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

I think Family guy copied the "alcholic overweight mentally retarded father" persona from Simpsons.

Homer didn't always used to be stupid. They changed his character to appeal to simpletons.

If he is saying nope to that the creator of the Simpsons didn't made Futurama I will facepalm the hardest I ever will in my life.

I said Futurama didn't copy the Simpsons.

Also if you think creative direction for Futurama comes from Matt Groening you are an idiot.

The only thing Futurama has in common with the Simpsons is its art style

Futurama and simpsons have some pretty similar archetypes.
"Stupid but well-meaning man has a typically competent but sometimes.quirky female love interest."
That's one major simiarity right off the top of my head.

I concur.

I enjoyed the Big Bang Theory at first, not because I thought it was funny(It wasn't), but because it was a nod at Nerd/Geek culture. Unfortunately, as the show became more and more successful, it began turning into the average sitcom, eschewing the nod towards nerd/geek culture and embracing a HYPER AWESOME QUIRKY FUN caricature of it.

It failed completely when they added two new girls, one being the one you're thinking of, Mayim Bialik, a terrible actress playing a terrible character.
