the last episode I watched was the one where Brian died - the show was getting pretty terrible and repetitive by then anyways, but that was the last straw for me.

I'd say Season 15 was the last hope I had for Family Guy...

They didn't have many Stewie/Brian eps, it was mostly Peter Griffin and he became more of an ******* than ever!

ALSO...I hate it when Seth MacFarlane slams Christianity on Family Guy...he didn't do it to an extent until the 2000's! He commits blasphemy only to grind people's gears! And his Liberal views are straining Family Guy as well!

I really haven't watched this show in so long I almost forgot about it. It used to be my favorite. The whole Vinny/Brian thing did it for me also.

I guess I never really understood why Family Guy is so popular, and I still don't.

I think it was just a show that was funny at one time. You really didn't have to think about it but when it was just the same thing over and over I lost interest.

The original run was good. At first I dismissed it as a blatant Simpsons ripoff but when they aired it on Adult Swim I really grew to enjoy it.

I also think the first two or three seasons after it returned to the air in 2006 were pretty good. After that, it went downhill quickly. The writers are almost transparently bored, they have gutted the characters so that they are all just hateful people, and the jokes are indeed repetitive.

I haven't seen a new ep in several years.
