The show's been getting trashed in this thread even before you put your taylor swift limited edition stamp of approval on it, no need to make matters worse.


I think the show was much better in the first three seasons, but it will still have random hilarious scenes in it here and there, it's just no longer must see tv.

And I agree, Simpsons in its prime, and South Park in its entirety, blow the family guy manatee out of the water

I'm not a fan. Mostly because of all the fanboys who swear it's the funniest thing ever and do everything but threaten violence to get me to watch it.

It's the Dane Cook of the cartoon world.

It's funny but it's not a GREAT show. It's something that i'll laugh at when it's on, but when people start comparing it to Simpsons and South Park then I gotta step in and say something. So yeah it's funny, but it's nothing award-worthy

Yea exactly, it's show you'll watch from time to time and laugh, but nothing that you'd talk about for days on how funny it is.

Does anyone actually watch King of the Hill? I have like a billion of those recorded and I watch them just as much as Simpsons and Family Guy. I don't watch South Park at all though. Never watched an entire episode. I'll admit, I never really tried to watch it, though I hear funny shit about it. I'm just turned off by the animation. Yeah, I know the animation doesn't mean shit, but I've just never tried to get into the show, but I wanna start. I know the shit is funny when I see clips. Although I think they rely too much on profanity.

King of the Hill is funny as hell to me. Maybe its because I use to live in Texas and I immediately get all the stereotypical and witty jokes they have that I find ****ing hilarious. Cowboys, trucks, high school football, small town, propane, I get all that shit, and its just hilarious to sees an average old fashion Texas family that I have seen in real life, go through the absolute funniest shit that may not even be that funny, but just becomes funny due to the lifestyle of these people, and their old fashion, slightly hillbilly like, propane like, grilling hot ass Texas ways.

I don't know, I just love that show, and I was sad when I found out it was canceled like a year ago.

Its not meant to be a 'smart' cartoon. It has its 'witty' moments, but its mostly an absurd cartoon. One that leaves you scratching your head like "wtf?". It is an acquired sense of humor I gotta admit, and its very juvenile as well.... but that's the entire point.

Brian is there to point out the absurdity of it all and provide social commentary from time to time, but the absurdity is that A DOG is the one trying to bring civility and often mocking humans.

American Dad on the other hand, is better crafted and a better all around show. It doesn't hide or pull any punches in its political and social stances.

Both are funny imo for their own reasons.

First few seasons were classic. But then the show slowly fell of season by season.
And at this point its unbearable to watch. The new episodes are just flat out terrible

I've watched it a few times. I think it's pretty funny. But I don't really like cartoons in general.

watched a few episodes but that's about it.

to the guy who liked King of the Hill. I agree, that's a great show.
It's like an animated Everybody Loves Raymond.
