When they run out of ideas or don't care (at least it seems) Family Guy has Brian and Stewie time traveling! Enough allready! That idea has grown old! Very old! I want to see fresh ideas! Not ideas rehashed over and over! Family Guy used to funny but lately the fun has disppeared! If Seth McFarlene keeps this up,Family Guy won't last much longer! I don't want to see that!

Family Guy...Oh man, I am super surprised that this show has lasted as long as it has, with all of that stupid humor. I mean, I enjoy it to a sense, but it can be so annoying at times that I can't watch it. Something that bothers me about Family Guy is a lot of their "humor" is basically just repeating the same thing for a long time. And that's funny because it's so random when you see it the first time. (Such as for example, Peter falling over and laughing. And laughing. And laughing. For an extended amount of time. So much to the point that it's ridiculous, and therefore, I guess A LITTLE funny in a random sort of way). Anyway, when you see it over and over again, it's just not funny. I haven't noticed the time travel thing. You're right though, Seth must be running out of ideas. Maybe like what I talked about, he thinks repetition is funny.

It is not just the time travel. Stewie is changing and I really don't like it! He is whimpy now and gay! The gay thing is funny but I still want to see him really rule the world and try to kill Lois! That is the Stewie I love! I wish Meg would get some respect but that will never happen! Peter,at times,seems to be dumper then he used to be! Someone mentioned The thing between Quagmire and Brian. That is also getting old! I wish both would just get over with it and be friends! I think Seth is so busy with an over load of projects he is forgetting Family Guy! If he doesn't get back on track soon the show will be canceled! I hope it won't happen for along time!

Out of the recent seasons there have been maybe a handful of episodes I really enjoy. To me Peter is getting on my nerves with how he is it seems like he's gotten even more stupid and treating his friends and family like crap worse than ever. If I was Lois I would've been long gone by now. Also what is up with this whole Brian and Quagmire tension all the time. What's with what seems like Brian's constant womanizing. I mean does he really want a relationship or just to screw around with a woman he finds attractive and dump them when they get on his nerves? Please Seth pick. I love Stewie regardless, but I think what did in his evil streak is meeting his older self and seeing what a pansy he'd become. I thought well he's gonna change that, but instead he's falling in line to become that pansy. I love the show, but there's nothing making me want to rush to make sure I catch the first premiere of a new episode anymore. Am I the only one or can we watch an entire episode and maybe only chuckle once lately? Seth Please fix the show!

I agree Peter is is getting dumber and dumber! If Lois left they would have to cnacel it for sure! I don't get this thing bewteen Brian and Quagmire! I think it is stupid and both need to get over it! Brian is a womanizer and he can't get over losing Jillian! The dumb @ss had a good thing going and blew it! I think that is one reason he is always sleeping around! Stewie is changing and I don't like it! Now he is a pansey as you say and we know he is also gay! The time travel is old and I hope Seth fixes the show soon or there will be no more Family Guy in no time flat!

This is very true ! but i still like the show. Just that when the episodes with time travel like you said. But there's one thing that actually make me less enjoy the show is that Stewie is growing up and there's not much evil in him as he is at the beginning of family guy show. If you actually playing attention he has change so much and i think he's gone too soft now. And i mean it, toooo soft !

Stewie as you say is growing up. I still don't like it! I feel Seth McFarlene and the other writers need to come up with better ideas! I am getting sick of it! It seems like every other episode is about time travel! Stewie used to want to rule the world and kill Lois! Now all he wants to do is time travel and figure out if he is gay or not! He is! I still love the show but if the time travel episodes keep up I will stop watching it!

As to me, I have to confess that I do enjoy the show though I don't really follow every episode. But when I am watching it, I still think that the show is full of fantasy and imagination, which amuses me a lot. People will easily get bored if the setting of the story is all the same without a slight change, don't they? That is why in the end of one season, some show, like friends, would have scenes that characters travel to another place so that we audience can have a different view of the story. Time travelling means the story can happen in a different place, different era, different anything or even everything. They have to do it.

I still watch Family Guy and some episodes are very funny! Stewie's last time travel was very funny and I wish his time traveling,with Brian or not,would be more like that! I think the show is not going anywhere and as long as it is good I will still watch it!

Well, it seems as though that is what Family Guy's audience likes the most, which is probably why the producers keep on making time travel episodes. I thought that the first time travel episode was actually pretty good, but I agree with you, now that idea is starting to get kinda old.

It was funny when they did ot once or twice. It started losing its luster after that! Family Guy is a great show! I just don't want to see it get worse and end up being canceled! I would have only "Bob's Burgers" to watch on sunday night! I am not a big fan of the "Cleveland show" and "American Dad" has lost its luster!

I hope that since it has a pretty good start, it goes to end decently. However, it is not easy. People have feelings about the show. Without the accompany of family guy, life of the staff or the audience can be different, no matter good or not. What's more, the company will hardly give up the show if it can still gain reputation and money for the company. The same thing happens to supernatural. The first five seasons of supernatural are my favorite. Look now! Stories are getting boring and I can't find its luster any more!

The time travel episode wasn't the greatest, but I did like the multi-verse episode. Where they travelled around different universes. The most recent one involving time travel wasn't great. It seemed to be a lot of old pieces put together, then mix in some new stuff. So it wasn't entirley that creative.

I did like the time traveling one were Stewie and Brian in traveled to different universes,too. Now it is so redundent that Seth MacFarlene has run out of ideas and so have his writers! The last time traveling episode was by far the worst,yet! I hope there is no more!

Yeah I know what you mean. It seems they run out of ideas, and they just use filler to make an episode. In some episodes they have Conoway Twitty playing for like 5 minutes straight. Um, I want to watch Family Guy, not CT. They should really think hard about new ideas, before they have to resort to filler, which it seems to me is becoming more common.

I personally can't get enough of the time travels and the Brian and Stewie episodes, but I have to admit I think Family Guy should have ended a long time ago...

I don't have a TV and have been trying to keep up on Family Guy through Hulu. I also have a friend who asked that we watch the episode when Brian and Stewie time travel. I asked, "Which one?? There are several!" Haha! They have been doing it a lot, but can I add: "Let's get some NEW movie and TV ideas and stop remaking old ones!!!"?
