Family Guy says Canada sucks

episode i watched last night ended with a dig at Canada (not sure if that was a repeat that I saw last night) ... which I can handle, but it was such a heavy handed dig ie. the last line said was "Canada sucks" like, it's not ok to make fun of people from other countries except for Canada because Canada sucks.

ok, i shouldn't care and i don't REALLY care, but i was mildly surprised and sorta offended ... i mean, they couldn't come up with anything better than that?

that show is so redundant. they use the same jokes over and over, just with different scenes. "remember the time that....." and temporarily shoot to a new scene. 'random humour' is way less creative anyways. its just undisciplined, and that's why its slightly entertaining.

i've run out of snide remarks to make at people being supprised when something predictable happens.

Family Guy has been sucking the past while. American Dad had been doing pretty good up until the last episode which left me thinking 'what the fuck?' and not in the good way either.

OF course not, its Peter Griffin.

Really though, how much do we rip on the USA on all of our media outlets? Quite a bit.

there hasnt been a popular sitcom I've watched that hasnt taken a swipe outta canada. The Simpsons has dissed the ol CA for years! Whilst watching 3rd rock from the sun, they haven take several jabs at our nation. Fuck, COLBERT the first time his show aired on the comedy channel!

I found myself laughing my ass off.

South Park does it best; because they actually know a bit about us

As South Park revealed on an episode this season, Family Guy is written by a tank full of manatees pushing random plot balls into tubes.


So I wouldn't worry too much about what they say.

Some comedians in Canada have made a living from ripping on the USA.

South Park had "Downtown Canada" as a sign on one of the eps. I laughed. oh, and the cn tower was surrounded by nothing but trees if I remember correctly.

i do think it's funny, and i'm always interested to see how canada is mentioned / included in / joked about by american media but this one was totally weak and in its weakness it was just an insult rather than a joke. imo. but yeah, i guess what i shoudl be thinking is how weak their writing was that they couldn't come up with something better.

Hmmm ... Hitler reincarnated as a T-Rex exacting his revenge by stomping through cities around the world.

Sounds like a hit movie idea!

"I thought there was only one highway in Canada?"


"there is....and you all went the wrong way!"
