Just watching Family Guy and I'm wondering why the programmes that are cartoons such as FG and American Dad are able to be more risque and very close to the bone when it comes to racism, sexism and jokes against all kinds of minorities? I find both shows very funny and I like that they can be this way and not have to be politically correct for fear of someone thinking they're being offended (there's far too much political correctness these days imo) but if the characters were replaced by humans, none of it would be allowed, would it?

I've lived here for a while now so anything USA you don't understand, just ask and I'll explain smile

I agree American Dad isn't quite as funny, but Roger the alien does come out with some gems occasionally

TBH, American Dad is so much better than FG. It actually has a storyline that it sticks to as opposed to a bunch of random and irrelevant stories loosely strung together. Dont get me wrong FG is funny, but the random 'Remember the time when I......' sequences gets a bit boring.

If you think American Dad and FG are risque, you should try Drawn Together. Its a lot worse IMO.

South Park is still king, but its been slipping lately, if it wasnt for cartman I think the show would be a lot worse.

Being so random is one reason why family guy is awesome!! grin

But yeah, i can't remember what happened but in one of the newer episode they went so far, I was like, can they say that? Haha, and didn't the people who made little britain say they were purposely pushing it to be as insulting as possible before being told off, or something? So it's not just american shows.

Isn't that part of the point - that Peter is so ignorant and stupid that he says the UnPC things in ignorance and not in a malicous way

I can't stand Family Guy or American Dad.

For me it's Southpark, The Big Bang Theory, Two and a Half Men (I know, I know, but I've seen them all..) and Supernatural.
