Dude, that's the thing. American Dad got a LOT funnier over time. You should start watching episodes at say, Season 6. By then, it finds its own identity and becomes a show that Family Guy only wishes it could be.

I wouldn't say the last part, necessarily. AD does get HILARIOUS at S6 but the type of humor intentionally avoids Family Guy's. At that point they are just two funny shows (especially since the season of FG that aired tandem to AD S6 was one of the better ones).

I'm not saying that Family Guy isn't funny because I know that at least a couple of its seasons in recent years have made me laugh my ass off. When I said my last quote, I agree that it was a bit forceful since they do use different types of humor (hence why I said "it finds its own identity"), but it still manages to captivate me in a way that Family Guy never could in a consecutive manner. So yeah, I should've worded that better lol.

I like the Simpsons. But it has undeniably gone down in quality over the years. Not that you still can't enjoy it, but it's pretty much being milked harder than lpool's mum. As of now, I definitely like Futurama more, considering how that's one of the only comedy series that actually maintains consistent quality and gets better with age.

XD poor innocent lpool.. count. apologize

And I agree with the simpsons. The older ones are definitely better and that was what I meant when stating it was one of my favorite shows. I don't have cable and so I never really watch the new episodes anyways unless I am at a friends house or on break at work.

That's quite a ways to wait hahaha.  "You should check out American Dad.  If you can make it through the first 5 seasons, you're golden" Laughing

Or, you know, you could just skip them and watch season 5 since it's a comedy that doesn't rely on past episodes for continuity relevance. what

i'm just messing with you count haha.  Most people say something like "the first few episodes are a little rocky but it gets better after that"

Well AD DOES have continuity actually. You can tell by whether Haley and Jeff are married and whether Roger leaves the house what season it is. Also, it's not that 1-5 aren't funny Marko, they're just Scrubs funny - you enjoy it but rarely laugh outright. It's hard to explain the charm the series has, really.

Also, middle Simpsons is where it's at. Early, it sucked. Post-movie it sucked. Seasons like 4-16 are good though.

Yeah, but it isn't like it changes continuity enough to the point where every single episode is essential to the plot. It's one of those shows where only one-two episodes every few seasons actually bother to change the general layout of the show a bit.
