This may just be a personal thing but I don't like the fact that there is no goddamn character development, there are almost never any episodes where the characters learn something worthwhile and keep it with them for the rest of the show and when there are episodes with emotions and feelings and the like, it never actually sticks, there are no consequences, there are no groundbreaking realizations, just back to the same old joking shit.

Look at Futurama, there are so many worthwhile plots in that show that actually makes viewers feel things and along with laugh, it is something that makes the characters reflect on their actions and what happened in that week's episode but doesn't ruin it with some dry ass joke. Luck of the Fry, Jurassic Bark, and Love and Rocket to name a few.

I really loved Family Guy, but season 6 and 7 was a bit retarded, just humour wasn't like in before seasons :l

I hated them the moment they turned to Kanye Twitty to fill in show time. It broke the flow of the episode and they did it multiple times.

It's so forgettable and frustratingly awful I don't even remember his name. I would have minded it if it was good music, and it only stuck around for like 30 seconds.

Yes, you generalized, and in a stupid way. Lots of people who don't like it are liberal or not conservative, not hipster, and don't let South Park do their thinking for them.

watching ed edd n eddie is very hipster

No, it's nostalgic.

Exactly, it wasn't like that in the early season until Seth MacFarlane decides to become a dick out his beliefs. Brian used to be a reasonable character until Seth went a bit too far on using him as his own spokesdog.

I think I've identified when the show started to turn. The Star Wars specials. The first one was made by Star Wars fans eager to cover the material. The second one more of an even mix of the two, for better or worse. The third one was made by people who have Star Wars set pieces imposed on them and then they just did Family Guy material. That's an act of ego.
Also I think the jabs at Seth Green were coming from a meaner place. Yes, ribbing is a thing between comics. They did it in the earlier specials that I liked. But this was just "You've been in nothing successful and you're a Jew."

I don't outright hate the show, but it tends to frequently employ all of the laziest and most tiresome forms of "humor" around: pop cultural references devoid of an actual joke, random graphic violence or scatology, "jokes" based entirely around shock or offense, callbacks to worn out running gags they've already done a thousand times, and worst of all, anti-humor that lets them get away with killing time by repeating the same thing over and over again or doing nothing at all (this would be fine if the show understood how to properly time a "rake joke," but they don't).

Also, the characters are all mean-spirited, vile people who hate each other, but unlike other sitcoms with similar character dynamics like Curb Your Enthusiasm or It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Family Guy tries to have its cake and eat it too by tossing in totally incongruous and unearned serious moments and "issue" episodes where we're supposed to care about these people, because Seth McFarlane has delusions of being the second coming of Norman Lear.

I know. I thought it would be an interesting idea to show Cleveland's family, but his son looks completely different than how he was in the show and he has a new wife. The only reason Cleveland's son looks different and he has a new family is because his new family resembles that of the Griffin family. What is the point in making a spinoff if the characters are just going to be like those from the source material?

And we did it in pretty much the same way.

Dude you and your friend are so mainstream now. You should like, be an original, man.

I liked the first two seasons when I was younger, but everything after that has always seemed pointlessly stupid to me. I find the humor completely unamusing and the characters loathsome.

I remember them calling attention to Brian's dickishness in an episode where he tries to figure out why Quagmire hates him so much and he eventually just blows up in his face and gives him the brutal truth.

The episodes where they try to be serious are admirable. It shows the writers aren't complete tards, just wish they would incorporate more of that.

It's uneven, though. They'll treat one issue completely seriously, then make light of something that's more serious.

I think it's written by different people. I'm not sure, but I think Seth only had a big part in the writing of the pilot and the other writers took over from there.

Either way, I don't care for American Dad. Family Guy has its moments, though.

Family Guy takes itself too seriously and uses too much filler now.
The cutaways used to be more like magazine cartoons that somewhat fit the scenario. Now they're interchangeable. I imagine they have a surplus of 200+ pre animated cutaway gags they mix with 1 or 2 original ones they made for the episode. Seth has gotten too preachy too. The lessons used to mock how bad sitcoms use stupid obvious lessons. Now it uses stupid obvious lessons seriously like a bad sitcom. It also gives mixed messages.
The episode I like to reference is the Thanksgiving one where Joe's son Kevin comes back. It's trying to be serious but then they make a joke when Kevin tells how he survoved that there was a bomb in a cake and a soldier wanted the bomb on his piece. It's this bad joke ruining any humor or sadness they tried to establish.
Overall it's trying too hard now.
Like the Simpsons.

The problem I have with Family Guy is that overall, the writing is poorly crafted. It has its funny moments, but since the jokes are almost entirely one-offs that don't actually relate to the plot of the episode, there's rarely a real "payoff" moment. They don't even have jokes that are set up early on and then delivered on later in the episode, each show just feels like a bunch of ideas for jokes that they animated, then strung together with a barely cohesive story.

Let's not forget the episode where Meg was abducted by sex traffickers. That's supposed to be a deadly serious topic, but Brian and Stewie make jokes every 5 minutes and don't take things seriously at all. It was a terrible episode and I refuse to watch it anymore.

We all know South Park > Family Guy.

Family Guy has had its moments, but the "humor" is often too random and out of place at times that it ruins the joke. It also has obvious political bias as opposed to South Park, which Stone and Parker use to ridicule the side that can't take a joke and tends to get extremely anal towards someone with opposing views (which currently describes liberals). Although South Park makes its writers' political views extremely obvious, it's coming from a middle-ground (the more logical) perspective on politics.

Basically, Family Guy has an agenda, South Park has an agenda to cause massive amounts of butthurt.
