I don’t watch much TV. Maybe it’s a window into my personality, but TV requires a commitment, even with DVR, that a 90 to 120 minute movie theater viewing does not. Plus, excluding some cable TV shows, most of the drama on the boob tube is sub-par storytelling and bland acting, at best. I realize movies don’t always knock it out of the park, but like a one-night-stand, at least I can sneak out of bed and not feel obligated to call ever again.
Still, there are a few gems on television. The Walking Dead has been pretty decent, I usually catch 90% of Utah Jazz basketball, and I can’t ever get enough Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, Man v. Food and, the reason for this post – Family Guy. Sure, sure, I know – how could I possibly enjoy a profane, irreverent cartoon?! Don’t I have any care or concern for the delicate minds of kids who might watch Family Guy? Sure, I suppose I do, but like The Simpsons, sometimes truth and wisdom are best learned from a robust, spot-on, humorous slap to the face. Just ask Archie Bunker.
At any rate, check out the trailer for the third installment of the Family Guy Star Wars saga, this one aptly titled It’s a Trap! Did you watch Blue Harvest and Something Something Something Dark Side? Looking forward to this new chapter? Inquiring minds want to know!
