Posted on February 27th, 2019 by admin@dcfilmgirl

As talented as Seth MacFarlane (2014’s A Million Way to Die in the West) is on Family Guy and as fun and joyful as he is on Graham Norton’s interviews (if you haven’t watched those you really should), it’s a shame his storyline in Ted 2, the sequel to the hilarious 2012 comedy Ted, is […]
