Tanner Reviews The Cleveland Show

220px-TheClevelandShowPromoWhen you look up the term cash in in the dictionary, this will be one of the first pictures that you will see. Now I’m not saying that I dislike everything Seth MacFarlane does, far from it. I do enjoy Family Guy every now and again and some of his other stuff has been decent. I can certainly muster up more dislike for other people in Hollywood then for Seth MacFarlane. But man, when you talk about a guy who is milking every last drop out of the animation cash cow that is Family Guy a lot of that stuff is damn near unwatchable. American Dad I can barely stand but I can see the appeal while today’s subject, The Cleveland Show stands a testament to poor comedy and lazy concepts. The direct spin off of Family Guy has left us with very little but an anthropomorphic bear and a handful of slightly tasteless racist humor.

I do not care a lot for his comedy. I thought Ted was an okay movie and I thought Family Guy was at least a watchable show for a little while. At least it could work as background noise while I was working on other more projects. But man combined with everything else that this man has done and his humor he is usually one that avoid at all costs. With that being said, when I heard of A Million Ways to Die in the West I thought I would give it a watch. In my mind, the worst that it could be was a spaghetti western version of Ted. Nothing great, but nothing that I would find annoying or distasteful… But man was I wrong. A Million Ways to Die in the West may be the worst thing to come along to the western genre since Michael Cimino killed it some thirty-four years ago.
