    Bordertown


    FOX has picked up BORDERTOWN, a new animated comedy about two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S.-Mexico border, it was announced by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.

    From Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy), BORDERTOWN will take a satirical look at the cultural shifts occurring throughout America. Set in a fictitious desert town near the Mexico border, the series centers on the intertwining daily lives of two neighbors: BUD BUCKWALD and ERNESTO GONZALES. Married and a father of three, Bud is a Border Patrol agent who feels threatened by the cultural changes that have transformed his neighborhood. Living next door to Bud is Ernesto, an industrious Mexican immigrant and father of four, who is proud to be making it in America. As Bud and Ernesto’s paths begin to cross, their families become bound by friendship, romance and conflict.


    Ugh, we needed another Seth show: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/201...-order/214421/ In positive light, if any can be given, this actually sounds like a good premise, but it can easily go bad.

    2 families this time eh? Really pushing the envelope Seth.

    Well, Dan Vebber is a co-executive producer, and the premise sounds somewhat original, but it also looks like it could easily be really awful, especially if they end up doing a lot of Mexican jokes and do the same cartoony/generic/stupid problems Cleveland Show and Modern Family Guy have. Will wait and see.
    Just because I'm stupider than them, they think they're smarter than me!

    What the fuck? Did they design this show using GoAnimate?

    I swear, Seth must be holding a nervous Bob's animator hostage or something.

    So this time, we get 2 crazy babies and a dog version of Rallo? And all of this in the same animation style as Crash Canyon?!

    ...oh this is going to be fun.

    Dude....
    There is a chance that The Simpsons might not be on for the 2014-2015 season. So Fox Sundays will just be the "Seth McFarlene Power Hour with Bob"

  12. #11


    No, The Simpsons got renewed for season 26. Chances are, it's Family Guy that might die soon.

    The animation looks like shit even from the promotional image. Those character designs are really unappealing.

    Also does that one kid's shirt say "Git a boner"?

    I don't have high hopes for this.

    Yeah, those designs look really cheaply put together. Also, what ever happened to that show Seth was going to do with a female as the main character?

    This show looks like it was animated on MS Paint. The characters have a similar flatness and lazy "lets rip off seth macfarlane's style and make it look 10x worse" attitude the Crash Canyon and Brickleberry have.

    That turned out to be an April Fool's joke.

    I know, right? I mean, how silly of us to think that a WOMAN could be a main character.

    I'm pretty sure that was all talk, no pitch or anything outside of a talk.

    Alex Borstein: Seth, I know that today is stressful for you, but I'd like it if I got to do a new voice role.
    Seth: You said that back when I got rid of Loretta Brown.
    Alex: Yes, but I want something exciting. Lois is getting old for me and I want a new female lead. I know, what about I voice an attractive mom?
    Seth: I like where you're going with this!
    Alex: And this hot mom actually runs the family!
    Seth: *cheering, soon halting to his surprise* Yay... wait what?!
    Alex: Yeah, and she's a single mom, they have a talking pet...
    Seth: Woah woah woah, hold up. Where's the dad?
    Alex: What dad?
    Seth: No, where is he? We can't run a show without a dad.
    Alex: Do we really need the dad? Please. I need to get going for the voice studio, director's being a real hardass today. But pitch the idea Seth. Thanks!
    Seth: Yes... I will be pitching that.
    *Alex leaves and Seth continues to take a forget-me-now.

    The show would have probably been all menstration and boob jokes anyway. Good riddance.

    That's good tv right there

    I would almost rather see a show where the protagonists are the evil Fox crew and Seth is the antagonist. Every episode he invades the offices with a shitty idea.

    Nor would I. Seth MacFarlane shows are capable of making people despise women as is with awful characters like Donna and Lois. Could you imagine how much of a cunt the main character of a hypothetical female lead show would be?

    I can picture the Halloween special already. It begins with the main character on a date similar to the beginning of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video. She starts doing the whole bit where Michael turns into a werewolf but instead of transforming, she just unleashes an ungodly amount of period blood which spells out the main titles.

    And I bitched about FG's animation looking lazy....that's a masterpiece compared to this! This doesn't look any more professional than a junior high art class assignment. (No offense to any middle school artists in here.) I also have no interest in watching this. It's going to be nothing but racial and ethnic slurs. This will be an animated version of Dads, just with a different premise that allows for all of the jokes to poke fun at minorities. But it will get multiple seasons simply because MacFarlane's name is on it. I can't believe they cancelled AD, but picked this up. I know I'm judging it before it airs, but I don't see it holding a candle to any of the other shows in the Animation Domination line up.

    This sounds like a show that has the potential to make a nice but obvious point about how Mexicans are people too and just like normal American families by not drawing attention to the fact that they are Mexican, but if it's anything like Family Guy, it's probably going to be very obvious in trying to make some far less subtle point about immigration by constantly drawing attention to the fact that they are Mexican. And if the animation is any indication, this series wasn't thought out very well, and is probably just some way to milk Seth MacFarlane's name out of as much money as possible until his name becomes a punchline to people who still think Family Guy is a good show.

    I feel like I should point out one thing.

    Seth basically has stopped working on Family Guy like around season 7 or 8 right? Around when the show got REALLY bad.
    And Seth never really did anything for The Cleveland Show.
    And American Dad is basically done by Mike and what his face
    So maybe if Seth actually works on this show himself very closely maybe just maybe it will actually be good like old family guy.

    Just a thought.
