Funny, charming, and new. Go watch this!
30 September 2011 | by cheekiegrapesSee all my reviews

I'm genuinely surprised at how many seriously negative reviews this got. What is going on here?? I don't think it's as good as American Dad or Family guy so far ( I've only seen the first 6 or so episodes of season 1), but I think it's quite funny and has a lot of charm. I'm thinking maybe people are giving this negative reviews because they aren't quite relating to the show as well... or perhaps they're having trouble with a pretty regular character from Family Guy completely removed from that show? I don't know, but this is a great addition to Seth's work.

The bears are just hilarious (I love their inexplicable accents) and the redneck neighbors are great. The dynamics between Cleveland and his new family and neighbors are still developing, but I think it's already making for a good show. I personally would rate American Dad as number one, then Family Guy, and then the Cleveland Show, but they are all deliciously funny and well done. Definitely give this show a chance. Seth MacFarlane is amazingly funny and is a man after my own heart!
