  • i LOVE this show

    this show is amazing! it's a little offensive at times, but it's morely concerned around adult humor and teenagers like me love this stuff.
    i loved the episode where peter and louis go on vacation and they break into a hotel room as an imposter. it shows later on where louis tells peter: "peter the toilet paper is made of money!" then he tells her that they also have high class british porn and it shows it (there's no sex scenes) LMFAO! that's hilarious! then later on, he watches it again cause he feels like louis isn't attracted to him anymore and another clip comes up and that one is even funnier. "you know we could be having sexual intercourse right now! oh yes we could! ooh but let's not...."
    LMFAO!! funny stuff guys so 10/10 for this show. keep it up fox!
  • Exciting, funny and offensive to everyone!

    I became a fan of this show at the beginning of 2008. I thought it was hilarious. What makes this show so stupid is the number of pointless cutaways that have nothing to do with the story whatsoever.

    It focuses on a dysfunctional family called the Griffins. The main charactor, Peter, is the fat, drunken, TV loving father who always has a crazy plan to get out of a sticky situation. Living with his wife Lois, His son Chris, His daughter Meg who he has a dislike for, His talking baby son Stewie, and his talking dog Brian.

    This show got cancelled in 2002, but was revieved after strong DVD sales, and that's is a good thing, especially for the fans who were devistated by the show's cancellation.

    To be honest, I do think that old episodes are funnier than the more recent episodes, however after watching a few episodes of Season 7, I really think they are getting back on track.

    Many people think this show is a rip-off of The Simpsons, but I disagree. Sure it has a fat, drunk father, two kids hat fall out with each other or a family dog, but the show isn't a COMPLETE rip-off of The Simpsons.

    Some people may not like this show due to frequent cutways, or the offensive jokes, but I am one who does. I think its a clever and funny show with wacky plots and un-pc humor. Give this a look if you like that kind of stuff.

    NOTE: This is a really old review. I like the show less now.
  • Funyyyy!!!!!

    Family Guy is one of the most funniest shows on tv right now. It always cheers me up when im in a bad mood. . . The main cast and their main parts are Seth MacFarlane, who voices Peter Griffin, Stewie Griffin, Brian Griffin, Glenn Quagmire, and Tom Tucker.... Alex Borstein as Lois Griffin.... Loretta Brown (until the character was retired in season four), and Trisha Takanawa. . Seth Green as Chris Griffin; and Mila Kunis as Meg Griffin. The main cast do voices for several recurring characters other than those listed, as well as impersonate celebrities and pop-culture icons.
  • It was my favourite show, and now I don't laugh.

    Family Guy was my favourite show of all time in the mid 2000s, when it was about stupid humour, an evil baby, an anthropomorphic dog and a dysfunctional family. The humour made me laugh at all the pop culture references and heavy satire. The stretching of Political Correctness was perfect and I could not miss an episode. It was my favourite show of all time. Unfortunately, ever since the the 118th episode, I do not laugh. They have gotten too political and now it's just a tool for Seth, the author, to express his opinion with no laughter. C'mon, bring back the old humour!
  • family guy was a great show but now its a deperate cry for attention

    family guy was a great show but now its a deperate cry for attention. the first 3 seasons of this show were great but after that it went downhill i did like seasons 4 and 5 i thought they were good but it just started to suck after that because of too many random gags, too many time fillers, repetitive jokes and everything else just sucked. my score for the seasons
    seasons 1-3 8.5
    seasons 4 and 5 7.5
    season 6 6
    season 7 4.5
    and after that i stopped watching, i actually stopped mid 6th and watched some in the 7th but what i saw was whorse. so watch something else like the simpsons or futurama or south park even american dad is better.
  • What the hell is wrong with Seth McFarlane? How do you take the funniest 3 seasons of TV I've ever seen and turn it into the new crap that's on?

    Not only is the new Family Guy episode unfunny and uninspired, the material is just horrible. I noticed that almost all the episodes are single character heavy as well now. Usually everyone would have something to do in the shows. In this past one, I think Meg had 2 lines. They need to get the family involved more, or just go back to Stewie Brian and Peter heavy episodes. Those always sell.

