After 12 years of shocking, edgy jokes about disabilities, violence and patching up holes in dikes, Family Guy Season 12 Episode 18 finally took the show to a place it has never gone before.
It addresd the question of race.
Ah, man, sorry, sorry - I could barely keep a straight face even typing that.
Of course, Family Guy has explored the issue of race about as regularly as you do your laundry, with varying degrees of success (also just like you doing your laundry).
And I certainly don't begrudge Family Guy for going back to the race well; it's part of the fabric of all of our lives, and thus also part of the fabric of our animated satirical comedies.
