Anybody else watch Family Guy? If so when the hell did they change the poeple who do most of the voices and why (Meg and Brian bother me the most, they're just not right)

The principal voice actors have never changed, however there was a gap of several years between seasons 3 and 4 (due to the show's cancellation and subsequent resurrection), after which it did have a slightly different look and feel, IMO.

It's weird b/c the last two episodes I've seen Meg, Brian, and Lois all sound different, everyone else is the same but those three are completely different.

I'm disappointed with the amount of reruns they show. It seems like the same damn episode is on week after week.

Which two episodes? Remember that most primetime TV shows (including FG) are on summer hiatus right now. We're still in the gap between S6 and S7 until the fall.

AFAIK, Brian has always been Seth McFarlane (the creator, who also does Peter, Stewie, and a couple others) and Meg has always been Mila Kunis, who plays Jackie on That 70's Show.

Yup, id have to agree with Joe. Same people.

The newer episodes have the characters voices more "evolved" because they have been doing them so long. As compared to the first episodes where everyone sounded a little more awkward.

I just spent all morning watching a VH1 special on Gwen Stefani. I don't know what a Hollaback girl is. All I know is that I want her dead.

Actually thats not true, Meg was played by Lacey Chabert before Mila.

Well I'll be damned, you're right. I just saw that Mila went back to '99 (the first season) and never realized there was a split.

(re-checks facts quickly)

Well, I'm pretty sure that Brian hasn't changed anyway...

That explains it then....Meg was completely different and Brian just sounded a little weird (like 3-4 years different in someone's voice) What about Lois though, was I imagining it?

Are you agreeing or something? They don't show simpsons reruns nearly as much, and thats also thanks to the fact they made a million episodes.

Don't forget Seth Green is the voice of Chris. I'm a hardcore Family Guy fan. Has anyone elsenoticed sinced they syndicated family guy and put it on regular TV, they cut out some of the more offensive parts? I don't know if they did that to stuff in more commercials but one episode I know off the top of my head is where Stewie pulls down his pants to moon a Santa Claus Christmas ornament. They don't show it on the syndicated episodes but it's still there on the Fox and Cartoon network episodes. There are other examples, I can't think of them right now.

I think the show has gone down hill. They seem like they are trying to hard. The early episodes are hilarious, but lately they are just meh.