    The material is just horrible lately. They would normally tangent off and cut to some ridiculous situation that they allude to, but now all they do is use obscure famous people, putting them in odd situations that really aren't funny in the context. It's easy to pick on famous people, but they are overusing it and making worse by making the scenes horribly unfunny as well. A lot of it seems forced and besides making old and tired references (like the Star Wars scene in the sewer), the show just seems like if it keeps on this path, a lot of fans are going to be fed up with the constant disappointed of the new Family Guy... and quickly.
  • This is an animated show thats comedically the best there is.

    This show is the very best in the form of comedey and edgeyness. There is no better when it comes to the humor of creator Seth McFarline! This show offers many different pokes at all kinds of contravercial points, like Michael Jackson, George W. Bush, republicans, and many more greatly funny topics. Altough it doesn't appeal to all crowds, its a show many shouldn't miss.
  • a trully hilarious show that started out really strong and has been going down hill for quite some time

    i love family guy a show that really took off from the start. was so funny with hilirous jokes they shut it down and then it came back on due to the sales of dvds for family guy i am a guy that owns all of them. i watch the show every time and seen all the eps so far. the jokes and 80s and 90s refrences are hilirous but the first 4 seasons or maby 5 seasons were really good but these last 2 or 3 have been bad like they have some funny ness but its just not as good the simpsons did not lose there funny ness till about the 8 or 9th season family guy lost it even quicker. i gave a 8.5 because i think itsa good show.
  • Family Guy is a very great show, but sometimes crosses the line.

    Family Guy , really, so don't get me wrong, it is absolutely one of the best shows fox has ever had. although sometimes I wonder "did they really just go there?" just kind of like a really shocking moment, Family Guy used to be original and funny, but once they hit the 7th season it started to go downhill, however episodes like Three Kings or Road to the Multiverse, they did not show originality, but were very funny, but then there were episodes like I Dream of Jesus, or The Father, the Son & the Holy Fonz, funny, but just plain stupid. and then there are episodes that everyone loves like PTV or Blue Harvest. now, when I say cross the line, do you remember that episode from season 8 when chris has a crush on the girl with Down's Syndrome and stewie sings the song about her, that was just wrong, but somehow I find it very odd that no one cares if South Park crosses the line, but god forbid that family guy says something bad? I really dont get it, but all in all i think family guy has it's ups and downs and for that it earns from me an 8.0 score.
  • Overall I love this show it is sometimes a little inappropriate but its funny at the same time.If you love comedy then this show it for you.It features jokes about celebrities that are just hilarious.

    I've watched this show ever since I first saw it one day.I laughed so hard I was out of breath.I Esp. like the one with Jesus in it I laughed till I couldn't laugh any more. Another one that is my favorite is Stewie Kills Louis.If you like comedies then congratulation you just found a funny show.The Review Wasn't long enough so ignore the aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa aaa
  • A great show turns into Mediocrity.

    When the show first started out it had extremely funny jokes and very humorous characters. Things like Stewie; the evil baby genius made the show. but unfortunately after Fox picked up Family Guy after it's cancellation, it started going down hill. First off the jokes are played out too long, for example, Peter mentions that an English Gentlemen's Club is boring, and it shows the english men clearing their throats for what seems like 3 minutes, and that leads me to be rather annoyed by them. Secondly, the gross out humor is not very humorous. Brain "cleaning" Stewie's diaper is not funny in the slightest. Thirdly, Stewie has gone from an evil homicidal baby, into a down right annoying, feminized character, and every character seemed to have changed into either idiots, selfish, or just plain rude. Now, It does have it's good parts, but some of the stated reasons above kind of make me annoyed by the show.
  • Fart jokes at it's finest!

