It's the battle of the dads: Homer Simpson vs. Peter Griffin.
I watch both The Simpsons and Family Guy every day when I come home, and the comparison was inevitable.
My personal take: Peter has more self-confidence and positive attitude than Homer, but Homer tries harder and cares more. Homer seems to have awareness of his flaws, almost to the point of hating himself. Peter never seems to have a self-deprecating moment. Homer strangles Bart, but would never lay a hand against Lisa. Peter regularly slugs Meg. Both are not the greatest parents of all time. But, which one is a better dad?
