Sunday 9:00 PM on FOXIn Season
|After 188 episodes, the show is just running out of material. That goes for almost any show, too. When you do a show like this, there's only so many scenarios & general pop culture references you can make.|
8. How the show has an episode with just 2 characters in it and features only them.
Also how that episode featured the two most prominent characters on the show - Stewie and Brian. Lately, I have felt like they have hogged much of the screen time while some others haven't been getting as much.
I never get tire of seeing Glen rip on Brian. Especially in Jerome is the New Black, I only watch that episode for that scene. My favorite is when Brian beated the living daylights out of Brian in Quagmires' Dad. Brian didn't know Ida was Quagmires' dad but when Brian threw up, that shows what an unlikeable character he has become. Brian used to a supporter of gay rights but now he is a hypocrite.
Peter and Lois have the new villians on the show. Ever since they were kids, they have mean, unlikeable to family and friends. Lois was a bully in high school and Peter made fun of a kid who was visiting his mothers' grave. Horrible characters who used to be likeable.
I've never had problems with politically incorrect humour, I'm actually an enthusiast of it.I don't know if it was because I was stoned when I watched the two latest episodes of Family Guy, but some things have shocked me.Let's start by the thing that shocked me the most, Peter acting in a childish way trying to sneak with his scissors behinds his back, then Lois repreends him,saying those weren't his scissors,seconds later he comes back with his arms totally cut saying "Scissors are jerks".What the fuck MacFarlene?Just what the fuck?Do you think little children cutting themselves with scissors are funny?Fuck man,seing Meg threatening suicide or mentioning she cuts herself is something, but Peter acted in a infantile way and came back with his arms bleeding,that was fucking bizarre.The second thing that shocked was Lois crying while she sticks her finger down her throat,she was saying "Oh God,what have I done,what have I done." and then she throws up.Bulimia have always been a subject of jokes in Family Guy but that was different,you could see Lois was desperate, she was regretfull of eating,you see,the sadical thing is that a LOT of middle class housewifes do that,because they think they're not attractive to their husbands anymore,my neighboor did it,exploring the troubles of the american middle class and creating comical situations with then is one thing, but that was just sick man.Really MacFarlane, what the fuck is happening to you?
I enjoy politically incorrect humor too but I like it when it's funny and smart. Those last incidents you mentioned where right on the money. Subjects like bulemina are no laughing matter and shouldn't be make fun of unless it's handled correctly. Seth doesn't bother to try. WTFSeth?
|Meg needs a lot more praise than the other characters. One thing I really am getting sick of is that they play live action clips from a movie or some stupid video (Like the ape scraching himself). Not talking about the conway twitty or david bowie stuff, just the live action stuff in general, though I hate Conway Twitty and David Bowie appearing on here. Why do they play a clip of a movie now when they show the Griffins watching television? Remember when they actually parodied scenes instead of taking the ACTUAL MOVIE footage?! Are they THAT cheap?|
What I really can't stand is the gay humor. I'm not homophobic but this show has become so homophobic it's not funny. Seth, if you can read this, please take this advice. Stop making everybody gay!! That includes Peter. I'm sick of him dressing up in female attire. It was funny when he was dressed up for a Halloween party in Love Blacutally, but seeing him do it all the time just as much as Stewie makes me want to switch channels. The same for him being naked. That makes me vomit.
I saw Cool Hand Peter and when the cop said Handsome to Peter, Peter said yes. To me that burns me because Peter isn't all that. It shows irony. Stan Smith is the handsome one. And as I said before, Peter naked all the time makes me vomit. LITERALLY!!!