    When you think of gay babies, stupid fathers, big nosed mothers and alcohlic dogs, what's the first thing that comes to mind? A nightmare you had when you were stoned? No? Give up? It's Family Guy. Family Guy started out back in 1999, back when I was 3. Ever since then, it was a great series! Jokes were clever and even if it was called a Simpsons rip off, it was still good! Then, it was canceled and people sent in letters and things. Wouldn't you know, 2 and a half years later, it's back! The new season was good. Had some refreshing comedy that we remember from the older ones and even some new characters. But, next season, all hell brakes loss. Family Guy began to lose it's touch, up until the point where it wasn't even watchable. And it's not just the script! The animate lost it's touch and it just wasn't the Family Guy we just grew up with. I like the first 4 seasons because they were great. The animation was free and everything. But now, it's "Fart jokes at it's finest!".

    Think about it. All it centers around is Stewie being gay or Peter doing some kind of rediclious stunt. Just like the title says. "But where are those good ol' fashion values, on which we used to relay!". I think they did that on purpose.
  • This is a great show,Funny,Dramatic,overall awesome.

    This show has always been really funny, The story always made sense, and followed some character throughout. There are a decent amount of specials for this show, which I also like in a series. With specials like "On the road to" You never know what to expect, but it's always great. The show has changed over the years, but only for the better. Family Guy has always been one of the funniest cartoons in my mind. With the Cast and Crew working on the show, I always know what to expect, and that's another fantastic episode. Overall, this is a great, funny show.
  • It's funny!

    It's a great show! The family is just hilarious. I wish it was more, TV-14 then TV-14 DLSV.... It make it better for all.

    Anyway its a good show, with Peter, the fat funny man who can't seem to do anything with his life. Lois, just Lois.... Meg the Ugly Banshee Monkey, Brain the talking liberal nutjob dog, Chris the fat kid, and Stewie, everybodies adorable little hitler All of the episodes have proven some bit of hilariousness to them, I think its a great show!

    It was sad it was cancelled, but I'm glad they brought it back.

    Family Guy ftw!
  • A good show overall, but there are things in this show that I'm starting to dislike.

    Family Guy is a good show. Seasons 1-3 were good, season four was mediocre, season five was pretty good, and season six was alright. However, in season seven, the show went downhill. The storylines got worse, the characters started to annoy me, and the jokes just weren't as funny. Fortunately, the show went uphill in season eight, but there are still a few things in this show that I don't like.

    Gross-out gags- I'm getting sick of the writers overusing gross humor. It's okay once in a while, but I'm getting tired of the characters vomiting all the time. I remember in one episode where Brian had to "clean" Stewie's diaper. It wasn't funny in the least.

    Violence- Is it me, or are the characters getting really violent towards each other? Seriously, they just beat each other up for the worst reasons. I remember last night's episode where Quagmire barged into the Griffin's house, and mercilessly beat Brian. Scenes like that are unnecessary, and they're being used too often.

    Lois- My new least favorite main character. She's extremely judgmental and rude to everyone. Also, she's really mean to Brian, and that's why I hate her character.

    Racist humor- Family Guy is a funny show, but it definitely isn't funny when it blatantly makes fun of other groups of people. Things like people assuming that black people are robbing them just aren't funny.

    Despite the bad, there are definitely some things in this show that are improving and keeping me watching this show.

    Brian and Stewie- I know some people think these two characters are taking over the show, but I like seeing them in most episodes. They're my favorite characters in the show, as they're both hilarious, and they bring emotion into the show.

    No Meg bashing- Meg getting picked on by the Griffin family got annoying after a while, but it's finally stopped. I like seeing Meg stand up for herself, and not be a punching bag.

    Good humor- Despite some of the bad jokes in this show, there are still parts that make me laugh. The humor is still occasionally witty, and can be hilarious.

    Overall, Family Guy has its flaws, but its still a good show. It had a bad run for a while, but it's improving, and I still like it.
  • I know people are going to disagree, but I just don't find the show too amusing.

