I wouldn’t want to call myself the biggest Seth MacFarlane/ Family Guy fan in the world. I think way to highly of myself to put myself in that category, but if I am being honest, I suppose I am up there.  I have seen every episode of Family Guy, many if not all, a couple of times.  I loved Ted, thought it was perfect.  I was of the small population that loved his performance during the Academy Awards a couple years back.  I defended the “I Saw Your Boobs” song, justifying it as satirical material and criticized anyone who was offended by it as way too sensitive.  Although I have only watched American Dad, and The Cleveland Show sporadically, I admittedly own Seth MacFarlane’s “standards” music album.

What can I say other than you are getting what you expect with “A Million Ways to Die in the West” I liked it a lot in the theater, and the more I have thought about it after I left, the more I look back, laugh, and like it more.  I am looking forward to a 2nd screening after it’s out on Blu-ray. For now that is all I have to say. Perhaps I will have more helpful and or constructive comments about it after I watch its encore performance.

Medium Popcorn with Butter.
