Over the years, I have had many favorite TV shows. In no particular order, they have been The Cosby Show, Family Ties, Night Court, Cheers, Golden Girls, The Simpsons, Seinfeld, Entourage, Will & Grace, and Everybody Loves Raymond. I could do an individual post on each one of them, but I’m going to stick to my favorite for the past 8 years, Family Guy. I think part of my attraction to Family Guy is that I was there from the beginning. I thought it was great when it came out in 1999. I was angry when it was canceled. I purchased the DVDs, and now, I have been overly elated that it has been back on Fox for the past couple years. The comedy is fast-paced, smart, and is one of the few shows that has me laughing out loud every single week. No, the jokes don’t work all of the time, but that is part of the charm for me. They are willing to take risks with story lines and see what happens. Sometimes, that makes for the best comedy. As you can tell from the above clip, they turn a chicken fight into an extended joke that most shows wouldn’t even touch. And more than that, they have used the chicken fight in a couple episodes. And yes, Family Guy can be crude at times, but as I stated above, they always keep it smart.