    This show is about a geeky family that strips with a zany of overrated characters. To give my opinions on the main, there is Peter, a fat geek who has no life and works at a fast food resturant. There's Lois, a high pitched women (obviously a geek from that) who is married to Peter, in which I don't see why. There's Chris, the only one I like since he is not a geek. There's Meg, the hugest geek in the whole family that reminds me too much of the sickening Miley Cyrus. There's Stewie, an immature infant that always cusses, which gets VERY annoying. And there's Brian, a retarded pet dog. In my opinion, the show is pointless, it shows stripping way too much, and there's too much geeks. The only thing that keeps the show from getting a 1 is the rare humor in the show. But otherwise, terrible, just terrible. So go ahead, click Disagree, I don't care, it won't change my opinion AT ALL.

  • one of my all time favorite shows

    listen everyone can say that its going downhill just because it had one bad season in season 7, but do not let that affect your opinion about the show in general. especially the early years. the early years of Family Guy were some of the most freaking sweet moments of any show in television history. when the show got revived i admit that they became more focused with the cutaway gags then the actual story but it doesn't bother me because it was still bringing in plenty of lol moments. overall, family guy is an extremely solid show and don't let one bad season affect your opinion about the show in general.
  • What has happened to family guy? It used to leave me in stitches now I'm really struggling to find laughs.

    I used to think that there was nothing better on TV than family guy, but the more recent episodes really seem like they are struggling to produce the humor. There are still funny parts in the episodes and its still enjoyable to watch but I really feel its missing the spark that it first started with. Personally my favorite character is Peter though it seems that at the moment he is not playing as big a role as he used to. There seems to be quite a few 'Brian and Stewie' episodes which, after a while, tend to get a bit boring and repetitive. Hopefully they can find that old spark again and reignite this good show that was once great.
  • Used to be great. Now it's just annoying.

    I loved the first three or four season of family guy. A diabolical genius of an infant intent on killing his "domestic overlords," a fat misogynist dealing with the fact that he's ignorant (and an incapable family man), his wife who puts up with his antics and her baby's attempts on her life while managing the house, a dog with more common sense than the rest of the house combined, and two everyday, anti-social kids all living under a dysfunctional roof made for great television. Now that's all been thrown out the window and lies dead in a pool of blood about 1,000,000 miles back.
    The diabolical genius intent on maternal murder is now a flamboyant stereotype who serves as nothing more than a gag, the fat moron hasn't changed a bit and is getting a bit stale, the wife does nothing more than occupy his bedside, the dog is THE most annoying character in television (seriously, Seth, drop the politics), and the children are hardly more than background props.
    I think this is a show that has run its course. I understand that some people still find this show good and I still watch it from time to time, but I've grown tired of it. Good riddance, Family Guy.
  • It's like that time I reviewed Family Guy...

    A show about a fat idiot, his stupid son, a socially akward reject, an evil baby and a woman.

    The Simps-I mean, Family guy has it all! Except for all it lacks. Some adult cartoons offend people by pushing the envelope. Family Guy offends people by pushing the envelope that was already pushed off the table and eaten by the cat. What does this mean? It means Family Guy's offenses come at the expense of played out adult show punching bags, such as: The handicapped, the government, Christians, Black people, gays and Mexicans. Seth McFarlane takes special care in making sure his show doesn't offend his precious target audience (I.e frat boys, stoners and 14 year-old girls). The Humor in this show comes from the afore mentioned "offensive" and "edgy" content, and from the pointless, witless disposable jokes in the form of flashbacks triggered when someone (usually Peter) says "It's like that time I..." or "It's worse than the time I...". This line is usually followed by an action, an 80's pop culture icon and a place. Example: "It's like that time I beat Madonna at a Taco eating contest in Guantanamo bay". The "jokes" don't make much sense (if any) and have as much wit as a glass of orange juice. The characters are bland. They have no personality and what little character they have is stolen from other, more developed characters from other shows or other media. They change to suit whatever cut-away gag McFarlane crapped out for that week's episode, resulting in endlessly shifting characters devoid of any personality. They're basically lumps of clay... poorly animated lumps of clay. The animation looks like it was done by a 10 year old. The art is mediocre at best and the animation is almost non-existent. Characters lack eyebrows, so their facial expressions are incredibly limited(a technique the incredibly gifted protege genius McFarlane farted out to save money and so that he wouldn't have to think too much) leaving only their body language to convey their (lack of) emotions. This would work, in theory, IF the characters weren't so stiff. They're always drawn in 3/4th's view and their movement is limited to their mouths, a slight head-bob every now and then and, if it's a special occasion, they MIGHT move their arms! To sum it all up, Family Guy is a poorly written, witless show that is still popular to this day for some unknown reason. I don't even know why. Its target audience shouldn't even GET their "jokes" since they reference things from 80's pop culture... FROM THE 1980's, BEFORE most of the show's viewers were born. Combine that with some of the most unlikable, personality-less characters around, a douchebag writer/ creator who's constantly pissing out worse and worse episodes and you get Family Guy, a stupid show completely undeserving of all the praise and fame it's acquired over the years.
  • Once a HILARIOUS show has now become a gross out gag. But still worth adding to your favorite collection if you look at the older seasons.

