I don't know if this is the right place for this or not but I want to make a post in defence of Family Guy.

Humor is very subjective so ultimately if you don't find the show funny you don't find the show funny and there is nothing wrong with that.
But…
I regularly see people use Family Guy as a punching bag. A lot of tv "connoisseurs" look down on, of all things, a fucking cartoon program.
>NOOOO, this cartoon is not up to MY standards, I expect it to be an absolute masterpiece much like 2001: A Space Odyssey

The main criticism, besides the humor not being funny (which is a totally valid criticism, but keep in mind humor is subjective) is the cutaways. The argument goes along the lines of that the cutaways are:
1. a cheap way to generate humor.
2. unrelated to the plot
Lets be real, if you don't like Family Guy its probably because you don't like Family Guy. Its probably not because of "Oh I actually enjoy the shit out of Family Guy but I cannot watch it because the hecking cutaways"
>Oh no the cutaways have nothing to do with the plot therefore my day is ruined.
>Oh no the cutaways are a quick easy way to get a laugh, in a silly cartoon program, oh no this ruined my whole week.
Like really, that's your criticism, the fucking cutaways. The cutaways are… LE BAD!!! Like fucking grow up. I'm not saying the cutaways are necessarily good but its such a minor thing to get worked up on in a fucking silly cartoon program. Even the criticism of the characters over time becoming more of a stereotype of themselves is more valid that this.
>The cutaways have to be relevant to the plot because… because they just have to, ok!?
Why? Why do they have to? They don't have to so deal with it.

Yeah so basically my point is that Family Guy is an okish show and people use it as punching bag because it's an easy target and because it's what other tv snobs do.

Westworld S4 tonight. True to the brand image for the last 3 seasons it's an underwhelming mystery box of self-important nonsense that basically ignores the stakes of the season before it. Dolores didn't really die, the world is lampshaded as being pretty much the same after the revolution (except now everything is solarpunk instead of S3's 20-minutes-into-the-future white and chrome look), and the new cryptic macguffin is called the Tower instead of the Maze, or Forge, or Valley Beyond or whatever. They have yet to see a single new plot element or character that doesn't come across as self-parody.

Not him, but surprisingly none. There was only a very subtle criticism towards russian oligarchs, in fact they murder one as a side mission when they travel to Russia. But it was a supe-consuming therefore western influenced Russia rather than anything commie.
In the last episode there was a parody of anti-commie 70s shows and America backing mujahideen lol

I wish they ended Westworld after season one, it ended fine as it did. Season two sucked, season three had some moments but overall sucked as well. They dug themselves into this hole where everybody is a host now, or everybody could be a host, hence also can't die because you can just 3D print a new body. This way the stakes a lowered, you don't really root for anybody, and why they beautyfully depicted Dolores' and Maeves journey to consciousness, they don't care about that anymore, everyone is conscious, and we are just supposed to accept that. When all the protagonists are androids it breaks immersion. Season four looks like shit as well. "Actually this guy was a host all along!" became stale quickly after the Bernard reveal in season one because they keep using that.

 No.26392

>>26358
I assumed they finished filming before the Ukraine war, or they would have added some more anti-Russian tropes. Their main focus seems to be a harsh parody on America, but unlike movies like "Don't Look Up" they are not just going for one side but take the living shit out of liberals as well. In fact, moreso this season. And I feel like you kinda have to, because when you target Marvel/DC you have to focus liberals because those fan communities are filled to the brink with those types (except the Joker movie).

Sometimes they are going overboard with the constant sex jokes and over-the-top gore, I didn't like how Heroegasm was pitched as this sickest episode ever when everything we saw wasn't as near as fucked up as that Termite scene in episode one. It's their trademark now but I always enjoy the more dialog-heavy scenes, flashbacks of Soldier Boy (that Blondie cover cracked me up), and so on. They don't need to become all that silly, it feels like fan service for the idiots that just watch it for the shock value which was the same problem Game of Thrones got.

 No.26401

It's funny how season 4 had almost no marketing. HBO probably wants to kill the show for being expensive. They reduced the budget so much that season 4 just time skips past the ensuing chaos at the end of season 3. The conflict is just over and we're back to brunch lmao. Near the beginning of the first episode there's even a conversation about how after they deleted all the AI and robots things are still the same.

>They dug themselves into this hole where everybody is a host now, or everybody could be a host, hence also can't die because you can just 3D print a new body.

They even killed off pretty much the last remaining human character in the post-credits scene at the end of season 3 just to introduce a host replacement. Not even playing around with mystery, just the new robot comes in, unceremoniously slits throat, takes place lmao.

