    Also Teen Titans Go! is another one of the shows I used to like but now can't stand anymore. You want to know why? Well, let me explain it in the words of that incredibly annoying show:

    "Waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles, waffles,".

    Honestly I gave it a fair chance when it first premiered and already decided it wasn’t for me.

    I’m just disgusted that it’s now become a cash cow for Cartoon Network.

    Side note, but on the other hand, that show has really proven just how immature hardcore 90’s kids are: complaining it “ruined” their childhood, sending out death threats to everyone involved (including the ******* voice actors who have no control on how it works :rolleyes:), stupid online petitions, etc.

    Oh this is easy, The Big Bang Theory. My mother watches it every night and thinks it’s “well-written.” She does not have good taste in comedy.

    The only thing about TTG that @LittleJerry92 and I can agree on is . . . that "Legs" episode should have been done during the original TT series, when Raven really had some legs to speak of. :p

    Yeah. A bunch of nerds who happen to be sexually repressed deviants. That's comedy.

    This is more of the fanbase but, Loud House has gotten really ridiculous with their fans either overpraising or overhating an episode

    Honestly I’m not surprised that the Loud House fan base has become full of SJW’s.

    Any modern day Nickelodeon or Disney sitcom.

    This is my reaction when I watch those shows:



    If that trend of crappy tween sitcoms is still going on when I someday have children of my own, I will let them watch the ones that I grew up on such as Zoey 101, iCarly, Victorious, The Suite Life of Zach & Cody, Jessie, etc.

    The reason most parents don't let their kids watch certain shows is because of inappropriate content. The reason that I wouldn't want my children watching new Disney and Nickelodeon sitcoms if I was a parent is because I don't want to expose MYSELF to that unfunny garbage. I'm not worried about the kids, I'm worried about those crazy shows driving me completely insane.

    Despite my query on Robot Chicken and how it relies far too much on shock value earlier, believe it or not most adult cartoons don't bother me at all. Heck, I'm even a HUGE Drawn Together fan for crying out loud.

    There is however one other adult cartoon aside from Robot Chicken that has always gotten under my skin:Brickleberry. All of the characters weren't even original ideas but rather predictable stereotypes (the greedy Jewish guy, the stereotypical Asian who says "herro" instead of "hello" and "preeze" instead of "please", the typical 1950s housewife woman character, the Italian guy who acts like Al Capone, etc.). In addition to the ridiculous characters, the show also featured awkward sexual scenes and even nudity (the one episode I even bothered to watch showed the main bear character with a human scrotum getting sewn to his head completely uncensored), overuse of profanity to the point of sheer annoyance, and pointless jokes about things like cancer, sexual assault, domestic violence, Parkinson's disease, suicide, The Holocaust, and other inherently unfunny things that didn't even attempt to be clever and were only there to shock the viewers into paying attention.

    It was really just a ripoff of Family Guy with all the creativity taken out of it. Think about it:It features a talking animal who acts like a person and is loaded with shock value and far too many pop culture/celebrity jokes. Yup, sounds like whoever created that show was trying to be "the next Seth MacFarlane" but ultimately failed because they had only seen one of the worst Family Guy episodes and tried to copy solely off of that.

    Family Guy seasons 12 and 13. Man, that was a dark era for an otherwise good show.

    The fact that we got so many of the show's most infamous episodes such as "Brian's a Bad Father", "Herpe, the Love Sore", "Fresh Heir", "The 2,000 Year Old Virgin", "Life of Brian", "Christmas Guy", and "Quagmire's Mom" without the short span of TWO seasons really speaks for how awful the show had become at that point.

    I recently re-discovered the DVDs of seasons 12 and 13 I had stored away, which when I was a teenager were my all-time favorite Family Guy seasons. So I decided to re-watch both of them for nostalgia purpose, having mainly stuck to the older seasons during recent Family Guy viewings. Holy crap, I totally forgot how much gory violence, suicide references, masturbation jokes, racism, sexism, F-bombs, disgusting vomit scenes, and references to people having sex with animals are in those two seasons. I almost felt physically sick watching some of the harsher scenes (Peter killing a beached whale with a forklift, showing it's blood and entrails being graphically displayed on screen comes to mind as a major example of this).

