I may do a quick podcast soon about this, but most likely not. I just saw the first 10 minutes of Family Guy’s latest abomination – Back to the Pilot. And then I stopped and the pain stopped too. Seth MacFarlane proves just how unfunny he is by living out the jokes he told in commentaries five years ago, mocking people who aren’t there to defend themselves, and overall being an ass. This story’s ‘plot’ is uninspired. It’s a commentary track to the Family Guy pilot. That’s it. It’s a commentary track. Said commentary track already exists on DVD. But now it’s an animated version of it.
Seth mocks the ‘bad artstyle’ the pilot had(it had more character and goofiness versus the sterile bullshit he does now). He mocks Lacey Chabert for leaving the role of Meg Griffin. When you remember Seth voices Stewie AND Brian, and they are the two pov characters watching the pilot again, you really do get the full scope of how asinine this whole episode is.
