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.

  • MacFarlane has sold way out!

    1.0
    MacFarlane has sold way out! His show has just turned into every other show! It is nothing but dumbed down trendy idiot propaganda now! That is the best way I can describe it, without going into deep detail. And I do not feel like wasting anymore of my time explaining why a crappy show stinks! Thank you!
  • This Show Has Ran Its Course, The Humor Doesn't Work Anymore

    4.0
    PLEASE UNDERSTAND WHAT I AM SAYING!

    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 anymore.moreless
  • Great show. Really funny. Way better than new Simpsons. Reminds me of Simpsons in its classic seasons.

    9.0
    Come on guys, whats wrong with you? You all really need a sense of freakin humor for cryin out loud.

    This show is really funny & its way better than those boring ass newer episodes from The Simpsons.

    Yes, Family Guy did go sort of downhill, but episodes from 2013-present are still leaving people in stitches.

    Family Guy is not afraid to push the edge of the acceptable boundaries. Jokes about Michael J Fox's high profile battle with Parkinson's disease have caused public anger (these people really need a sense of humor), but the show continues.

    The Griffins and their aqquaintiences are really funny in their own ways.

    Peter Griffin is hilarious, he is on a tie with Homer Simpson. Lois, being a nagging wife and mom still manages to be funny at times, Chris , being an idiot has his moments, Meg sucks tho although everyone's treatment to her can be hilarious at times- for example, whenever Peter yells Shut up Meg! Everybody laughs and in the Star Wars parodies she is shown as some kind of gross monster , and Stewie & Brian are pure comedy gold especially when they go on their foreign Sci-fi adventures together.

    Quagmire is frighteningly predatory in his sexual advances, and Joe makes consistent jokes about the inability of his legs to work, & when he disagrees with something he yells and it never fails to make you laugh. Cleveland may be a bit tasteless but that doesn't effect the shows clever humor. Mayor West, oh my God he's the man. He's played by and based on his real identity (Adam West obviously) but in a cartoonish manner. They even have James Woods as a character for Gods sake.

    The cutaway gags are underrated, seriously. Even Trey Parker & Matt Stone (creators of South Park) bashed these. Come on, there just jealous. Without their amazing cutaway gags, the show wouldn't be anywhere near as original and comical. Rather than simply saying "oh no,we're done for and its all my fault" Family Guy has a tendency to say something like "this is worse than that time I saw Michael Jacksons groin treatment dance (cuts away to Michael Jackson slapping his groin, hitting it with wood and even shooting it while he still dances on stage) . Absolutely brilliant.

    The success of Family Guy lead Seth MacFarlane and his writers to produce successful films such as the Ted films and Million Ways to Die in The West, and I highly reccomend them for any fan of this show.



    I think FOX should pass the torch to Family Guy as todays most successful animated sitcom on FOX. The Simpsons were better than Family Guy at a long point, but that's long over. Go watch a Simpsons episode from season 18 and beyond then watch a Family Guy episode, then compare the humor and see what I mean.moreless
