Sundays With Seth
Things were lonely on Seth MacFarlane watch this week, with only ‘Cleveland’ turning in a new episode. I guess Cleveland was missing his friends from Quahog as well because the episode featured far more cutaways than its usual average.
‘Cleveland’ is usually a show that relies heavily on its plots and stories, and yet in this installment the cutaways offered perhaps the biggest laughs.
Maybe the writers had an inkling that this story, while well told and emotionally well balanced, was lacking in the yucks department so they fell back on the old tried and true.
Considering the animators are apparently working in Cleveland’s basement — one of those random asides we got — I can only imagine under what conditions the writers were working in. Maybe that’s why they had a harder time bringing the funny.
