‘Dads’: Watch at Your Own Risk
Everyone likes to have a good laugh and they say laughing is the best medicine to have. So Tuesday nights will make your night a little bit brighter. Dads is a new show airing on FOX at 8 pm. It’s created by Seth MacFarlane. He is best known for his vulgar, racist remarks on the hit show Family Guy and his feature movie Ted. You must watch this show at your own discretion, but if you know Seth MacFarlane, you know what to expect.
Dads is about two video game designers, Eli and Warner, who have their dads come to live with them. It sounds simple, but it’s a lot more complicated than it seems. Warner, who is played by Ted star Giovanni Ribisi, often feels guilty because his dad lives with him and his wife. Warner’s dad Crawford, played by Martin Mull, who twentysomethings best know as the principal from Sabrina the Teenage Witch, already makes himself feel at home by making a mess in the kitchen and entering in only a towel.
