Each year, Bob’s Burgers seems to be a mixed bag and the same can be said about Season 11. Of course, things looked a lot different when the season premiered at the end of 2020 and carried into the following year. One thing has stayed consistent throughout the show’s Season 11 run and it’s that the episodes were a mish-mash of great and not-so-great.

At the end of each season though, it’s nice to look back and see which episodes didn’t get nearly as much love as they should have. That’s the case with any show, but there are definitely some
Bob’s Burgers episodes fall through the cracks. Season 11 seemed like it was made for that moniker as the show didn’t seem to get as much hype as it previously had.

Nevertheless, Season 11 still concluded with 22 episodes which is the standard for the Belchers. It also featured its fair share of musical moments, holiday episodes, and tons of funny parodies of popular media. While Season 11 didn’t get nearly as much love, the show obviously still captivated audiences enough to earn not one but a two-season renewal from Fox.

With Season 11 now wrapped, it’s fun to look back at some underrated episodes and show some love to those episodes.

Which Season 11 Bob’s Burgers episodes are severely underrated?

No list about Bob’s Burgers would be complete without a holiday episode and Season 11’s most underrated holiday episode had to be “Romancing the Beef.” Serving as the show’s Valentine’s Day episode, it managed to make a romantic episode without being over-the-top and cheesy. Upon Louise’s suggestion, the family turns the restaurant into “Urge” as a way to attract customers on Valentine’s Day while Tina attends an anti-Valentine’s Day party.

Overall, “Romancing the Beef” shows the whole Belcher family at their best especially Louise who is a mastermind the entire episode. Of all the holiday episodes, Valentine’s Day is usually forgotten so it would only be right to give a shout-out to Season 11’s outing.

The next honorable mention goes to “Tell Me Dumb Thing Good,” which is a rare episode featuring Linda and the kids teaming up. Linda and the kids decorate a local trash can but get thwarted every time. Eventually, we find out that it’s Cynthia, Linda’s nemesis and it spirals from there before Louise is able to save the day. While Bob does play a role in the episode, this one is more about Linda and the kids, making for a fun and unique episode.

The final honorable mention has to go to “Bridge Over Troubled Rudy.” Once again, we see an appearance from a familiar face and that’s Regular-Sized Rudy. The Belcher kids visit Rudy and find out he has an exploding bridge which he’s keeping at his dad’s house but Louise is determined to deliver it to him so she can see the explosion. It ends up in a convoluted plan, resulting in things go awry from the start before Louise is able to admit she’s wrong.

As for the second plotline, we watch as Bob takes up meditation and it ends up being a huge help for him. For Bob and Louise, this episode features some major character growth and allows us to see another side of these two. While it might be not as flashy of an episode, the character growth is what made it so great.

And the most underrated Bob’s Burgers episode of Season 11 is…

Topping the list of most underrated episodes of Season 11 has to be “Die Card, or Card Trying.” It seemed a little out-of-place, but the episode was incredibly sweet. However, it doesn’t seem to get talked about nearly enough so let’s get into what happened in the episode.

Feeling jealous of other families and their great pictures, Linda makes it her mission to get the perfect Belcher family photo. Things are going great until Linda’s arm accidentally gets stuck between a rock and she’s left, dangling the camera. Dead-set on not letting it fall, the family tries everything to make sure they save the camera. It’s a whirlwind of an episode and you never know what to expect when it comes to the Belchers.

Ultimately, this episode is just so incredibly sweet and family-focused. It truly takes the entire family to save the picture and make sure Linda is okay. While it might not be as exciting or fun as other episodes, it cements what Bob’s Burgers is truly about and that’s the love of a family. It’s a little cheesy, but that’s why the restaurant serves cheeseburgers.
