This week has been filled with quite a bit of Netflix. Due to being away from home, I’m watching mostly back catalogue shows. I’ve also been restricted because my girlfriend hates superhero tv shows (sad, sad times).
Family Guy has been a key feature this week, with us watching at least a few episodes per day. Most of these have been pretty great, especially the earlier seasons (before Stewie went from funny-evil baby to gay-evil baby). “Petarded” (Season 4, Episode 6) is one of the best episodes this series has ever aired. In this, Peter finds out that he is technically mentally retarded, and decides to exploit the situation. This results in him hospitalising Lois and losing custody of the children to Cleveland. This whole episode is classic Family Guy at its prime.
American Dad (Seth MacFarlane week over here in South Hill) has been another show we’ve been watching. I love the characters in this show, none more so than Roger. His flamboyant and overly dramatic character and endless supply of costumes and disguises provide laugh after laugh. Furthermore, Stan and Steve are great characters; my boss has compared me to Steve on a number of occasions – I don’t know if this is a good or bad thing??
I’ve something to admit. Star Wars: The Clone Wars is a television series I have never seen, although it has been on my watch list for practically forever. Before you all leave in disgust and despair, I’m changing this, and fast. So far I’m up to Season One, Episode 11 and it’s been amazing. It’s crazy that an actor who only plays the voice of a character can do a much better job than the person who plays them in films. Yes, I’m looking at you, Mr. Christensen. I’ve been binging this show over the past few days, usually while Abbey does her make up or other things that don’t involve me too much. I can’t wait to watch the rest of this show, and expand my knowledge of the Star Wars universe.
Any ideas on other shows I could watch? I’m open to any ideas, so shoot me a comment or two.
If you’ve made it this far once again, thanks for reading and I’ll see you again soon.
