Out of all the characters from the TV show Family Guy, I probably relate to either Brian or Stewie the most, although I suppose the appeal of Family Guy is that you can relate, in some way or another, to many of the characters!

Why I Relate To Stewie

  • He's an evil genius. I'd like to be one of those.
  • He's sarcastic and cynical.
  • He's often restricted from doing what he wants because of his age - he can't communicate with anyone other than Brian the dog, because the rest of the family don't know he can talk. I guess I empathise with him on this one, because I often feel that I haven't got enough experience (which comes with age!) under my belt to achieve the things I want to!

Why I Relate To Brian

  • He's a writer
  • He likes a drink
  • He's usually grumpy about something (often his failure as a writer!)
  • He often works himself up into a melodramatic state of despair (although when I do this, I'm usually aware I'm being ridiculous!)

I can relate to Meg quite a bit, too - at least, I remember what it was like being her age and having no self-esteem, being an outcast at school and having that teenage angst where nothing seems fair!

So I'm gonna go with Glenn Quagmire.

He likes to party, enjoys wearing brightly colored shirts, and isn't afraid to laugh at himself.

He has a way with the ladies, and is an airline pilot (who wouldn't want to be one of those!)

Yes, he can be a little OTT, crass and even lewd, but he's got a softer side that comes out occasionally...

For example, I recently caught an episode where his sister comes to visit with her abusive boyfriend Jeff. Enraged, Glenn and his pals convince Jeff to go out on a hunting trip with them.

They attempt to murder him but, wary to their plans, Jeff turns a gun on them.

He ends up strangling Quagmire, releasing him only when he believes he's killed him.

However, due to his auto-asphyxiation fetish, Quagmire has adapted to being choked and managed to survive. He catches Jeff by surprise and runs him over with his car.

What a softie!
