's Burgers, but two things killed it for me:

One, the pilot episode was terrible.  Boring and not funny.

Two, H Jon Benjamin using the same EXACT voice for Bob as he does for Archer.

Reason number one is far more important, and I have read people raving about the show, so maybe one day I'll give it another chance.

Heh. I know someone who looks more like Ray than Ray's model.

I wonder who was the model for the fat guy. You know, the hobbit enthusiast.

yeah, I only get Sterling and no further.  CBA to try a different browser for a slideshow.

Archer's model reminds me of a young Norm McDonald. Also, none of them really look like their characters
 
2013-02-06 07:44:39 PM
I would totally wreck Pam.

Cyril's model.  I'm saying I (probably) would.

When I picture Candi's real-life mouth hole saying, "I'm so wet that I just drowned a toddler in my panties," I feel a little guilty.

I'd feel guilty, too, since you got the line totally wrong.

Yeah, they did a quasi-crossover episode earlier this season where Archer lost his memory and had been living as Bob for several months.

Man that was such an underrated show.

Precision Boobery: H. Jon has some funny things to say about how people tell him that the show is ruined for them once they've seen his face.

Not at all, but his inability to do more than one voice has ruined Bob's Burgers and Home Movies for me.


He also does the voices of Jason (which is probably why McGuirk hates him) and Walter, plus others.

The problem is less that he can only do one voice, and more that all these shows just want the Coach McGuirk voice. Ron Lynch seems like the lazy one.

Both?

I can't NOT laugh at how cranky the Mallory model appears to be.

I know that Mallory is voiced by Arrested Development's Jessica Walter, but the character reminds me (physically, anyways) of Susan Sullivan, the actress who plays Rick Castle's mom on Castle.

Katleen's actually pretty nice. She's been in theater productions (and even a few tv shows and movies) in the Atlanta area for years... I did a show with her years ago.

Ray's model was on Good Eats, he played the dungeon master.

Susan Sullivan sounds a lot like Mallory too, though less pissed off.

I was the same. I gave it a chance when it came out, didn't watch any more of it until this past autumn, when I was bored and in need of some junk-food entertainment, so I downloaded the first season. It either grew on me or just got better, because I liked it pretty well.

BATMANATEE: Susan Sullivan sounds a lot like Mallory too, though less pissed off.


That as well, aye.  Before I saw the credits for the show, I thought that WAS Susan Sullivan.

*whew*

That's a relief, then!

He strikes me as an alternate universe version of WWE's Sheamus.

And of course, I have to wonder who inspired that one character, that Burt Reynolds fellow who hung out with Archer...

I KID, I KID

I would completely accept this guy as archer.

Fark helped me with that.

I approach it as either one of two ways.

1.  Bob is Archer, after he has washed up and ran through all of Mallory's money.  This is all he has left, and its payback time.

2. Archer is Bob's fantasy alter-ego.  He imagines himself on these missions while he is flipping burgers to distract himself from his insane kids.  So he has insane coworkers.

I take the fourth season premiere as canon and accept the fact that Archer became Bob after a bout of amnesia.

I love having him show up as the necromancer's spirit guide on Venture Bros.  There's nothing like Archer saying, "I can lick my own balls!"
