Exactly the episode I was thinking of before I clicked the link. Great show.

Never could get into Futurama. Early Simpsons is the best. Family Guy and South Park can fight fot that 2 spot.

Simpson's seasons 1-14 (maybe earlier) > Futurama seasons 1-4 > Family guy before its first cancellation > South park

Cowboy Bebop > All

Last episode was hilarious. But there are only 2-3 awesome, 5-8 good episodes, and rest are avarage in current simpsons seasons.

But I highly recommend watching previous one, pure gold.

The Simpsons is as good as it ever was. Either people overrate the early years, or they are underrating current episodes. Or maybe's people tastes are changing. It's easily the smartest, funniest, and most enjoyable of the bunch.

South Park has great social commentary and can be very funny, but its also uneven. Some episodes are just really stupid. You can tell they made it up last minute. But still has some amazing episodes as well.

Futurama I never watched enough of. I think I just don't care for the characters or the premise or something. Can't get into it but the comedy you can tell is very good and well written.

I don't mention that last show. Complete garbage.

He's not saying everything that happened in the past should be referenced, he's saying that they're making references to things that happened after Fry went to the future so it makes no sense to reference it, because he wouldn't know what they were talking about.

Pop culture references in Futurama have always been kind of stupid if we're being honest though. Why are people from 1000 years from now still talking about the same shit? Calculon and Zapp Brannigan are like the only two celebrities in the year 3000.

To get to the point of the thread. I'd go with Simpsons as the best followed by Futurama, then South Park. Last and certainly least is Family Guy.

Keep dreaming. Your response makes me think you're 12. Too many people here trying to act smart and confrontational who just end up looking stupid.

Yeah, the show with all the accolades and the show being ranked #1 by various sources (including Time magazine naming it the greatest show of the century) is somehow light years behind South Park. Get off your high horse and realize that people have differing opinions and that yours isn't shared by the majority. Now, not to just shit on the show, I'll give it its props for pushing the envelope, and going against censorship, religion, politics, etc... Though, I guess it's pointless trying to argue against people who thought the whole "I'm not your friend, buddy" thing was humorous when it was just annoying.

At their peaks, South Park and the Simpsons are really close imo.

King of the Hill is very well done. Great character development, solid, smart.

Futurama does nothing for me. In fairness, I tried it early, got turned off quickly and never gave it much of another chance.

I'd sooner chew glass than watch five minutes of Family Guy. Insipid.

I wasn't a big of Futurama the first time around, but it grew on me the more I watched it. I think it's more of an acquired taste.

The Simpsons have been pretty since about 2002. Some of the seasons in the mid-90s though take a giant shit on anything by the rest of these shows. Anyway, the last 8 or so seasons have hurt the Simpsons' legacy quite a bit IMO.

Anyhoo

Simpsons
Futurama
South Park
Family Guy

That one South Park episode about censorship basically ruined Family Guy for me...

You needed South Park to tell you that Family Guy sucked? Everyone over the age of 15 knew that already.
