what went wrong exactly ? why this is unfunny according to /co/ ? i never saw any episodes.
because please if you dislike that cuz the characters does wrong things or because offensive content you aren't just the target audience, why /co/ can't stop with this kind of autistic argument ? also you must stop too with wannabe hipster arguments like "edgy" or "mean-spirited" over, over and over, this is pretty stupid of thinking it's a negative point for an adult show who does that on purpose anyway, it's like saying a porn movie is a bad movie because that's countain pornography.
so what went wrong exactly ?
offensive humour that doesnt work is a lot worse than other kinds of humour that doesnt work
Either way, my thoughts:
Political humour: 4/10
Random humour: 9/10
If it lost the political stuff and McFarlane stigma it would be quite good.
> offensive humour that doesnt work is a lot worse than other kinds of humour that doesnt work
so what ? it doesn't work only for butthurt people and if you are not the target audience.
I only saw the first episode but the scene with the Fox News parody anchor screaming at the little girl is GOAT.
and i have right wing leanings.
>If it lost the political stuff and McFarlane stigma it would be quite good.
sounds like American Dad
but the art style is way too horrible for me to believe it'll ever have a comeback like AD
ditto. I think the ting with this show is that, uniquely because this issue is so completely out of date and everyone is basically on our side now, we can laugh at it. It's hard to laugh at something when people are still gettin politicky about it, but this we can laugh about. it's so divorced from reality. and the presidential race has been predetermined to be a joke anyway
>Art style too horrible
and mcfarlane, groening, and bouchard's art ISN'T? this kind of comedy never has good art. not even in japan, where we get crayon shin-chan or super milk-chan kind of grotesque art
yeah /co/ rightfully despised the trailer.. and the beginning of the first episode. But basically after santa maria smacked some SJW bitch, the second half of the first episode and nearly all of the second episode was.... pretty good.. Pretty good.
the problem of FG aren't the random cut-away gags but more like the fact that most episodes have a fucking boring plot and this is abusively pop culture-referenced with old 80s live action shows or celebrities.
No dude, you have it all wrong.
Let me use an example. The whale mauling scene from Family Guy.
Yes there are people who are just offened by them mauling a whale, they aren't the target audience. But there are people like me who are that audience who still disliked that scene. You want to know why? Because it had no punchline! It wasn't a joke, it was just boring!
You can't just slaughter an animal and expect that to be funny on it's own just like you can't expect a rubber chicken to be funny on it's own. You have to make it a joke, other wise it's just boring to it's target audience and feels like a desperate cry for attention.
Cruel and offensive humor still needs to be humor!
well in this case i agree but actually that's not a real animal anyway and this scene was boring because it's too long, this kind of trash or disgusting gag scenes are pretty fast for most offensive shows, in that case this is a thing simply called "provocation".
and why /co/ bitching so much about this whale scene ? this is a drawing, it's unreal, I would understand better for live action garbage like "A Serbian Film" but for a cartoon....
it's simply logic.
people who watch this kind of stuff watch that because they like black comedy and trash humor, and are not offended by some jokes, they are part of the target audience of the show.
and again with my "porn movie argument" WHAT DID YOU EXPECT WATCHING THAT SERIOUSLY ? you can not blame a porn movie for having porn because it was made for that, same thing for an offensive adult cartoon.
different things exist for different tastes.
3south, you mean. Both shows are actually created by the same guy
also man episode 2 was way better than most of episode 1. why do (almost) all episode 1s tend to suck fucking dick
McFarlane is obsessed with saying
>Republicans are stupid
yes it's possible, an offensive show is good when the offensives jokes are funny, if they are unfunny the offensive show is worthless, but that depend of the point of view of each persons.
the problem is some people thinks "offensive = automatically bad" they are intolerant against every jokes or critics, and yes it's funny by being offensive, it's funny to make fun of some kind of people, this is human nature i'm sorry.
Fox likes to put his name onto things to increase the chances of ratings, even if his involvement is little to none. The show itself ain't half bad and has some laughs.
The only political comedy I remember from this show was the fox news anchor, which was pretty funny. The show itself is centered around the politics of immigration but the actual comedy is more focused on the characters and the random stuff you mentioned. The sjw nephew is also has him moments because of what a smug dead beat he is.
You know how political cartoons are rarely that funny? Imagine that for 30 minutes with the best 10 minutes being the commercials.
Some of the jokes were okay, like the jazz bit, but really it's about as subtle as DONALD TRUMP IS THE DEVIL.
And American Dad shed most of its political "humor" because it wasn't working. This show is bathing in it and is even worse overall.
Shin-chan is crude, but can easily be made attractive.
Personally can't say the same for Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, or American Dad.
