    OKay i can now safely say i prefer american dad over family guy.

    WHen i first started this thread i hadn't watched a single episode of AD, but after doing so i feel that it's better than FG even though FG has like 7 seasons vs 4 seasons of AD.


    Firstly this is not very fair to family guy but the lead character in american dad is like a caricature of the ideal republican american, it's easier to make jokes out of that. Next since he works as a secert agent in the CIA the writes are able to create more scenerios with more interesting stories compared to FG. Stan is not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed but he's definitely smarter than Peter hence he is able to mouth off pretty smart retorts that would fly over Pete's head.


    FG makes too many references to outside events not related to their characters. For eg if someone says this guy is less crazy than tom cruise it cuts to tom cruise, this person is fatter than oprah it cuts to oprah, this person looks more dikish than ellen it cuts to her. AD makes outside references but they still feature all the main characters.

    Not their wives. I feel the blond wife of stan is more interesting than pete's wife. She's supposed to be dumb, while i guess pete's wife is something like a counter balance to pete. She's actually pretty bland.

    Out of the 3 offspring of Pete, only the baby has the most lines since he's the most intelligent and interesting. The other 2 are less featured since they are pretty dull. In AD both children have the same amount of screen time with the main character. The only character that seems to have less is the talking fish which is pretty interesting.


    LAstly the funniest character in my opinion in AD is the alien. He's a drunkard, foul mouthed self centred and has homosexual tendencies and he likes to cross dress and act as a woman to seduce men. Since he's not from this planet they are able to make him deviate from what normal earthlings do. Like if he starts acting nice he actually grows old and will die. The talking dog in family guy is boring compared to the alien roger.


    Hopefully american dad replaces FG rather than be the spin off series.

    PS who's the italian, hispanic dude that says goodbye at almost the end of every episode of AD?

    Why do u say so? I gave my reasons why AD is better than FG.

    Now contrast roger the alien with brian the talking dog.


    The joke with brian is that he's a dog behaving like an intelligent well-spoken human even smarter than Peter. The joke gets boring pretty fast cos Brian is rather mild mannered and behaves normally. The only outlandish thing about him is that he's a dog.

    Roger is intelligent too since he has many lines full of puns and sarcastic remarks plus he has many character flaws. Being self centered, drinks alcohol, treats the family he lives in shabbily, disguises as a woman when he's potrayed as a male assuming he's a male since he has a male voice. Yet since he's an alien the writers can think up anything and it wouldn't be too outlandish. Like let's say for eg they reveal Roger is asexual or has both sexual organs and it's not even a stretch since he's not from this planet.

    South Park is usually the cleverest, Simpsons is my favorite, Family Guy occasionally makes me laugh but is usually just annoyingly retarded.

    I quite liked the South Park where they went to the family guy studio and found out that the family guy writers are these manitees floating in a tank that just select random context/famous person/pop culture reference balls. Explained a lot

    Simpsons tries too hard sometimes, it shouldn't try to emulate other shows just stick to what worked. Family guy recycles alot of jokes and just replaces the subjects. Southpark for some reason I could never get into, I think it has to do with me not liking snow or spastic kids. I'd have to go with family guy though cause it just keeps the jokes coming and some of them are genuinely funny, and I like how they poke fun at famous supposedly "untouchable" people.

    Oh one I saw the other day that had me rofl'ing was squidbillies. That was some funny show right ther.

    Southpark for me!

    Although my favorite television show would have to be Home Movies(shame no more episodes) The humor is intelligent and mostly improv.

    Coach mcgurk has to be the funniest character in all of cartoons.
