So has Seth totally scrapped the Stewie is bi curious jokes? Because I don't recall any homo jokes in the "new" family guy series.

The latest episode had a kiss between Brian and Stewie. That's pretty gay.

Yeah I saw that one too. I don't know how they get away with it.

I just saw an advert for the Family Guy season 4 and American Dad season 1 both on DVD on Monday. I got going to get them when I get paid

Season 4 did have some good episodes, yes - but it completely fell apart after Breaking Out is Hard to Do (the only good episode after that is PTV) when the storlyines stopped making any sense whatsoever, all the jokes started going on for waaay too long, and the show stopped being funny. If I got bored watching them on tv, why would I want to own it on DVD?

I don't really know what episodes were in what season, but I know season 4 is my least favorite season. Are we on season 5 yet?

I think of the quality of season 5 of The Simpsons, then I think of the quality of this season of Family Guy. It just makes me sad. I love every episode of The Simpsons in the 5 season. Even my least favorite episode has more (funny) jokes in the first 5 minutes than the entire season of Family Guy.

The South Park episode was right on the money. I wonder if Family guy will retaliate.

Depends. Some list Season 5 as starting with Peter's Got Woods - however, if you look at the production codes, everyone's STILL on Season 4, so I'm just considering it all to be one season for now.

The head manatee Seth Macfarlane commented on it in a recent interview, saying something along the lines of "I'd be a hypocrite to get upset about it - South Park shits on everyone, like us." Maybe comparing South Park to Family Guy was his revenge?   roll eyes

But, think about it. How do they expect to hit back? If they do an entire episode mocking South Park, it'll just seem really childish, and given how long it takes to make an episode of Family Guy, it'd be very dated by the time it aired. And if they slip in a random cutaway mocking South Park, then that'll just be proving the exact point that Cartoon Wars was making. Family Guy can't win! Hahahaha!

Yeah apparently in the interview he showed an unfinished clip of an episode to air next year. So I doubt they'd do anything and also take into consideration that sp takes like a week to make an episode. I think south park could be made by manatees sometimes.

Hmm, I think it's kind of rude for South Park to step in during the middle of a Simpson/Family Guy war. Like Beamer stated, South Park has the advantage of time, since they can make an episode in a matter of days.

I remember when Sadam was caught, around 4 days later there was an episode with him in a spiderhole. Plus the whole Chef thing earlier this season. Someone said, the computer they use to make the episodes, is like building a sandcastle with a bulldozer, they have a lot of power for a cartoon that still looks like it's made with cardboard cutouts, purposly I know.

Maybe South Park was just making a comment and it'll be left at that. However, them dragging The Simpsons in (Bart Simpson in the episode too) tells me that may not be the case.

I saw some episodes from the new DVD and I was laughing all the time. I like the episode where peter goes blind and it was great to see him fighting the chicken again in a very long scene. I didn’t like the bit where Peter almost molested Chris.

I really liked the south park cartoon wars because it points out how they have these very random jokes, that are very un-funny and they use the same jokes all the time

I'm very dissappointed in myself for seeing the movie. it was horrible

No one asked you. But that seems to be the majority vote here.

I liked the scene where Meg was deaf, blind, and had no arms or legs. Just because it was so random, and it reminded me of the Metallica video for "One".

I also liked the chicken fight, and Peter telling Bonnie, "You've been pregnant for like 6 years now, either have the kid or don't, but...." I think that's the part where he was attacked.

I think every cartoon has it's own style, random flashbacks that make no sense is Family Guy's style. It's been apart of the show since the very beginning. Sure there are more of them now, but so what. You're still going to watch the show every week.

No, watch the first episode again. There were just as many, if not more flashbacks when it started - the difference now is, instead of being quick, 5-second "here's the set-up, followed immiedately by the punchline" gags, it's now overly drawn-out 1-minute "here's the setup, now let's cut to something and force you to sit through it for ages, waiting for the punchline only to discover there is none." Granted, I wouldn't mind it if it was only once every few episodes, but when you're getting several of these in one episodes, that's just fucking lazy. It's a shame Seth Macfarlane missed that plane.

What the fuck are you talking about? There's no exclusive Simpson/Family Guy war - The Simpsons writers have been taking occassional shots at Family Guy in the show and on the audio commentaries, and that's about it. Read the "criticisms" entry on Family Guy's Wikipedia page. A LOT more people hate Family Guy, and have said much worse things about it. Matt Stone and Trey Parker said YEARS AGO that it was "a real kick in the balls" when people would tell them the two funniest shows were South Park and Family Guy. They're not just randomly stepping in now.