    Back then this show used to be absolutely hilarious, something that would've been perfect for comedy central. It used to be be up there with South Park, The Simpsons, Futurama and Beavis & Butthead. But now it's dying a fiery death and is getting too dumb. The 150th episode Brian & Stewie (do not watch that episode) is a perfect example of the shows down fall. Half of this show is also totally ripped from The Simpsons, which means Seth is unoriginal and couldn't think of an idea how to design the show's setting and characters. The Cleveland Show wasn't necessary either, it just showed more proof how uncreative Seth Macfarlane has become. This show's partner, American Dad! is much better than Family Guy now, since it's smarter and has more plot and originality. I hope this is just a phase and the show gets cured again.

    Grade: 80%
  • Best. Show. Ever.

    With its wacky cutaways, and funny guest appearances, Family Guy has made it to the 'perfect' top numbers spot in my profile!

    Peter Griffin is the main character, who has done some crazy things, from buying a dinosaur, then a brain damaged horse, to attacking a fish-juggling Hitler and causing a pillow fight to turn into a fistfight with his friends. Heck, he actually cheated Death, and caused death to stop happening by breaking the Grim Reaper's ankle.

    Lois Griffin is Peter's sane wife, who was put up with some of the crazy antics. She usually treated Peter like a kid, like when Peter beat up a kid who hurt Chris.

    Chris Griffin is fat, like Peter. He usually has some antics of his own, and was afraid of the evil monkey who lived his closet, before the monkey moved away.

    Meg Griffin is the punching bag of the family, always getting kicked out of the house or hurt or even insulted. However, she turned into a delinquent after spending time in jail, but she's not like that anymore.

    Brian Griffin is the family dog, who even had a crush on Lois. He is best friends with Stewie, although Stewie might have a gay crush on him, after Brian licked Stewie's ass, like Peter's dumb horse did in Peter's sleep.

    Stewie is the youngest and most intelligent of the family. Early in the series, Stewie had plans to kill Lois, but Stewie decided to skip that. He is best friends with Brian, and might have a crush on him, too. Brian licked his butt and was forced to each his poop, too.

  • Which was once a very funny, smart show is now a complete disaster.

    I'll start off by saying I loved the first few seasons of this show. It was still violent and everything, but it provided some good laughs. We had all the funny characters like Stewie the homicidal baby, and Brian the talking dog. While these characters were funny in the earlier seasons, a lot has changed now. Stewie is more whiny, and seems actually gay in the newer episodes. It's pretty bad. Moving on, the jokes in this show are no longer funny. They all involve farts, penis and other testicle jokes that a typical 8 year old would be cracking up to. Did I mention the jokes are now even more violent and offensive now? Seth has gone off the deep end now.
    It's a already bad enough he makes the Cleveland Show!

    If I were you, I would rent one of the earlier season's of this show. It is so much better than the newer episodes.
  • Freaking.Sweet.

    Absolutely no more can be said about this AMAZING show. It is extremely entertaining and funny, and is the best show I have found since The Simpsons. Family Guy rules. As simple as that. a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a a.
  • Family Guy is about the Griffin family Peter, Lois there children Meg, Chris, Stewie and there smart almost human talking dog Brian. The show focuses on there every day lives and problems.

