Family Guy on Fox

By Joey Bozell

The animated sitcom Family Guy can always be relied upon to provide some of the most offensive material television has to offer.  The show and its writers routinely celebrate the most grotesque themes they can conceive of, but in this week's episode they have reached a new low.


The episode's main storyline revolves around the teen daughter, Meg, and her obsession with the family dog, Brian.  In the opening scene Meg comes home crying because she can't find a date to her school dance.  After she threatens to kill herself with a knife Brian reluctantly offers to take her.  While at the dance Brian is continuously drinking in an effort to make the night go by faster.  At one point during the dance Brian is very drunk and "makes out" with Meg.  Immediately after they stop kissing Brian pukes on the ground, then looks up at Meg and asks, "You gonna eat that?"


The next morning, in the kitchen, Meg begins acting very flirtatious with Brian.  When Meg leaves the room baby Stewie says to Brian, "Well she seems to have taken a shine to you Brian.  With a little encouragement you might get her to put her ankles behind her ears."  This type of dialogue is offensive enough, never mind the fact that it's coming out of the mouth of a baby boy and was directed to a dog. But the Family Guy writers were just getting warmed up.


Later in the episode Meg suggests to Brian, the dog, that they should become boyfriend and girlfriend.  Looking for a way out Brian says, "Uh you know what's strange? I think I might be gay.  I saw this penis on the internet today and I thought to myself 'well, that's just fine.'"  Then as Meg presses Brian to take her to the mall to "pick out underwear" he tells her that he's spending the day "masturbating" with Chris.  Chris then says, "Well maybe back to back, but I gotta tell ya, I'm not a 100% on this."  This disgusting storyline did not end there, though.


Later, Brian tries to tell Meg that their kiss was a mistake and that they should just remain friends.  Upset, Meg asks, "Did I do something wrong?  Was it because I didn't sniff your butt first?"  Meg then becomes obsessed with Brian and kidnaps him.  Meg and Brian are next shown in a hotel room with Brian tied to a chair.  Meg then strips down to her bra and panties and climbs on Brian's lap in an effort to seduce him.


Accompanying the Meg and Brian storyline was other highly offensive content.  In one scene the old man who is a suspected pedophile is being robbed by a gang of young children.  As they check his pockets for valuables the old man encourages them saying, "I hope you don't find the money strapped to my thigh."  In another scene Brian unintentionally tells a joke about him performing oral sex on Meg.  He says to Lois, "This morning she made me eat the hair in her pie."  In the final scene the next door neighbor, Quagmire, is seen preparing for a threesome with two other women.  He walks into the bedroom wearing only his underwear and a ball-gag.  When he walks in the bedroom two half-naked woman are lying on the bed and ask him if he has the whip.


Foul language included in this episode were "whore," "bastard," and "bitch."


This disgraceful episode demonstrates these writers have absolute no boundaries.  It's becoming more and more obvious their mission is to provide the most offensive content they can imagine and in turn proves that don't have an ounce of respect for the families watching at home.  This is why Family Guy is our pick for Worst of the Week.
