Very formulaic and repetative mainstream animated comedy. Other than a few jokes that could be cast-offs from the NEWER series of The Simpsons, half the humour starts with words such as "remember the time when..." which lead into some "humorous" random flashback sequence, the other half being visual references to pop culture past and present that you can see coming from a mile off... Loses it's freshness well within the 3 episode mark.

Also manages to spawn annoying catch phrases that trendies and wannabe liberal hipsters like to repeat.

The fans are usually irritating too.
Kid 1: family guy iz so awesum!1
Kid 2: No, go and watch some Blackadder, Red Dwarf, or if you realy need animated comedy, South Park. At least they don't resort to 1937284562 "remember the time when..." jokes

Family Guy is an animated TV show created by Seth MacFarlane in 1999. It was then cancelled in 2002, but production then began soon after huge DVD sales kicked in.

Relies on pop culture and flashbacks to various points in history or geography, involving the characters and their hilarious outcomes.

Recently attacked by the creators of South Park, where the writers of Family Guy turned out to be manatees that would take a ball from their tank and put it in a small pile to form an episode.

Although, the episode was completely pointless, because we all know Family Guy’s writing isn’t that great, except for maybe the first 3 seasons as the jokes weren’t as random and were actually interconnected to the story.

Ever since the South Park episodes “Cartoon Wars”, every South Park fuck has jumped on the bandwagon and hated Family Guy. But what they don’t realize is that if you base a cartoon on total randomness and pop culture, you NEVER run out of material.

The South Park boys wish they had the amount of Family Guy’s audience, too bad.

Who the hell cares whether or not the show has a point? I don’t give a flying fuck, I want to laugh, and when I do, I watch Family Guy.

The exact reason why The Simpsons isn’t funny anymore, if their show was based off pop culture, you’d have never ending material.
South Park joke: Kid crawling up ladies vagina
Audience: lol?
Family Guy joke: Like that time I forgot how to sit down
Audience: OMG HE TACKLED THE CHAIR.

A show that ran for threee seasons on fox and was then canceled, though it was incredibly witty and entertaining. After DVD sales of the show made more revenue than many of fox's current shows, they decided to uncancel the show and continue making episodes. Family guy is now in its 4th season
Family guy is as funny as Mat groenings The Simpsons and funnier than his Futurama. You can now watch this shows, whos canceling by fox shows the networks terrible lack of judgement, and whos uncanceling two years later shows the networks regret for all the crappy choices they make, on sunday at 9pm on Fox.

a funny animated series on FOX that got cancelled, but it was never funnier than the simpsons or futurama. now that the show has been brought back to Fox, a lot of faggots watch it which ruins the show, it lacks the originality and hilarity that it first had and sucks a lot, and actually has a reason to be cancelled this time.
bill: yo did u see that new family guy episode last night

jim: no family guy sucks balls now

Could be funny, depends on your definition of funny.

A show for people who have the attention span of salt.
It jumps for a part where Peter is talking to his wife, to fighting with a chicken.

It does have a plot but, that plot is (often) inturrpted by pointless gags that go on for unholy amounts of time.

The fanboys of this show will make you want to stab people though the internet.

The best charater is Quagmire because sex is funny...
If you think fart is funny, watch Family Guy. If not watch...waits for an intelligent show... Battlestar Gliatica?

Or read The Mist!

1. Hilarious Fox animated show about a family (the Griffins). The main characters consist of Peter Griffin- a fat caucasian man with mental retardation. He used to mainly work on a toy factory, fishing boat, and now at the Pattucket Brewery.
Lois Griffin- Peter's wife, works at home. She is sometimes the voice of reason and is obsessed with sex.
Meg Griffin- Peter's unattractive and despised daughter.
Chris Griffin- 13-year old kid who is slightly smarter than his dad, Peter
Stewie Griffin- Intelligent talking baby with goals to conquer the Earth and kill his mother. (becomes gay later on).
Brian- funny talking dog with a sarcastic sense of humor. (becomes a jackass later on).

2. Same show after 2006 where the funny cartoon is suddenly transformed into a very succesful propaganda against religion, abstinence, America, and supports abortions and marijuana.
The comedy for the show has become secondary to the biased propaganda message the show is trying to get through to young people. The show has lost quality and people against it had been sterotyped as dogmatic Christians. It is now a successful attempt for Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy's creator) to control American society.
1. Who's your favorite character in Family Guy?
2. Marijuana must be legalized because Family Guy says so, Heil MacFarlane!
