Happy Birthday to the Man who gave us Family Guy

Today is Seth Macfarlane’s birthday, so Happy Birthday! In light of this special day, we thought we would remind you of his many accomplishments in Hollywood. We can think of no better way to celebrate this occasion than by watching one of his hilarious shows. For those of you unaware of just who he is, MacFarlane is an American actor, animator, cartoonist, writer, producer, director, and comedian (wow is that all!?). Forbes magazine estimated his net worth to be a whopping $150 million as of June 2014! This placed him at 86 on Forbes’ Top 100 Celebrities list. Bottom line, he is a very influential, successful and hilarious man in Hollywood – and it’s his birthday! So heres 5 of his best pieces of work for you to indulge in!


Seth MacFarlane Masterpieces:

1. Family Guy
Sick, twisted, politically incorrect and Freakin’ Sweet animated series featuring the adventures of the dysfunctional Griffin family. Bumbling Peter and long-suffering Lois have three kids. Stewie (a brilliant but sadistic baby bent on killing his mother and taking over the world), Meg (the oldest, and is the most unpopular girl in town) and Chris (the middle kid, he’s not very bright but has a passion for movies). The final member of the family is Brian – a talking dog and much more than a pet, he keeps Stewie in check whilst sipping Martinis and sorting through his own life issues.


Fun Fact: The fancy French restaurant featured in multiple episodes is named L’espece D’andouille. This name, when translated into English, is a type of sausage. The French meaning is “a stupid fool”.
2. American Dad
cdn4-static-ovimg-1 C.I.A. Agent Stan Smith is constantly fighting off terrorists who threaten the safety of the USA (sometimes causing more harm than good). His wife Francine is an average house wife with two kids, Hayley, Stan’s only daughter, an average rebellious teenager and Steve, Stan’s only son, a geek who enjoys Dungeons and Dragons, gaming and comic book conventions. Then there’s Roger, the home’s illegal (space) alien who the Smith’s are keeping protected. Last but not least, there’s Klaus, the Smith’s wisecracking talking fish (swapped from his human body years ago by the CIA).


Fun Fact: In the opening sequence, you can see Barry, Toshi, and Snot looking into an adult store.
3. The Cleveland Show
The Cleveland Show is a “Family Guy” spin-off following Cleveland Brown, who has moved from Quahog, R.I., to Stoolbend, Va., where he becomes a family guy himself, settling down with his high-school flame and her unruly kids as well as his own teenage son, Cleveland Jr.


Fun Fact: In Cleveland jr.’s room there is a R2D2 Cleveland from Family Guy Star Wars.
4. Robot Chicken
 cdn4-static-ovimg-3 Old-school stop-motion animation and fast-paced satire are the hallmarks of this eclectic show created by Seth Green and Matt Senreich. Action figures find new life as players in frenetic sketch-comedy vignettes that skewer TV, movies, music, and celebrities.


Fun Fact: The mad scientist who never speaks is named Fritz Huhnmörder. “Huhnmörder” is German for “chicken murderer”.
5. Ted
cdn4-static-ovimg-4 Ted is a 2012 American comedy film. It’s also MacFarlane’s feature-length directorial debut. The film stars Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, and MacFarlane. The film tells the story of John Bennett, a Boston native whose childhood wish brings his teddy bear friend Ted to life, but Ted keeps John and his love interest Lori Collins from moving on with their lives.


Fun Fact: When this film came out in 2012, it was the highest-grossing R-rated movie of the year and the highest-grossing original R-rated comedy of all time.

The Walking Dead Season 7 Premiere

File:Walking Dead S7 Poster.jpg


The season premiere of The Walking Dead was so violent that it created a social media meltdown. Social media websites everywhere were flooded with very sad and distraught fans. These fans weren’t necessarily upset about the violent images, because honestly what’s The Walking Dead without violence? Fans were upset about who the violence affected and questioned why the entire episode was filled with it. The amount of violence crammed into one episode caught the attention of Parents Television Council and they called the episode “one of the most graphically violent shows we’ve ever seen on television.”

This is a fair warning that the rest of this article contains spoilers! In The Season 7 season premiere Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and his best pal Lucille (Negan’s weapon of choice) created quite a ruckus. Negan killed Abraham (Michael Cudlitz) and Glenn (Steven Yeun), and some may say that their deaths were bound to happen, but not so soon into the new season. Abraham was very hopeful for a better future and that change would come in Season 7. As he spent most of Season 6 discussing his plans for the future, but fans know that this is a sure sign that death was near for him. For instance other characters such as Noah were killed because of too much talk about the future. Next, Glenn, The Walking Dead’s OG was brutally killed partially because Daryl (Norman Reedus) punched Negan and increased his rage. As Negan sought revenge, Glenn fell victim to Negan’s rage. Glenn’s last words stung as blood dripped from his head and he vowed he would find his wife Maggie (Lauren Cohan). Following the devastations, The Walking Dead doesn’t allow for other characters to react to their deaths, it wasn’t until a brief pause from violence that Maggie, Sasha (Sonequa Martin) and Rosita (Christian Serratos) got to mourn the deaths of Abraham and Glenn.

The suburban setting is meant to be safe and free of the fast pace and crime of the city, but Carpenter uses this setting to corporate vulnerable and naive characters who believe no harm will come their way.

Ben Affleck’s The Accountant Dominates Weekend Box Office


Before The Accountant’s big screen debut, it was predicted that the film would only bring in $16 million over the opening weekend box office. Considering that the film stars Ben Affleck and an A-list cast, the prediction was a hard pill to swallow. The low prediction was made from the basis that there was not a lot of talk about the film, and early mixed reviews from film critics.  The thing about predictions is that they are just that, and sometimes they prove to be faulty.
