Family Guy has returned once again to Fox and if you don’t watch it, I will kill you. Especially if you are a Nielson family. The opening quickly put to rest any fears of the show losing its sense of humour or randomness. The episode was not the best of the series by any means, but it was a consistently funny (hilarious at times) episode that is easily a good candidate for repeated viewings.
I’m not a man who enjoys spoiling jokes, so I will refrain from leaking anything… besides this one joke from the opening! 😉
(In the living room with the whole Griffin family)
Peter: Everybody I’ve got bad news. We’ve been cancelled!
Lois: Oh no! Peter how could they do that?
Peter: Well unfortunately Lois there’s just no more room on the schedule. We’ve just gotta accept the fact that FOX has to make room for terrific shows like Dark Angel, Titus, Undeclared, Action, That 80’s Show, Wonderfalls, Fastlane, Andy Richter Controls the Universe, Skin, Girls Club, Cracking Up, The Pits, Firefly, Get Real, Freaky Links, Wanda At Large, Costello, The Lone Gunmen, A Minute With Stan Hooper, Normal: Ohio, Pasadena, Harsh Realm, Keen Eddy, The Street, American Embassy, Cedric the Entertainer, The Tick, Louie, and Greg the Bunny.
Lois: Is there no hope?
Peter: Well I suppose if ALL those shows go down the tube then we might have a shot.
All hail the return of one of the greatest TV shows of all time. Let us hope and pray it will stay on the air for a good long run.
