  • When Quagmire learns his sister Brenda is being beaten by her boyfriend, comedy ensues... NOT!! NO, NO, NOPE, NO WAY, NO!


    While, Family Guy has gone down hill over the years, I can always count on a few good laughs, and a couple "what the hell" moments, but tonight I didn't get either of them.

    I tuned in for comedy, and what I got was a badly written episode of Law and Order: SVU! I thought we'd moved past the 80s where sitcoms had episode with dramatic themes and issues they were trying to push on society. I thought this was Family Guy not The Facts of Life.

    It could have been really funny, like mocking shows that use to do that.

    Family Guy is a show that has never been taken seriously, and it was never meant to be, but now they expect us to be on bored for an emotional storyline that was to blunt, predictable, and serious to be taken seriously.
