One thing that really pisses me off about SMF, mostly FG though AD is guilty of it too, is the overstretched joke. I mean, Peter running home in the Willie Wonka parody, falling and hurting his knee is okay. But he says "Ow" about twenty times, slowly, before the scene ends. How can that be anything except trying to fill up time in an episode for which they have few ideas? And as for the god-damn musical numbers! But don't get me started on Conway Twatty, sorry Twitty!

Home movies and Dr katz top them all for my taste.

Mind you, new FG and AD is a steaming pile, and I don't remember when I last laughed at a Simpsons episode.
That's the old sp in later seasons they started to connect all the best gags in the season. Season 18 is particularly good.

When it comes to clever writing i think The Simpsons is the best one but i still give the edge to sp because of the way they ridicule social trends.

Which season is the Trump one? I think that's the one I saw last, where they break the internet?

South Park by far, and anyone who prefers Family Guy is a heathen. FG used to be great, but sucks dick now. SP is still good.

If the story about Mac trying to sabotage his own show is true, then cool. If not, then he thinks he can do anything with both his shows and everyone will keep watching. Some of the newer ones have been absolute dog****. I mean, Brian becoming a Republican? Please...
