When a show or movie is downright awful 90% of the time. But when a funny joke from said show is posted online without context, people start to believe the show isn't complete shit, but instead some misunderstood gem.
The Family Guy Effect -
TV Show: *Makes slightly clever joke*
Random Internet user: "Wow that's so funny, I should share it online"
Other Internet users: "Man this is funny, I wonder why people give this show such a hard time."
