I know that sounds a bit bold, but hear me out.
When Family Guy first started, its first few seasons were just kind of...meh. Not great, not terrible, had a few funny moments, and even some of the cutaways were humorous. The characters were a bit generic (I can see where the "Simpsons rip-off" accusations came from, even though I never really thought they were fair), but the show was starting off, too, so I expected them fleshed out later on. After a while, though...it just got BAD. The cutaways became more frequent and pointless, the plots became a bore, and the whole show seemed to get more focused on just trying to piss people off than actually trying to be funny. And that's a big problem I have with Western adult cartoons in general. I don't mind a little cruelty or shock humor if it's amounting to something, but Family Guy just has it for the sake of it. Not to mention that whatever characters aren't flat, one-note tokens are horrible assholes (Peter, Lois, Brian, etc.) that I don't even know why I should care about. I like shows like Futurama, Rick and Morty, and Bojack Horseman because they're funny (and don't waste time on cutaways), but I can also like and care about their characters and what they go through. Shows like that should set an example for adult cartoons, not Family Guy.
This review right here is why I don\'t take critics seriously. It\'s a show with shock humor, calm the fuck down. Also, not every adult show has to be Rick and Morty to be good. You people act like mindless entertainment is just the end of the world
