Family Guy Season Premiere Review: "And Then There Were Fewer"
Family Guy made its high definition debut last night with its season nine premiere, and what better way than with a beautiful computer-generated intro for their Clue-style episode?
Besides having a visual feast of an intro, the murder plot was actually fairly cleverly done and brought together pretty much the entire Family Guy cast of characters and allowed them all to play off each other as we attempted to solve the mystery.
While there were certainly times the plot dragged on, the show's style of constant jokes kept us entertained for the full hour. That's impressive for a cartoon. We may have saw the twist ending coming, but again, it's a cartoon. We're here for the jokes.
So, without spoiling the surprise ending, there's not much more we can say in our review, so we'll just leave you with some of our Family Guy quotes after the jump.
Carl: So in the bear world, are pandas like your version of interracial children?
Bear: Yeah Pandas are something I don't agree with.
Carl: They're cute though right?
Bear: Just when they're babies. | permalink
Tom Tucker: The same thing happened to me... but with a mustache. | permalink
Peter: I assumed it was for being able to fart the alphabet, which I almost did before I pooped the "s." Owell, everyone was upset on the bus long before that. | permalink
James Woods: Look, I'm a number of things. A member of Mensa. A huge hit with the ladies. Someone who would have broken bigger if he wasn't so impossible to work with. But a murderer!? | permalink
