BBC 2 now
is funnier than funniest Family Guy. There's also more funny Simpsons episodes.
So, in conclusion, no.
thanks, tom. for stealing my thunder.
we can call it a team effort, if you want?
I didn't even have to do anything! can I take credit for some of your other good posts?
I had a look through some of your previous posts, this seems to be as good as it gets.
and now you're part of the Team Tom feat. lil Klaire you get partial credit for ALL the bad ones.
you just won me over. I'm in. do you take credit for my bad posts too? I post a lot of bad stuff, beware.
It says 'Team Tom feat. lil Klaire' NOT 'Team Klaire feat lil Tom'. So no, I don't get credit for your bad posts.
Just your good ones.
because all my posts are SOLID GOLD GOOD.
cancer: funnier than family guy.
however cancer:funnier than american dad
it's a sensible opinion
to the plot. So it's just a little rubbish.
So says South Park & I agree wholeheartedly.
Simpsons >>>>> Family Guy
Only marginally better than The Simpsons, I think.
I'd say that about 10 or so episodes of South Park are the greatest things ever though. Honestly, works of art.
Although you're totally wrong on games consoles, you're totally right here.
Family Guy. So I can't give a fair judgement...but the Simpsons was the projenitor of this ilk of comedy cartoons really...
Really don't like Family Guy.
This sums up a few of the basic points quite well:-
(not my blog, btw)
We had to watch that show dozens of times for media.
Over and over and over and over.
I wanted to die.
The worst was when we'd pause every ten seconds and analyse it.
Worst show ever.
mediocre futurama > mediocre simpsons > mediocre family guy
bad futurama > bad family guy > bad simpsons
overall yeah, futurama is a lot more consistent in its funniness, but the funniest bits of the other two are funnier than the funniest bits of that. I think the characters in futurama are my favourite though.
Ren and Stimpy>>>>>>>>any other comedy cartoon.
is better than Family Guy. But i would agree that South Park is the best of the 3. Maybe not the best cartoon, but how come no one mentions King of the Hill, its hilarious.
but the last couple of series (i.e. what they're showing on bbc3) are so fucking terrible. most of the random flashbacks are painfully unfunny, and most of the jokes are random flashbacks.
anybody who disagrees has a malfunctioning sense of humour
but it's true that the more recent 'Family Guy's seem to rely on the non sequitar jokes rather than a coherent plot through an episode.
But the Simpsons ain't what it was either.
NOT malfunctioning etc.
Kids! Don't drink and type!
but they've created absolute genius in far creater quantities, and for much longer than family guy.
The earlier Simpsons were proper, well rounded sitcoms. As the pure comedy vessel it goes for now, it completely fails. Family Guy is worth it for the individual sketches; the flashbacks are the show! The quicker you get past that, the quicker you can just enjoy it. The 'new muppet show voices' in one of the recent ones was worth the last eight series of The Simpsons.
jesus fuck, i'm such a geek for typing this out.
But seriously. I do like a bit of Family Guy. Simpsons just isn't particularly funny anymore. It only succeeds now because everybody loves the characters. Nostalgia does funny things to people
I've posted it before, and I'll post it again
In fact I'm going to watch some family guy now.
I'm watching the south park about family guy. Amazing.
simpsons v family guy thread.
there is no competition, the simpsons is better in every imaginable way. family guy is funny too, but it has no soul.
it is better at the moment, but in the nineties the simpsons was the best cartoon.
I think the actual question we need to look at here is when will our troops finally be pulled out of Iraq?
it has bad...vibes...man...
once you go black, you go death
(millionare's thing, not jeanpierre_papin's)
Family Guy is hateful, ignorant, and painfully unfunny. Really, really bad television. Well, it is now. 1st 3 seasons I did quite like (nowhere near as much as Simpsons/South Park though), but since it came back its just been like an extended fart in the face of everyone in a vulnerable minority group (whilst simultaneously punching everyone with a sense of humour really hard in the stomach). Just depressing and nasty, and no I'm not concerned with political correctness (South Park is a good example of a show that actually takes a fearless stance to comedy), its just the darkness expressed in it that alienates me, like the bullying and childishness at the heart of their comedy.
I never laugh out loud at the Simpsons, but occassionally do when watching Family Guy, having said that...I think Family Guy is pretty poor but the Simpsons is worse.
(sorry, not really, from what I know of you you actually in general seem quite nice)
I am dead inside :(
but seriously, Futurama and South Park any day, just not the Simpsons or Family Guy.
the Simpsons were good when I was young and the episodes were fresh, but now I've seen the old ones too many times and the new ones are just bad.
I feel basically the same way.
All South Park (minus first season)= good
All Futurama = good
Family Guy = mediocre/hateful (depending on season)
Simpsons = old is good (genius even, but over-watched), new is pretty bad (tend to be about as funny as an episode of Yogi Bear, at least less offensive than new Family Guy though)
I watched it all a month or so ago and I actually really liked it...maybe because it's what I first saw really when I was younger. I wish I had more series though because I haven't seen that much :(
But actually when I was around 11 the first season did seem it was like the epitome of cool. This is not entirely a good reflection on it, I suppose. The idea of Kenny dying in every episode seemed really revolutionary to my 11 year-old self, though.
he was the best character, of course!
one episode I saw recently, not sure which series it's from, was the Lord of the Rings one where Butters watches the porno thinking it's Lord of the Rings, ah that was a good one, Butters is amazing too.
Again. What. The. Fuck?
I used to think your crazy views were because of your sex, then because of your nationality. Now I just think you're WRONG.
I love how open you are to opinions different from yours, you made the right choice signing up with this forum.
you're right. Maybe.
King Of The Hill
I didn't know it was possible to cringe at a cartoon, but that Simpsons episode that's just been on was absolutely awful.
Two new King Of The Hill episodes on C4 tonight and like 2:30 I'm still goin to watch them them. Dedication and that.
classic Simpsons (i.e series 2-9) is probably the best television ever aired. Whilst I quite like some episodes of Family Guy it's formula is so repetitive it becomes stale really really quickly.
family guy is overly formulaic and it has a tendency to reuse jokes and pack its episodes with filler. like that fucking chicken fight they insist of using that wasn't even funny the first time. i'm not talking little britain standard or anything like that, it can still be hilarious but it still lacking in a lot of ways.
