Not terribly funny, and too many stereotypes
6 October 2009 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Seth MacFarlane is enormously talented -- so talented that I think it's likely that I'm just missing the point of this show.

But it doesn't seem that funny to me.

Also, the way the show riffs on the black experience (or the way the black experience used to be portrayed in sitcoms) is hard for me. We're all supposed to be post-racial and cool about everything, because, you know, it's all behind us now.

But the youngest kid in particular is difficult for a middle aged guy like me -- the way he talks, what he says, and so on. It feels wrong.

And if I started to lay out what I think is wrong about it, the tough, foul mouthed kid -- an embryonic hoodlum, really -- someone could reasonably come back at me and say, "Well, what about Stewie? That doesn't bug you." I don't have a good answer for that. So maybe I'm wrong.

Maybe it's just that Stewie is funnier.

But I think that my discomfort is probably the point -- we're so cool now that we're all above it, beyond the history, and we can sit back and laugh about it all. Like, it was all just one big merry mixup or something. Can you believe what those guys used to think? Wow, glad that's over. Or at least it will be, once the President shows us his birth certificate. Can't be too careful.

It's funny because it transgresses that still sensitive taboo. And if there weren't uptight people like me, it wouldn't be edgy, and if it wasn't edgy, it wouldn't be funny.

So maybe this isn't just a bad review. Maybe I'm doing my part, establishing the edge, and making it funnier for the kids.

I really like the bear, though. The voice reminds me of some character from cartoons in the 70's, but I can't place it. The bear almost justifies the whole thing.
