Tv Season Info
Issues like patriotism, generational divide, political activism, and traditional gender roles are addressed here, all with more fantasy than reality, but enough of the latter to touch a nerve with some grown-ups.
When it's on, and it usually is, the show's stories are extremely strong, engrossing, and hilarious. It only comes down to wading through the weaker couple episodes to get to the good ones.
Oft-dismissed as Family Guy's lesser sibling - or, as The Simpsons put it, a "plagiarismo di plagiarismo" - this season is arguably better than either Seth MacFarlane's first attempt or recent seasons from America's first family.
