To correct your grammar for once, it's "Family guy has done an episode without cutscenes"
not
"Family guy has done n episode."

Conway Twitty - that scene lasted three whole minutes IIRC. That had to be the lowest point ever for FG. I wonder if anyone anywhere found it funny.


I think the whole point of FG is, you're not supposed to think about anything that's going on - you're supposed to just sit there and be amused by a bombardment of obscene stupidity, which, often times, I am. :(

I did, because I know how much it pisses people off. Makes me laugh every time.

I think I've seen that gag 3 seperate times, all the same singer.. one was only about a minute long though, but still gay.

kinda jumping in here ...

Family guy has always had its moments, and great episodes, but i always found there were too many moments where i would switch over to it and go "oh not this one" and look for something else. The same goes for American dad and cleveland is just dull.

His writing reminds me of the old school spoofs like 'airplane' and 'naked gun'

and that country and western song made me want to kill my tv

so you're saying that old school writing like naked gun and airplane is, bad? Hmmm.. I'll go ahead and VEHEMENTLY disagree with you on that one. Airplane, Naked Gun, Top Secret, Hot Shots, etc; they were all movies that allowed you to just relax and laugh. No shock value or indifferent parents, just silly sight gags that you never expect and some GREAT lines. "Is this some kind of bust?" "Well it's very impressive, yes".. rofl. It's different when Topper Harley (great satirical name) gets into the "are not" "are too" battle with cary elwes, or Frank Drebben calls Hapsburg Mr. Poopy Pants infront of his girlfriend (after saying we can handle things maturely) because these characters have been defined thus far as being normal people. They have their moments of zaniness, but then they go right back to being a normal person. The majority of the time they're doing things just as anyone would in the movie they're lampooning. I think you'd be closer to compare it to turds like Disaster Movie or Superhero Movie.. THOSE movies take EVERY scene from another movie and just put a slight spin on it to remind you of the scene from the other movie.. very similar to FG. But almost every Zucker Bros movie is a classic and basically the start of true cinematic comedy.

The biggest appeal to the original run of Family Guy was there was nothing else that zany on broadcast TV. The show exposed a broader audience to an Adult Swim type of comedy, if you will, with quick hitting jokes and delightfully obscure references. Also, it was buried in the same time slot as two of the most popular shows of the day for it's third season. And in the days before DVR and widespread internet downloads, Family Guy flew under the radar of most television viewers. So to be a fan of Family Guy "back in the day", meant you were part of an elite group that "got it" while the rest of the rubes were watching Joey and Chandler trade lame-one liners or Richard Hatch's fat naked ass.


There's more "good news" for all you Family Guy/Seth MacFarlane haters that you may not be aware of.

First of all, Seth will be producing a 4th animated series soon featuring a female lead voiced by Alex Borstein (Lois). The as yet untitled show will likely debut in 2011.

Secondly, the inter-webs are buzzing with rumors of a Family Guy movie off of a few interviews with Family Guy producers and voice actors. This would be a real, theatrical-released movie, not the direct-to-DVD 'movie' Family Guy roared back from hiatus with. At this point, we're not sure if this movie will happen. It took The Simpsons Movie over 4 years to go from internet rumor to reality and I think we're at a similar point with Family Guy.

Sorry to be the one to break this to you if you're a hater, but don't kill the messenger. ;)

Please, for the love of god, don't let it be another family show with talking animals. And please hire more voice actors. :cartmanko'd:

This will inevitably lead to the apocalypse.

At this point it sounds like it will be.

It will feature a 50-pound hamster with the personality of a gay sumo wrestler.

I've never seen an episode, but I have seem clips, so I just want to say that when I first heard about The Cleveland Show, I was dumbfounded. A background character on Family Guy who really don't get an assload of air time suddenly gets his own spin-off. I really questioned its potential success. I thought it would flop immediately, but it's still too soon to determine it's fate in as much as a year from now.

I personally don't think it was a good move.

I'll be honest, I like her, and am just a wee bit horny for her. I'm tired of the FG formula though.
