  • The earlier episodes suck. There, I said it.

    Am I the only one that doesn't like the earlier episodes? The animation's really ugly, the lines are thick and inconsistent and the pauses are static-y. And the jokes just aren't funny, not even the usually-enjoyable cutaways. The story was barely there, either; fatman loses job, nothing interesting there. I will give them credit for the Stewie bits, though... if only we could transplant old Stewie into new episodes, then we'd have a winning combination. But still, milder Stewie aside, I'll take the newer, post-uncancellation episodes any day... even though I've already seen them a hundred times already. Tee hee...
