| Some stuff that sucks

Family Guy. It's a cheap ripoff of the Simpsons. All the characters are so lame, yes even the baby. But I think what makes it unwatchable for me is the voice acting. All the voices are so whiny. None of the characters are sympathetic, and the main character is just mean enough to be annoying, but not so over the top that it's funny. The biggest problem I have is the plots. It's like regular sitcom plots, but without enough extra gags to make it worthwhile. Some people can watch a show and ignore the plot and just see the gags, but I can't. I bet I'm not the only one, either.|
Also, I think it doesn't help that it's drawn like the daily funnies.
That style of drawing individual breasts on animated women. And not the full cleavage ones like on anime. Reference Miss Keane on Powerpuff Girls. Is there any real need for her to have individual small breasts drawn on her shirt? Is it funny, and I'm just not seeing it? Because it just looks stupid to me. As if they felt it necessary to put them there, just in case you thought she was a man. That isn't the only show that does that, either.
If you look at cartoon history, you'll note that women have not had individual breasts unless they are large-breasted women. It's sufficient to show the shape of a woman to convey the concept of woman. Perhaps that is what is so stupid, the cartoons with individual breasts just drawn on there do not show any shape whatsoever. It's like the artist can't figure out how to draw the shape of a woman, so just draws a random shape and slaps some Cs on there for breasts.
Have I said the word breast enough times?
