Family Guy is the only major animated comedy show ever made. It is not an episode that is not fun.The creator, Seth McFarlane is a genius. His humor is clever and uses each scene to bring out the laughter. He has a unique style in his writing, which incorporates flashback sequences. This tactic gives you the opportunity to hilarious (and often ridiculous) scenes from the series without disturbing the flow.The characters follow the basic formula for a family sitcom. Peter is fat, stupid father. Lois is smart, sexy woman. Chris is basically his father with a teenage twist. Meg is the girl who is desperate to attract attention. These figures alone are enough for a hit show, but McFarlane adds a few twists. He has a grown son and mocking dog and one who is bent on world domination, it is after killing his mother, Lois, in the first place. Each character is guaranteed to make you laugh and only the main characters. Secondary characters (such as sex obsessed friend Peter, a swamp) is pure gold.
