So I used to love this show when it debuted in '99 (mostly because it was a more foul Simpsons, and to an twelve year old, the more uncouth, the more funny). As my mind evolved, so too did my sense of humor, and my tastes were more Christopher Guest movies and David Cross stand-up than jokes about flatulence and man boobs.

However, the season four dvd was on sale for $15 (normally $30) at Target, and for some reason, I gravitated toward the sale. Now I fully admit that Seth McFarlane's writing is extremely formulaic: excessively-extended gags, paper-thin (if existent) plots that just string together random, obscure pop-culture references, vaudevillian musical numbers, an overabundance of fat/fart jokes, ect.

However, there is something charming about this show, and made it worth the $15 (but I wouldn't pay $30, nor will I go out of my way to catch the show on television).

You lose your emo credibility. You should only like teardrops and razorblades.

Like it's some sort of horrible thing to enjoy Family Guy. Jesus.

There's nothing wrong with liking Family Guy. Jesus, it used to be a geek cred show, now suddenly it's become scarlett-lettered because Hot Topic kids watch it too.

Seriously. It is now some sort of a leprosy to like Family Guy. Like if they admit it they'll be stoned in the street. I don't recall the commandment that says you can't enjoy whatever fucking cartoon you want.

Season Four is definitely the weakest of the discs so far, sadly.

Calm down, chief. I was joking. Deep breaths. You'll survive.

Really? Because every time I go into Hot Topic, they've still got a shitload of it's merchandise lining the walls.

So Venture Brothers will be uncool to like in six months, got it.

So Hot Topic merchandising makes things uncool? Um, stop reading comics then.
