My guess as to why the Bin Laden joke was removed is because it could be seen as mocking the events that occured on September 11th. I also do not agree with the decision to remove it, but it hasn't kept me from buying the set.
"Well broccoli, mother says you're good for me. I'm afraid I'm no good for you!" The Osama gag was pretty damn funny, they really should have left that alone. Disrespecting anything, hell. It's not like they said "HAHA!!! WE MOCK EVERYONE WHO DIED ON SEPT [email protected][email protected]%" Stewie's kung fu fight on the top of the oriental express is priceless.
my gueess as to why the bin laden joke was removed is due to seth macfarlane had a ticket on one of the planes that crashed into the world trade center. and during the interview at tvshowsondvd.com he pretty much admitted to having a hang-over the next morning and was not able to get up in time and missed the plane by about 10 minutes. so maybe it is just the smple reason the seth macfarlane is sensitive to the 911 situation and thats why it's not in the show anymore.
I don't think so, because he was quoted (after 9/11) as saying he originally fought to keep it in, then after fighting with the studio for awhile became indifferent and didn't really care if it was in or out.
TonyD, did you read the whole article? From tvshowsondvd.com:
i read the whole thing. i just thought i'd put it out there to see what anyone else thought.
My two favorite scenes. 1) Peter locking himself in a (soundproof/air-proof) glass box to avoid talking to Brian, and then farting. The look on his face, the easily lip-read "OH MY GOD!" followed by his frantic clawing at the box are etched in my brain. 2) (Paraphrased) Meg : If I don't learn how to drive a car I'll never go out on a date, and I'll end up adopting a kid like Rosie O'Donnell did. Peter : Are you implying that Rosie O'Donnell can't drive? On to serious stuff though.
It is done! I finally completed the entire Volume One boxed set. Now I find myself in a sort of funk. Practically every night over the past few weeks I have spent 21 minutes watching the funniest cartoon series I have ever seen. 28 shows and not one that didn't evoke a huge belly-laugh from this individual. Coincidently, the last episode I watched on this entire set was in my opinion the funniest of the whole set. The show was E Peterbus Unum where the Griffin home becomes its own independent country. I nearly pissed my pants watching Peter mock M.C. Hammer in Can't Touch Me. Last night I almost busted a gut watching the opening of The Story On Page One. It begins with a TV series about a girl and her friend that happens to be an Anus. You can refer to this show as immature moronic comedy, but anyone that has an offbeat sense of humor can't help but put these writers on pedestals for some of the things that they have thought of during the show's entire first two seasons (and I am sure the third as well). Watching Family Guy is like combining the Zucker Brothers with the Marx Brothers. There's so much humor thrown at you in the span of 21 minutes that there's always this expectation of "what's going to happen next?" I have had such a great time with these shows. You can label me as a FOX pusher, but this is a series that has pulled every funny bone in my body and I hope that its popularity is resurrected through home video to the point where Fox would reconsider putting this show back into production. Cannot wait till the day I receive Season Three in the mail.
Wow. One episode a night. My friends and I watched them all in three nights. Probably would have been two, but I had work one morning.
John, Two jobs (this forum being one of them) doesn't leave me that kind of extra time.
Jobs, DVD's, Personal Web sites to maintain, Web sites to visit, ReplayTV recording 15 hours of programming per day...Time? What's that? They need to invent a brand new month so I can catch up. To my boss: "I'll be taking the month of Junely off so I can catch up on all of my unwatched DVD's." p.s. Bonus points for the one who can identify the "Febtober" and "Smarch" references first.
I wanna go get the set now!
"Smarch" is from one of the Simpsons Halloween specials, I think maybe the one with Willie as Freddy?
Just remembered a couple more great moments from this show.... Sesame Street's Bert and Ernie waking up in bed together with Burt climbing out of bed and displaying his backside and ass.
Oh, and... Stewie attacking Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Total destruction - including a flaming "Meow Meow Kitty"
Ron, Just wanted to thank you for starting this thread. It got me to stop putting off buying this boxset, I was keen but was put off by the reviews of the video transfer... I am *so* glad I did...it arrived yesterday in the mail and I watched 4 episodes last night, plus the commentary on the first episode... Brilliant !!! I am looking forward to seeing all the episodes as I only caught a few when it screened on cable tv over here...bring on the next boxset !! I loved the scene you mentioned in the first spoiler in your previous post...I was trying to decide what scene to show the guys at work to give them an idea of the show (I think I'll be lending this boxset to lots of people !!) and as soon as I saw that scene I knew that was the one !! Stewart.
I second Stewart's feelings, I blind bought this set because of this thread (I'd never seen the show when it was on as I never heard any "buzz" over it, so I didn't feel the need to hunt down the air times). Now I'm already halfway into the third disc, watching my Simpsons Season 2 set has been put off, and I can't wait for Vol. 2 of Family Guy to come out. Great show!
