Am I the only one who thinks that one of the highest rated (well, according to some) cartoons of all time is one package of complete bullsh*t?

I don't get it why a show with lame and random pop culture references, jokes that takes 30 minutes before delivering the punchline, and the obvious fact that it PLAGIARIZED THE HELL OUT OF THE SIMPSONS (CAN NO ONE SEE IT!?!?!?!) became so popular.

To those Family Guy fans, am I the wrong one here? If so, give me reasons why you enjoy the show.

I totally agree with you output.
We ain't pushing the boundaries, we're blowing them up.
We ain't trying to expand the scene, we want the scene to erupt.

Just need to chill out and take it for what it is. Genius.

The main reason I picked up guitar was to impress a girl who I knew played. It worked, she was showing me her boobs within a month.

its an awful show especially compared to its rivals, south park, futurama, simpsons and even king of the hill

This has been discussed many times I'm sure. I don't find it funny, personally.

Metal is a sub-genre of metalcore since metalcore is more popular therefore better.

A few of the random gags are funny, but watching the show is a bit tiring. There's just no lasting comedic merit in that show, just cheap gags placed throughout an episode with a loose theme.

That's how I find it anyway...

What you have here is called an O-P-I-N-I-O-N. (http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/opinion).

And an annoyingly long sig, that you should think about shortening because seriously, I don't want to scroll 5 kajillion miles just to read that other people think you're an idiot. I'd rather scroll an inch and THEN find out that your opinion sucks.

hasn't been good since about season 3, the characters are vehicles for jokes rather than characters in the traditional sense of the word, overusing jokes from season to season (hey, if we repeat them over and over they'll become funny eventually, right?) and just general idiotic lowest-common-denominator humour.

takes nothing away from season 2 and 3, when the show actually had plots and a few jokes that weren't flashbacks.

I like Family Guy. Sometimes, yeah, it can just be random gags with no actual story, but its entertaining. I would never call it a comedic masterpiece, its alright. There are better shows, but its fun to watch.

The only show worse than Family Guy out of the adult cartoons is King of the Hill. Family Guy at least tries to be funny even if it fails at least 3/4 of the time.

King of the Hill is SO much better than Family Guy. Seriously.

OP, you are not the only one. I have failed to laugh even once at Family Guy.
The Simpsons rip-offs included.

My exact point of view. Watching that show is tiring as hell. It's like you wait for all the jokes, you tell yourself 'in the end, it will all make sense' repeatedly, you wait for 10 minutes of a scene to resolve, you tell yourself 'in the end, it will all make sense' again...

10 minutes later: THERE'S A HOLE IN THE TV SCREEN AND YOUR HAND IS BLEEDING.

That's why King of the Hill got canceled and replaced by The Cleveland Show, right?

I kinda' agree with this. I think the first 3seasons are the best, the stuff after is pretty good. But the newest stuff, from about 07 till now, is pretty bad.

Family guy has it's moments. When it isn't relying on the whole "flashback"or "Like the time I..." routine.
When they rip on Meg out of nowhere is funny, other than that the show sucks.

American Dad is way funnier and written better.

But South Park is the KING of all cartoon shows.

Who cares if it makes sense. You aren't supposed to watch Family Guy for intelligent, well thought out social commentary, you watch it to laugh and laugh only.

family guy is a poorly written simpsons rip off that was made purely so teenagers could look up one clip per episode on youtube, tell there friends, and then forget about it

the south park episodes on the subject mirror my own opinion of the show

I don't really like Family Guy that much, but I have to say that Peter Griffin's laugh is the best laugh that any cartoon character has, period.
