I didn’t want to highjack any of the Family Guy and South Park threads.
But I’m curious what everyone thinks about the other animated shows on Fox Sunday night: American Dad and King of the Hill, the Simpsons (of course), and in the past, Futurama.
I think there’s another one, too, but I can’t remember the name or plot.
I like American Dad, but mainly because of Roger the alien. He reminds me so much of Paul Lynde, whom I adored when I was a child. There was a great episode of American Dad called “Of Ice and Men,” where Francine discovers that her husband is a figure skater. It’s so hilarious, and we made a DVD of it and show it to all our skating friends. They love it, too.
I can’t stand King of the Hill. I think it’s weird and I don’t think it’s funny at all. To me, it’s just too pathetic–I feel sorry for these people who live such trivial lives. I especially feel sorry for Bobby–he’s so…unboyish.
I LOVE THE SIMPSONS–brilliant show. So many characters.
I hear that Cleveland (from Family Guy) will get his own show, but I’m not sure what I think about that. He’s the most boring one on Family Guy. We’ll see.
I really liked Futurama, and I’m not sure why it was taken off the air.
