Crossover, Television, The Simpsons

The Simpsons Guy

Honestly, I did not know what to expect from the crossover of Family Guy and the Simpsons. I didn’t like that it started off as a Family Guy episode because I’m more of a Simpsons fan. The beginning started off slowly, and it did become exciting till the Griffins arrived at Springfield. I really enjoyed the writing put into this episode. It seriously made me laugh. There were some parts that I didn’t like such as Peter’s sexist comic in the beginning of the episode, I felt like that part could have been avoided. The crossover really tried to balance both comedic styles from the show, but in some parts it didn’t mesh. The part I most hated was the rape joke…it was so crude…so not cool.I wanted half of the episode to be focused on Family Guy’s perspective on the Simpsons, while the last half focused on the Simpson’s perspective of Family Guy. Now, I really enjoyed the references made in the episode especially during the court case scenario such as comparing characters from the Simpsons and Family Guy, and I loved how Stewie idolized Bart, that really made me laugh more than I thought I would. I’ve read many reviews of people not liking this episode, but I really liked it. It was weird, satirical, and refreshing.

PS: The Simpsons is having a crossover with Futurama! I’m really excited since I’m a fan of Futurama!!! I’ll post the link below:
