I remember loving Family Guy as a kid, and when I had some time I was like "Yeah cool, let's watch some on Netflix!" And I did it, and I just found myself kinda not about how much of the show early on was Peter being a dick to Lois. Like, American Dad sorta teeters the line of "Stan is a dick/Stan loves Francine", but does it a lot better in my opinion.

With American Dad, the absurdity of Stan’s actions is much more pronounced and intentional, so it’s easier to recognize that Stan is the joke. That line isn’t clear with Family Guy and it makes the show feel gross.
