    isn't it supposed to be stupid?
    isn't that the funny part?

    it's stupid and the humor is annoying at times, but it's an easy show to watch for some reason. I rarely lol at it.

    Quagmire is the best thing about it.

    I'm not so certain it has to do with an element, slater, but a position of that element, and I'm not so certain it is the leading position.

    Other than that, it's hard to keep it type related, but I'd still like to know why its correlated.

    I find family guy as friendly humor, and random enough to enjoy. When it's offensive, I try to find reasons to explore the depths of its offense. When the episode sucks, it entertains me by letting me think how it could get better in the future. When I don't understand what they're saying, I attempt to find their attitudes and voices funny.

    I like it a lot

    There's a lot of subtlety that I appreciate about it.

    The humor springs from the melding together many different expressions and moods in awkward situations. That's why it's funny, not necessarily because it's stupid or illogical. It being stupid is the given. There's obviously humor in everything though, so I'm not arguing with that.

    Like when Stewie fell asleep in the car while pointing the gun and Brian.

    Stewie: That's because you yelled!
    Brian: No you shot the gun first that's why I yelled!
    Stewie in a skeptical voice: Uhh, that's why I yelled. I'm watching you buddy.

    They detract really obvious forms of intelligence from the characters, so they're left with the complexity of their character with a lacking point of view. Both play it off nicely.

    somewhat off topic...

    but I seem to be the only ILI that finds the series and movies of 'Jackass' really awsome!

    I once had a discussion with an ILI about it, and he was simply incapable of understanding the humor of that show.

    Concerning family guy, I once saw a nice episode 'the bird is the word'

    Maybe they think it's too random? Where I would argue with them that it's a series of various setups, so it might seem random.

    Doesn't Jackass use a lot of Si concepts? In which you might relate to them more than Ni-ILIs do.

    I think the show has its really funny moments, but what really ruins it for me sometimes is Peter Griffin. There are things in the show that I was kind of taken back initially, which made me not watch it for a long time because I thought it was really messed up (like Stewie wanting to kill his mom). I'm not a regular viewer though.

    I used to enjoy it a lot, but now I find it hard to watch for some reason? I think it really depends on the episode.

    Anyway, Brian is my favorite.

    How can you not like Peter Griffin? Family Guy was practically like my minor in college.

    But yeah, Brian and Stewie are probably funnier overall.
