I could never get into it
27 April 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

There are people who love this show, fair enough. I am not saying you are stupid for liking Family Guy, for that would make me very heartless, but I am really sorry, but I could never get into the show. Don't get me wrong I love animation, I grew up on animated shows from the 80s and 90s, I still watch Disney and I love The Simpsons(before it jumped the shark that is) and Futurama, because they were fun and original. The first thing I don't like about Family Guy is that it is neither funny or original. Some of the plot lines are recycled from some of the weaker plot lines from the Simpsons, and the jokes here range from unfunny to inappropriate and also are repeated to the point of boredom, flashbacks that are just as repetitive and to top it off pop culture references that just don't work. Instead of raising an eyebrow or laughing until my sides were sore, I found myself wincing. Maybe it is because I am not into this kind of humour,and sometimes Family Guy overdoes the controversial side of things so much that even that gets tiresome. Peter I think replaces Homer as the stupidest dad on animated show television, he can't do anything right, he is slow and obnoxious and he loves television and beer(sound familiar?). Also his antics are unfunny and predictable. Lois is really shallow and dull and a mother figure that I can't really relate to, Meg like Lois is dull, Chris has his moments but is almost as obnoxious and as unlikeable as Peter. In fact the only likable characters are Stewie and Brian, but Stewie often has motives that are really quite absurd. The musical numbers in my opinion are okay at best, lifeless at worst, very often they are nothing to rave about. The only redeeming qualities for me really other than Stewie and Brian are the wonderful, detailed animation and various vocal performances with Seth McFarlane being the best. Overall though, I don't like it, I just can't get into it. 2/10 Bethany Cox
