Do people mean it when they say they only like the first seasons of Family Guy?

That's like me saying I only enjoyed the first seasons of The Big Bang Theory.

I like Family Guy but there are only a couple episodes from the first season that I can even watch.

Yes, there are people with a sense of humor, Dobagoh.

No, you mean there are idiots with a "sense of humor".

The original seasons of Family Guy were actually very good for when they were released... but the fact that it became so successful and mainstream makes them seem played out, lame, predictable now.

The thing is, originally, Family Guy was meant to be a subversion of typical cartoon family tropes, taking twists and turns with stories that were, at the time, completely unexpected. This doesn't really work when the twists become the mainstream.

Unlike South Park which was just toilet humor with awful production values across the board(Nothing has changed on that front), Family Guy, on release, was a labor of love of some individuals who clearly put in a great deal of effort into their work.

For the record;
I don't watch, or enjoy, Family Guy, but I would enjoy South Park(I.e. garbage) even less.

you don't get satire if you think south park is only toilet humour...

South Park is nowhere near as funny as it was season 8 and earlier.

Satire is great, but Matt and Trey used to be so much better at executing it.

yar, south park, behind the crude humor and art style, has some amazing analogy and social satire.
