LMAOWFG (Laughing My Ass Off Watching Family Guy)
Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious keep iggily biggily gollygoops psghetti reading pigglywiggly woospiedoo buddy spindingy capstcha zowzy!! Welcome my weirdo, I’m glad you made it through my gibberish start because honestly I didn’t know how to start my review of this epic animated sitcom which helped in making me a family guy since 1999. The show created by Seth MacFarlane, is focused on a family of a married couple and their teenage kids and a year old baby. This cartoon series had shown much promise during its early seasons which is clear by the fact that the show has been resurrected twice after being cancelled by Fox. Based on this fact only you can presume the height and depth of this comedy drama.
The man of the show, Peter Griffin (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) “Family Guy” is a fat white guy doing bizarrely stupid things unintentionally. His wife Lois Griffin (voiced by Alex Borstein) is a modern day woman who is often seen preventing Peter from doing his doings and mostly correcting them after our hero does it. Their eldest kid is a teenage daughter, Meg Griffin (voiced by Mila Kunis), who is loved by no one later in the series (more or less after season 2). Their middle child Chris Griffin (voiced by Seth Green) is a carbon copy of his dad. And then comes the 1-year old genius baby Stewie Griffin (also voiced by Seth MacFarlane) set upon destroying the world (especially his mother) and enslaving the humanity. This family frenzy of five is accompanied by an atheist English speaking dog Brian (again voiced by Seth MacFarlane) a struggling novelist who has much clearer understanding of life than our star of the show Peter.
To add more spice to the show we have Peter’s neighbours Joe Swanson, a paralysed over enthusiast cop (voiced by Patrick Warburton), Glen Quagmire (voiced by Seth MacFarlane, what’s wrong with this guy):P, an awesome pervert and Cleveland Brown (voiced by Mike Henry), a necessary black guy for the group to make things nasty. The show has some recurring characters also including the big names like Death (literally), Adam West, Jesus and God himself, Neil Goldman (not eww he’s jew) to make things more interesting.
The show offers a wide variety of topics which are crafted in a 20 minute length episodes like baseball, office, time travel, unemployment, alien invasion, cooking, horse riding, college stuff, spider-man, gollum, mountain climbing, AIDS, ragging, unprotected sex, prom night, gay guys, toy factory, Jews, executive bathroom, racism, Star Wars, celebrities, global warming, parallel universe, the big bang theory, shawshank redemption, thanksgiving, honeymoon, role play, jackasses and everything that you could possibly think of, it’s here. The show has been consistent in all 14 seasons and the amount of comedy stuffed throughout is unfathomable.
Though the episodes aren’t in much synchronisation but its always pleasant to watch in sequence. Luckily there’s a man who positively can do, all the things that make us laugggh and crrrryy…I present to you the Family Guy.
PS: If you think animated series are for kids only then give this show a try , you won’t be disappointed.
