I respected South Park creators Parker and Stone at one time, but after the cheap shots at Family Guy in Cartoon Wars I can't stand them or their shows. I became a casual viewer of said series and have had a straight face with every episode they made since. Suddenly comedy isn't about jokes any more it's about plots Family Guy fails with thembecause it isn't South Parks brandof storytelling or humour and now South Parksis 'deep' and 'situated on the issues it tackles all of which isrelevant to the plot'.Yeah killing Kenny every episode sure was relevent to the plot as were the side stories featuring Jimbo and Ned, Mr Garrison and so on.
The fans are worse on Youtube, TV.com and othersitesyou get SP fans going "FG appeals to degenerate retards andthirteen year old morons" this is the people the shows molded? individuals who devalue other human beings for their tastes? nice going South Park. Writers of other shows like King of the Hill and The Simpsons, the hasbeen behind Ren and Stimpy all praised Cartoon Wars, the same people who have angered fans of said shows by detracting from the humour, thats some endorsement guys.
I know Cartoon Wars is four years old but they still went there. The FG writers on the other hand have been good sports they just laughed, they now refer to their gags as manatee gags and Seth Macfarlane was awesome in his 2006 Harvard speech.
Family Guy is no means perfect it's evolved over the years, only casual ignorent observers dare say it's all random cutaways and flashbacks now but at least it's still funny.
