Family Guy is the Carlos Mencia of cartoons about dysfunctional families.
|Caminante Nocturno - 2007-05-29 |
In Family Guy's defense, this is all a bunch of cartoon nerd faggotry and nobody should take it seriously.
I guess the universe was going to collapse in on itself eventually, I just didn't think YOU accusing OTHER PEOPLE of "cartoon nerd faggotry" would be the reason
Hey man, Card Captor isn't a cartoon, it's a way of life.

I wanna give -1 for the ending, but I dislike Family Guy a lot.
|Rodents of Unusual Size - 2007-05-29 |
Yeah, but plagarism is an honor thing. The writers should feel shame but they don't. That aside, I literally feel revulsion when people say "I love Family Guy! Family Guy is sooo funny!"
|Blackbetta - 2007-05-29 |
Most of them, they didn't even try to be original.
|Pandatronic - 2007-05-30 |
Meh, half of these are sitcom cliches to begin with.
|kiint - 2007-05-30 |
this is like comparing Damien Hirst to Jeff Koons

Weirdly, last time I saw American Dad it was a better Simpsons copy than either of these shows.
It was a better Simpsons copy than the Simpsons themselves?
Yeah, that last episode of American Dad had one single storyline and one minor subplot and it followed both with very little deviation right up to the denouement. Simpsons hasn't pulled that off since I was in high school.

if the simpsons movie is shite, then i'm writing off the entire show. they'll never have existed to me.
I'm sure THAT will upset the Simpsons writers/producers.
|EvilHomer - 2007-05-30 |
SIMPSONS ALREADY DID IT! -1 point because I like Family Guy, dammit.
|Xenocide - 2007-05-30 |
A couple are a bit of a stretch (the child services bit and the car insurance) but some are really blatant, especially the racetrack dogs. Anyway, five stars because Seth Mcfarlane still tries to convince people that his show isn't inspired by the Simpsons in any way.
|StanleyPain - 2007-05-30 |
So, a show that was a complete rip-off of the Simpsons to begin with is ripping off the Simpsons?
|j lzrd / swift idiot - 2007-05-30 |
What Caminante said.
|SDAusmus - 2007-05-30 |
Aren't both shows ripping off "The Flintstones"?
Yeah, well, The Flintstones was just ripping off The Honeymooners.
CONCLUSION: Everything rips off everything.
|zatojones - 2007-05-30 |
I like both shows
|Feyd - 2007-05-30 |
Yikes, a few of these aren't just close, they're dead-on.
|Maxville - 2007-05-30 |
If it weren't for cartoon plagarism we wouldn't have anime. Boo plagarism!
|Cube - 2007-05-30 |
I like both shows.
|mr666 - 2007-05-30 |
Heck, I like Family Guy, but I can admit it "reuses" a bunch of Simpsons ideas/jokes.
|Aubrey McFate - 2007-05-31 |
Family Guy is the Dane Cook of television shows.
|Zarathustra00 - 2007-07-22 |
The South Park two-parter making fun of how the Family Guy writers come up with material was dead on. Family Guy and about the last 10 seasons of the Simpsons are made for people who don't have any kind of attention span.
Also: for anyone who liked early Simpsons and doesn't already know, try Futurama.
|FABIO2 - 2007-10-12 |
The "Simpsons did it!" defense only works if you try to improve upon or do something new with an old gag. Family Guy fails utterly.
