Walking the tightrope of politically correct humour and a mainstream audience, Family Guy manages to fuse The Simpsons’ accessibility with South Park’s crude and vulgar stylings to create one of the most critically acclaimed and most viewed mature cartoons of this generation.
Spearheaded by Peter Griffin, Family Guy focuses on his dim-witted and often dangerous exploits. After so many seasons, you would have thought Peter would learn his lessons, but you would be wrong. With each passing season, his antics become bigger, bolder and more excessive, leading to sidesplitting episodes week in week out.
The show teams Peter with a unique ensemble of Quahog natives, supporting his poor choices, painting a vivid picture of the modern American dream.
