Family Guy   (1999)

Family Guy, USA (1999 - ?)

Eccentric and disturbed animated series. Huge amount of references to the cultural and social basis of US and the world in general, used in a various jokes. Politically incorrect and insulting most of the time, there is no sacred issue untouched. Sometimes exhausting to watch, but funny after all. Not for people that easily offended.
