In the end it doesn't matter, cuz Futurama is the shit. They have the perfect balance of pop culture references, political jokes, fart jokes, slapstick, and subtle dialogue humor that half the time you don't even notice the first time you watch.



^^^I'm just going to make a few edits and plagiarize this for my own use. Thank you.
LOL nice. I think South Park is better than both American Dad and Family Guy, so I agree with most of what you said. I still think American Dad has cliche and simple minded political jokes. South Park is much deeper, and makes you think alot more. But I still like and watch American Dad whenever it's on.

And Judoka, Scrubs is the best non-cartoon show on TV no doubt. But you can't compare it to cartoons. Cartoons are always better, cuz they're cartoons.

IMHO, the only cartoon that hasn't ******* sold out when they has gotten popular and have found a formula that the producers think would be most appealing to all people is ******* King of the Hill. I watched Family Guy this past Sunday, couldn't keep it on for more than 10 minutes...I ******* dare you to try to find a reference I wouldn't get. It seems at this point, they are trying waaayyyy tooooooo harrrrdddddddd. Yeah people saying shit that you wouldn't normally expect them to say is ******* great but honestly, there is no satire in this show. Little ******* kids laugh because even when they don't get the reference, it's because it's something ******* silly. American Dad, on the other hand, still has some integrity. I got scared when I thought they were going into a "remember the time" or "it's just like someone did something" joke but they didn't need the ******* animation for it...either you got it or whatever.

The Simpsons...I don't even know anymore, to be honest, I haven't watched in a bit, but it just wasn't like it used to be in the first couple of seasons....yeah Bart's a badass, Homer's stupid, etcetc.......but the storylines got way too ******* obscure to the point where they didn't make sense and it seemed like they were trying too hard.

King of the Hill, on other hand, never ******* sold out, never ******* showed what the audience just wanted to see, them folk had ******* character. You ******* felt for Dale at the same time you loved him. He was funny and goofy as shit but you felt bad because Nancy was cheating on him.


/drunk rant done.

completely agree, Family Guy just tries too hard its annoying, I try to watch it when theres nothing else on but when Peter shows up I just naturally end up flipping the channel

I like most of those cartoons that are on fox and im a big Southpark fan (the ghose hunters episode the other night was FN hilarious). However, my taste in humor might not be the best in the world, i think the campfire scene from Blazing Saddles is one of the funniest things in the world.

Wow you guys are bad at discussing and have pretty childish tastes.


Name one American Dad episode that won some kind of award for it's political edge? Or any episode with any specific point even?


People who think Family Guy is "dumb" or only has fart jokes are inept and blind. See my previous post for all the accolades, awards, and reviews. American Dad is so clearly for people who subscribe to only generic political views, who only comprehend or recognize the far extremes of political stereotypes - and can't recognize specific political topics.


Futurama is definitely good, it has more of a theme than Family guy so it's not quite as topical, but it's 100x better than American Dad and just as funny as Family Guy.

The humour in The Simpsons lacks the subtlety it once had, and is much less effective as a result.
