Jay Sherman doesn't say "steenks". Perhaps you are confusing it with the comedic stylings of children's entertainer Jeff Dunham.

God this looks bad. It's not even the kind of semi defendable/predictable humor of Family Guy or American Dad. Thing is, McFarlane is a pretty witty guy. I didn't intend to watch it but someone was watching A Million Ways to Die in the West and it's good for what it is, just kind of a half assed (but thoughtful) Blazing Saddles, which was a nice departure from other "spoof" movies like Scary Movie and the like. But this..

Xenocide - 2015-08-17

Didn't Seth try this "LET'S DO A POLITICS SHOW" approach with American Dad? It was originally sold as Liberal Daughter VS Conservative Father, and that angle lasted like four episodes before it just became about the alien doing wacky random stuff.

How many episodes before the immigration angle is completely discarded and we're just left with a show about two dumb fat guys vomiting on things?

Anaxagoras - 2015-08-17

I don't see the problem with shows jettisoning their premise. Aqua Teen Hunger Force did that after like 3 episodes and it's usually pretty awesome. Or it was, back when I watched it.

But this show.... WTF MacFarlane? I usually find his stuff oddly watchable... sort of a guilty pleasure. But this is pure shit. I... I don't understand what he was going for here. I have a feeling he doesn't know either.

infinite zest - 2015-08-17

I guess it should be noted that MacFarlane is executive producer and not creator like he was with FG and AD (and even the Cleveland Show) which might explain the different style and tone.. what they're doing letting a Family Guy writer do their own show is beyond me though. Bets on how long this lasts?

It's like if the stereotypical mexican characters from Squidbillies mated with the ugliest people in the Bob's Burgers universe.

I'm sure this will help foster the desperately needed mature discussion people need to be having about making immigration easier and how to recognize the serious misunderstanding most citizens have with the immigration process.


Kabbage - 2015-08-17

Holy fucking fartpants.

They actually tried to rip off the art style of Bob's Burgers and still cronenberged it up.

"Golden age of television" my ass.

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2015-08-17

It's the golden age of non network television. The networks are sinking fast.

Stopheles - 2015-08-17

The "Golden Age of Television" that people are referring to is the TV that comes closest to 1970s American film. It's the stuff on cable.

The networks, by comparison, are putting out stuff that comes close to 1970s American TV - celebrities dancing and crappy sitcoms.

Old_Zircon - 2015-08-17

What's television?

infinite zest - 2015-08-17

There are always a few.. I was never a big Arrested Development fan but I understand why so many people were, and since I was working at a house that didn't have cable I watched a lot of Backstrom. Maybe I'm a bit biased because it takes place in Portland (but inexplicably filmed in Vancouver BC which is more expensive to film in) but it reminded me of an HBO show stuck on a network station. It was replaced by a show where people try to hit targets by being shot out of cannons and such. Guess which one got renewed?

Spit Spingola - 2015-08-18

more like a golden shower of television because piss

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2015-08-17


Just watching this is the trailer equivalent of passing a stone.

Ugh - 2015-08-17

what if... *wipes brow* what if... king of the hill and that jalapeno puppet on a stick were in a buddy cop movie

Ugh - 2015-08-17

beans on a cracker

we'll be "wetback" after these messages from our sponsors

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2015-08-18

I have no doubt that Jeff Dunham will be lining up to this shit for a guest spot. Maybe the jalapeno can have adventures with a wacky talking lesbian chupacabra!

Rodents of Unusual Size - 2015-08-18

also I realize I unwittingly called out to you, possibly as a subconscious cry for help. Good job, ugh.

Ugh - 2015-08-18

it's okay im just a much less charismatic version of beetlejuice

StanleyPain - 2015-08-17

Holy shit this looks like "Sweet Bro and Hella Jeff" the network cartoon.

Can the fucking argument now end about how shitty and lazy Seth McFarlane is?

SolRo - 2015-08-17

I'm not sure if he's shitty, but maybe he surprised himself at how low the comedy bar needs to be for a successful show, so he just phones it in.

Ugh - 2015-08-17

you know what, i saw the title and expected yet another step in the weird minions-like expansion of the borderlands franchise

15th - 2015-08-17

I dunno looks pretty good 2 me

Xenocide - 2015-08-17

Ahahaha look, Peter from Family Guy showed up for one whole second! I recognize that character! I bet sticking him in there took way more effort than thinking of a joke!

dairyqueenlatifah - 2015-08-17


Rodents of Unusual Size - 2015-08-18

That would be funny! Maybe Brian will be there too! They should have him drinking tequila! And the tequila bottle should also be a character! Just think of the laughter!

chumbucket - 2015-08-18

And then he makes a fart sound at the end and there's a silent moment...for laughter!!!

BHWW - 2015-08-17

Even more unappealing than the FG character style.

Hailey2006 - 2015-08-18

I can just imagine that shit fit Mr. Enter is going to throw about this!

opps, dupe post!

Prickly Pete - 2015-08-18

I'm a big Family Guy fan. I like American Dad and even The Cleveland Show as well. I like Seth's movies too. This looks horrible. On top of horrible writing, I have a very low tolerance for animated shows that look ugly as fuck. It's why I can't force myself to watch Bob's Burgers even though everyone says it's great.

EvilHomer - 2015-08-18

I'm OK with Family Guy. I think a lot of the criticism leveled against it is valid, and it's probably my least favorite of the major "adult" cartoon shows (Simpsons, Futurama, South Park, Bob's Burgers, etc) but I loved it as a teenager, and despite not aging well, I would never say I "hate" Family Guy.

I tried watching American Dad. I think I've seen like eight episodes; I laughed precisely once the entire time, and that was at a sight gag involving furries. And The Cleveland Show, I saw the premier episode, and couldn't bring myself to watch it even a second time!

You make a good point about the animation style, Mr Pete. I was going to remark that the character designs look vaguely Bob's Burgers-esque; the lumpy heads and body proportions, in particular, strike me as a hybrid of traditional Family Guy and BB art styles. It looks really ugly, much uglier than either Family Guy or Bob's Burgers on their own. It also seems really flat, with washed-out colours and half-assed backgrounds that the characters blend into. Normally I'd say, it's the pilot, things will get better with time, but at this point I'm not willing to give anything Seth MacFarlane does the benefit of the doubt.

infinite zest - 2015-08-18

I've only seen a handful of Cleveland Shows, but I did appreciate how "regular sitcom" it was in comparison to FG. No real for-shock moments or constant flashbacks, just kind of a regular show, like a slightly zanier King of the Hill. I also like how MacFarlane, at some point must've said "fuck it let's throw in a talking bear that he works with."

American Dad's the best out of the three. The one where Stan gets the family a dog is one of the most touching things I've seen on any animated program (it's also really gross and fucked up but it finds balance in the two somehow perfectly.) I mean, there's far better stuff to spend your time watching in this world, but if you're ever stranded at a hotel with basic cable and there's nothing else on..
