    Is there a rule somewhere that says you have to be a moron to comment on streaming videos? It's not just youtube, google video and daily motion have equally inane posts.

    too much of a stretch for me. I'm sure I could find the same references in other television and movies that predates simpsons.

    The first two they compared had a lot in common but the rest were really different. I use to love he simpsons but now family guy has taken their place. I just lost intrest in the simpsons. Famil Guy is rude and offending and I love them for it. But Futurama is still better them both of them and if you don't agree you can "Bite my shiny metal ass!" hehe

    Kind of the opposite for me. I used to find Family Guy funny and the Simpsons were a chore to watch, but these past few seasons have really improved for the Simpsons, while Family Guy takes the dive.

    Futurama though... I really wish they'd bring that back.

    Totally agree. I've found Family Guy funny, even though I've always felt they tried WAY too hard and forced a lot of things. Still like it enough though. I LOVE Futurama. LOVE. And...

    ...I can't wait.

    Family Guy can be funy at times. I think they are best with the weird pop culture refs.

    Simpsons still is great IMO. But yeah I can see FG stealing jokes from Simpsons.

    I used to love The Simpsons, never missed an episode...but here lately, the shows have been kinda hit and miss with me. If the movie flops, I think that may be the signal of the end for Homer and crew.

    Family Guy on the other hand is much like The Simpsons used to be to me.
    I like every episode, often times the wife and I find ourselves laughing histarically at the show, and often times go around the house repeating the one-liners that we found to be down right funny

    Simpsons has been on so long and tackled enough stories that it's difficult for another series (particularly one that shares so many overarching themes) to not "borrow" an idea or two every so often.

    Personally, I don't watch either show. Simpsons was excellent in it's early seasons, but anything after Season 8 is too awful to waste time viewing and it's become a completely different series. Family Guy, I didn't mind when it was originally on, but after the return, the dragged out jokes got worse and they just didn't seem to be putting any effort into the writing any more.

    I think I’m starting to come around to D_C’s way of thinking about you tube threads.
