** Animal abuse is a good way to get especially harsh criticism from Bob. His Big Picture episode about [[AnimalWrongsGroup PETA]] mostly used it's tangential relation to video games (PETA complaining about [[SuperMarioBros Mario's Tanooki Suit]] as a way to discuss their habit of killing almost all of the animals they receive. On a later episode, when talking about Michael Vick being in the running to appear on the front cover of the (then) next ''Franchise/MaddenNFL'', he stated that he considered his illegal dog fighting ring to be among the worst things a human could possibly do, short of cloning AdolfHitler or [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking greenlighting another]] ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking movie]].

Bob "Moviebob" Chipman, also known as "The Game Overthinker", is a self-proclaimed "Z-list internet celebrity" who maintains a pair of vlogs on [=YouTube=] and a [[http://gameoverthinker.blogspot.com/ Blogspot site]], and also contributes to [[http://screwattack.com/ Screw Attack]]. He used to contribute to [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/profiles/view/MovieBob The Escapist]] before being let go on Feburary 13, 2015. He rips apart bad movies, but his particular shtick is giving analyses of gaming culture and the industry, in a style closely reminiscent of college-lit-class style "close reading", overlaid with appropriate (and sometimes humorous) images. Bob's analyses are very much like you would see from a troper. Indeed, [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/columns/moviebob/7190-Trope-a-Dope he's written an article]] that refers to "a genuinely wonderful website called TV Tropes".

* GenreDeconstruction: He [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tmSI0Ua2Uvg describes]] ''WesternAnimation/BobsBurgers'' as a this to the IJustWantToBeSpecial fantasy of creative misfits whose geeky interests and outcast nature turn out to be their source of superiority, as seen with the ComicBook/XMen, [[ComicBook/SpiderMan Peter Parker]], [[Series/FamilyMatters Steve Urkel]], and [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Lisa Simpson]]. He sees this trope as carrying the unstated implication that creative misfits and ugly ducklings who ''don't'' "show them all" later in life deserve all the mockery they get from their peers, which is part of the reason why he loves ''Bob's Burgers''. Bob and his family members are all invested in one creative field or another, except they're all ''bad'' at it... yet this doesn't matter, because, at the end of the day, they're still portrayed as a loving family who all have value as human beings.

* OneOfUs: Has heard of Wiki/TVTropes, as even references it in his review of ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}} Forever After''.
** From his {{Twitter}}: "[[https://twitter.com/#!/the_moviebob/status/167889226552193025 It'd be the HEIGHT of gauche to edit one's own TV Tropes entry, right?]]"
