From what I saw of Robot Chicken, its not that funny at all.
Really? I love it. W/e, replace robot chicken with some other funny thing thats just random jokes. Shit, anything Mitch Hedberg in it.
Seems like just another show started by some dudes in their late 20s trying to cater to a young "hip" audience of teens.
Really? Seems to random and with too many refferences that are meant for adult to fit that bill, IMO
But shit there was that clip on Conan O'Brian before the show started, where it was "the most unfair fights", that was awesome. I don't remember it to well but it really made me want to watch the show.
And when I did I was sorta dissapointed.
Did you tune in lately? I havn't tuned in lately, maybe it is teh suck. But yeah, theres been a lot of better ones then Most Unfair fights, but that was a great one.
Family offers a little support for the jokes.
A random guy walking into a bar and fighting over cocktail weiners with Dolly Parton
A guy with a history ( Peter, Brian, Stewie, whatever ) doing it.
When the first takes 30 seconds, and the second takes 30 seconds but is preceded by 10 minutes of pointless storyline advancement.
Despite what everyone says, the little support the cast of characters bring to the show helps make the jokes better.
I say make it all about the episode story line, like Seth does in American Dad, or don't have a storyline episode at all, like Robot Chicken.
The famous chicken fight scene was funny BECAUSE it was extremely long and in the middle of a show.
Yes, I agree. But that's the KEY: the fact that it has nothing to do with the story actually makes it FUNNIER. That's not how it is when you see something like
"Lewis: Blah blah blah, story development about fued between you and my daddy
Peter: blah blah blah I'm fat as all hell
Dog: Blah blah blah, random mention of some obscure 12th century writer who only published 1 book which only sold 30 copies
Peter: HOLY SHIT, THIS REMINDS ME OF THE TIME I BUTTFUCKED ELION GUNZALLES!
*60 second flashback of Peter mollesting Elion*
Peter: HOLY SHIT! BET YOU DIDN'T EXPECT THAT! WE WHERE TALKING ABOUT SOMETHING TOTALLY DIFFERENT, THEN BAM, THIS!"
They're all funny in their way, but there's no denying that writing Family Guy is MUCH MUCH easier.
And shittier. It's a shame too: the real early family guys, who used to use Flashbacks and Refferenced to relative things, where quite funny.
