The show that ripped-off "The Simpsons" is one of the most loved/hated show on earth. It's funny, intense, and etc. Back then, the show has been cancelled twice by FOX, and now they want it. Who would've known that several people hated the series, including animators, who express their opinion and/or feelings about "Family Guy". The show maybe stupid at times, but it's an okay show. The only character I feel really bad the most is: Meg Griffin, and the character that REALLY should've stayed dead is Brian because honestly, his egotism and cruelty is really getting on my nerves. But the one thing that really, really, REALLY irritates me the most about the show is those stupid gag cutaways that really has nothing to do with the episodes. It's getting old and I want that to change (it's no wonder people chose "South Park" over this show). This show has received a lot of criticism from so many people and animated TV shows (such as: The Simpsons, South Park, Futurama, because of their unsuitable content, their lame cutaways and somewhat derivative plot. Sometimes, and I repeat, SOMETIMES I wish the show really was cancelled. Okay, so I admit I have a love/hate relationship with the series, but at least I'm honest about it.
The only score I would give "Family Guy" is a 4.0 out of 10.
I started watching your "family" show several years ago and thought it was mildly amusing.
Then the rape jokes.
Is that how low you have to stoop to get attention?
I wouldn't have even bothered to mention it (just gone about my normal, non-viewing, anti rant to friends) If it hadn't been for a group of girlfriends and I just now having the "it used to be funny" convo.
Also, even straight women would fuck Meg before Peter.
You know, when I heard of Family Guy being a knock off of the Simpsons, I couldn`t help but feel a bit excited because I loved the TV show the Simpsons and I thought that I could get a real thrill of this show and man, was I wrong after I watched an episode of it. First off, I could`nt belive how trashy and disrespectful this show was all the way from the beginning to the the end of each season based on the summaries I read on wikipedia and personally, I could really rant on all the Griffins one by one.
Peter Griffin: First off, you`re a Homer Simpson knockoff and the only thing that is different about you is your style of comedy. Homer may have had his inappropriate moments on his own show (like the tree house of horror where he danced in church naked) but his actions don`t even come close to offensive as yours. I mean, he even does a better job at being a father than you. Homer loves all 3 of his kids but you... you practically treat both your sons like they don`t exist and you beat up the living snot out of your child Meg (It really baffles me why this has not caused media outrage). Personally, I think someone should cancel your show again, because you deserve it.
Lois: just like your husband Peter, I don`t think even a 1 day old kid would mistake you for a good parent because you`re simply terrible with the way you cheat on Peter several times and how you let him take advantage of you in many terrible scenarios. The only sympathy I can give you is when I yell, "HEY LOIS, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? STEWIE IS TRYING TO KILL YOU!" Other than that, I hate your guts.
Quagmire: you is a sex fiend/molester/pervert and you deserve to go to jail for life. (The same goes to that Herbert guy)
Chris: Just do yourself a favor and grow up. I think your antics fall on the offensive side of telling jokes and personally, I just can`t stand how low you go sometimes.
Stewie: Someone should send you to a psychiatric hospital. And Family Guy die hards, I don`t know what is so entertaining about a toddler trying to kill his own mother. It`s just wrong and totally uncalled for.
Meg: out of all the members of the Griffin family, I can`t help but feel sorry for you. All that pathetic excuse for a family does is bully you mercilessly non-stop. I`m surprised social services have`nt gotten wind of the Griffin parents treatment to you because you deserve much better than them. I hope that before the season ends, you will end up in a better family that truly shows the respect you deserve.
Brian: Let me just tell you this: I was probably the only guy who was happy to see you kicked the bucket in 2013. I felt the same way when the car ran over you just like when Gus Fring from Breaking Bad got killed. You were ***phobic, didn`t show even a moment of respect for any religion and really had your moments where you took the show too far with your "humor". I think that the universe gave you and Stewie what you deserved that day. I also liked Vinny better than you. In fact, if I was walking down a street one day and I got to a fork in the road and I saw you and Vinny on opposite ends of the street, I would stop. Suddenly, when I see a car on both ends of the fork speeding to you and Vinny and you both fail to notice the car in time to escape on your own and I had to choose between helping you and Vinny, I would have IMMEDIATELY rushed to save Vinny over you. As far as I`m concerned, when I look at the Griffin family, I still see Vinny in Brians place.
