A-Ha: Take On Family Guy
I’ll not beat around the bush and just say it straight, I am not a fan of Family Guy. I see it as a string of decent jokes pulled together with a usually loose narrative that on the whole ruins some truly great moments. I also hate the “just like the time…” joke mechanic that they over use.
Now there are some great scenes that make me laugh really hard. They are witty, well done, and reference great pop culture as the joke. Take A-Ha’s song, Take on Me. It was one of those videos that defined the 80’s when music videos were emerging and still to this day is innovative in its approach. If only Family Guy was like that more than just a few random scenes as show.
