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!! Classic satire and Intellectual!

      I love family guy. It speaks the super sick truth of the aspects of life. It's also brings light to our boring reality. It remains hilariously badass every episode. Dear all haters, you're the ones that don't have any originality or talent. So fuck off!! It's shitheads like you that give family guy a bad name. BitchassLosers!! Especially you LaserAlloy and all other haters of Family Guy. Where the hell do you immature mindless shit for brains lowlives have the right to express your lame opinions on adult comedy tv shows? The Griffins Rule!! One of the greatest smartest adult comedies for 18-21 years. Family guy is about a family dealing with the insane psychotic opportunities of every day life. What the hell did you dickheads expected? Their Lives are about coping with surrealism and dysfunctional endless possibilities. Honesty and mayhem is what Family Guy is about. I'm still a Die Hard Fan to this day!! It's based on dark edgy satirical chaos in modern day society. It's supposed to be unexpected. Family Guy Rocks !! People who hate FG are nothing but abused weakminded talentless lifeless fucks that can't take tough criticism themselves and waste their times on the Internet using their bullshit hatred and anger on any cartoons as an excuse to cover up their own shitty lives to understand the smart values and concepts of comedy tv! Haters make me sick! You all suck ass! I hope FG do alot episodes of the griffins beating the shit out of all the haters and that pussy Mr Enter for shitting on Seth all the time just because he wants to express his disgusting animosity towards great cartoons to reflect on his stupid tragic past in which i don't give a flying fuck about to gain alot of sympathy from other Internet trolls that are too emotional unstable. Not to be a cold-hearted jerkass but, I have to be completely sincere about him. He's nothing but a waste of fucking white trash. The reason why I'm saying this is that I really find him so irritating that I should write that mental case a note to tell him to get some real help because he's causing trouble with everyone's favorite cartoons by reflecting his so called miserable childhood on them to get people to feel sorry for him. He belongs in a psychiatric hospital. Family guy is the #1 cartoon that never lost it touch! Assholes that said FG went downhill are the most pathetic sorry ass excuses for fans that I ever saw! Every Family guy characters are very fucking redeemable, especially the six main characters. They are the most creative, imaginative, unique, different, original, and funniest Badass family that makes everything about the new century the shit. Seth MacFarlane the Creator of all 4 of his shows is the best. The Voice actors and actresses are fantastic. The story lines are always randomly on point. All of Seth's shows has been amazing since Larry and Steve in 1995. I wish we had more Family guy 3D Anime episodes, movies, prequels, sequels, trilogies, reboots and timeskip seasons too. For all the true fans of Seth MacFarlane and his Cast. Thank you for loving FG! Family guy stay alive Forever!! Haters are diseased cancerous unintelligent hypocritical brainwashed dicks who can't comprehend the brutal controversial truth that FG had intellectually displayed over the years. Family Guy will always be one of the most ideological shows of our generation. Give it up and get a life haters. Family guy will last forever. Your hateful comments are irrelevant, uninteresting, condescending, and seriously illogical. It's completely ridiculous of you people hating on fictional characters just because you expected good morals and life lessons from every episodes of all cartoon shows which explains how sadly idiotic you nostalgic freaks are. Have you dumbasses learned it's the goddamned 21st century. Even the family guy movie was epic. Constructive cynicism and political incorrection is how family guy is supposed to be. Violently crazy, destructively kickass, and insanely fucked up funny as hell. Family Guy is the best chaotic show of America. It's not like the real world's perfect itself. So fuck off and get laid you pieces of shits. Enough of this Bullshit war already you overly sensitive hicks. Family Guy improved over the years for the better. End of story.moreless
    • Very funny but bring back old writers back

      Every once in awhile what the deuce should be there. Maybe once a as many smartass comments. Not as many cut aways as used to. Still love the show
    • This Show Has Ran Its Course, The Humor Doesn't Work Anymore (Updated)


      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 in 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 (especially with the cutaway gags). 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, this type of formula just does not work, its time to stop! I used to be a big fan of the show, but the writers seem to not care anyways. Its been so many years and the show has not been back on track yet. I recommend any new comer to try to watch some of the older episodes and avoid any modern day episode altogether.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
