Since the creators weeks ago talked about differences you'd see now vs. say 2005, what are some differences you've noticed. I've noticed the current episodes are much more self-aware to the point of every line carrying some sort of *wink-wink* *nudge-nudge* to them. It started in "Saving Private Brian" with Stewie's "clip...no clip?" line, and has become more and more each season. Peter's character has toned town from season 5, when he was a complete Archie Bunker archtype. They have toned down on the cutaways, which is a good thing. Your observations?
