    I like how Trap-Jaw, Optimus Prime, Destro, and a Carebear made it to the land deal table.

    I find that show almost painful to watch now. Loved it on its first stint, now it just seems to regurgitate the same jokes over and over.

    The show has lost its luster a little bit after the South Park about how Family Guy comes up with their jokes by having manatee's pick balls with words on them to form jokes.

    That was 24k comedy gold. "...and the CareBear is a CareBear".

    I actually think that this season of FG has been pretty good.

    Wish they would stop regurgitating the 'Bird is the Word' bit, it was really funny for one episode, but has become really stale.

    Other than that, great show.

    I'm starting to feel the same way. Once upon a time, Family Guy was fresh and original, but it's been slipping. The show spends way too much time making fun of itself, by returning to the same gags again and again.

    They killed off Loretta (during The Cleveland Show) by using the "Peter destroys their house while someone's in the bathtub" bit.

    hmm. And does anyone really think that the bathtub gag has ever been particularly funny? I certainly don't.

    I feel the same way. I haven't found the show funny for about 4 years now. I'll still watch the first stint of episodes when they're replayed on Adult Swim.

    This. I watch the new episodes on Hulu, but I rarely watch the syndicated episodes anymore. I do enjoy the Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back parodies a great deal, however, and will rewatch them, but the majority of the episodes just haven't aged that well.

    Futurama is already coming back. Comedy Central, this June. Can't wait!!! There's a show that has aged very well. The episodes are still fresh and funny.

    I'll watch it if it's on, as it's good background fodder. Occasional laughs, and enjoyable, but it's not even close to shows like South Park and Always Sunny. I never go out of my way to watch it, or catch new episodes, but I don't hate it either.