And to Seth MacFarlene: Someone once told me in my life, "Look, you may think that comedy is not serious but there is a clear line between entertaining and
The Parent Television Council has named your show the morally worst show of the week more than 40 times and even reading their descriptions of the episodes stuns me with shock that you concider what you do comedy. You honestly have no idea how wrong your show is and I really hate your style of humor. I think that Hollywood should just give you the boot like Sarah Silverman.
Upon hearing of your upcoming show staring Jesus, I will no longer be a viewer of your show. Blasphemy, is taking things too far. I hope all Christians, and believers in Christ show your show the door. By the way, did you vote and donate for The Obamanator too?

I don't know how to end my title. It's become boring, lazy, preachy, unnecessarily offensive, abusive... It just makes no sense. Nothing does. But that's ok. What's not ok is how they f***ed up so bad. Peter is an ass***, Louis is a c***, Brian is... BRIAN!!! Meg is boring, Chris is bland, Quagmire is... a rapist, child molester, etc. (seriously, why would you like someone like that?). Stewie however, is now cute, funny, and tolerable, so that's a plus. Cleveland is a great character, that's also ok, and I can't really say anything bad about Joe. However, the stories are either ridiculous or painful to watch, there is no development and there is so much filler that I could watch any of the new seasons in 4 hours including commercials if I take away all the filler.
And since I'm not Brian, I'll say I understand the people who like this show. It's so bad it's actually good sometimes (like The Room) but it's still terrible. Just... terrible.
(If I were Brian, I would've said "This is my idea, and whomever likes this crap of a show is a r***ed idiot. I'm right and if you don't agree, get a brain).
~The musical theatre genre used for the soundtrack of the show.
~ The vulgar humor. Okay I'm immature.
~ Ernie the chicken, Conway Twitty and the long af cutaways. It just wastes time.
~ Lack of character development (ex: Peter learns a lesson and it goes out the window right when the credits roll) I'm also critical that the writers CANNOT commit to changes in the story lines like when they killed off Brian (though I like him far more than Vinny) and James Woods (he should've stayed dead :l ).
I wish it did rely off of the plot instead of the gross out humor and cutaways but hey, it's a show I love to watch and it always guaranteed to make me laugh.
do you guys know what i think and what will be best for you guys and the family guy universe, i think you should bring back all the dead family guy characters like Loretta, Muriel, Diane Simmons greased up deaf guy etc. family guy was a lot interesting when these guys were there. and also make stew Gilligan Griffin return back to his world domination stance and also to killing his mum Lois. stew is no longer as interesting as know you guys wont heed to this advice but pls think twice. by Emmanuel Daniels 08111823857 is my phone number
Okay let me just say, Family Guy is THE best show to reach television. Family Guy is definitely has been the biggest show of the 00's (not so much the 10's because everyone is over it now). It's nowhere near as funny as it used to be, but the newer episodes have really hilarious moments too and I still think it's the funniest show ever. I don't know how they come up with this stuff but we need a moment of silence to honor the writers who are true geniuses. I don't like people who say it's a rip off of the Simpsons, yes it was inspired by the Simpsons but it's still way different humor, the only thing that's the same is that there's three kids, parents, and a dog. People are saying that Bob's Burgers is the best thing now and that it's better than Family Guy now, which I totally disagree, Family Guy has declined in humor but it's still very hilarious. I will never get tired of re watching episodes, I will laugh out loud each time.
Esatto!I Griffin la mia serie preferita assieme a quella dei all'inverosimile ed molto coinvolgente soprattutto dalla stagione 9 in sono molti personaggi divertenti e carismatici,il mio preferito fra questi rimane tutt'ora Joyce Kinney,la nuova giornalista di Quahog 5 sono un sacco di canzoni composte veramente bene e poi ci sono una marea di sitruazioni surreali .Non c' stata una sola puntata che non mi sia piaciuta,capolavoro assoluto dei Telefilm!
