    "The Simpsons vs Family Guy" [news article - stay on topic, please]

    Please don't turn this into an actual "what I think is better" topic. This is a pretty cool piece just posted on ninemsn, where they compare the 'digs' at each other in their respective shows. In the end they come to the conclusion that The Simpsons' digs at Family Guy were better...

    Showrunners' families writing episodes

    I've been re-watching Season 10 with commentary lately, and listening to Julie Thacker and Mike Scully got me thinking - what do people think of the trend that started in Season 7 of the showrunners' families contributing scripts to the show? From memory, these are the episodes: RACHEL PULIDO...

    whats the deal with wall-e

    some random bitch is in my living room watching this and so i thought i'd give it another shot, but what the fuck is this? I mean, dont get me wrong, its a brilliant movie, but how can it be so logically flawed? Intelligent robots? I know its supposed to be the future, but this is the kind of...

    Birthday cards in The Simpsons

    Hey guys, first post in a long, long time. I'm trying to make a birthday card for my best friend, who's a massive Simpsons fan. Last year I made them the "how about a nice pair of bongos?" one from Homer Defined, so that's out of the question this year...I'm kinda stuck, any other birthday...

    Interesting "Simpsons" analogy in tech article

    As a huge Apple nerd, I came across this article. Tech stuff aside, there is a very interesting Simpsons reference that caught my eye: Steve Jobs' Killer Instinct

    R&R Family Guy: The Juice Is Loose

    What'd everyone think of this week's new Family Guy? Honestly lately I'd been really getting into Family Guy; the season started off craptacular, as usual, but I thought it had been picking up a lot with the last few episodes. This one just blew. It was a total mess. Everything...

    R&R American Dad: "Jack's Back"

    I was surprised that there wasn't an R&R for this already. I have to say that this is one of my favourite AD episodes. At first I didn't really like all the callbacks to Stan's father and that entire bit was definitely the most boring part of the episode, but it had lots of humour that has...

    So it's now been a year...

    ...has your opinion on The Simpsons Movie changed in the 366 days since its release? Personally I don't think it is as good as I initially thought; definite 'A+' after I first saw it, it has since been reduced to A-. Way better than the 'current' show, but still doesn't really match any from...

    Favorite 'celebrity packed' episode

    Hopefully you know the episodes I mean; ones that are just packed with useless guest stars. These are the 'rules' I followed to get this list of episodes: 1) Three or more guests that play an "important"* role in the episode 2) In some cases, bands are not included since they do not play this...

    Season 18...a follow up thread.

    ...a follow up to "Why do people hate Season 17?" Overall this season leaves me feeling a lot better than Season 17, although there are still a lot of flaws that didn't seem to get sorted out between the HABF and the JABF run. The Mook, the Chef, the Wife and Her Homer C+ Jazzy and the...

    Comic Strip

    Here's an excerpt of a comic strip I'm currently working on. It has a full script, and once I complete the rest of it I will color and letter it. There's a few background characters I'm gonna clean up, too.

    My THOH episode
