as for the take it or leave it option, well...... its time to get off the fence goddamnit. if you aint part of the solution, you are part of the problem, you know?

Brilliant FG moment I just watched - Quagmire fakes his own death (from the episode 'I Take Thee Quagmire') and right at the end a fake dinosaur comes to eat him, and Peter hums the theme tune to Jurrasic Park. Had me in stitches :lol:

I think I'd laugh at Peter Griffin singing the notes of any piece of music. He doesn't need to sing words/lyrics, it's funnier when he just sings the notes in that wonderfully nasal hum :D

Just watched this weeks Family guy ep.

Hardly a funny moment in it. And, what was with a 3 minute old pop song in there?

I thought they could have done better with the OJ Simpson content, hardly raised a titter.

A few seasons back... at the end of a FG episode... Peter said - "Ladies and Gentlemen... Mr Conway Twitty" and pretty mch the same 3 minute crooning occured - I think its a slighly less funny recurring joke than the chicken fights or Stewies "still woking on that novel?" bits.

I can only assume that Seth is a huge fan of Conway Twitty - but with a name like that how could anyone not be?!?

It wasnt very funny this week - I'm not sure how you can get away with that much personal slandering of OJ - regardless of whether its all true or not.

The only really funny bit was thye Back To The Future skit... in a sick kind of way!

Thankfully I watched it from my DVR, so I was able to fast forward thru the entire Conway Twitty shit.

And to me the funniest moment (and most shocking) was when the Juice knife two people and cut off a head and ran away laughing... :shock:

Seth McFarlane on the PTC when they complained last year:

Oh, yeah. That’s like getting hate mail from Hitler. They’re literally terrible human beings. I’ve read their newsletter, I’ve visited their website, and they’re just rotten to the core. For an organization that prides itself on Christian values - I mean, I’m an atheist, so what do I know? - they spend their entire day hating people. They can all suck my d**k as far as I’m concerned.

This weeks is probably the most concise I've seen of Family guy in a long time, and I'm surprised they got away with it.

Possibly the funniest joke is the quickest, Stewie with a banana.

I can't believe they digged at Fox and got away with it...and having Fred Savage in the show. My god, Savage is a genius, I loved 'The wizard', oh yeah, and the wonder years was a'ight

I'm sure they had strict guidelines with the amount of time that banana could spend in his mouth: it was like a nano-second. McFarland is getting very close to having Mr Slave show up for a stint.

The Star Trek TNG reunion was fucking priceless, Brian being outed as an atheist, and God riding on a hover skift wearing Flash Gordons gear had me in tears...

I agree, was really funny and it's been a while since FG (Family guy) has been consistently funny. The Star Trek side plot was brillaint, and I liked the way that it almost seemed to get missed until the very end of the ep, and it was awesome.

Shame, FG can be pretty hit and miss.

This weeks Steven King-based Family Guy was hilarious!

Its what a Treehouse Of Horror would be like if they were allowed to use rudeness!

The highlight of this episode is a joke that lasts about 1 second - I cant stop watching it - its soooo funny.... I'll just say 'Friends'.

Road to Multiverse was brilliant. Loads of silly jokes loosely tied together.

Really enjoy it. Well worth watching just to see the Disney version of Family Guy.

It's nice to see a return to the staple comedies, still keeping it fun.

If not, what are their current classifications? The rest are spot on.


I think this is one of those deals where the image shrinks itself depending on the size of the window, because Chris and Meg are still in the picture (technically speaking). Chris's classification is also "Retard" and Meg's is "Punching Bag."

It think it could've worked as a one-off. Or perhaps some short webisodes. As it is, the concept doesn't hold for a whole episode....and not a whole series.
