    so one of my students asked me if I like family guy and I told him it's the worst show on tv and explained to him why

    his response was "no way it's so awesome" and I was like god damn it my efforts are futile

    Yet the Simpsons surprisingly had some pretty good jokes though. I miss when both of those shows were good.

    Last weeks episode had a few really funny bits but it was mostly garbage. The show has gone from fantastic to mildly disappointing to painful to watch. It had 4 stellar seasons which, which is more than most shows I guess, but save a few episodes in the last two years the show is pretty much shit.

    Futurama was the only related show that ended before it could get dragged through the mud, and they want to bring it back and fuck you all because it's going to suck like the return of Family Guy or the last 10 seasons of the Simpsons and then I'll cry because I was happy with it ending when it was so good.

    I agree. The worst Simpsons episodes are just boring not painful.

    That is the one thing that I think could survive a return. It was so well written, but this, this, they have run out of "edgy" shit. Now its either just cruel and mean or the same joke recycled over and over.

    Nah there was a lot of great episodes in seasons 2,3, and 4. But then season 5 was really weak and this season anything remotely amusing gets trumped by some old bit or musical number that goes on for way way too long.

    See that might have been funny if it they didn't do the whole god damn number. Not only is it painful but it's lazy on the part of the writers. Like when they did that entire "Shapoopie" song from The Music Man during the football episode.

    What made that funny for me, was our school doing The Music Man at the same time as that episode aired.
    We saw a truncated version, with a couple of songs, the day after that episode aired.
    They played "Shapoopie," and I just kept hearing Peter.

    Exactly. Futurama was awesome because it had writers that could tell a story.

    Family Guy's writers only have to srting one flackback gag to another.

    I guess that's what it is now. I was real optimistic after how awesome the 4th season really was but then I found out most of those episodes (and like all of the jokes) were written or at least pitched before cancellation. After finding that out, I am not too surprised at how the last two seasons have gone.

    When futurama first aired, I thought it was total shit. But I think I must've been too young to appreciate it. As now, I have revisited them and have fallen madly in love. I just bought the first season, and and about to get the second.

    I missed most of them as well and then became very discouraged when trying to catch up. If you haven't seen it and get the chance, Season 4 (volume 3) is definitely worth owning on DVD. I got Season 5 (volume 4) for Christmas and I couldn't even make it through the first disk it was so weak. It wasn't even annoying like this season is, it just wasn't funny.

    As for season 6 I will make sure that my next Christmas list says "PLEASE NO MORE FAMILY GUY" on the top and bottom of it.

    Does anyone here think Seth Green's other projects are still worth something besides Futurama?

    I know that he has also done Robot Chicken and ...umm...Robot Chicken.

    Yeah, Robot Chicken, whats your opinion guys? I like it, but I don't watch religiously.

    EDIT: PS Oh and thanks for the recommendation Butters.
