It's loud, obnoxious, terrible, offensive, stupid, cruel... Flagged

...and I fucking love all of it!

The first seasons were okay, sort of like a typical adult comedy, not really pushing any boundaries. But after season six and onwards, I started hearing people complain about it more and more. (Example: Just about every whiner in the reviews below this)

So, I decided to check it out, just out of curiosity, and now it's my favorite adult show, period.

Some of the gags are very funny to me, it's shock humor is done very well in my eye (probably because I'm not as squicked out to fictional violence as some others), the characters are distinct and very funny. Not to mention, after season 8, the cutaway gags just got better.

Honestly, it all feels like the show just got progressively grander, the animation seemed smoother and more HD, the comedy and slapstick got more wild, the Road To series in particular felt more like adventures.

Really, the only reason I assume this show got a lot of flack is from: 1. Mr. Enter and his blind followers who treat every little cruel joke as if it's the worst thing ever 2. People who honestly can't take a joke from an actual lesson or something meant to be serious (in which case, I'm pretty sure you shouldn't be watching comedies all together) 3. Rick and Morty/Bojack Horseman fans who think that adult shows need to have some intelligence and never heard of mindless fun. (and no, I'm not saying those shows are bad, at all)

Not every show has to be Rick and Morty or Bojack Horseman to be good in my eyes. As long as it's got some entertainment, even if it's just some classic, mindless, insane fun, it's all good in my book.

The only thing you like talking about more in this review besides yourself is how much better it would be if everyone shared your opinion and how it's the only logical choice.

@Bastard 1 Um, excuse me? \"talking about myself\"? And no, I never stated that my opinion was the only logical choice. I stated I believe some others are being illogical but I never stated it\'s either my way or the wrong way

^ I dunno, you kinda imply it when you call them \"illogical\"...

^ I mean \"illogical when I mean, taking it way to seriously\"

^^ No, no it isn\'t. I don\'t care what that video has to say. I still love this show. And nothing he could stay would stop me.

and why the hell is it flagged?

However, criticism is useful to make the show better. The writers should change the show\'s content into something beyond comprehension to redeem the show as a whole. No cutaways and other gags. The fans want complex characters, cohesive storylines and four-dimensional arcs. That\'s why Family Guy should change everything wrong with it in its current state.

The show\'s simplistic style is what gives it it\'s charm. Not every show has to be Rick and Morty to be good. Cutaways are the shows biggest staples, so it\'s clearly not getting rid of that, and it\'s clear people are still watching it and, it may just be a personal thing, but I watch it for the simple characters. That\'s what the show is to me. A simple entertainment and it doesn\'t need to try to go out to be anything more
