    i've started to noticed this, but if you havent seen it in a long time, its ok again.
    serious too much FG is bad., i couldnt even watch the whole StuwieGriffin movie,

    BUT

    In thier new epiisodes they are starting to introduce the re-introducing or having re-occuring characters, much like The Simpsons and thier classic characters. This new concept for family guy is i think refreshing and its a good thing for the time being.

    Yeah it has been getting alittle dumb. I think the producer is trying to hard to make it funny. I did like it the way it was. Of course almost any show starts out good then begins to get bad.

    Family Guy was good the first time it was on, before it got the boot, but ever since Fox brought it back it just hasn't been funny. Of the new ones I've seen, they've almost all had some sort of cheesy musical number that drags on far longer than it should. It's simply trying to waste time because their scripts are lacking.

    Another thing, Seth MacFarlane can only do a maximum of like 4 voices, and they all sound the same, so it gets tiring hearing him try to do a different character with the exact same voice. Like, it would be far better if he used his real voice rather than trying to do fake voices which sound exactly alike.
    South Park does the same thing (Trey Parker and Matt Stone do many of the voices), but they do it in an honest way where the no-name characters are Trey and Matt using their real voice, so it's not like their trying to force you to laugh because the voice is 'funny.' (I find)

    When Family Guy first came on air, it was fairly risque for adult cartoons at the time. However, during Family Guy's off-air time, adult cartoon shows have taken off like wildfire, so Family Guy isn't new anymore, yet they're still trying to play with the same deck of cards they had before. Also, the 'homages' and 'parodies' that Family Guy used to throw in have simply become direct translations. For instance, in the Stewie Movie, they try to parody 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off' at the end (where Stewie is running to the music). But it's not a parody, because they don't make fun of, or add a twist. They literally copied the scene straight from the movie, and expect us to laugh because we know of Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Or, when the old guy is fighting the tree like Gandalf from Lord of the Rings.....they don't add any sort of twist, they just used the scene where both are falling into a cavern, and they dragged it on far longer than needed, so any comical timing was lost.

    I guess to finish this up, I'll just say that it seems like Family Guy comes up with a punchline, then tries to develop a scene for the punchline. I mean...each scene in family guy is almost seperate from one another, they just try and run a gag through then on to next scene. South Park is faaaar better and far superior to Family Guy, as no matter how ludicrous the episode gets, they always tie it in somehow at the end, so that the comedy, and the show is flowing, and you know they spent time on the script (well, for most episodes anyways hehe)

    Many Thanks To SasuraiHell For The Sig!

    Seth does use his regular voice for brian

    FG isn't as funny as it used to be, but it is far better than the simpsons, but not as good as south park

    I really don't know that is not funny to me. I agree that show can go too far. At first the dvd set had bleeps all the way. I bought the new one that came out a few months ago,and it has some episodes bleeped.
