The Family Guy – So wrong in so many ways

So a group of writers sit around thinking it’ll be fun to make light of infidelity, compulsive sexual behavior, abortion, atheism, vehicular homicide.  That’s how The Family Guy kicked off its 7th season last night.  Wait. Come to think of it, that’s just about every episode of The Family Guy.
Oh yeah, then there’s the episode’s main story line about Brian the family dog avoiding sex with his new girlfriend (human, of course) who he met over the bookstore’s last copy of The God Delusion. Hold on, Brian’s always obsessing about some human on a sexual level.
Wrong enough for you yet?
Probably.  Unless you’re a regular viewer.  Then it’s just par for the course.  Nothing is sacred and everything is the object of humor.  I think that’s why I have become a fan of Family Guy reruns over the past few months.  I feel a little guilty every half hour I give up, but it’s usually good for more laughs than anything else on TV these days.
I especially appreciated what seemed to some an incredibly off-the-wall running gag of “boom goes the dynamite.”  That reminds me of the time somebody in the office shared a video clip of a student newscaster from Ball State University.   Brian Collins became famous with his on-air display of his need for more study in Broadcasting class.   Turns out Brian did land a job in television journalism; my dad taught me that if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all, so I’ll let you be the judge.
But I digress.  HA!  just like The Family Guy. That’s part of its charm I guess.
