This also occurs on a regular basis.
There is a character/relationship factor that draws me to Family Guy. I'm not sure why I think that but I have reason to believe it's based off of awkward or doomed relationships. We look at Brian (the dog) with his relationship with his dense girlfriend. We know behind the scenes that this cannot work sexually. At least not very well. When I watch this isn't a prominent notion; though it is in the back of my mind. It sort of draws me to failed heroes in more maturer stories. Like Boromir from Lord of The Rings. The Romeo and Juliet story. Love that's doomed to exist but does despite the knowledge. I don't know. This is a rambling.
