The Rant: Family Guy

Seriously, this show sucks. Randomness is not always funny. Constant randomness is not ever funny. I still can’t imagine how so many people watch this show and think it’s hilarious. Do they care that the jokes have all been told before? Or maybe they just don’t realize it. Even the “original” material isn’t funny. I mean, a 15 minute fight with a chicken? Could the writers not come up with any decent way to fill the rest of the show up that they needed to waste time by pulling off that crap? Seth Macfarlene is a fucking hack. Stealing his idea for Baby Stewie from artist Chris Ware and his Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth comic strip, getting sued by Carol Burnett, constant rips fromThe Simpsons and hatred from the great Kevin Smith would be enough for people to realize what a douche he is. When he came here to Montreal to do a live show for Just for Laughs, my friend joked about kidnapping him and beating him to death. There is one aspect of the show that made me laugh though. When the South Park creators ripped them in the two part Cartoon Wars. The manatee bit was great (and probably true).

    Hey, umm idk if you just feel the need to putradize something becasue you ddint think of it or if you are just some imbucile who doesnt understand what these people are trying to do. The are takin things that have been considered funny in teh past and giving it thier own spin which in turn creats some of the greatest comedy of our age. Polls and ratings decalaare family guy as one of the top rated shows of 2005, 2006 and 2007. Comedy is defined as somethign that creates a sense of hilarity and laughter. family Guy creats both and much more and it is not your place to say wther it is comical or not. Some of the most intelligent people on this planet are fans of shows liek the simpsona dn family guy. Bill Gates in fact quotes a family guy episode in his may 2007 blog post. You make a commetn on south park which is not unlike fammily guy in the way it uses the ideas or other creators to tell its story. it is hippocritical that you mention liking on bu not the other.

    If it’s not my place to say whether it’s comical or not then it’s not yours or however else’s either. Welcome to the wonderful world of opinions.
