The hype for the big Trump Guy episode is now over, and many people are shocked at what happened on the episode of Family Guy where Trump was royally roasted. I get where the shock over what happens on a channel like Fox, which is as conservative and anti-news as it gets, but I don't get the shock over the content. Honestly on any given day Trump himself has done much worse and at this point it's more shocking to me when people are surprised at anything.
For a show that's meant to cause laughter and poke fun at everything from pop culture to social commentary, Family Guy isn't always as funny as it's supposed to be. Plenty of jokes, like the ongoing feud with Ernie the giant chicken, grow stale quickly, and in our current culture of #metoo confessions and nasty men you wouldn't want on the subway with your daughter being elected or appointed into powerful positions where they could regulate said daughter's vagina, jokes about perverts just aren't as funny as they used to be.
Are any of you Family Guy fanatics planning on celebrating the show in costume this Halloween? There are more Family Guy costumes available than I ever even knew. Looking for one today, I saw that there's even a "woman's Brian costume" that's pretty much just a white dress with boots, ears and a martini glass! You can get masks for a lot of characters, too, like Stewie and Quagmire.
Have you ever wanted to watch the faces of all of your favorite Family Guy characters meld together and into each other so you'll never look at them the same way again? Yeah, us either, but one fan decided to take this idea to epic levels, making a video for us all to cringe over--eh, enjoy.
Family Guy pointed a finger at Kevin Spacey long ago without truly realizing how nefarious the actor was behind the scenes. Now the show has taken another jab at Spacey, or the media reporting on the actor, depending on how you look at the December 3 episode, "Crimes and Meg's Demeanor."
Family Guy's Freakin Mobile Game is out and reviews aren't all stellar, but it's what you would expect from a free match game with different levels to unlock from game challenges. Some of the worst complaints stem from the terrible dialogue between characters and the lack of any real creativity in the game, but most fans agree that the app reminds them of the show, and isn't that what it should do?
In a recent survey, it was revealed that over 58% of people surveyed admit to watching TV before they doze off for the night. Doctors tell us not to view screens for at least 30 minutes before sleep for better rest—and research does say that those who refrain from TV viewing at night do enjoy more, better sleep—but it can be soothing for some people, particularly those who sleep alone.
