It’s not often I have the opportunity to disagree with The Stranger’s David Schmader and the ultra-conservative American Family Association at the same time, but Family Guy is by far the funniest show currently on broadcast television, and I have absolutely no qualms about watching it with my 12-year-old daughter. (Children benefit from a robust comedy education.)
Sure, Family Guy is offensive and often way over the top, but it is the near total freedom of the creators to both offend and disappoint that makes possible some of the show’s funniest moments.
Gross? Yeah. Relentless? Well, that’s kinda the point. But man did my daughter and I bust a gut watching this scene.
