Family Guy: Blind Ambition

Welcome back Mort! Boy do I miss the Jerky Boys. The chicken scene was a little long, but the Raiders payoff was worth it. I like the Cleveland back story, who would have thought? Nickel sex has to be a dirty, dirty sin. Even Gary the No-Trash Cougar thinks so. The only reason you ever read the Guinness Book of World Records was to see the guy with the long fingernails and the twins on the bikes....

The Simpsons: The Father, Son and the Holy Guest

How many times can Bart be expelled from Springfield Elementary? So this time it’s Catholic school, wake me when it’s over. Actually I’m glad I stayed awake. It wasn’t a great episode, but when The Simpsons takes on stereotypes and religion it’s always interesting to watch. So take that Popey La Pew! And who would have thought that Marge would have the theme from...

The Simpsons: Home Away from Homer

Now that FOX has ushered the end of The Simpsons season three weeks early thanks to two episodes a week, tonight we say adios to season 16 with another doubleheader. This episode reminded me how sexy stupid Flanders is, how enticing flashing banner ads are and how much I want a “First Allergic Reaction” Humble. And the crazy cat-lady flinging felines is always good for a cheap laugh...

Family Guy: Fast Times at Buddy Cianci High

Do I have to even point out that the Law and Order opening was genius? No? OK then, I’ll move on. I will reiterate and say again, I am so glad that Family Guy is back. The new episodes make up for any damage that last week’s American Dad did to my brain. Seth's infatuation with the Wonder Twins continues and more disturbing than ever. And I’ll never use mint flavored dental...

The Simpsons: Thank God its Doomsday

So Simpsons storylines are getting thin, huh? Now they’re going after the “Left Behind” franchise. Again this week FOX felt like killing another two episodes in one night so the season ends earlier than it should. Damn them! I will now rattle off some random thoughts: Dumpster buns, shirt wieners, Cannonball Run 2, Rapture for Dummies, Nostra-dumbass and leprechaun labor. And...

The Simpsons: A Star is Torn

Well, this week I'll share my laisser-faire attitude towards American Idol. If I said I have no idea who Fantasia Barrino is, would you hold it against me? Two weeks in the row for failed guest voices, oh well. Why can’t the real American Idol get a trap door “flavor hole"? It might make it more interesting. Lenny Leonard continues with his one-liners and Krusty gets the best...

The Family Guy: North by North Quahog

Was the list of failed Fox shows that Peter rattles off payback enough? The fact they left Greg the Bunny for last was certainly on purpose and almost makes up for it. Disturbing Honeymooners, Pinocchio and Mel Gibson clips puts The Family Guy back in stride. It’s like they never left. I think the best part of the show is that I can sense every time some uptight viewer was...

The Simpsons: The Heartbroke Kid

Skinner’s Swingline attack and the re-opening of the show with overweight Bart made up for the boredom that the first show made me sit through. The stapler-remover medic and Bart’s heavier skateboard ride was good enough to cause out-loud guffaws. And I can’t help but love any character voiced by Albert Brooks. <Homer>That man is more of a genius than that genius guy that...

The Simpsons: Dont Fear the Roofer

So, I was never caught up in the whole Everyone Loves Raymond whirlwind. I didn’t care when it debuted, and don’t really care that Ray Romano is on The Simpsons. Not that I dislike Ray Romano, Mannnny the Mammoth was good voice-over, but he didn’t help this episode. No one could help this episode. As I brace for two new episodes and the first new Family Guy in...

The Simpsons: Future-Drama

Another future-based Simpsons episode (we haven’t had one of those for a few seasons) with a few reminders of that “other” Groening cartoon. This time we see Bart and Lisa at their final years of high school. I find something very disturbing-looking about Springfield Elementary students in their teens. Kudos to Kodos on TiVo, complete with annoying blurps. I’ll give the...
