A television show best described by a shameless plagarism attempt, in an effort to create a cartoon series which could even be 1/2 as entertaining as The Simpsons.
Inspiration, is often the seed for works of great innovation. Imitation, isnt always a bad thing. Influence, is where techniquies are adopted, imitated, learned from and incorporated as a part of one's own unique style. Giving 'nodds', is where a writer will steal an idea for use in one of their own works - yet openly credit the original author. For example, in Office Space, the characters plan to use a bank robbing scheme which was already done in Superman III. So, they introduce this scheme such that one character says "yeah - just like they did in Superman III". Theres no shame in that, its like giving propps.
Then, we have plagarism. Family Guy is a series guilty of shameless idea theft - not just at the dialogue level, or the plot level - but I mean, I have seen exact sequences appear in Family Guy, which were stolen directly from The Simpsons. Its shameless idea theft. It's a crime.
The writers of Family Guy are incapable of creating innovative or original work, so they steal scenes from The Simpsons without even understanding why they are funny.
A young male who will give up countless hours listening to the problems of his very attractive female friends who talk about their apathetic, Baywatch jock of a boyfriend because he actually believes listening and genuinely caring is going to eventually get him laid. Although always surrounded by beautiful girls, the nice guy can’t get a girlfriend or even facilitate the alleviation of certain “drives” because he himself will always compare his “ordinary” physical appearance to the Baywatch beach bum’s. The nice guy would never capitalize on a vulnerable girl, objectify or cheat on a girl, he will go out of his way and bend over backwards to help his “friends” and will never ask for anything in return but no matter how intelligent, understanding, humorous, compassionate, trusting or loyal the nice guy is. The female cohort will always pass him up and endure any length of abuse, objectification, apathy and cold-heartedness from a man if he has physical attractiveness, fashion, big muscles and chiseled facial features because for her it's better than dealing with a man that will grovel at her feet when she tries to break up with him because he doesn't understand how pathetic and transparent appeasement really is.more...
The nice guy will eventually realize that his dependability and empathy will never be appreciated and all his friendships with females are all one-sided long before he realizes that putting up the effort to deal with a shallow, materialistic bitch is worth even ...

|5.||No Effort Girl|
The type of girl who has a mellow and laid back disposition. She is is too lazy overall in getting a guy to ask her out or sleeping with her.
