After suffering for months, I feel compelled to state for the record: Family Guy sucks! I’ve watched the show for a number of years; it’s been on our auto-DVR list forever. Now I am taking it off that list, because it is just unwatchable.
I’m not sure when Family Guy turned rancid. Right now, however, it just seems like the show is just a lot of crappy anti-gay humor and gross-out activity, with very little creativity. I couldn’t even finish the most recent episode I saw, which featured Brian and Stewie locked in a bank vault, Brian eating the poop from Stewie’s diaper, Brian eating Stewie’s vomit, the two of them getting drunk, etc. Does anyone actually think this stuff is funny? Do the writers’ meetings for this show just involve people trying to one-up each other in coming up with disgusting behavior?
I admit that I actually find some gross humor to be funny. I thought the Family Guy episode where Brian, Stewie, Chris, and Peter drink ipecac and have a vomit contest was hysterical. The tone of the show has changed for the worse since then, however; it is harsh, mean, and totally off-putting. It’s time to send Family Guy to the glue factory.