The guy who played Jesse in BB is still human, right? I haven't watched episode two.
>It's funny how season 4 had almost no marketing. HBO probably wants to kill the show for being expensive.
Classic HBO move. This show seems done, really. Feel sorry for the actors, I like Thandie Newton, she aged like wine. It's also funny it's still called Westworld while having nothing to do with the park or the Wild West at all anymore.
>They even killed off pretty much the last remaining human character in the post-credits scene at the end of season 3 just to introduce a host replacement. Not even playing around with mystery, just the new robot comes in, unceremoniously slits throat, takes place lmao.

Well, two-off cameo so far. He survived the herogasm episode so he might be brought back again, but I get the feeling that Amazon might have vetoed an outright heroic communist being part of the show.
>did you notice any anti-communist tones in the new season?
Part of the plot involves the Sandinistas (mentioned by name) who are not really portrayed either negatively or positively, kind of just there as the people the CIA was fighting that week (the CIA is portrayed wholly negatively). This is probably as good as you will get from a show on Amazon.

>>26402
>The guy who played Jesse in BB is still human, right? I haven't watched episode two.
Supposedly he's human but there's still weird shit from season 3 that was never resolved where his memory appeared to "glitch" or something so who knows.
>Apparently Ed Harris was quite mad that his story in season 3 was so convoluted and nonsensical.
Heard that too. Not surprised in the least. It's like they realized "he was too much of an epic gamer and epic gamed too hard" was too thin of a premise and they didn't want to waste a good actor('s paycheck) so they added a lot of nonsense and then ultimately said fuck it and hit the reset button on him.
It's a shame because the setup from season 1 had potential but they just didn't know what to do with it. At least Anthony Hopkins got out before the whole thing tanked. He's definitely too old for this shit.

Anyone here watched the new season of Stranger Things? I'm curious to hear some opinions about it. Yeah, it's still anticommunist nonsense, but leaving that aside, I've felt it tried too hard to become serious and just feels melodramatic and shlocky. Also what's up with the writers introducting characters and then just killing them? Feels like wasted potential, especially when the chemistry between the characters is one of the only good things in the show, for no reason other than to show "the stakes are real" as if that were necessary.

You'd think they would have been smart enough to drop the mystery box shit after the first season since the show is no longer about robots becoming self-aware and the reason it worked for that was to make their experience more relatable. The next episode teaser seems to imply they are going to have Bernard and Stubbs in yet another time period (post-apocalyptic future).

Maeve and Caleb just walking right into the new park entrance was fucking retarded. And Maeve tells Caleb to just hand over his phone trust me bro, even though we see in this episode him using it to keep in contact with his friends who are guarding his family….. what could go wrong? At least they have some chemistry unlike Caleb and Dolores, too bad they skipped the several years they were comrades in arms and we're getting Star Wars prequel writing where they're like "hey you remember the time this happened?" instead of letting the audience see it happen.

IDK how they are going to wrap up the show with the half-season left. There's a lot to cover, but they did a good job with BrBa's condensed last season.

 No.26517

>>26515
>IDK how they are going to wrap up the show with the half-season left
I mean the only hanging plot threads left are
1. Lalo, obviously. Could take anywhere between a couple episodes to the rest of the season to finish his part of the story.
2. Kim, she doesn't show up in BB and raised a lot of death flags this past season, so my bets are either she dies next ep or she gets Vacuumed
3. Gene, the last 2 eps or so are enough to provide a conclusion to this, though I really have no clue what this would be besides Jimmy returning to his real persona. What's interesting is we've seen in Kim's flashbacks that she's from Nebraska where Jimmy is hiding now, so maybe the big conclusion is a reunion with her or some kind of closure for Jimmy if she happens to die these next few eps
4. The one throwaway line in Breaking Bad where Saul blames Nacho for something that happened to Lalo now makes absolutely no sense considering Nacho is dead, curious if they're gonna leave that hanging or somehow fix it so it connects to breaking bad nicely.
All in all I think 6 eps is enough

 No.26561

To be fair about point 4, Saul (and possibly Lalo) doesn't know that Nacho is dead so something may happen that someone is gonna pin on Nacho

I feel like if Kim died Jimmy would be too fucked up to successfully be the Saul persona from BrBa. However, maybe he just throws himself into it to cope with her dying. Recent episodes have revealed that some of the defining aspects of Saul were either influenced by Kim or just totally her idea. He might embrace the character because it's something she created for him.

 No.26603

>>26602
I don't think they have to kill her for Jimmy to be distraught about her absence, there was a recent teaser where Kim can be heard testifying before court so maybe the authorities catch both of them with Howard's corpse in their apartment and through some scheme Kim is the one who's sent away to prison and so Jimmy copes by fully embracing Saul Goodman. Maybe even the show will end with Jimmy standing up to the court to clear Kim's name and so he gets arrested instead, maybe not.
