As I watched Oz the Great and Powerful, I came to a stunning conclusion: Sam Raimi's intentions are always met. What I mean by this is that when he wants you to laugh, you will laugh. When he wants you to scare you, you will feel fear. When he wants to build tension, you will be on the edge of your seat.
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.
Family Guy's appeal has relied on its type of humor, that usually consists of the absurd, nonsensical, and countless cutaways. In celebration of its 150th episode, the show did the complete opposite. The entire storyline, except for the brief introduction and the musical recaps, consisted of Brian and Stewie being stuck together in a bank vault.
