    stewie, brian and quagmire are the only interesting characters on family guy...peter at times.

    Futurama is where it's at.

    the only remotely interesting character in futurama is bender. there is no humour in futurama and if there is it's so subtle i'd rather take a nap and futurama is REALLY good for that. really, futurama just seems like another one of these "makes you think" shows that pseudo-intellectuals would love. doesn't interest me at all.

    Almost anything is better than the simpsons now.

    I like Family Guy 60% of the time, but the best of the Simpsons would leave it in the dust.

    I love the Family Guy...I have never really watched the Simpsons...i've caught parts of episodes every now a then, never really cared for it...

    what's the best season (Simpsons) that's out on DVD? I've been meaning to rent some...

    nigga please.

    what in the hell are you talking about? "makes you think" shows.....you've never watched an episode have you? it's stupid yet, witty humor that's actually funny. if anything, family guy's the one that would appeal to pseudo-intellectuals with all those vague and humorless references.

    when watching family guy, the only high points are the few times that stewie, brian and quagmire interact with each other or with the other characters(which even they sometimes fall short) through these boring inane plots.

    speak for yourself buddy.

    just yesterday, i watched the episode where burns makes a million dollar bet with some texas oil ty••••(or something to that effect) in a game of baseball...where burns fills his roster up with early 90's all-stars.(strawberry, griffey jr, sax, mattingly, clemens, canseco, ect.) and they all end up in freak accidents except for strawberry(keeping homer from playing) until the end.

    1992... i'd think it would fall under that 'golden era', no?

    i watched that episode a long time ago. it sucked. i didn't think it was that, the old simpsons, supposedly the best cartoon of all time. guess it's just horribly overrated.

    Remember when he kept telling Mattingly to cut his sideburns?

    Favorite episode - The one where Marge becomes a cop.

    yeah the golden age of the simpsons is in the pas but so is the golden age of family guy, you stack up the new episodes against the old episodes and the new ones look like shit. They're just randomly trying to be funny now, the new crop of writers arent as funny as the first run. South park is where it's at right now.

    south park is horrible now, and has been since the third season or something. they're trying too hard to be smart and forgot what made them great in the beginning. it is a cartoon and the purpose of cartoons is to entertain.

    LOL@ "why is family guy better". I'm sure that the Simpsons being on so long has nothing to do with that.

    if you watch the commentary on the DVD's for South Park then you will see that Parker and Stone werent really happy with the show early and feel that it didn't really it's stride until the 6th Season...I watch a lot of those old south park episodes and think a lot of them for the most part aren't that good..


    These newer episodes of family guy though are just so hit and miss at times now. Whereas the episodes from the first three seasons were all pretty solid..

    Wow.

    When shows like Family Guy dumb their content down, they are trying to appeal to people like you.

    You are a walking, talking, typical target of broadcast companies trying to make some easy money. Congrats.
