I recently started watching the show, and I love it. Stewie and Brian are hilarious. If there's anyone who hasn't seen the show, here's a good taste of it. Stewie pulls a Godfather on Brian:

Brian is my favorite character on all of TV...

I love how he lives in this world of flat-out chaos with Peter, Lois, and Stewie, and with martini in hand just kinda watches it float by with his cynical remarks and one-liners.

The most recent season was not their best work, but I have a feeling they'll be back with a vengeance in September.

American Dad has some pretty funny stuff in it, too.

The guy is just rich enough, just talented enough and just vindictive enough that I could see him doing this on purpose just to piss off fans and kill the show off.

He has a bunch of other interests and talents, so even if he needed the money he'd find an avenue to make more of it. And let's face it, behind that wise-ass persona lies a guy capable of being pretty damn cruel. His roasts showed that side of him and his general writing style does as well.

I could see him committing Seppuku here.

I'm usually not on the normal channels their on in syndication or otherwise. I finally stumbled on one and figured what the hell, I 'll watch it. 'Twas awesome.

last night I watched an episode where the wife (I can't remember her name) was rubbing sun-tan lotion on the wheel chair guys' wife at a cookout; and you see a hole get cut out of the fence (which Quagmire on the other side); a slight pause, then another hole about 1.5' below it lol. Then it quickly cut away.

I wouldn't place any of the three above the others, they do different things really well.
If I had to choose, I'd go SP, then Simpsons, then FG, but it'd be close. The biggest knock on FG is the one that SP nailed them on, the manatees tossing beach ball bit ideas into a hopper. It excels at finding the hilarity in a pop culture reference, but it's still little more than 'hey! remember when this happened, that was weird, wasn't it,' then on to the next bit.

Agreed.

South Park is significantly more clever. It's actual satire. Sure, they have their misses, but South Park's A game absolutely blows Family Guy's A game out of the water.

Though a bad South Park episode can be positively unwatchable (The Oprah Queef one and the Brittany Spears one spring immediately to mind) whereas I've not really seen a Family Guy that I can't at least keep on in the background.

The standard deviation for South Park is higher, but in the end it's just better as an aggregate.

The problem is that Peak Simpsons is much shorter than I'd like to admit.

The Simpons through about season 8 is just an incredible show, especially about 2-5. The 15+ years after that, however? Meh, not so much.

It's just incredible how long that show has been on. It's just strange to think that it will spend almost 2 decades just kinda playing out the string.

Woodland Critter Christmas is one of the few times I've ever done spit-take. Scott Tenorman Must Die rivals anything the Simpsons has ever generated. The Tom Cruise/Scientology episode was probably the best 'take down' I've seen on network television and if it wasn't that one, it was the Mormon episode.

Was about to post this. Every episode of Family Guy is watchable where as there are a bunch of South Park in episodes that are brutal to watch. But there's a BIG difference between a great South Park episode and a great Family Guy episode.

I wasn't a huge fan of season 1.

To be honest I hated it.

I love H. Jon Benjamin's voice acting though. He's perfect for animation and you can find about 4 or 5 different things he's in where he just lives those characters...

Great show. But like many shows that have been on the air for a long time it gets watered down a little. Would probably have been a better show if FOX didn't have other animated/spinoffs such as American Dad or The Cleveland Show and just solely focused on FG. FOX already had Simpsons and hell even Bob's Burger's which I've never seen (does anyone watch that show and/or/how is it even still on?)

I am surprised they killed of Brian though. Considering all the shit he's been through on that show and considering it's a cartoon you'd think he wouldn't die from just being ran over by a car (again considering it's a cartoon and all the shit he's through w/ Stewie etc). Him and Stewie had a great chemistry together.

Surprised it wasn't Meg, if they had prior plans to kill off a character. Obviously no one cares about her on the show, and ironically the viewers of the show don't care much about her character other than the fact that her voice over is Mila Kunis who'd we all love to fuck. And really, the show wouldn't really miss a beat without her. Losing Brian sucks...I mean who doesn't like a drunk talking pot smoking dog?

The best moments on the show are when Brian is behaving like an actual dog...scared of the vacuum, can't stand up in a car, etc.

Also, I've always felt like Seth Macfarland writes Brian as himself. He even seems to recognize just what his worst personal shortcomings are...he's pompous, he can fall in love with his own intelligence, he can't hear "Fox News" mentioned without going into a diatribe, etc. The episode where he asks Quagmire why he doesn't like him is the best episode they ever did.

Roger ruins American Dad for me... for some reason I just despise that character.

This is why getting into discussions about why any form of "art" is "better" than another is a direction of false resolution. Everyone has different tastes, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. =)

Bob's Burgers is my new Sunday Night favorite. American Dad has been great since the end of Season 4. I still watch family guy because every once in a while they hit it out of the park. South Park can be pretty awful sometimes. Usually the last episode of a season or before a break is horrible because of their short turn around time. They just want to get it over with and go on vacation. When they actually put in the effort, it is the best show on TV.

Here is my secret for watching The Simpsons since about Season 20:
Wait til summer, then go to TV.com and watch only the episodes that average an 8.0 rating or higher. You may only watch 7 or 8 episodes, but it is pretty quality stuff.


What about Archer? There doesnt seem to be a bad episode in the bunch and usually has me laugh throughout episodes.
