Does info like this make you weep?misterprickly said:I'm sorry but am I only one who still wonders why Seth Mcfarlane isn't unemployed and living on welfare?
He has some how mastered the art of doing thing that others, who are far better than him, have already done and far better.
-as a disclaimer, I understand why people might hate him/his work, I just don't share that hatred-
Family Guy is more hit than miss with me so I tend to like his stuff. I really enjoy the emphasis on music he puts into the show.Family Guy first aired January 31, 1999. MacFarlane's work in animating Family Guy has been influenced by Jackie Gleason and Hanna-Barbera along with examples from The Simpsons and All in the Family. In addition to writing three episodes, "Death Has a Shadow", "Family Guy Viewer Mail 1" and "North by North Quahog", MacFarlane voices Family Guy's main characters - Peter Griffin, Stewie Griffin, Brian Griffin and Glenn Quagmire as well as Tom Tucker, his son Jake and additional characters. Bolstered by high DVD sales and established fan loyalty, Family Guy developed into a $1 billion franchise. On May 4, 2008, after approximately two and a half years of negotiations, MacFarlane reached a $100 million agreement with Fox to keep Family Guy and American Dad until 2012. The agreement makes him the world's highest paid television writer.
OT: I'm not a theatre kind of guy so I'll probably rent this once it's available.
