Three words: Ex Act Ly! Try to find another show older than 20 years that still comes with new ideas (except Dr Who, which is even better). But still, the upcoming crossover between Family Guy and The Simpsons seem very already interesting (by that I mean wondering if the Family Guy authors will screw this one up or not).
I lost interest in both shows along time ago. I'll watch the simpsons if I have nothing else to watch but thats a rare time. plus I heard some people say that the show should take a break for a while. just so they can write better stuff and I'm willing to agree.
Peter's a reckless abusive sorry excuse for a father, Lois is a hypocritical bitch, Chris is just loud and obnoxious, Stewie's seemed to have lost interest in world domination, Brian is kind of pretentious (and this is coming from somebody who's a Brian fan) and Meg's become the butt monkey and willing to martyr herself to become the family's punching bag to keep it from falling apart. This is why I prefer the pre-season 6 series.
