Tribute to The Family Guy

The Family Guy was a show I was introduced to during the time I was in college in Hawaii. My first reaction was, "Oh my God! It's like the Simpsons but much more racy." Alright, I probably didn't think the words "much more racy" at the time. It was more like "as close to the edge as possible" or pushing-the-envelope-for-all-it-was-worth kind of funny.

The first episode I watched, I was a little shocked in the first couple of minutes, but then I remember being in pain as I grabbed my aching sides...because I was laughing so hard, of course. My favorite character on the show is Stewie Griffin who I've paid tribute to on this blog already. Well, I do also like Brian's character, and it seems to me that both of these characters share a quirky camaraderie.

The thing I like most about The Family Guy is the fact that it takes funny to the verge of the absurd. The manner in which it deals with its subject matter is so politically incorrect that you can only wonder about how they make it onto our TV screens. All of this wondering while you're dying of laughter, of course. In fact, almost as soon as I was first introduced to this show, it was taken off the air. Twice! How's that for so-controversial-you-have-to-see-what-it's-about.

Much like Dan Castellaneta from The Simpsons, who does several voices on the show, Seth MacFarlane does all the male voices of the members of the family, as well as creating and being Executive Producer for the show. I said it on the Simpsons post, but I'll say it again...Now THAT's talent!

There's a movie titled "Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story" which is worth a look-see. I know I didn't make it sound all that exciting, and I apologize. I remember it being hilarious, but I watched it a long time ago so I can't recall all, or any, of the funnies. All in all, a great show that you have to get your hands on if you haven't already.
