since that South Park episode, Family Guy has become more like The Simpsons? or at least more plot driven?
i mean, there's less cutaways, more out-there experimental episodes, more political episodes... there was even a sincerely played sweet moment in 'Tom Tucker The Man and His Dream'.... it feels like they actually took what SP said to heart, sort of.
i mean, obviously the show's still Family Guy, it hasn't changed that much. but there definitely has been some change in approach, it's almost like they're trying to make some of their episodes mean something. and i think it's kinda cool SP has had that impact (even though i still don't like the show, i mean, lottery fever and seahorse party whatever were fucking terrible)
thoughts on this? is there a difference in Family Guy pre-SP/post-SP? is it better? etc.
