2014 was one of those years that started out like “THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT!!!” and its halfway through and we have a war going on, a deadly disease has been spread, countless shootings have happened, racism is alive, more people have been leaving living things inside of hot cars, and robin williams is fucking dead

u better watch ur fucking skeletone
Doctor Who as a bookseries: Series 8 | Masterpost | Episode 1-6
IT’S OFFICIALLY OCTOBER YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS
This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy.
I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.
Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.
One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.
There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.
I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.
There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.
And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.
It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.
You can’t compare two entirely different shows in that way. They’re not meant to be the same, at all.
Family Guy aims for a different kind of humour than The Simpsons. The Simpsons is parody and direct social commentary and “real life situations”.
Family Guy is reactionary.
In real life, if a father treated his daughter that way, it would be fucking terrible - outrageous.
It’s funny in Family Guy because you know its wrong.
This is a kind of humour even small children understand.
"Haha, ducks don’t go ‘moo’, that’s hilarious."
"Haha, you disappeared behind your hands and now I am surprised to see that you have returned, this is comedy genius."
It’s a scary statement about society when people can see this behaviour on television and treat it as if it is real. It not only shows us that society can no longer differentiate between fantasy and reality (I blame two decades of reality TV), but that we now accept this behaviour as normal. We see cartoons being abusive and think “that could actually happen!” That’s what’s “bad” about Family Guy - it turns those who aren’t laughing into an uncomfortable mirror that reflects how society has degenerated.
literally the only thing they have in common is being black men
A bossy girlfriend who is constantly choosing the Doctor over him
Yup. Totally the same characters, with the same…
I’m trying to think of when Amy or Clara chose the Doctor over Rory or Danny.
I think they chose both
Rose dropped Mickey (literally) and ran in
Yeah, but when they had a choice between Doctor or Rory/Danny.
And Rose was called out on that, at least.
Yep in World War 3 she could have stayed as she had been away for a year but nope she didn’t
As soon as 11 knew amy had a soon to be husband he took him aboard
And Nine didn’t exactly try to talk Rose out of leaving again.
Neither did 10 in new earth or school reunion
