I honesty do not see the appeal of Family Guy. It can be funny sometimes, but most of the jokes are just plain crude and dumb. ;-;

Futurama is funny ALWAYS with inside jokes and just plain original plot line. It is 42,000x awesomererrerereer.

Well im kinda sitting on the fence with this one, but I do enjoy the hijinks that Planet express has to endure due to their senile boss's missions he plans out for em.

But as I said before, im torn between the two shows, and to those who disagree, can bite my shiney metal ass! xP

THANK YOU, you know how many times i have said the same thing about Family Guy to people. I know i am in the minority on this topic i think Family Guy is just dumb.

Edit: bender is the best.

but Simpsons on the other hand...wow really hate to say this but that show has been sorely lacking for some years. hopefully the writers get it together for the last two seasons so the show can end on a high note.

For a show i grew up loving it sucks to see just how mediocre it has become.

That is because they are putting too much awesome on Futerama as of the moment.

Futurama is a big favorite of mine, a lot of morals, a lot of emotion, and a lot of stuff I can relate to. Its hardly comparable to Family Guy because Futurama unlike most animated comedy series actually follows a story in the episodes.

Whereas things like The Simpsons and Family practically act like they repeat everyday exactly the same, and then things 5 years later into the series barily change.

Futurama despite how I loved the fact that they brought it back, I haven't been a huge fan of the new episodes. I feel like I'm watching the first few episodes again. They were good, but the jokes are a bit off and it wasn't as funny. That's me though.

Actually that's where you are abit wrong Jake.

You see, Family guy does follow abit to the timeline that it's not the same day everyday. For one, Susie's baby is now in the newer episodes. They mentioned that Joe's son was in Iraq before he popped up on thanksgiving. They still keep the fact that Quagmire's dad is now a she, aka Ida. And that the old female Anchor woman in the newscast; Diana, is dead and replaced with a new younger blonde. Along with being dead in the show is Jillian's husband, and Mort Goldman's wife, and James Woods...then again knowing ol James he might pop up again. Quick someone fetch some candy and a box! xD

And they finally published Brian's book, which sold a record defying...0 purchases. =x

I didn't say that they didn't do that, but it changes very periodically. With all the jokes and comedy they make in the show its hard. They've made it where there was a hurricane, a zombie infection, and all sorts of stupid-crazy stuff happens but then the next episode does anything look like it changed? In some, yes; in most, no. Its just a giant $&#* excuse for lore for the sake of the comedy. Not @^*% on it, but in comparison to Futurama? Nothing.

Just because I have a strong opinion on it doesn't mean I take it seriously. Razz I'm like this on pretty much any subject.

Observe: I see a total jackass, lets say Justin Bieber. Controversial so naturally I grow a strong opinion based on him. Do I hate him as a person seriously? No. Do I take him as an artist seriously? Not at all. The context of what I'm taking serious isn't general to everything, but specific to what I criticise. So when I'm criticising Family Guy's plot and story, etc, simultaneously my opinion on everything else about the show is not to be taken seriously.

So that being the case, dont throw a tantrum when someone proves you wrong on one tiny itty bitty detail. Futurama has somewhat of a same situation where things happened yet they dont explain em either. They are both good shows in my opinion, just that Futurama needs to crank out more new epis at a time. That's where Family guy is slightly in the lead in my book at the moment. But give it time, Futurama will come roaring back.

So yeah, chill, I like both shows. I'm not damning either one of em, just proving that it isnt the same epi over and over again.

A tantrum? Are you talking about yourself, because neither me or lucky are having a tantrum right now. Responding back with my thoughts isn't a tantrum, and you proved nothing wrong; this is all opinionated and biased. There's nothing to prove.

I'm not throwing a tantrum, jeez chill out.

and it's not an opinion when the timeline has changed. Look at the show for yourself. Cleveland is gone to his own spinoff (bad move IMO)
Bonnie had her baby, Stewie doesnt talk like a dictonary anymore, Brian's book is published, though failing miserably, and Diana is dead. =/

If that's an opinion, you and me are on TOTALLY dif wavelengths.

Again CHILL. Stop trying to debate a show about farts and rooster fights with a homicidal baby that wants to kill his mother.
