Ahead Of Its Time
BOB was ahead of its time - certainly in its setting. A comic book company? Now a network would LOVE that - how hip, how edgy, comic books and graphic novels are everywhere!!! But in the early 90's comic books hadnt quite had their comeback yet. But that's what made the show unique. The very underrated Cynthia Stevenson was so good playing off of Bob and I loved his pet cat. The show should have been given a chance and NOT changed the setting. The second season they totally changed it so Bobw as working for a greeting card company and they crowbarred in Betty White and jere Burns but the show was already staggering at that point. Seems like too much interference and second guessing. They should have left it alone and let the audience find it instead of the other way around (which failed anyway).
