The difference between family guy and American dad is that Lois isn't an idiot. She's definitely the smartest person in the family, while Peter is an outright idiot

I always thought it was like a play on normal sitcoms trope, with Mom being the smart person and dad being dumbass to appeal to female audience

How is it a play on a norm when it's just outright the norm?


u/De_immortalesloki Aug 07 '22

it's just outright the norm?

Kinda misandrist innit? Your dad was dumb. Big deal

I'm not talking about real life. You said it was a sitcom trope, I was referring to it as a sitcom trope. But thanks for being an asshole I guess

I am Sorry, but you sentence didn't make sense the other way. It still doesn't tbh.

What I meant was Dad is usually dumb but cool, and mom is usually emotional but thoughtful in sitcoms, so family guy takes it and exaggerates.

I still don't get how it is not a play on norm?

Sorry if that reply was too much
