WMG / Allen Gregory

Go To

The show is anti-gay propaganda.
Richard is deliberately written as the scummiest person on television to make the viewers think all gay people are like this.
  • The fact that Jeremy who is a decent person and could have served as a counter point to this is actually straight. Not only that but he was coerced into a gay marriage. This is either deliberately hateful or completely oblivious, though that is true of the show at large.

If the show had continued, it would be about Richard and/or Allen redeeming themselves or suffering Laser-Guided Karma.
That's the only reason I could think of why someone would intentionally write characters that awful.

The entire show was a Springtime for Hitler ploy that was intentionally awful.
And you all fell for it.

Allen Gregory was a warning.
Its writers never intended the show to be successful, because that wasn't the point behind the show. They became sick of the trend affecting sit-com shows; humor too dark to enjoy, poor morality lessons and characters being hated because the Sadist Show humor made them unsympathetic. Allen Gregory exists to show what over-use of these tropes in animated sitcoms could lead to-one of the most hated shows ever conceived. Basically, the show was a warning to what the current trends in adult sitcoms may lead to if they aren't controlled. Unfortunately it was good enough at this people thought they were serious.

How well does it match the trope?