    While the newer episodes have certainly gotten better and Family Guy remains a favorite cartoon of mine to this day, I just can't deny that the show hit an all-time low for a little while there and I'm a bit surprised that they ever got their groove back after two seasons of pure unadulterated shock "comedy" that would feel more at home in a horror cartoon than an animated sitcom.

    That season had one of my least favorite episodes in the history of all animation, PERIOD in it. It was called "Grimm Job" and it was easily one of the darkest and most sickening cartoons that I've ever laid my eyes upon. It was done in the style of an extremely dark gothic fairy tale, with stories like Little Red Riding Hood and Cinderella being horrifyingly corrupted. The two most cringeworthy scenes were The Big Bad Wolf being violently sliced in half by the wood cutter (they showed hyper-realistic drawings of his intestines, blood, liver, bones, brains, and other guts without any attempt to make it look cartoon-ish or unrealistic) and Meg randomly hanging herself at the end of the episode with no reason as to why that even happened.

    Another extremely disturbing theme I noticed being utilized time and time again throughout the seasons was the awful topic of pedophilia. I can't even begin to count how many of season 12 and 13's sexual jokes revolved around children or underaged characters. I honestly can't believe that some of the things they showed are even legal! I mean, it certainly wasn't full on animated child porn or anything but they still got surprisingly over the top with the writer's obvious obsession with pedophilia that seriously makes me question their mental health. There were times while watching the two seasons that I actually worried in the back of my mind about getting arrested for owning those DVDs due to how they constantly pushed the envelope with sexual jokes regarding characters that aren't of the legal consent age in the United States.

    So yeah, those two seasons were certainly something....to say the least. I'm glad that now Family Guy is back on it's feet but I'll never forget that not too long ago, there was a time when the show I love was a complete nightmare loaded with gory violence, psychopathic humor, sexualization of minors, and gross vomiting sequences that made me want to vomit alongside the characters on screen.

    Okay, I've officially stopped watching Saturday Night Live basically for the same reasons I quit watching Robot Chicken. Here's why:

    1. It's WAY too politically preachy. Don't get me wrong, I don't like Donald Trump at all. I think he's a terrible president but at the same time I don't watch comedy shows to see people hate on Trump, I watch them to laugh and be entertained. The Trump "jokes" on this show are just watching the actors hate on him without actually being the least bit clever or witty about it. It's ironic how they bash Trump in the most brutal ways imaginable, sometimes even making personal attacks on him. You know who ELSE likes to make brutal, personal attacks on people he doesn't like? Donald Trump. While they claim to be against him, they seem to have stooped to Trump's level of tastelessness. I don't like it when the president says those types of things so naturally, I don't like it when SNL does that either.

    2. There's way too many weird skits. When the show isn't shoving it's politic views as far down the viewer's throats as it can go without choking them, they are producing some of the most bizarre and pointless comedy sketches I've ever seen. Some of the weirdest examples I can think of off hand include a daddy dog show where the contests were all human fathers, Christmas ornaments talking to each other, a parody of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song that ended in a drive by shooting (?), a Stranger Things sketch about Eleven's powers being used to do pretty inappropriate things, a Snow White parody where The Wicked Queen tells a man that he will be losing five inches off his p*nis if he wants to kiss the princess, a family getting into an argument about what Shrek movie is the best one for no reason at the Thanksgiving dinner table, and a parody of Revenge of the Nerds that was really just an excuse for Jason Momoa to show off his impersonation of The Ogre shouting "NEEEEEEERRRRRRDDDDDDSSSSSS!" in the iconic comedy movie as opposed to an actual sketch.

    -Juvenile humor. Modern SNL despite being a supposed "adult" show is loaded to the brim with poop, pee, vomit, sex, m*sturb*tion, vomit, snot, puberty, and boob jokes as well as cussing just for the sake of cussing. It's odd how despite SNL being made for people older than I am, I've thought before "I would've only found that funny when I was 7-years-old" while watching some of the skits that contain a ridiculous amount of toilet, sexual, and cuss word-related humor.

    -So many of the jokes are totally offensive. Don't get me wrong, I'm not some kind of SJW who thinks it's wrong to make fun of anything offensive. Stuff like racial stereotypes, religious jokes, gay jokes, and depending on the context Hitler jokes don't bother me at all. But SNL goes WAY too far and will literally make fun of any sensitive topic. It's hard to imagine the actors even saying some of these lines in good conscience. Parkland Shooting jokes, a parody of the time Chris Brown beat up Rihanna, making fun of some politician who has Down's Syndrome, jokes about picking up girls at a concentration camp, Bill Cosby and Harvey Weinstein sexual assault jokes, ISIS jokes, and references to people having sex with animals is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the highly insensitive and shocking things SNL has included. They've even said the N-word uncensored in certain episodes lately. It's just a very cruel and mean spirited show that will take any offensive subject, no matter how sensitive, and pick it on in the darkest ways imaginable.

