family guy is on comedy central now?
you tink dats baad? remember the time i almost boarded that flight to los angeles etc etc
Two eyes, two ears, a chin, a mouth, ten fingers, two nipples, a butt, two kneecaps, a penis. I've just described to you the Loch Ness Monster. And the reward for its capture? All the riches in Scotland. So I have one question: why are you here?
There are slight hints of characterization if you look past the awfulness in your words.
The Falcon and the D'ohman (4.5/10) Bart Stops to Smell the Roosevelts (4.0/10) Treehouse of Horror XXII (1.0/10) Replacable You (3.5/10) The Food Wife (4.0/10) The Book Job (8.0/10) The Man in the Blue Flannel Pants (4.0/10) The Ten-Per-Cent Solution (4.5/10) Holidays of Future Passed (8.5/10) Politically Inept, With Homer Simpson (3.5/10) The D'oh-cial Network (2.5/10) Moe Goes From Rags to Riches (1.5/10) The Daughter Also Rises (5.0/10) At Long Last Leave (2.5/10) Exit Through the Kwik-E-Mart (1.0/10) How I Wet Your Mother (4.0/10) Them, Robot (3.0/10) Beware My Cheating Bart (5.0/10) A Totally Fun Thing That Bart Will Never Do Again (3.0/10) The Spy Who Learned Me (3.5/10) Ned 'N' Edna's Blend (5.5/10) Lisa Goes Gaga (1.0/10)
does it actually count now as an accomplishment to be better than the Simpsons though?
Besides the fact I have been grossed out and enraged at least three times this season, Family Guy has also been performing better in my book. I suppose the fact that it can get strong emotion out of me at all compared to The Simpsons doing little to nothing is remarkable in itself. Sticking to the same formats and "innocence" over the course of 15 years just doesn't help a show progress.
"There's a couple of things they don't teach you in Harvard Business School. One is how to cope with defeat; the other is how to handle a shotgun. I'm going to do both right now."
I'm not a fan of Family Guy
I meant the discussion in general is out of date, like something you would have seen on the internet after the first season of Family Guy's revival.
Though season 9 of family guy and maybe the tail end of season 8 has been a real change of pace. I watched The Simpsons for the first time in a while recently and I remember it being ok, but right now I honestly can't remember off the top of my head what it was about.
Robot Chicken may not be genius, but it's a lot funnier than Family Guy. Even if Family Guy was a sketch show, it still wouldn't be funny, except for maybe once or twice an episode (for proof see: Seth Macfarlane's Cavalcade of Comedy.)

This is somewhat off topic.
Family guy has had a few recent episodes where they've tried to portray their characters as "real'. There's one episode in particular where they've done this. I may have it a bit wrong, but brian is trying to get quagmire to like him. Quagmire keeps pushing him away, but brian doesn't stop. Quagmire eventually tells him why he didn't like him, and I thought his explanation was really stupid. I don't remember exactly what all he said, but most of them didn't even make sense. I think there was one line about how he poops on the lawn even though peter takes care of him. Isn't he the family dog? I guess some times he's not, though. Sometimes he drives his own car.He's more of a prop than a character. Most of fg's characters seem to be that way. It's annoying when they try to have "real" moments with these characters. They usually come out of nowhere and make no sense. At least the simpson's writers don't try to make real moments with the crazy cat lady or the bumble bee man. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
"I'll die before I surrender,Tim."
It's a cartoon.
^Yeah, while that scene in particular is not a favorite of mine, I liked that they actually gave some real moments to Quagmire, who was by far the most "one note" of the main characters.
Quagmire's extended rant against Brian was somewhat unusual for Quagmire, since he's not the one you'd expect to take people so seriously. It was a huge relief to finally hear someone take Brian to task for his liberalism/atheism, both of which have chipped away at who was once the smartest character on the show.
Well the quagmire rant I think announced the show the show being becoming somewhat more reasonage after a string of bad seasons and Quagmire if you take all the insane/criminal stuff he did overtime just for the sake of a joke would come up has reasonable enough to be allowed some room (still think they could have made an interesting spin-off with him)
(amusingly in Quebec Family Guy first 3 seasons were shown in their france-made dubbing but skipped all the way to season 8 before showing new one with a Quebec made dub, so weirdly enough no one who bases themselves on just what teletoon show would get why Quagmire would rant like this)
Still while commendable for improving itself, I think Family Guy bipolar in its approach to really convey the emotion it seem to train to give its viewers because its simply unable to make something like a build up
