Enjoy gay aliens and horny goldfish at home.
Oft-dismissed as Family Guys lesser sibling
or, as The Simpsons put it, a plagiarismo di plagiarismo this season is arguably better than either Seth MacFarlanes first attempt or recent seasons from Americas first family. Admittedly, the house pets alien Roger and libidinous goldfish Klaus arent as hilarious as Family Guys talking dog Brian, but terrorist-hating, all-American head-of-household Stan Smith more than compensates. His job in the CIA allows for political jabs and amusing gadgetry galore and for the inclusion of Patrick Stewarts recurring, self-lampooning role as his boss. Family Guys I cant believe they just said that humour is very much present and correct here if anything, the levels of wrongness are amped up. An entire episode deals with the joys of masturbation, another sees Stewarts CIA chief Bullock shagging Smiths teenage daughter, while the two-part season finale, Stan Of Arabia, sees our hero adopt local misogynist practices on a trip to Saudi Arabia. Surprisingly edgy, wonderfully filthy-minded and very funny stuff.