    -No recurring characters. The original SNL had such classics as Hanz and Franz, Wayne and Garth, Drunk Uncle, Church Lady, Debbie Downer, Mr. Robinson, Matt the motivational speaker who says "IN A VAN DOWN BY THE RIVER!" a lot, Rosanne Rosanadana, and the hilariously violent cartoon character Mr. Bill. But nowadays there are no recurring original characters whatsoever. Just a bunch of one-off skits. Maybe if they had some original content as opposed to just pure randomness, I may like the new episodes a little better than I do.


    Although not everything on new SNL is bad. I've seen some skits here and there that were rather funny and felt like the classic episodes. But as time went on, the show became less creative and more reliant on shock/surreal humor. I think that just like Robot Chicken and The Simpsons, SNL has run it's course. It's been going on for WAAAAAYYYY too long and the golden era of SNL is about as far away as possible right now.

    One of the only things that I truly respect the new episodes for isn't even a comedy sketch. It's the time they had Jason Aldean (who just witnessed a mass shooting at his concert) guest star on the show and do a tribute to the late Tom Petty who died one day earlier. As a fan of both Jason Aldean and Tom Petty, I thought this was wonderful to see and actually made me shed a few tears. That was a terrible time period for the music era;losing Tom Petty and having Jason Aldean suffer so badly within the same week. But SNL gave me hope for the future and kind of made me feel better because trust me, both of those sad things happened to singers I enjoy within a short amount of time was way too much for me to bare and gave me serious anxiety for a while. But thankfully Jason Aldean's appearance on this otherwise poor quality show helped ease my nerves about the whole situation a bit:

    I can never 100 percent hate any show that does something as awesome as that. Bringing the music of two great artists together in a very heartwarming and uplifting way during such a dark period. That definitely deserves some credit right there.

    Honestly, given that Hollywood is fairly liberal to begin with, it just doesn’t come off as a surprise that Trump is made fun of in every comedy show now.

    Once again, here's the thing: SNL is an equal opportunity offender, they make fun of everybody, and since their humor is topical, of course politics is going to be a go-to subject for them. They're making fun of Trump a lot right now because he's "president" right now (and a terrible president at that) . . . but remember, in years past, they've made fun of not just Obama, but other Democratic politicians as well: the 2008 election was very much fodder for them.

    For an entire season, SNL made of Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton (Bill as a fame whore, Hillary as a narcissist who wanted to be the first woman president in history), Joe Biden (as a coniving scheme), Al Gore (obsessive compulsive about global warming), John Edwards (an ambulance chaser), Bill Richardson (playing up being half-Mexican and wanting to be Hillary's running mate), Dennis Kucinich (a little girly man), and Mike Gravel (an old, mentally unstable lunatic). They also made fun of the male politicians acting like a bunch of sexist bullies against Hillary, and they also made fun of mainstream media (yes, SNL made fun of mainstream media) for showing biased favoritism towards Hillary.

    Once we have a new president, regardless of who they are, SNL will probably make fun of them as well - maybe not as much, because of all the damage Trump has been doing, anybody would more competent than him at this point. Nobody is off-limits.
    And Flaky Pudding, be honest, you say you don't watch those shows anymore, but surely you still do, they're all you ever talk about.

    ^^^For what it's worth, I liked the Christmas Ornaments sketch. As far as SNL's treatment of Trump goes*, two things: 1) They're kinder to him than Stephen Colbert is. 2) When Darrell Hammond was a regular cast member waay before Trump was president, he was the resident Trump impersonator and did a pretty decent job. With the passing of Don Pardo, Hammond is now the official SNL announcer. So why can't he go back to being the resident Trump impersonator? Certainly he could do it better than Baldwin.
    *I don't mind us getting into politics but as the creator of this thread, I encourage everyone to tread lightly. We've been doing a good job so far so let's just keep it up.

    And Frank Caliendo was even better than both of them, IMO; but, he was a MADtv castmember, not SNL.
