This perfectly summarizes why I love the Simpsons and hate Family Guy. 

Yup.

So this.

I watched that episode with my family and I could just feel how uncomfortable everyone was. Honestly, it was a really jarring, unpleasant episode.

Homer is a terrible dad. So is Peter. But Homer’s saving grace has always been that he tries—he’s bad at it and he fucks it up a lot, but he loves his family and he wants to be better than he is.

One of my favorite Homer moments is in “Diatribe of a Mad Housewife.” Tl;dr Marge writes a steamy romance novel starring herself and Ned, and when Homer finds out, he chases down Ned and, rather than attack him, asks him to teach him how to be a better husband.

There’s some part of his stupid self that wants to do better.

I never got that impression with Peter. Instead, the family has gotten more and more abusive towards Meg. It’s really unsettling for me when I started realizing that’s what happens sometimes in abusive families. Abusers sometimes single out one child to abuse, and quite often the other family members take the abuser’s side. After all, it’s easier to side with an abuser than to run the risk of becoming the target yourself.

There’s never really a point where it seems like Peter cares at all that his shitty behavior impacts his family. It actually seems to have gotten worse over the years. He expects everyone to clean up his messes because that’s always what happens; there’s really no reason for him not to be shitty.

And it’s easy to see how Meg is affected. She doesn’t have much of a character, really, because so much her screen time is devoted to being abused. The bits of character development all seem to hinge on her being this sad, neglected person who’s trying her best but never really gets any help from anyone. Quite the opposite; there have been a lot of episodes where her family sabotages any attempts to be herself.

It can be easy to forget how awful this behavior is when the only context is the show itself (frankly, everyone on Family Guy is kind of terrible). Seeing it played against the Simpsons, who are a flawed and dysfunctional but ultimately loving family, was painful to watch.

This perfectly sums up why I don’t like Family Guy.

I agree with you. But honestly, I think you’re taking it too serious..

Its just a tv show, its not meant to build up some sort of story thats of any matter, its just there to give people empty laughs. There are some (alike myself) who enjoy seeing some fucked up humor every once in a while. And still knowing “its just- a joke” i mean no complains about how Kenny from South Park’s family is abusive, or horrible parents. No one talks about how Cartman’s mom’s parenting is shitty. Or how Gingers or practically anything, gets bashed on. But Family guy is the bad guy? It’s not terrorism or anything, its just a tv show, and Meg isn’t real. And if anything takes offense to it, perhaps its just as the same as the people who take truth in this show, and reflect it on their personal lifes and thinks its ok to bully people. I honestly dont think there are people who are influanced by this show at all, and if they are? Gosh, who pays attention to these close minded and dumb people anyway?

But the show promotes abuse. One episode, I forget the name, but it’s where Meg finally stands up to her a abusers and it makes them cry with the realisation that everything what Meg said was truthful. Then, after a quick talk with Brian, Meg feels bad for making her abusers cry and says that her family need someone to beat on to stay okay. ((They aren’t okay in the first place, Meg pointed that out herself and yet she still felt bad.)) So, she decides to stay in an abusive relationship with her family because they need to abuse someone and if it isn’t her then it’s Chris or Stewie. Brian says that it’s noble of her to stay in a relationship like this. So she apologises. Then at the end, Stewie comes up to the screen and practically says “if you want to know about drugs, just try them.” Because their other plot was Brian getting an addiction to Magic Mushrooms and having a ‘bad trip’. And he doesn’t mention the domestic abuse because it’s just for comedy. It’s not good or noble to stay in an abusive relationship, it’s not bad to go to the police about it and it’s not bad to stand up to the abuser.
There’s also another episode where Peter turns into a pedophile, don’t get me started on that one…

Again, i agree with you, I know exactly which episode you mean.

Still I stick to my opinion though. It doesnt shock me family guy offend some people, but i often wonder thats the whole reason for the damn show to be on; make people laugh about situations that obviously hardly happen or not at all, happen in RL. I mean think about it : ‘)

Its just a stupid show, again: stupid.
It has no depth, no relation to anything remotely realistic, aside from the fact they take a cliché and completely overreact with it. And yes go overboard.

In a rl situation this would really not be ok. But, sadly, if you dont like it. Just dont watch it? I hope you’re not offended or anything. But in my opinion, its too far sought. (as in i think you care too much) but, im not gonna stop anyone from expression their opinion, im just stating mine.