Unlike The Simpsons, which just accuses Family Guy (and every other animated show) of ripping them off, South Park had a good point to make about the way Family Guy is written, and why they hate it. The scene when Cartman is saying "Don't you EVER compare me to Family Guy" is essentially supposed to represent Matt and Trey telling the viewers never to do that with South Park. Firstly, that was not Bart in it. It's his legally distinct South Park counterpart - and it's not fucking Bart! It's just a Bart-like kid. He's far too dark an interpretation to be Bart Simpson. South Park was just bringing him into it as Bart represented The Simpsons, and they also hate Family Guy. Granted, it would've been funnier as just a one-off visual gag, but then again, that would've gone against what they were saying about Family Guy.

The episode was called Cartoon Wars - not Family Guy Wars. Matt and Trey slipped in opinions on everything. We know they like The Simpsons (at least the old episodes, anyway), we know they hate Family Guy, we don't know what they think about King of the Hill, but we DO know they're friends with Mike Judge, hence the King of the Hill references in the background when Cartman and Kyle were fighting on the Fox studios. There is no "war" between The Simpsons and Family Guy, just a lot of shots from The Simpsons' writers (though Matt Groening and Seth Macfarlane do get along, apparentally), many more people have said many worse things about Family Guy, and South Park's points were valid and had a reason to be said. South Park had every right to step in and make that episode.

To Beamer: I'm not going to argue this with you, because I know I'm not going to change your opinion. I like this show, and obviously a lot of other people do too, or else it wouldn't have made such a huge comeback.

I liked the show too. If you'd had asked me two years ago if I wanted to see it come back, I'd have said "hell yeah!" Had I known the episodes would be this poor in quality, I would've rather it stayed dead with dignity. And my arguments were regarding your comments on South Park stepping into a "Simpsons/Family Guy" war, not on the quality of FG itself. I've made the latter point several times in this thread.

I think everyone wanted it back 2 years ago. Some might deny it now. I just hope the same thing doesn't happen to Futurama. Although I believe Futurama is a decent show that has many ideas in it without being repetitive.

Family Guy got fat and lazy during its time off. Contrast the early episodes where cutaways were quick and witty, and sometimes all they did was reference something. Now they come longer, more often and most importantly, less funny. The episode where Stewie flew to L.A. to bop Will Ferrell in the head for his Bewitched joke ("Guess what? I'm a witch!" Guess what? I'm a Clippers fan!" ) took, by my count, 1:03 out of a 22-minute episode to execute. And what was the payoff? Stewie bopping him in the head and saying "not funny!" Prophetic words, Stew. The Clippers joke that started this abortion of the funny bone was better than the protracted response. That's my jump the shark moment for these guys.

Yeah, I recently saw Bewitch, not bad. Better than I thought it was going to be.
And that joke was funny for about 20 seconds of the 1:03. After that I wanted to fast forward. But couldn't.  frown

This thread doesn't seem to be all that active I've actually found the latest episodes Petergeist and untitled fg history to feel like classic episodes. Who knows although fg has it's cutaway problems the show could be picking up. I was laughing my ass of at Petergeist their were gags per minute and I especially enjoyed the muppet show joke.

Petergeist- 4.5/5
Untitled fg history- 3.5/5 (only because although I enjoyed the episode it had a lot of problems with meg jokes and other cheap cutaways)

I found the last couple of Episodes to be much more enjoyable than many this past season. I would rate both episodes highly compared to some which seemed to be all irrelevant content.

I liked the Meg jokes. Especially where one robber holds up a sign that says, "I have your son."

I missed "Petergeist". But I'm sure they'll replay it.

Any thoughts on the so-called season finale being the movie they released last year?

The problem with the Meg jokes are there's way too many of them and they've VERY not subtle. In the early episodes, they'd maybe make one comment about Meg being plain or needing to be laid or whatever. Now it's "OMG MEG IS T EH SUCK SHE SHOULD DIE!!!!!!!!!11!~~~!1!", over and over again. Okay fine, you hate her. WE GET THE POINT.

That said, whatever the May 14 episode was appeared better edited and written. I wonder: in the [as] teaser for that episode, we saw Peter calling his servant over to wipe his boob sweat for something like 25 seconds. In the episode itself, it lasted maybe three. I found that a touch odd; maybe they edited it out to run in the 22-minute hole, or maybe (maybe?) Seth and company are paying attention to the critics and aggrivated fans and pulling away from the so-repetitious-it-makes-it-funny line of jokery.

I would actually prefer crap family guy than no family guy at all since the new season can still have it's moments sometimes. But I think if Futurama were to return it'd still be great because it's a show that doesn't rely on comedy and lame cutaways. It is about well developed plots, crazy situations, whacky hilarious sci fi term and random but fantastic jokes.
