You May Now Kiss The...Uh...Guy Who Receives

Call me crazy, but I actually liked this episode. Okay, so gay marriage is hardly a cutting-edge issue anymore, but they actually handled it pretty well, even if it was as biased as all hell. Lots of dud jokes (the gay brownies, Stewie going through his grandparents' candy jar, Peter's catch phrases), but I actually laughed quite a few times here. LOVED the "burying my dog" joke, though. Nice to finally see an episode with a coherant storyline, moral dilemas and multiple storylines that were all relevant to eachother. There hasn't been an episode of this quality since PTV.

I have two questions, can someone please answer them.

Which FG episode featured the Back To The Future parody when Peter crashes in to the mall and says, "Wow, everyone in 1955 was on fire.  I never knew that."

In episode Peterotica, what was name of the artist and song during the Jude Law, Renée Zellweger trailer parody.  It's been a while since I heard that song and I forgot the name.

Great picture! Who is CPO?

I did not realise that BBC3 is starting to show Season 6. I watched the episode Meet The Quagmires. I fell in love with Brian at the end when he was singing "Never gonna give you up"

I going to get the Season 6 DVD when it comes out next month

It seems consistent with the crappy way they treat the character.

Ok, I haven't liked the new episodes very much, but I did laugh at Peter Heh heh hehing along to Axel F and the "Scare Jew." I'm actually looking forward to this Star Wars one too, but it'll be hard to top the Robot Chicken Star Wars episode.

If Meg gets pushed around by her family so much, why hasn't she asked her grandparents (Lois's parents) for help?

Dude totally loved the Star Wars Special.  Does this mean that they'll be parodying ESB and ROTJ in the future?

Probably not.  What it probably means is that they leave stealing other people's creations and bastardizing them.  smile

Meg won't ask for help because the writers like tormenting her too much.

I liked a few jokes during the episode, like the Danny Elfman one and the Death Star hole, but overall meh. Simpsons was better that night, and Robot Chicken did it better.

Is it sad that the funniest joke of the whole episode was at the end about the Robot Chicken Star Wars Special?

Of course not, because the RC one was much better.

Couch gag and Han shooting first were chuckle-worthy, though.

The old guy singing "Time Of My Life" was stupid. Waste of 5 minutes they could've used to make fun of something. If they were trying to do a random Family Guy thing, they took it too far, in my opinion.

I liked how in the end they made fun of themselves for admitting they steal stories from other shows, specifically, in this case, Robot Chicken. It was funny, but just supported that they aren't original. Yeah, FG does have some good things, and this episode had some good stuff, but, overall, meh. Every time they try something somebody else has done, they fail. Hard. Harder than I fail.

Wow... A Futurama reference, a Doctor Who reference, and an Airplane! reference in the same story.

My respect for this show has been raised by one teeny knotch.  smile

The funniest part about that bit is that the creator of Family Guy was essentially arguing with the creator of Robot Chicken about it, as Seth Green does Chris' voice.

"You're a jerk, dad!"

Funniest joke on FG in years.

Why hasn't Family Guy made fun of South Park?  It's been a year since Cartoon Wars and I was hoping that Family Guy would respond to South Park, since they've made fun of the Simpsons for a long time.

I watched it the other night. I'm generally not a fan of that style of humor - too much of that show boils down to "Hey, viewers! Remember this commercial from the 80s? Eh? Eh?" and when has that ever been funny? Though I admit I laughed at the gag about hyperspace looking like the Doctor Who theme.

The high points for me were the discussion about the design flaws in the Death Star, the John Williams/Danny Elfman bit, and the couch. The bit with Rush Limbaugh bitching about affirmative action was kind of funny, though I saw that one coming a mile away. The only unfunny joke I can remember getting stretched out forever was Obi Wan's song. Ha ha! It's funny because he kind of whistles when he talks! And he likes to touch kids! Oh, my sides.

All in all, it was kind of amusing and a bit better than I was expecting. Not a terrible way to kill 45 minutes if you're bored, at any rate. Still, I think it's been done better. I'm not giving this a numbered rating because those are lame.

Having never seen Star Wars, most of this episode is confusing to me. The pimped-up spaceship was very funny.

There's this fucked up deleted FG scene where there's a fake banner ad for the Simpsons on Fox and Marge walks out as part of the banner. Then Quaqmire jumps on top of her and tries to molest her, she runs off screen and he follows. A minute later they come back on having apparently done it and Marge comments on how it wasn't that bad. They go back to the Simpsons home where all you see is the house but you hear Marge and Quaqmire getting caught by Homer.

Then he shoots Homer, then Marge, then Bart, then Lisa, and then Maggie.

The most distasteful joke Family Guy has ever done.

I hate "Family Guy"...some jokes are maybe funny but in general it pisses me off.

- total Simpsons rip-off
- Where is the storyline?
- just one "joke" after the other
- most jokes are so full of references that a normal person can't understand 80%

I really hate it.

Hmmm i'm a bit bummed that new series only has 13 episodes. It's taken just over a week to watch all of them and the special features disc with my girlfriend.

Episodes were great but lacking frown

^ I hate when people say that. The Flintstones is set in prehistoric times, while Simpsons is modern. Plus, the Simpsons have 3 kids, 2 of which aren't babys. In the Flinstones, they just have one baby. I mean, it's similiar, no doubt, but it's not a rip off. I don't think the Simpsons steal jokes from The Flintstones like Family Guy takes jokes from The Simpsons.

All rants aside, how about that show The Honey mooners?  tongue

Ah, yes, the Honey Mooners. I think when it comes to those bits when its just Husband and Wife stuff, yes, they base most of it on that.
