Are you saying Boo or Boo-urns? A review of ‘The Simpsons Guy’

The Simpsons Guy

Deep down, we all knew that a Simpsons-Family Guy crossover was inevitable. Despite the shows' potshots at one another (culminating in a rape / murder joke from Family Guy that pushed me off the show for good, except for when I need background noise) the idea of putting the two together was too much of a cashgrab to deny. And so, a few weeks ago, it came to be ... the Griffins went to Springfield and met the Simpsons during The Simpsons Guy. MORE

Oh yeah, they brought back Brian on ‘Family Guy’

Family Guy

Remember when they killed off Brian Griffin on Family Guy a couple weeks back? Well surprise! They brought him back. Via Us Weekly ... Brian the dog was resurrected from the dead! Or rather, the pup's impending death was prevented via a time machine, traveled by Stewie after the sadistic baby was granted his Christmas wish by a mall Santa during Sunday night's episode. "I mean, you didn't really think we'd kill off Brian, did you?" MacFarlane MORE

‘Family Guy’ fans petition to bring back Brian

Family Guy Brian

As much as I tend to criticize Family Guy, there's always been one aspect of the show that brings me back: Brian Griffin. Essentially serving as Seth MacFarlane's voice among the cast, a lot of the show's best storylines and episodes tend to revolve around Brian (and usually Stewie) because of just how layered they are as characters. Family Guy has never had what I would call the greatest level of respect and care for their characters, but Brian MORE

Crossover: The Simpsons + Family Guy

The Simpsons + Family Guy

Apparently, the feud between Family Guy and The Simpsons is good and buried, because according to Entertainment Weekly, Fox is working on a crossover special between the two shows. Man, this is even weirder than the time Fran Drescher did something something joke completely unrelated to everything I just wrote because apparently that's how comedy works now. Simpsons castmembers Dan Castellaneta, Julie Kavner, Nancy Cartwright, Yeardley Smith MORE

Family Guy’s Boston Marathon episode was pulled

Family Guy

A couple months back, Family Guy ran an episode where Peter wins the Boston Marathon by driving his car through it, then bombs the Quahog bridge in two completely different scenes that have nothing to do with each other. Unfortunately, someone saw those, said "HERP DERP CONSPIRACY!" and tried to frame it as Seth MacFarlane either predicting the bombings or somehow acting as the government's puppet or ... something. Honestly, the whole falls apart MORE

There could be a ‘Family Guy’ movie someday!

Family Guy

Oh come on, you knew this was going to happen eventually, right? Family Guy is one of the most popular entertainment phenomena since HBO realized you can show nipples late at night. The show's been cancelled twice, and was the first show to ever be brought back based on DVD sales. So of course, Seth MacFarlane is talking about bringing it to the big screen. Via HuffPo: The 39-year-old entertainer urged the aspiring filmmakers and MORE

‘Family Guy’ maybe screwed itself out of an Emmy

Family Guy

I'll admit it, but despite what some of its detractors say, Family Guy is still what I would call a "decent show". It's fairly hit-or-miss now, but when the show focuses on one specific plot like (see: any episode focusing on Brian and Stewie) or plays to a specific genre (the fantastically underrated "And Then There Were Fewer") it becomes an absolutely solid show. Unfortunately, it mostly eschews these in favor of shock horror without emotional MORE
