Yes, Another Letter

Dear Seth MacFarlane,
Hi. Big fan. Um, look, love the shows. I know you’re working really hard out here in Hollywood, and I totally respect your ability to juggle two quality shows. Here’s the thing. Do you think you could leave all the political shit out of “Family Guy”? Yeah, I get it. Terrorists are bad, Bush is a monkey face, wocka, wocka, wocka. That stuff was truly hilarious…in 2002.
You have a perfectly fine show already all set up for that! Leave all the tongue-in-cheek political hilarity for “American Dad,” okay? Imagine how much better the world would be if, like, John Lennon had a second weirdo, esoteric, artsy crap band to ruin. Or if if Alan Alda had had a SECOND really boring, serious, dramatic TV show. Are you picking up what I’m throwing down here?
I don’t need to look to “Family Guy” to get a humorous and poignant perspective on gay marriage or presidential debates. I have “South Park” for that, and between you and me, they do it better.
I watch “Family Guy” because I think talking dogs are funny. Because I like babies with British accents. Because Peter Griffin sometimes trips over something or references pop culture from the ’80s. Leave this comedy gold alone.
Thank you.
Your pal,
Lauren
