Is it just me, or does 'The Cleveland Show' seem like the worst possible idea for a Family Guy spin-off? The character is just so dull and dreery, and takes, like, 15 minutes to get out a sentance, not that i'd be listening to the sentance because of the pain-stakingly dull tone of his voice. It just seems like they could've made a much better spin off idea other than 'The Life and Times of Boring Ol' Cleveland'.
I'd rather watch a show about the life of Quagmire, for sure, who I've always found to be such a weird and interesting character, not to mention a hilarious one. I'd even rather watch a spin-off about the life of Stewie or Meg or Chris and what they get up to at school. In fact, just about anyone in the Family Guy universe: Tom Tucker, Opie, Brian's Gay Cousin Jasper, Greased-Up Deaf Guy, Joe, Ollie the Blackie Weather Reporter, Death, etc, would make immensely better main characters for a spin off. Just not Cleveland!
So, I just found this promo picture of The Cleveland Show:
Do you notice the same thing I do? He has a daughter who's the eldest, a fat nerdy son who is the middle child, and a baby with a mishapen head... Does it remind you of anyone?:
I'm a big fan of Seth McFarlane, but he basically made the same show twice. It's the exact same show, only now the characters are black (no offense intended). What's the point in making a new show, even a spin-off, if you aren't going to mix it up a little bit? I also noticed something in The Cleveland Show poster. They have bears for neighbours. Bears... for neighbours? Are you kidding me? That's just desperate!
... your thoughts?
