So evidently a lot of people are excited that Fox is bringing back “The Family Guy” after canceling it. I can’t really see why – while I always like to see a RISD grad make good, I could never get into that show. The character of the baby is not as funny as the creators seem to think, and the son’s voice is extremely grating, never a good feature. Can’t watch it.
I’m also a little bitter that a mediocre production like “The Family Guy” is getting a second chance when the true comedy gold, “Greg the Bunny” was axed without a second thought. Sarah Silverman, Eugene Levy, and puppets? C’mon! Warren Demontague is a monkey god. How anyone can get through life without slipping “I’m going to be spending the weekend in wine country . . . that’s what I call the room above my garage” into casual conversations, well, I just don’t understand. But there it is, Fox kicked the show around for a few months and then killed it. A tragedy.
