Oh man, I love Futurama. I can't stand shows like Family Guy and American dad. I think Seth McFarlane is funny enough, but it's clear that he doesn't care about those shows at all anymore lol.
I also really like South Park. I know it's crass as all get out, but I love it. I've been watching it since I was a little kid >_<
I have to confess that I'm not a Seth McFarlane fan at all. Crouton already knows this and we've bitched about it a few times now. I guess what bothers me about his brand of "humour" is that it's very much frat boy level, dudebro, pop culture riffing with what I swear must be a misogynistic undercurrent. Not my cup of tea at all. Well, at least that's how I see it. I can appreciate that I'm in the minority on this one though, and that many folks out there do genuinely enjoy it, so kudos to McFarlane for at least bringing merriment to the world.
As for South Park, it's not really my cup of tea either (and pretty much for the reason you mentioned), but I do respect what Trey Parker and Matt Stone have achieved with this. Whenever I have watched an episode of this, not only are their points pretty much on the money, they're at least making a point. Of course, that doesn't necessarily negate what McFarlane is doing, but I find I have zero tolerance for his stuff whereas I can at least sit through an ep of South Park and still get something out of it.
Well I bought the X-Men cartoon ultimate collection DVD some months ago and I started watching it.
Unfortunately there are no moden cartoons that I'm watching.Mostly because TV channels here aren't what they used to be.They only have a few cartoon programs and even during the weekends they just show a bit of them and just a handful of channels. But I really wish I could wake up in the morning and find Ben 10 or Generation Rex on TV.
During the early and mid 90s and even a part of the late 90s,every weekend was a kid and/or teenagers fest here.Because the big channels would start showing cartoons from around 6.00 am to 12.00 or 13.00 and then changing to shows like Goosebumps or Xena etc.Continuing up until about 18.00 to 19.30 with series like Highlander,Babylon 5,Star Trek Deep Space Nine,Seaquest...etc.
