I used to love it and never, ever missed an episode. Watched episodes over and over again even. Until they made an episode that was just horrible about the troops.
Now, don't get me wrong. They've bashed the south, I'm a southerner. I was fine with it. Laughed right along.
They bashed Catholicism; laughed right along.
Bashed plenty things that hit home and I laughed right along. I think I've got a pretty good sense of humor.
But when they made an episode that portrayed the military as idiots that signed up for the opportunity to go overseas and kill innocent people, including children, that was it for me. The people that put their lives on the line to keep me safe are off limits in my world when it comes to poking fun, especially something like that. I just can't tolerate such open hatred of our military. And it's the US. The brave men and women in this country go over there willingly to protect the rights of people that want to bash them, so I'm not saying they shouldn't be allowed to do it. I'm saying I won't support it. So, since that episode aired, Family Guy has been off limits in our household.
But that's just me.....
