I know that that version of her may be the more popular,but to me,that version also seemed false to me. Like it was just a fantasy version of Meg that semed to say that Meg,as herself, wasn't beautiful all by herself.
It seemed to just perpetuate the rather unfunny notion that she was ugly,which, of course, she isn't.
To that end, I focus on showcasing Meg in my art unchanged by such extremes as that version you mentioned, and showing that natural beauty that she is heir to. For example, the Japanese Meg, which I drew because I found her to be a fascinating version that allows people to see her in the elegant beauty of a traditional Japanese girl.
If you say so. There might be some inelegance in the old school cartoons, but nowadays they are made by a dozen cartoonists with one live brain cell, for example - Family guy, which i might add used to be funny and now it's just... moronic.
I would agree.The paths they decided to take with the characters is nothing short of abysmal. Their need to pander to the lowest common denominator saddens me,because they fail to see the potential in these characters, and so they cheapen them.
I would never go so far as to say that Family Guy has a philosophical point to make, unless said point had something to do with nihilism,which is so unfair to the characters.
Using cruelty and psychological pain as their answer to comedy in the guise of that "philosophy", is the height of being a unimaginative,uninspired hack writer.
To quote a line from my FG fanfiction work in progress:
"Nihilism is just lazy, pessimistic bullshit.Just because it's a "philosophy",doesn't mean it's *truth*."
To tell you the truth i prefer The Cleveland show better not that family guy / american dad offends me, but the humor they use has become sluggish not to mention retarded, whereas cleveland keeps not fresh but something like that
It was part of the continued character deterioration in the show where Meg just went from a normal girl to the series punching bag, same way Chris when from a normal teen to a retard and Stewies homosexuality over-rode his evil genius start.
You nailed it, R-i, The characters have becomes pathetic cartoons of their original selves and the writers don't even seem to try to create stories. It's become 22 minutes of random associations. And the treatment of Meg gas been really disappointing. Sure, the premise may have been that Peter doesn't like his children but it has gone way overboard to psychosis.
