    I think "Family Guy" comes much closer to crossing the line than "The Simpsons" does. When they make fun of things like AIDS, Cancer, and whatnot, then it's not funny...it's insulting. They need to get away from that and go back to what they were doing the first three seasons.

    I agree with previous posts that say the most recent seasons are not nearly as good as the first few.

    I agree that it sometimes comes close to crossing the line, but it's still hillarious. I'm sorry but you just can't beat a smart baby with an English accent and a friend who's a talking dog. Which sounds so dumb but so rocks!

    I agree. Family Guy is a copy of the Simpsons but at least on the Simpsons they don't make fun of good wholesome, funny tv shows like Gilmore Girls. They also don't feel the need to use terrible language and have characters with no clothes on a regular basis. Fox should dump that show before they get labeled as a bad television station. They really need the viewers so they should be more careful.


    that gilmore girls bit was pretty funny

    Family Guy is friggin' awesome! Not so much this current season though

    It is a copy of The Simpsons but it is the post watershed version so allows it to push at the boundaries which the simpsons wouldn't touch with a barge pole - making it that much funnier.

    My friend keeps trying to get me in to Family Guy and I have found some bits funny, but not enough to get me to watch it religiously.  He showed me the first few seasons that I didn't like that much and then he showed me some latest episodes because he said the latest seasons are better, by the looks of it, not everyone here agrees 

    I don't think Family Guy is bad.  I can easily sit and watch an episode and laugh a few times, just not enough to justify me loving it as much as I do The Simpsons.  My vote goes to say that Family Guy is good!

    What are you guys talking about, Family Guy ROCKS!!
    Here's my favorite part from the episode I just watched!
    Peter got drunk and smashed Lois with a table!
    Instead of getting mad, it reminded Lois of a time she watched a TV show and a guy got hit with a table.
    Then Stewie acted really gay and smacked the dog around. The dog retorts by asking for a martini. This is funny because he is an animal.
    After that, Lois' father walks into the house. He trips on an electrical cord and snaps his neck. Peter stares at him for a solid thirty seconds and then punched Lois in the face. It's comical, though, because he hits her at twice the normal speed.
    "What the DUECE?" Says Stewie.
    The whole family laughs.
    Chris poopshoots his pants.
    The whole family laughs.
    The Homer says "Donuts" and starts drooling. This upsets Marge because she is married to an idiot. Bart breaks a window and moons the principal!
    The End.

    Family guy is horrible lately (by which i mean everything after the third season). Look at it this way: Family Guy is fart jokes and little gags to take up time. Most recently, the at least five-minute chicken fight scene was rediculous.Maybe they could try to get the writing skill to fill an entire time slot. That, and the fact that the lower half of their key demographic doens't understand most of their ripoffs (I suppose the fans would call them "homages"). New Simpsons run laps around new Family Guys. Accept it.