    I love this show so much. My Favorite charaters are Brian the dog and Lois the housewife. I love Brian he is so easy to like. I love how he tends to be a booze hound. I love when Brian sings. I love Lois because she is loyal to Peter no matter what. Thats got to be pretty hard considering that Peter is a Moron and a drunk. Lois is pretty much the only one is is nice to meg for the most part. I also like Meg. Very few like this poor girl but I do. I look forward to each new season with eagerness.
  • A eco-friendly Episode, it just took two laughs, at best.

    Its hard for me to say this, because i am a Family Guy fan since first Episode, but Ocean's Three and a Half was in my opinion a waste of Time. Speaking of Time, most of that was filled with Stewie's Video to a Bryan Adams Song (though i liked it), which was okay, and that awfully stupid Christian Bale Audio. Why did they do this? Why giving the nice Stories, clever Puns and partially black Humor to American Dad only, and let Family Guy go down the Drain?

    Most of the older Episodes have cool Stories and really funny Clips (the brand of this Show), but somehow the Team lost its Touch. Watching American Dad,

  • Uncreative, unoriginal, idiotic, and overall: Not funny.

    I never know why anyone ever watches this episode. Most of what seems to happen is that they take scenes of something such as a movie or tv show and just remake it with their characters. This for some reason is funny, and I will never know why anyone thinks so.

    Seriously, the amount of immature jokes and stereotypical jokes are so overused that it has became as not funny as it was they showed before. By copying old jokes, and immaturity thought is just, not hilarious. I find this as one if not the most overrated show ever aired.
  • Family guy is in my top 3 greatest cartoons on tv today. Its fresh, politically incorrectand ,unpredictable, and hilarious to watch! Keep this show on forever!

    Family guy is in my top 3 greatest cartoons on tv today. Its fresh and unpredictable. All characters are perfectly balanced and unique. Stewie and Brian are my favorite. The shock factor in the politically incorrect jokes makes this show stand apart from most of the shows today.
    I hope they never censure this show of cancel it. Family guy makes all the statements that need to be said once in a while. The prostate exam episode still makes me smile every time I think of it. Everyone had those times where they are thinking something they cant say because it is not correct to comment….well in cases like that I see some family guy episodes flashing in my mind…and it's hard to not grin. Keep this show on forever!
  • Fred Savage is the greatest actor in the history of the world!

    After crashing and burning last week, I was extremely relieved to see the show slightly recover with a decent but by no means classic episode. I really wish they would have done more with the Fox News angle and less with the Handiquacks but overall, at least they got to the main plot right away instead of making us suffer through a three minute Conway Twitty song. With the Lois and the Willy Wonka "run home" scene, that was slightly amusing but it seems like they're using the same jokes again and again. This episode reminded me of the older episodes where there was more of an actual plot instead of constant random jokes. I always enjoy watching people slam Ann Coulter but by far the best of the joke of the episode was at the end when they did the Wonder Years narration thing and Fred Savage screams, "I don't need you anymore!"
    Bottom line: Not classic, but good enough that I'll keep in on my Tivo for a couple of months so I can watch it again later.
  • A decent show worth watching when there's not much else on.

    Family Guy is not exactly something I would call a "family" show. There is a very large gerth of crude humor, that can be offending and inappropriate for children under... let's say 12.

    The show follows a family of 6...(Peter, Lois, Chris, Meg, Stewie, and Brian.) Peter is a rather pompous idiot who is always getting himself in trouble, while his wife Lois, who has had her share of shenanigans, is usually the logical stay-at-home mom.
    Chris and Meg are teenagers who are unpopular, and a little off the wall.
    As for Stewie he has an intelligent, wanna-dominate-the-world, sort of personality, and apparently nobody can really "hear" what he plots except for Brian, the family's dog, that is an almost human like character, and a major alcoholic at times.

    Overall this show doesn't follow a real plot, but can be found worth a few laughs.
