    That animatic was not really funny at all. I still have high hopes for the show, maybe it will make it past 3 seasons before fox cans it.

    And how did you get to see the pilot?[​IMG] (jealous rage!)

    Interview with Seth MacFarlane

    In the interview he mentions some projects he's working on, such as a new Family Guy CD and best of DVD.

    Did anyone notice the edits made to the Family Guy episodes on Wednesday? In "Road to Europe" they blurred out parts of the nudists and dubbed out the word "dump".

    Do they all have to be family shows? I kinda liked how Futurama was different for this reason.

    This new show is less-funny than "Family Guy"? I didn't think that was possible.


    Well, considering how "Family Guy" is a ripoff of "The Simpsons", it's not surprising that this new show is just a "Family Guy" re-tread.

    I'm just amazed that Seth MacFarlane's new show isn't a thinly-veiled "Futurama" ripoff. I can see it now: "Seth MacFarlane's Future-A-Go-Go" featuring a guy frozen for two thousand years this time.

    A Family Guy CD? Oh, be still my beating heart?

    When is it coming, and what are the contents.

    And Bill, if you can't say something nice, talk about recent "Simpsons" episodes or UPN shows.

    Forget the CD: "a direct-to-video movie" [​IMG]

    I wasn't aware that The Simpsons was the first show ever on TV that was about a family.

    Yes! There were a ton of edits made to the original episodes (I have the DVD's). I was quite saddened to say the least. I am a huge Family Guy fan, but I fear that the new series might be toned down thanks to the renewed interest in programming content on TV. [​IMG]

    Seriously? A fat, stupid father, a down to earth mother, a brother and sister roughly the same age, a baby and a dog?

    Yes, the baby and dog on both shows are so comparable.

    I didn't realise TV shows were such artistic endeavors that any similarity between two of them prevents people from enjoying one or both. I guess I'll just have to continue remember how funny Simpsons used to be and going back to my Family Guy discs for the laughs.

    The few minutes of the American Dad pilot I saw were OK but the talking fish freaked me out. It's a good gag but I could see it wearing thin.

    A talking fish AND an alien living with the family (hey at least they're branching out - now they're ripping off ALF too! [​IMG]) is just too much. The rest of the 5-minute mini-pilot I saw wasn't very funny either, with the exception of the toaster thing which made me laugh out loud. [​IMG]
