The new episodes of Family Guy are absolutely terrible. They're atrociously not funny. Despicable, really.

Seth MacFarlane has one sort of funny gag in the first couple of episodes and then repeats it to death. He also gets in the middle of a joke and doesn't know how to end it, so he comes up with a not funny line to get out of the cut scene.

This all started with the creation of American Dad, which is the exact same thing only less funny.

I'm adding Seth MacFarlane to Hamas' list of people who should kill themselves. Family Guy should have stayed cancelled if this was the pile of shit that was going to be produced.

That was a good movie. Full Metal jacket is where frazod got his avatar that he used to have for the longest time. Funny thing is that I watched it again recently. I didn't realize that the crazy dude is the guy who plays the main detective in Law and Order Criminal Intent.

Beavis and Butthead was ok but that's all we had at the time as far as "racy" or "edgy" shows really. Watch it now and it's not nearly as funny IMHO.

It's simple, really. Everyone's tastes and opinions are different. That's okay. Some like Family Guy. Some don't. I'll admit that I don't think it is as funny as those first 2 or 3 seasons in the late 90s to early 00s, but it still has some funny moments.

I didn't find that skit about the Chiefs all that funny, personally. But a lot of folks did. Doesn't mean I think they are all buffoons.
