    Sounds good. They could make it even more over-the-top then it was.

    I don't know... it would be like the South Park movie. The show has charms because of the "I can't believe they said that" factor. I love the South Park movie, but that's because they did something different that WORKED. But they also had the groundwork laid for that, with several songs in the regular show.

    But I'll wait for the movie, since I love Family guy. We'll see!

    Awesome!

    And by the way, I've almost got Chris' voice (Seth Green) down.

    Fantastic!

    Stewie: IDIOT! Freeze it, then CUT it! And if you ever question my authority again, I shall give you diaper duty! And believe me, I will not make it easy on you.

    Yes it's a shame that that show was replaced by a show about f***ing puppets.

    Fantastic News! I've always liked the show ever since it was on FOX, and now that it has a good schedule on CN I'm just digging the show.

    Bring on the movie!

    I'm digging the news, and will definitely watch/buy anything Family Guy, but I think it would be cooler to do a straight-to-DVD "season" than a movie. I love the show, but I think part of the reason it's so good is because the ~22 minute show lengths keep it fresh and allow it to go all over the place in terms of subject matter and humor. Some of the lesser episodes do seem to drag on, and I'm not sure how well the format/style would translate to a movie-length installment. Now that the show has found some real popularity in it's afterlife on DVD (and TBS/Cartoon Central reruns), and has proven to be quite lucrative, a resurrection in season format could continue the show on even past "just one more DVD release," and be even more vindication for the people involved. I think a lot of people are just now getting actually exposed to the show for the first time recently, and enjoying it immensely (yes, I'll admit, I never saw Family Guy until I blind bought Vol. 1 on DVD from all the recommendations I'd been hearing).

    That's just my take though [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I been having the same qualms myself ryan because family guy tackled so many issues that if you do a movie, your limited to only one but I have faith in the crew of Family Guy. This is proberly one of the only DTV releases I'm excited for because usually DTV release is a sequal to a movie and so it has a lot smaller budget but with this release it like a step up [​IMG]

    I wouldn't say issues but what I more or less meant is that when it had an episode about death or anything else it was a variety of things. If they do a movie it's and 1-2 hours of just one topic.
