If you watch Family Guy, feel free to discuss here!

In my opinion it can Sometimes be very funny.
I just wanna see what you guys think.

I liked the old Family Guy better.
The newer ones are pretty bad, just Hit-Miss.
Worst written series ever.

South Park hit it spot on with the manatees and their idea balls. The "jokes" aren't funny, they're interchangeable and have nothing to do with the often half developed (or less) plot, some of their attempts at humor make no sence at all ("like that one time peter went swimming with the cows" heh heh heh *gunshot*). And they don't seem to realize that their pop culture references will become obsolete, making any cheap laughter they may have gotten from a reference meaningless in a few months.

It also seems like the manatees think that random bursts of violence are just hilarious. No setup, no reason for the violence, just randomly smashing someone in the face with a chair. It seems they think its even better if they show violence towards women, animals, or just someone whose plain defenceless. Then there are the tasteless outbursts (I recall one episode where they said people in wheelchairs are monsters). Once again, no setup, no provocation, just tasteless, tactless, offensive shit.

Don't get me wrong, I can laugh my ass off at something incredibly offensive or violent, but the formula is Timing + Violence = Comedy. NOT Violence = Comedy.

Also, I don't dislike the show simply because of the cutaway gags. I'll compare it to Scrubs since both shows use cutaway humor. Scrubs is still funny because the jokes are relevant to whats going on, brought on by a comment or observation. These flashes don't consist of 5 minutes of fighting a chicken for the FIFTIETH FUCKING TIME, but are short, few, and far between. Another thing that sets Scrubs apart from Family Guy is that episodes of Scrubs actually have a plot. The manatees at Family Guy may attempt to scribble a plot, but without the use of their idea balls, whatever they have falls apart to some undeveloped thread of overall pointless events that serves as a break between cutaway jokes. Scrubs is also able to take a more serious tone and have dramatic, touching moments. Perhaps the best example of this in Scrubs is "My Lunch." The episode has a scene where three patients die of rabies contracted from an organ transplant. One of the patients is a good friend of Dr. Cox who feels guilty because he rushed the transplants due to the critical states of the patients. Dr. Cox goes into a self-destructive depression in his guilt ridden state... Maybe I'm going a bit off topic, but you get the point that cutaway humor can work. Family Guy just fails horribly at it.

I will agree, however, that the first three seasons (before the cancellation) were much better than the newer episodes. Those episodes didn't employ as many random jokes. The cutaway gags tended to be short and somewhat related to what was happening. That show should've never been revived.

The chicken fights weren't for no reason. That chicken gave Peter a bad coupon!

Also, Family Guy is probably the only show where a simple trip to the aquarium, could end with Peter doing Lois' mom

F-Mario X News:C3 Thread Ahead!
By the way, I gaved up hacking SMW. I think I'll come back, but not yet. ~ X-King
Thanks for the replies.

Last time I checked this thread there were no replies. It's good that I've finally got some. It's intresting to know what you guys think.

I agree Family guy is crazier nowadays, but meh, I still think it's funny, but that's just my sense of humour.

If anyone else visiting this thread has anything to say about Family Guy, go ahead and post.

Yes, and that was funny... ONE TIME. It was funny ONE TIME because the FIRST time they did a chicken fight it was original, and I'm not 100% on this, but I think it was set up, not just the fucking chicken attacks out of nowhere and the viewers watch like giggling monkeys. Also, the first fight was only like 2 minutes long... sure, thats pretty long for a cutaway joke, but its not like the third one which was over 5 minutes long... five fucking minutes of the same crap they did twice before.

Is that suppose to a good thing? Anyone could pick two random, completly unrelated things and bullshit a way to tie them together. It isn't clever and I have no clue why people find it funny. Its just stupid.

Another thing I hate is how that show tends create a pointless conversation and drag it out for longer than would ever be funny until one of the characters says/does something disgusting or violent.

Most of it is funny, but a few jokes go on for way too long. As Nameless said, like 2 minute chicken fights were funny for the first time. Second not so much. 5 minutes for the 3rd time is just too much. Also, the random times when Peter falls and goes like "aahhh *inhales" for like 10 minutes!