I used to really love Family Guy. Some people say it's a rip off of the Simpsons and you know what? Sure, maybe it is but it still was a funny show and wasn't all that much like the Simpsons.
Seasons 1, 2, & 3 of Family are my favorite. I liked how while they did make cultural references, they still had a somewhat plot. Sure, there were a few boring episodes in those seasons but there weren't that many, at leasr in my opinion. Family guy started getting stale to me when Season 7 happened. I don't know, I try to get into the newer episodes but I can't.
The thing that kind of disappointed me was all the character changes.
Peter = Originally was a dumb ass but still had a heart of gold and some common sense. Now, he's completely stupid, acts very childish at times, lacks common sense, and is more of an ass than he already was. I prefer the old Peter who had common sense and wasn't a complete *** (no offense).
Lois = Originally was a hard working and loving woman who cared deeply for her family. Now, she is a hypocritical, bitchy type of character who can be very malicious at times. Like Peter, I prefer her older incarnation when she was the voice of reason and was more likeable.
Meg = Went from a normal acting teenager who just wanted to be popular and "fit in". Now, she's a deeply disturbed punching bag. Other than her being the punching bag most of the time, I actually like how they tried to give her more of a personality, even if it is disturbing... I'm just happy they don't punk on her that much anymore because it's not all that funny to me. Maybe the first few times because you're like "Whoa... Really? lol" but it got old pretty quick. I'm still pissed that she reverted back to her spineless self in "Dial Meg for Murder" or even the "Seahorse Seashell Party"
Chris = Much like his father, dumb but very easy going. Now, he's a somewhat rude, angst-ridden kid who is still somewhat dumb. Chris never really appealed to me. I thought he was kind of a boring character so I don't have much to say. I will say I don't really like the episodes that center around him.
Stewie = Originally was an evil baby bent on world domination and killing Lois. Now, he is a super flamboyant, stereotypical gay who occasionally has an evil scheme. I'm okay with the new Stewie but I do prefer the older one.
Brian = Went from the voice of reason and laid back dog to a self-absorbed, political, arrogant asshat. I much prefer him in the older seasons but I suppose the new one has his controversy too since they use him more in political or religion episodes.
The show still is okay, it just has a lot of hit or miss episodes these days. For me, there have been a lot of misses but I'm not going to give up hope that the creators will find some balance for the show again. Now don't get me wrong, I don't HATE the show. I still like and enjoy it at times. All I'm saying is that in my opinion, Seasons 1-3 will always be my favorite. Here's to hoping Family guy will have some more good episodes to come.
Naturally, people don't like change. What the hell did you think it meant "dysfunctional family"? They're not SUPPOSED to be good people. You don't find it funny? That's fine. But I can't stand it when people try to take things to the next level. Quagmire and Stewie beat up Brian so that makes them animal abusers? Really? And you say Peter's gotten stupider? No, you've gotten older and you're only gonna laugh at what you already see as funny. So there really is no winning this argument at all. Better to just click "x" and watch something else rather then obsess over how bad it is.
I used to be able to put up with some of the stuff that was a little sick and demented just because they would come up with brilliant comedy like Peter and the chicken, the throwing up game, and Stevies devious mind but lately they have gone beyond funny to outright nasty perversion. Just because your animated like the simpsons or futurama doesn't mean you have the same quality. I cannot watch anymore. Thanks but no thanks.
This 8 out of 10 is for the first three seasons and some of the earlier season 4 episodes. Family Guy lost it's appeal for a while. I used to be obsessed with this show, but later I lost obsession. Jokes became the same over and over again, the characters changed their personality, many of the jokes also became very offensive, and also many of the jokes not making any sense. I personally quit Family Guy forever after the Life of Brian saga.
This was one of the funniest shows on TV. Peter's wacky antics were always something to enjoy and I enjoyed seeing what new torture Meg goes through.
But it has seriously gone downhill, nothing really makes me laugh anymore and I even forced myself to laugh at what was supposed to be funny because I was in denial. But I can't deny anymore, it's just not that funny anymore.
