    Is Family Guy going too far?

    Advertisements



    Last Sunday's episode with Stewie beating the crap out of Brian had me a bit worried that maybe Family Guy might be pushing the envelope too much. Sure, it was downright hilarious.. the glass over the head, the beating with the towel rack, drowning him in the toilet bowl, hitting him with a golf club, shooting him in the knee caps.. but maybe the torching went a bit too far?

    I thought so too, but it's not the first time the show's gone "too far". How about when the dog (Brian) had an affair with the mother (Lois) and then broke up with her. Followed by Lois saying she was just a few days away from having sex with him..and then the dog went to masturbate..lol.

    Agreed. I remember a time when the Simpsons was once good, but that time is no more. It is no longer on the cutting edge, and because of **** Simpson's character, the show is a little too preachy and infused with a moral message. Simpsons pioneered adult cartoons but no longer fits in that genre.

    Yea. If you look into the Simpson's every single episode has something to do with religion, generally christianity....some you have to look a little further. Family guy..the going too far is just their style. They do these cut scenes that normally wouldn't be that funny but it's the fact that it is so drawn out that makes it funny. There was also a reason it was cancelled the first time, but with the repeats on adultswim, along with the dvds it kind of got forced to be reborn. I kind of agree with the Simpson's not being as funny as the old ones...but they've been on so frickin long you can only talk about so much stuff. South Park (once you get over the crude stuff that only middle schoolers enjoy) is surprisingly witty to me...and the turn around rate for an episode is insanley fast compared to when the event happened...They had an episode about Osama something like 3 weeks after 9/11, which in the cartoon world is nuts. And, if you have ADD like me, Aqua Teen is good. American Dad...not so much but oh well.
