Show Summary

Sick, twisted, politically incorrect and freakin' sweet. The animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Peter and Lois have three kids - the youngest is a brilliant, sadistic baby bent on killing his mother and world domination. Chris, like his father, is obese, has a low IQ and no common sense. Meg desperately tries to be part of the popular crowd, and is coldly rebuffed. Their talking dog Brian keeps baby Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting out his own life issues. After being canceled in 2002, having an outstanding performance in DVD sales and syndication ratings that beat late-night talk shows, its cult status reached great heights. As a result, the series was added back to the FOX Summer 2005 line-up. Family Guy returned to the small screen with new episodes on Sunday, May 1st, 2005. A DVD Movie was released in September of 2005. Family Guy has won 3 Emmy awards and 3 Annie awards.

    • Awesome and hilarious!! Decent entertainment!!

      Love family guy. It speaks the truth of the aspects of life. It's also brings light to reality. It remains funny every episode. Dear all haters, you're the ones that don't have any originality or talent. So piss off!! It's people like you that give family guy a bad name. Losers!! Especially you LaserAlloy and all other haters of Family Guy. The Griffins Rule!! One of the greatest smartest adult comedies since 17 years ago. Family life isn't perfect. Honesty is what Family Guy is about. I'm still a Die Hard Fan to this day!! It's based on dark edgy satire in modern day society.moreless
    • Unbearable!

      It used to be funny. However, I can now agree that American Dad is the superior show. I hope Family Guy gets cancelled before too long.
    • This show is an nothing more than a cancer.

      If you want to see what show started the trend of people make terrible shows, especially animated ones, look no further than THIS one. I. HATE. THIS. SHOW. with every fiber of my being.

      It's not funny, it's not creative. It's not even clever. It's just horribly made, horribly offensive and lazy as heck.

      And the characters? Other than Meg and maybe Lois, they all should be shot or put in a mental institution. They are sick bastards who are a poison to audiences everywhere.

      Stewie? That kid needs to be locked up in a padded cell and never let out. Who in their right mind thought it was funny to see him kill his Mom? No seriously, WTF is wrong with you?! I don't care if it wasn't real. It doesn't change the fact he is a disturbing psychopath.

      Quagmire, or whatever the heck his name is. That guy should be castrated and put in jail. There is nothing funny about a pervert, especially one who is as vile as he is.

      And don't even get me started on Peter Griffin. This guy is one of the worst, if not THE WORST male characters in the history of cinema. He is cruel, sadistic, uncaring, selfish, and just flat out a horrible monster.

      It'd be one thing if he was a villain, then his behavior would be more justified. But he's not. He's supposed to be the father of the main cast, and he's just sick. He even laughed at his how daughter when she confronted him about his abuse. I was like, "You sick SOB!"

      If any fictional character deserved brutal torment before being killed, it is him. Peter Griffin IMHO is the WORST father character ever.

      Ugh, I'm rambling on now... all I can say now is, Seth Mcfarlane, I despise you with every fiber of my being. It's because of you we have this abomination, and because of you, other shows are now copying it.

      You have forever shamed the name of cinema with your filth as far as I'm concerned,, and I hope you go down in history as one of the most reviled people of creators of animated shows. YOU. SICKEN. ME.moreless
    • This Show Has Ran Its Course, The Humor Doesn't Work Anymore


      It was a really funny show, the last seasons have been lacking in humor though. Family Guy should have retired with positive nostalgia while it was still on top, now every season its reputation shrinks more and more and its too late. It's humor is massively stretched now and the producers seem to just copy and paste older gags into the plots of recent episodes. They continued to follow this trend with there recent seasons without noticing that even using those older gags over and over makes the show less enjoyable. So even when they don't do that they go overboard on the shock humor and it can't even be called "shock humor" anymore because they will somehow make it overly disturbing than it has to be, it does not work anymoremoreless
    • I don't care what everyone says, I still like the show!

      FG is a great show too. One of its spinoffs, American Dad, was great, the other spinoff, The Cleveland Show, it was okay. But anyways Family Guy is a great show. I really like the characters, the cutaway gags, everything. It was a little sad that Brian died, however I heard that he returned in future episodes. Anyways, this is a great show and I don't care about the bullshit about the new eps, I still like them. It is a great show. I don't write the plot because everyone knows that.moreless
