    Actually, this is why I love South Park. Family Guy feels kind of... doing it for the sake of doing it and not really doing anything other than that. With South Park, it's the exact same thing - only unlike Family Guy which seems to want to achieve something, South Park just doesn't give a [REDACTED]. They don't care what you think, they just do it anyway. Family Guy is a popular show, but I don't see why. Maybe the newer episodes aren't as good as the old ones, not sure. Haven't watched it that much because I don't really care.

    South Park though, has remained a great show since its conceptions. On occasion, there'll be a 'meh' episode or scene (not a big fan of bathroom humor so I typically dislike it in the show) but for the most part keeps afloat and stays the show it's always been. I'll be honest, I don't usually laugh during South Park. But I don't care because laughter isn't the only thing that makes a show. South Park is a good show.

    Dunno if I've made any since. I usually never do. But anyways... Hey! I think I'll go watch some South Park!

    I don't know why you always say you never make any sense. You articulate very well.

    But, if I do that then he REALLY won't make sense.

    I've never really seen South Park but family guy is really funny. You may not agree but it's my sort of humor

    I liked it until season 8. Then it became obvious that Fox was milking Seth MacFarlane for all his worth.

    But that's another subject for another day.

    Yeah, Seth has actually been wanting to end Family Guy for years, but FOX won't let him. Unfortunately, this is another example of corporate influence: if Seth held the rights to his own creation, he probably could have ended it when he felt it was time, but since FOX owns the rights, they call all the shots.

    Thought of the week video is finally up. Curious to know your reactions of Matt's peformance of Kermit.

    I'm sorry, but this is going to take a while to get used to...

    It's . . . okay. I'm not sure if it's nerves, or if Matt's tired, or what, but the overall performance seemed kind of listless.

    With all my respects to Matt, who is an excellent performer....his Kermit voice sucks... Its Constantine, not Kermit.

    I'm mixed..

    He has the mannerisms down and the little chuckle was great

    but I feel like Kermit's voice went from high pitch to DEEP.

    I don't know guys..I really don't know.

    Wow, I was not expecting this news today.

    Obviously this is Matt's first time playing Kermit, so I won't judge it yet, and neither should anybody else. Matt is going to grow into the role, just like Steve did. Don't forget, Steve's first performance was kind of meh too. Heck, even Jim continued to evolve the character over time. It took Ryan Dillon a while to get the hang of Elmo, but now I can't imagine anyone else taking over from Kevin. He will get better! Just the fact that he's already showing potential is a great sign that he can only get better from here. The mannerisms and attitude of a character are far more important than the voice, and even the voice will improve over time. Seriously guys, there's no reason to worry just yet.

    Excellent! Sounds more like the original Jim Henson!
