I'm much more of a Harvey Birdman, Family Guy and Simpsons fan. But I don't have kids. . .

The Family Guy is great stuff (see my avatar). That show is highly underrated. I guess it was a little too raw for Fox, but I'm surprised that Fox ever agreed to air it in the first place.

I also like Ren & Stimpy and The Tick. My son introduced me to R&S. At first, I didn't know what to make of them, but because I have a childish sense of humor, it didn't take long before they grew on me. They are out on DVD now too. Must-have-Ren-&-Stimpy-DVDs!!

Yup, all new episodes! He (Seth MacFarlane) also have a new series out on both Fox and Cartoon network called "American Dad" I've seen the first episode. I didn't really care for it, but I'll give it a season to see how it pans out.

You didn't like it because it makes horrible fun of the right-wingers. The part where God calls Bush and tells him to stop talking about their supposed relationship was classic. Of course it's only a cartoon right? Bush would never claim that God wanted him to be President...

I thought some parts were a bit silly (ie "Oh, I thought I had to fart.") but it was Family Guyish humor, what can ya do?

Edit: My comment was originally on the joelcam/spongebob thread when it went off-topic. The off-topic portions and my post then split off after I made fun of you guys:

So now my post is pointless.

Now back to our regular programming.

No, that isn't it, I just couldn't get into it. Probably mostly for the simple reason it isn't family guy. The fish was kind of annoying, he needs to be flushed in episode 2. The alien is OK, but the excretion thing got old quickly. The siblings are pretty good. The father is still an idiot, but he seems to lack the likeable charm I see in Peter. Paranoia/control freak just isn't as funny as buffoon. Then again, I like the Three Stooges.

It just wasn't as clever as Family Guy IMNSHO.

I agree. He just isn't as loveable. Then again, what over-paranoid right-wing government agent is? Smile

The fish was kinda dumb until you find out why he can talk and what happened to the guy that had his brain swapped with the goldfish.

So what are you favorite Family Guy episodes? I like pretty much all the episodes from seasons 1 and 2 (haven't seen anything from season 3 yet) but a couple of them stand out as being particularly funny to me:

"I am Peter, Hear Me Roar"- where Peter gets a little too "in touch" with his feminine side. One scene in particular nearly had me on the floor-- where Peter tries to nurse Stewie.

I also like "Wasted Talent", where Peter gets to tour the Pawtucket Patriot brewery and later ends up doing an awesome piano recital while he's drunk.

It's not Peter that is funny in that scene... It's Stewie. When he realizes what's going on and then he starts shuddering heh.

Heh. When "Death" gets to do some drinking because the college kids die of alcohol poisoning.

I like the Brian/Stewie travel episodes. I also like the episode when Peter forms Petoria, his own country.
