So its a Peter and Brian Griffon episode of family guy, only hes not fat and Brians a teddy bear and its live action.

Theres some fresh ideas here. I bet half way through a giant chicken walks in and fights Peter Walburg for 20 minutes. Only its a pig instead of a chicken to keep with the farm yard animal theme.

I smell a hit

Can't deny I loffed. Especially since Peter Griffin's voice is coming out of a stuffed bear. (MacFarlane didn't reach too far for that fucking voice there, did he?)

My wife brought up a point... with the exception of the fact that everybody seems to know Ted's a stuffed bear who's alive, it's sort of like Wilfred.

I was going to say that but then I realized hes actually Brian Griffon. A normally nonvocal creature who talks but everyone treats him like a normal person which appears to be the case with the bear. Wilfred can only be heard by one person and thats cause hes a depressed wacko.

I saw the commercial last night and I definitely laughed a couple of times. I'll go check it out.

So is the bear like Stewie, where at times people can hear him and at times they can't? Or like Wilfred...?
Either way, it's Mark Walhberg talking to animal(s), which is always good.

The last scene of the trailer was pretty funny. I might watch it.

Here’s the adults-only, audio NSFW version of the toned-down green band trailer for Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane’s feature debut Ted, which aired tonight during the boundary-pushing animated TV series. Mark Wahlberg plays a grown man who meets the woman of his dreams (Mila Kunis) but has to contend with his teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish. The Universal release is slated to open July 13.

Macfarlane really needs to stop already. The talking animals thing has worn thin. Family guy is funny but enough already. We know we know - you think a talking animal is funny we know....

not seeing this

This is just like that last few seasons of Married...With Children, that was proceeded by its own ripoff, Unhappily Ever After, that Family Guy cloned and then spun off the exact fucking thing with American Dad.

Christ, could the sad sack guy talking to a toy or animal thing be any more played out?

The voice for the teddy bear is 80 percent Brian, 20 percent Peter. The lead character even has a Massachusetts accent!

The lazy bastard isn't even trying, is he?

You mean Mark Wahlberg?
I agree him with a Boston accent seems really disingenuous.






And I'll always throw in, American Dad>Family Guy.

Instead of voicing cartoon characters he should try a straight comedic role.
he has a voice but it doesn't mean he can act , I'm sure he has tried but it just hasn't worked out

when you have a primetime show on Fox I don't think it matters

He's done a lot of performance presentations, like "McFarlane and Friends" for one, Singing on Stage at various venues and stage shows. He seems comfortable on stage and seems to like performing. He's not hurting for money so it stands to reason that he doesn't have to do this kind of stuff. I think he's just stuck on this anthropomorphic schtick.
