Family Guy lost me when they had Peter's wife dressed in a certain costume for Halloween. When asked who she was she said something to the effect "I'm the guy Laura Bush killed in a car accident." Then Peter said something like "Laura Bush killed a guy." Then they all took a turn saying it. I thought to myself, this guy, the creator of this cartoon is one mean spirited liberal. Then on second thought I realized that the only difference between him and other staunch liberals is that he has a mouth piece. Family Guy? No thanks. Maybe when they start making fun of Obama the way the did Bush I'll start watching it again. But I won't hold my breath on that one.
First question, have you watched Family Guy though the years? If you have you are aware that it's not ME that's turning things into a political debate, it's Seth McFarland who is a very staunch liberal. And while through the years he's taken a few wacks at Bill Clinton over all it's been about 10-1 pro democrats. Try to figure out what's going on before you post next time. It's okay to be wrong, but you are so far off the mark here you look silly.
I gotta go with ZEB on this one. I love the show, but I do get sick of all the liberal agenda pontificating during some of the more topical episodes, especially the preaching that Brian the dog carries on with. Some of the commentary is overtly political and clearly takes a stance on certain issues. When I find myself in disagreement with these well-defined points of view, it turns me off some and it isn't because I turn everything into a politically-framed debate. The show forces these sorts of reactions on to some of their viewers.
Some of their blatantly pro-left wing agenda stances are entertaining because I agree with some of the assertions being made, but they're just telling me what I want to hear. Other times, I totally disagree because they are not telling me what I want to hear. I see this sort of thing from the conservative media/entertainment industry as well though, so it's not a symptom of liberalism by itself.
I'm with skaz on this one. It's a freaking cartoon!! If even the archetype for neo-conservatism The Rushman himself can take a step back, say "I had a lot of fun doing this and I think it's absolutely hilarious" then why draw a line in the sand there as he put it? It's not the place. I agree with DBCooper, the dead left slant of it bothers me a lot sometimes, and there are some jokes and episodes that straight up turn me off. But the bottom line is it's funny, it's enjoyable, it's witty, and I like it.
You can't turn everything into a political battle, you'll go insane.
