Narrator: And although the intervention didn’t work…it turned into one of the Bluth family’s better parties.
Spring Breakout - 2x17
submission from Phil Lombardi
Seth MacFarlane needs to stop. I understand his appeal. I don’t want to, but I do. Shows like Family Guy and movies like Ted have their place—it’s a filthy, sticky basement of a fraternity house, but it’s a place nonetheless. There is nothing wrong with smoking too much pot and chugging Natty Light while watching a stupid television show. But there is something wrong with this disgusting Cult of MacFarlane that just keeps helping him get more work. It’s a cult that finds nothing funnier than “black Stewie” Twitter parody accounts, that asks Yahoo! Answers questions like, “What pills does Quagmire use on women in Family Guy?”, and that sits in front of the television every Sunday to clap and cheer on a showrunner who often resorts to the same old “women belong in the kitchen” joke. Listen, if you want to be sexist/racist/homophobic or whatever, I can’t stop you, but for the love of God, MacFarlane, at least introduce some originality into your hatred. It’s so bland. You know what’s worse than being one of those “don’t watch my act if you can’t handle it” self-proclaimed offensive shock comics? Being a boring self-proclaimed offensive shock comic. That’s essentially what MacFarlane is. He’s gotten to the point where it’s hard to be offended by him, not because he’s isn’t offensive, but because everything he thinks is edgy has been done a million times before. I want to yell about his racism, but I can’t stop yawning.
Take the new show he’s co-producing, Dads, set to air Tuesdays this fall. It’s a FOX multi-camera comedy about two guys (perpetual manchild Seth Green and a slumming GiovanniRibisi) whose lives are totally changed when their fathers move in with them. It’s not the most interesting premise (and if MacFarlane wasn’t FOX’s baby, I could easily see it in the middle of a CBS comedy lineup). The preview was released yesterday and oh boy, it’s about as awful as you’d expect from the three men who last teamed up to bring us a movie featuring a stoned teddy bear who fucks hookers. For the most part, it’s all the expected jokes about deadbeat, cheap, and old fathers. But, because this is MacFarlane, we also get some truly lazy racism: Chinese people are distrustful! They hit their children with math books! The most cringeworthy moment features a “joke” about how Brenda Song (oh, honey, what are you doing?) should dress up as a “sexy Asian schoolgirl” to impress some investors. And you know what the hilarious payoff is? She dresses up as a sexy Asian schoolgirl. That’s it. That’s the joke. It makes you want to flip the channel to view the more subtle racism of a 2 Broke Girls episode. It’s stupid and it’s lazy. I know that no one is watching a MacFarlane penned sitcom in hopes of enjoying some high-brow, subversive, and wholly originally comedy. They’re watching it for cheap laughs, cutaway gags, outdated references. Not all television shows have to be intelligent, or even great, but at least give us something interesting to hate-watch, you know?

Buffy… What a classic. Buffy-Spike banter was so much better when you put aside their relationship drama. And I say this as someone who loves their chemistry and used to be a Spuffy shipper. But with hindsight… they should’ve left it alone or handled it differently.
Arsene is so dapper and healthy for a man of his age
Just saw a photo of myself with the light in my eyes and came to the conclusion my eyes can look rather menacing.
See? Zoomed in, I think it looks a bit scary. Or so I like to think. Not that I want people to think I’m a psycho but I tend to the sweet/innocent look so anything that drifts away from that is welcome. I think inheriting my father’s droopy eyebrow/lid/whatever you refer to that region above the eyes adds to the effect. I just know I’m going to hate that eye region in the future…
No makeup which is why my eyelashes are barely seen. Not a natural long eyelashes girl. I get desperately jealous when I see guys with wonderfully long lashes who don’t appreciate how lucky they are…
The last Game of Thrones episode was amazing! Iw as giggling and flailing like a crazy woman when Dany started speaking Valyrian and being all badass. So glad I wasn’t spoiled about her knowing Valyrian beforehand.
I could watch that scene over and over again. Possibly my favourite in GoT so far since it’s gotten the craziest reaction out of me so efer. I loved the wildifer but that moment wasn’t that amazing to em although the episode it was in as a whole might still beat this one. Ned getting his head chopped off was heartbreaking but I’d read it in the book beforehand and my reaction was just a teensy bit different.
Love you Dany! Back to rewatching the scene for the 15th time.5 notes
