I'm not surprised so many Americans hate this show...
14 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

...just like the person before me said: this show has sophisticated humor. I mean South Park, come on. How many times can you laugh at "Oh My God they killed Kenny!". South Park is ok. But Bob and Margaret is way way better and much funnier. Of course I don't expect you yanks to understand it. British humor is way different than American humor. This show is full of sarcasm and wit. Realistic characters. It's a great social parody and it doesn't need potty humor to get laughs. I laugh much harder watching Bob and Margaret than South Park. The animation and humor is brilliantly thought out... I personally think it would be a crime to take this off the air. It is one of the few animated shows made for adults that has class.
