Preview – Family Guy

Peter Griffin - Family Guy

Congratulations to ITV2 for the perfect timing of this episode of the brilliant animated comedy series from way, way back in 2007 – a time when the nationalistic and anti-Mexican rantings of the now 45th president of the US would have been considered a laughable fantasy.

Odious, big mouthed patriarch Peter Griffin starts an anti-immigration group but has to quickly backtrack when he discovers that he was born in Mexico. Unable to prove his citizenship, pass the naturalisation test or convince investigators that his marriage to Lois is for real, he ends up working for Carter as a landscaper, all the while fighting for immigration rights.

That’s right folks we’re gonna build a great, great wall …

Family Guy – Tuesday 10.50pm on ITV2.
