    family guy ds episode controversy



    How many people seen this episode and found it offensive.

    Please do not turn this in to a political debate.

    I saw the episode and though I thought it was edgy, I come to expect that from family guy. I notice it has been getting alot of airtime.

    Yep it was edgy but on par with what loyal fans like myself expect (and want) to see... anyone that has a problem with it shouldn't watch it... there is still "Freedom of Speech" in this country and that INCLUDES the right to say things others may find offensive. They have the ability to change the channel.

    Classic Family Guy. You know what you signed up for when you watch it. Personally I'm still laughing.

    saw it, didnt offend me. i dont think anyone who regularly watches family guy will get offended by any subject matter the writers decide to tackle. i would venture to say that the only people who are really offended, were offended at the first mention of down syndrome as a subject matter for a family guy episode. (as in family guy as a whole offends them, not only their take on down syndrome.)


    ps, i know were not supposed to talk politics on this forum, but its going to be pretty hard to not skirt the topic discussing this subject.
    Current Phone: Galaxy Nexus; running smooth and with no complaints, thanks to dev Peter Alfonso. Keep up the good work.
    Previous Phone: Droid (OG); unceremoniously dumped into the nightstand (I feel as if I should place it onto a wooden barge, set it afloat and light her on fire...).
    Phone Before That: Doesn't matter.

    Vintage Family Guy.

    By no means would I consider this any where near the list of "offensive" things Family Guy has done. LOL

    I don't even see what could have been offensive about that clip? Or was there more to it than that? He mentioned down syndrome in the song, but they weren't really making fun of it?

    I don't even think they took it as far as they could have. My opinion is that is was pretty mild. I think they held back. Hell, Chris was made more fun of than the DS girl.

    As a matter of fact they didn't really make fun of her at all if you think really think about it. Well....there was the one comment by stewie about her eyes.

    What about the "Peter has a Stroke" episode where Peter has a stroke?

    ...or the episode "Gayness"

    ..."Peter Becomes Retarded"


    (This could go on endlessly)
    It's what Family Guy does.... and why it's hilarious.
