Animated sitcom that uses pop culture references in place of jokes
Quoting "Family Guy" is no substitute for developing a sense of humour
by Weldo July 26, 2008
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

Verb: To point out the punchline or gag of your own joke so that your audience, which you assume is daft, will understand and laugh.
Person 1: My head is actually extremely hard
Person 1: Hahaha that's sexual!!!
Person 2: Way to Family Guy your own joke, man.

A great cartoon cancelled by FOX. The main character, Peter, was even dumber than dare i say it, HOMER SIMPSON. And their evil baby Stewie was so badass.
I have every episode of family guy on DVD.

The show that forever ruined comedy, since it proved that random, irrelevant statements are funny. It is similar to Star Wars and Jurassic Park, which by their "perfect" special effects ruined special effects forever.
Family Guy is incredibly funny! But how, and at what cost?

a highly overrated show popular with geeks with no originality of their own because they need to watch it to get some lame new catchphrase. despite what some think, it doesn't copy the simpsons. it also has less direction than a blind Jew. mostly comprised of flashback scenes with no connection to the plot (if there is any) and features boring rants by a lemonheaded baby.
A: Wow, why am I watching this Family Guy crap when South Park is on?
B: I don't now, maybe you're queer.
