Family Guy: Saving Private Brian

Stewie - Family Guy(S05E04) The ARMY, awwwww yeah. Finally, baseball is over and it can quit interfering with our television programs. It's been so long since a new Family Guy that this almost felt like a season premiere. The wait was worth it though, as they delivered the best episode of the young fifth season.

That was probably due in part to giving Stewie and Brian a big adventure. I always prefer their stories to those involving Peter. It's tricky with Peter. I think less is more. When they use Peter extensively, he can be grating. Tonight was just right. The Full Metal Jacket/Stripes angle for Stewie and Brian was great, right down to the Stripes music during the obstacle course. And Louis Gossett Jr. as Sergeant Angryman is a nice bit of casting.

What is THE BEST show on television?

by Anna Johns, posted Jul 18th 2006 8:45AM
question markAfter this season's nominations, we all know that the Emmys are a load of crap. Now the television critics over at TV Week think they know what are the best shows on television. In a semi-annual poll, critics voted Lost and The Sopranos as their favorite shows. Grey's Anatomy ranks No. 3. They also voted Unan1mous and The War at Home as the worst shows on television. Battlestar Galactica moved up to No. 11 and Desperate Housewives fittingly dropped from No. 2 to No. 23.

While I won't disagree on their picks for the worst programs, I do disagree on their choices for best television. This season's Lost wasn't so hot and The Sopranos seems tired. My hands-down favorite television program right now is The Office (tied for 19th among the critics). This season, I came to adore the characters. Everytime I hear the music for the opening credits, I can't help but bounce on the couch and clap my hands like a two-year-old.

What do you think is THE BEST show on television? Choose only one.

FOX chief makes funny joke

FOXFOX network chief Peter Liguori says that he's looking for great comedy shows for the network, and encourages writers to pitch him ideas:

"We have the best time slot on television to launch a show...if you're a comedy writer with a great idea, FOX is the place to come."

Two words Peter: Arrested Development.

Oh, I know, I know, the show isn't coming back. I'm not whining about it, and I'm not even saying it should come back. My point is that Liguori would make a statement like this with a straight face. FOX has had many great comedies over the past 10 years, and they've either canceled them, shuffled them around the schedule, or replaced them with lesser comedies.

You have the best time slot to launch a comedy? Hey, cancel The Loop and you'll have two.
