Family Guy does have a narrative! I think the story lines are fairly coherent, yeah they're a bit daft, but there's a proper story built in there.

And i don't know how you can criticise Family Guy for not having a narrative when The Ricky Gervais show is just a serious of rants from the man with a head like a fvcking orange! Okay, i love The Ricky Gervais show but my point still stands...

Your point is invalid my friend.

The Ricky Gervais Show isn't meant to have a story line. It is billed as three blokes sitting around talking about stuff.

I just find Family Guy far too scatter shot and deliberately offensive for it's own good. It's more of a sketch show than anything.

Yeah you're right you called me on that one haha.

But I still think Family Guy is one of the best TV shows, has me in absolute tears everytime and I'm pretty picky over my comedy.

Seasons 3-13 are ridiculously good.

I can't pick out a highlight episode because there are too many great ones. Season 5/6 are standouts, though.

Yup, I have those boxsets, don't think there's one bad episode in those seasons.

I believe the title of one of my favorite episodes was "Brother from Another Series." It was the one where David Hyde Pierce played Sideshow Bob's brother. I'm a big fan of Frasier, esp DHP, so I have a soft spot for that episode.

Homer at Bat is one of my all time favourite episodes. So is the one with the Monorail (I call the big one Bitey) and the X-Files themed episode.
