Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Cree McCree
Dismissed by many critics as a poor man's Simpsons, Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy managed to leave its mark on prime-time animation fans, regardless of unfair comparisons. The Griffin clan of Quahog, Rhode Island, gained an avid following during its brief three-season run with choice bits of pop-culture comedy. Beer-gutted patriarch Peter, his long-suffering wife, Lois, and their two moody teens belong to a dysfunctional family tree that bridges the gap between Married...with Children and The Osbournes, thanks in no small part to a pair of uniquely delightful characters: the imperious infant Stewie, who escaped from his mother's "ovarian Bastille" with a full-blown Napoleon complex, and the family pooch, Brian, a jive-talking hepcat trapped in a dog's body. Many of Season 3's funniest episodes revolve around the swingin' canine, who turns porn auteur in "Brian Does Hollywood" and gets addicted to cocaine while on the job as a drug-sniffing dog in "The Thin White Line." Another standout, "Mr. Griffin Goes to Washington," skewers Big Tobacco and shady politicos (and features the voice of former child star turned California gubernatorial candidate Gary Coleman). Special features include the never-aired episode "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein," in which Peter tries to convince his goy-boy to become a successful Jew. With such cool DVD extras, fans who loudly protested the show's cancellation may be moved to shout Stewie's catchphrase: "Victory is mine!"

Family Guy is the best show ever. And anyone who says otherwise is either wrong or a liar....a rotten dirty stinking liar.

If you haven't yet seen an episode of The Family Guy than you haven't truly lived. The animated television phenomenon revolves around the life of an ''average'' family and all of the hilarious adventures they encounter in their everyday lives. Probably the most notable feature of this show is how completely random it is. The jokes are incredibly funny and the show itself is truly entertaining. Be sure you don't pass up on this awesome DVD pack!

The Family Guy is a hilariously funny show, and its a shame it was ever canceled. There are so many one liners from the show that are just priceless. Sometimes you miss them because you may be already laughing at a situation, so be aware these shows should be watched OVER and OVER again! Also if you are from the MA or RI area (as I am) you will find the little regional comments and sight gags wicked funny! Buddy Cianci Junior High :)

The Family Guy was the funniest show that has ever aired on television in my lifetime. It does not get as much credit as cartoons like the Simpson's many because it initially had a cult following, and then FOX changed its night and time of airing routinely during the season. No wonder they didn't get the ratings they wanted. This is a can't miss DVD.

all i have to say is that the family guy is and was the greatest cartoon show ever, and fox made a huge mistake cancelling it.

Here's the deal...it's quite plain and SIMPLE folks...if you love the Simpsons, you MUST check out the Family Guy!

People treated this show like the bast@rd son of Matt Groening, accusing the creators of following the working class nuclear family formula of the Simpsons. Aside from the fact that this formula goes back to the days of The Honeymooners, Seth McFarlane and his team created an entirely different world, and argueably catalyzed into popular humor a new wave of fast, witty, sometimes esoteric- but always hilarious comedy. They took chances, laughed at racism, homophobia, terrorism, religion, and even when you didn't get the joke you laughed. Their following of what appeared at first to be just a Freaks and Geeks band of TV junkies, spread the good news of Peter Griffin and his antics and the world is a better and funnier place for it.

Family Guy is the greatest comedy show in the history of television, bar--none. It is often more clever than Sienfeld, and even more out-there than The Simpsons or even Futerama. And even the commentary tracks are entertaining. Any worthwile DVD collection will have both sets.

I am a die-hard Simpsons fan but I must say The Family Guy knocks them out the box. Alot of jokes will go over the head of some but everybody will find something to love about this series. Maybe one day FOX will get smart and bring it back.

Family guy is possibly the greatest cartoon of all time. It appeals to all audiances(not young children)12 and over. Theres never an episode that will not make you laugh. Take the 'pancakes' episode. You know, the one where meg says stewie is a crack addict and that her deadbeat-husband doent pay for anything. That one, kept me laughing for a full half hours straight. Now, simpsons and futurama are two other excellent cartoons, bur family guy might beat em all. I hope you enjoy Family Guy as much as I did!!!

When this show was aired on Fox, I passed it up as childish and stupid. Now that it is on DVD, I gave it a second look. This show is consistently funny and original. If you are a fan of the shows on Fox's current Sunday lineup...you will love this!

I laughed my butt off while I watched this. It is some of the funniest stuff in the world.

Yes the Simpsons is a very funny show indeed with it's quick wit and humorous antics, but Family Guy has the Simpsons beat. Family Guy has got to be one of the funniest family television shows cartoon or sitcom in history. It's twice as irreverent, twice as witty, and twice as controversial as the Simpsons will ever be. There are similarities between Homer and Peter though; they're both big, fat and stupid, but Peter is practically brainless and he has funnier one-liners than Homer. But unlike the Simpsons, Family Guy has a lot of celebrity and political lampooning, like this episode where Peter makes fun of Dick Armey; Peter says, 'Hey Armey, what's your wife's name, Vagina Coast Guard?' All in all, Family Guy's twisted humor can only be compared to one other cartoon......South Park.

When this series first came out I didn't like it at all. I found it crass & just pointless. After watching the whole first season I realised that it was the sick kind of humor that I like. Cutting edge & new presented in cartoon form. Brilliant! You really have to wonder what the station was thining when it opted to cancel the show not once but twice! Now Mcfarlane is top of the class. I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a great horse laugh.
