Greatest animated comedy ever?
on 30 December 2006
Family Guy is one of the funniest animated shows I have ever watched for a long time. The best thing about it is that where other animated shows seem to run out of ideas quickly and become tired Family Guiy has come on in leaps and bounds seeming never to run out of ideas to support episodes. Another good thing about episodes is that most of them support at least two stories at a time so you get to follow two or more members of the family which keeps you interested until the end of the episode. Some of the jokes on the show are a bit risque with some jokes poking at tender subjects such as the OJ Simpson scandal, racism, drugs and sex but this is why it retains some of it's charm as some jokes will make you laugh out loud and others will shock you and make you laugh later. The one flaw of the show is a lot of the jokes are relevant to american pop culture so it's hard for a Brit to follow some of the gags but it doesn't get lost in american pop culture so us Limeys can still laugh. Some people may tell you to start with the second or third season but don't, get the seasons in order or you may not get some of the jokes or understand the storylines as some are relevant to previous episodes.