Family Guy's comedy is based on making fun real, and classical and then making a flashback about aquainting with them in some way or another which if you know what they are talking about its usaly funny.

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

It CAN be funny. Family Guy overuses it. The newer episodes tend to recycle the same jokes over and over, reference nonsence (again I point out swimming with the cows), and increasingly often, just use something tasteless or offensive to try to get some shock value.

I swear, one of these days I'm going to pick apart a Family Guy episode into how many minutes/seconds are spent with

-Actual Plot
-Plot Related Jokes
-Random, interchangeable, pointless crap

I'd be willing to bet that a newer episode would be atleast 50% interchangeable crap.

Family Guy is a show which implements jokes that could be set up by a child. It is terribly unfunny. Most jokes come in with no relevance to anything happening in the show and usually try to poorly parody pop culture, usually using an overused observation accompanied by exaggerated character design and no setup to jokes whatsoever.

I suppose if you like all of these things, its the show for you.
Ehh, it's alright.. I have nothing good or bad to say about it.

I think that Family Guy is really funny. I was getting bored with watching the Simpsons countless times, so I switched to Family Guy. I think it is hilarious.
Last year was the last time I have watched it, why? I have so many reasons it's hard to even forgive seth macfarlane or however you see his face

1. Making fun of EVERYTHING!

it doesn't even matter what you like, or dislike, they make fun of EVERYTHING just to see if they can get a laugh at of you, they made of so many things I can't count of it, but I do remember as much I can.

They made fun of Will Smith, there's no point, of whatever reason, to make fun, of the best african american actor I have ever watched, even for his hilarious rap songs he used to make,

Next they made fun of robin williams, I hear that some of you dislike and like him, well that's ok, I love watching his movies, RV made a good laugh out of me, Flubber never seen it but I heard it was a nice movie, and I also liked the movie where he was a robot and he was becoming more and more of a human, also I liked the movie where he was a doctor, and I liked jack where he was a 10 year old, but is an adult size, but in other words, making fun of him, just fails.

and also, it really breaks my balls so hard, that they made fun of doom in this one intro where stewie ride's his bike through a whole bunch of scenes, wrong sounds, just all this bull crap, it made feel like running up to Seth Macfarlane, ripping his cold heart out, and shove it up his candy butt, when I said candy butt, that's also another thing I'd like to point out about this.

Family Guy, rips off EVERYTHING! for one thing I bet alot of you may have seen this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QFQyib5ZQZY
Yes, it was pretty funny the first couple of times, but now it's just annoying, they didn't constantly use it, but it wasn't even funny, it was barely funny when you watch the original version with that one guy standing at the counter

Now don't take this wrong, but this fad, is HORRIBLY old, in one of the episodes where peter goes back to the past and dates louis again and brian is there with him, brian was at this stage, with an 80's band, and did the rick roll song, but seriously, rick roll is OLD! they shouldn't just take an old fad and try to revive it, it won't work.

but honestly, continue the opinions of how bad this is, it help's to quickly grab your remote and shut the tv off right when it come's on, also their idea's are HORRIBLY stale

if you read all that I thank you for it, and that clearly states my opinion about family guy, me? I watch the simpsons, maybe some of the older episodes but every once in a while some of the new episodes are actually pretty funny in my honest opinion.

--------------------
I'm back from the dead, and now I am more spergy than ever sadly.
I love family guy. It's hilarious. Well, sometimes. There's only a few episodes that werent funny. And there were only a few that made me laugh my ass off.

--------------------
<TLMB> I use YY-CHR to edit DNA
It seems today - that all we see, is violence and movies, and s** on TV...

Hehe, anyway, stop talking and watch this segment of Family Guy.

Herbert always make me feel happy, even though he's a 80 year old pedophile who stalks children.

Although, some of the jokes aren't really that funny, i still enjoy watching Stewie try to kill Louis. So obviously, i enjoyed the episode were he actually killed her in a dream.
Family Guy is the greatest. That clip of Herbert the Pervert was the funniest thing I've seen in a long time ;)
I like family guy but only sometimes. Cause now its just references placed reandomly in with the story.
