Review: TED

Posted by: Andrew Burns  //  June 28, 2012 @ 12:12pm

He has the body of a Care-Bear and a mouth like Peter Griffin. He is Ted and yes he is real.

TED is the live-action directorial debut of Family Guy creator/lead voice actor Seth McFarlane. The premise to McFarlane's first feature film is just as ridiculous, if not more, as the on-again-off-again TV show that made him famous.

A few years ago, a co-worker told me that he was afraid of clowns. This phobia piqued my interest, and I asked him how clowns could possibly scare him. He told me that when he was young, he watched It, and ever since then, he was terrified of clowns.

It turned out the world was consumed with wanting presents, making the the North Pole into a mass manufacturing dystopia.

Family Guy: Welcome Back, Carter

Posted by: Lawrence Lee  //  October 10, 2010 @ 9:46pm

Most blackmail plots in comedy follow a very standard formula. Person A finds out that Person B did something bad, and Person B does not want Person C to find out.
