I’ll be honest: When I first watched Bob Hearts Abishola, I had low expectations.
I jumped right into the first season not knowing much about the show, except for the fact that one of my closest friends loved it and that Chuck Lorre, creator of the brilliant sitcom The Big Bang Theory, was a co-creator of the series. Although this knowledge was enough to pique my curiosity, I knew better than to get my hopes up. After all, I'd already gone through my fair share of overrated sitcoms. I was not going to make that mistake again.
So you can imagine my surprise when, just 10 minutes into the pilot, I was cackling non-stop. From the way that Dottie shrieked "BAHB!" to Abishola's bold and honest comebacks, this show already had me hooked. And now that the series has kicked off its second season, I'm fully prepared to watch it religiously (and gush about it to anyone who will listen).
Whether you loved The Big Bang Theory or not, I promise you, this TV show will feel like a much-needed breath of fresh air. See below for details about the CBS sitcom and why you should start watching.
