I'm sick and tired of everyone seeing Family Guy as "the animated family show to watch". Does anyone not realize that Family Guy is just a feeble attempt to combine the dysfunctional family themed shoe The Simpsons, with an the already established, politically incorrect comedy South Park? I mean seriously, every Family Guy show is exactly the same. They stealing ideas from other reputable comedy's. The Griffins start their day in a normal everyday situation. Some unforeseen event causes them to go on an adventure or strike up some mischief, usually having peter make a poop and/or fart joke(insert annoying laugh afterwards). Brian then chimes in with satirical view of the main plot point. Stewie says something that involves lois, death, a celebrity that no one has heard of, all with a fake British accent. Someone insults Meg, she cries. Brian then chimes in again with a flashback that has nothing to do at all with the theme of the episode. Peter farts again. Stewies accent is used once more. Meg goes to her room, and Chris says something about a monkey.. I hate family guy with a passion. After watching The Simpsons for so long, every Family Guy episode is like a chopped up, shit smeared episode iv'e already see before. If anyone grew up watching the Simpsons or spent any time at all with South Park, I would expect them to catch-on to whatever it is Family Guy is putting on the airwaves now. I don't see how anyone can actually find episodes funny when they are all based on the same elements. Look at the Simpsons, most of the jokes are intelligent and clever. They have celebrities like Weird Al, The Rolling Stones, Micheal Jackson, Barbra Streisand, and a hundred(ya the names are in the hundreds) more people on their show, because its reputable. Fox knows that Family Guy is just a dumbed down version of the Simpsons that was turned into the average American piece of shit that floods our channels. Theres a reason why the Simpsons has been going on for SEVENTEEN years and Family Guy was canceled twice, DUH tv shows gain popularity after they become canceled, in fact thats a common way to get free publicity, by purposely canceling and resurrecting a tv show. The characters and family members are even the same. They both have 3 children, one dog, and a grandfather that come into play every few episodes. The creator of ren and stimpy, another landmark cartoon show, said this "If you're a kid wanting to be a cartoonist today, and you're looking at Family Guy, you don't have to aim very high... The standards are extremely low." If you want to see proof of this check my signature. All the Simpsons episodes were created before Family Guy and clearly show that Family Guy is riding on the coat tales of a successful comedy and is a perfect example of getting buy on other people's creativity and success. I am boycotting Family Guy and will stay true to the Real comic genius of The Simpsons, whether im sober, or high as a kite.
