    years ago, i caught the comic strip every once in a while, and was interested in the show when it reached AS.
    at first, i was "meh", but now, i think the show is one of th most brilliant shows out there.
    as much as i like Family Guy, it has this thing where a stupid gag goes on tooo long and the jokes that are really biting are all too brief, for example.

    i love the speed or pacing of the show, i like the idea that all the episodes have a real lesson or two to be learned, and the influences on the show's creator and crew flow right into the work.

    well, as good as the show is, i have to buy the dvds and wait a few more years before i can share it with the kiddies because the N-bomb gets dropped as much as words like Bitch and ho and so forth.

    i applaud CN for having balls when Fox didn't and giving a gritty, urban comedy a shot.

    I never cared to watch it, but one time I had CN on in the background when it came on and then I was hooked.

    Got the DVD set for Christmas. Great friggin show.

    It was a great show. Along with Venture Bros it was one of the only shows that showed some quality and effort on AS.

    i had to baby sit for a friend and at their house, i used their DVR to record the episode about Grandad sneaking into the theater.
    the friend's wife works at our local movie theater.
    she loved it.
    gonna get the dvds soon.

    one other thing about the show- when it is on, i don't do anything else. i was trying to eat one night during the episode where granddad had to give a eulogy in order to get something from a will... at the end when the box was opened and it was a jar of nuts...and the dead guy on the video said, " and what you get? these nuts, n--a!" and was laughing his ass off; i almost spewed baloney sandwich at that. awesome.

    I need to get the second season on DVD. Missed like half of it for some reason or another. It looked just good as the first, if not better.

    Stinkmeaner Strikes Back. I laughed so hard at this episode. One of their greatest IMO.
