ANOTHER Muppet reference on Family Guy

    The Simpsons ran out of steam about season 9ish. I mean, after season 6 or 7 it started to be every once in a blue moon episode was really good. Now, I do think that they are going back to the character development stage more, like the good old days. They figured out that when you have guest stars, they don't have to play themselves. They can play other characters. Family Guy is probably at the point now that they know they have a hardcore audience, and that they don't have to worry about getting cancelled, so they can put a bunch of garbage on and nobody would worry about it. Last weeks episode was ok, but not what I would expect. Oh and if the courtship one is the one where Stewie finds his dad, the uncensored version is on DVD already under the title "Family Guy presents: Stewie Griffin the untold story"

    The Courtship of Stewies father is the episode where Lois believes he and Peter aren't spending enough time together, so after awhile, the two bond by attacking and hurting Lois by hitting her with jars and cans, hosing her down the stairs and locking her in the trunk and driving the car into the lake.
    I'd say it's worth it, but like I said, I realize I'm one of the very few who are enjoying the new episodes, and I've been a huge fan since the "Life In ****" series, so it's not like I'm some bandwagon fanboy.

    Me as well.. I've been with the Simpsons since their Tracy Ulman short days. I can remember hearing it was gonna be a series of its own, and I was overjoyed. But the problem is, I still will watch it, no matter how bad it gets (I'm a loyalist). I feel the writers just work there for a year as some right of passage, then work making some unfunny sitcom or screenplay. They can't even remeber that Homer's father is named "Abraham", not "grampah". Secondly... stop making Cletus comment on everything. He just ain't funny anymore. And third of all... NO MORE MUSICAL MONTAGES...EVERRRR!!!! There's like 2 per episode. They're using their guest star budget on music rights. Can you imagine in 10 years they lose the license to these songs, they'll be up the creak?

    As for Family Guy... I dunno about you, but the more obscure the refference, the harder I laugh. I bust a bleeding vessle when they had Timer the Cheese guy up all night because he "just smoked a bunch of crack." I laughed histerically when they had the reference to the 80's York peppermint patties advertisement (For those of you who don't know/remeber, it's the bit where Peter says he gets the sensation of being on a mountain top).

    We should start a pool and bet who's going to appear in upcoming episodes, how many Muppet references there will be this season... that sorta' thing.

    I'll get to that right...now.

    Doesn't exactly count as a Muppet reference but...

    The Gene Kelly dance with Stewie that just aired was the exact same one Gene and Kermit did together on TMS.:)

    Funny stuff.

    I just saw that, but I don't think they had :) in mind. I think he did it with Jerry the Mouse.

    I was a little surprised that the dance number went on for so long. I mean, I know Family Guy does that sometimes, but this time it seemed like too much.

    I didn't catch that episode, but I love the show, I think it's halarious. The best muppet moment was when Cookie Monster was addicted to Cookies and he was the show in two seperate scenes...it was great! :D
