Family Guy is an animated sitcom created by Seth MacFarlane.
It was considered as one of the most popular animated sitcoms of all time. However, since 2008, PhantomStrider (along with many others) has a strong grudge against the show and thinks it's one of the absolute worst cartoons of all time due to horribly unlikable characters (Peter's a psychopathic father, Brian's an unsympathetic and arrogant jerk, and Meg's the literal definition of the family's "punching bag"), unnecessary black comedy (domestic violence jokes, handicapped jokes, and Peter being instructed how to kill himself by slitting his wrists in full detail), and the fact that the "professional" writers are thoughtless enough to allow all of this stuff on television. So PhantomStrider finds the humor nowadays completely unforgivable and has absolutely no respect for Seth MacFarlane for these reasons given.
