Re: The tv show (family guy)

LOL - That would explain so much! I truly think there are many writers out there who have ADHD and I feel the ADHD is what gives them their edge.

Who knows. I know MacFarlane says he smokes the herb though. And that sure as heck explains a lot.

Re: The tv show (family guy)

Re: The tv show (family guy)

I've not seen very much of it but I think I know what you mean.

I don't understand the poll though.

Re: The tv show (family guy)

I. . . .I have all the family guy dvd's. . . . and i'm in my 30's.

I don't know why anyone thinks Seth McFarlane would have ADD, but he's bloody funny!

Re: The tv show (family guy)

Some of the jokes on family guy, I've commited in my real life. I just don't take anything very seriously. Including myself.
On a note though, Seth says hes most life Brain in real life. Brain is a INTP'ish personality. So I've come to the conclusion that Seth must be INFP or INFJ(the added feeling function would of led him to make the decision to pursue cartoon making as a career). INFP's ecspecially (as opposed to T's & J's) are prone to being a little 'Attention defeict'. Infact I bet the majority of all the inattentives in the forums would be an infp personality. Why is this all relitive? Because no one can beat the infp humourous imagination.

Re: The tv show (family guy)

I know it's a closed poll, but I would have chose 'Other' in regard to the seldom seen Cleveland Jr character; always running about and bouncing around haphazard, constant verbal stream, ludicrously fast focus switching.

Cleveland (in regard to Cleveland Jr): "I sometimes wonder if he got the epilepsy, then I think I'll go see what's on the Tv..."

Re: The tv show (family guy)

I know what you mean.

And Family Guy is EPIC!! Me and my brother are always quoting stuff from it!

Love it so much! Stewie is the best!

And as for Herbert the Pervert...

Re: The tv show (family guy)

I would have voted Brian if I could, because that's how I picture my dog to be. The wise, sometimes know-it-all, sage who still goes and gets into extremely wacky and ridiculous situations.

P.S. I don't think Seth has ADHD, but I think Peter Griffin does.


Example:

Peter: Well, I'm gettin' something really special too. And by special I don't mean special like that Kleinaman boy down the street. More special like... like Special K, the cereal. Hey, what do they do with the regular K? And for that matter, what ever happend to K. Ballard? You know, if you said mallard and you had a cold, it would sound like ballard.

Brian: Do you listen to yourself when you talk?

Peter: I drift in and out.


Another example:

Peter: Oh my god, Brian, there's a message in my Alphabits. It says, 'Oooooo.'

Brian: Peter, those are Cheerios.
