The Family Guy. What can be said about the show?? Well it centers on the GRIFFEN FAMILY. Stupid dad, Loving Mom, rebellious daughter, overweight son, and an english talking baby who wants to destroy his mother along with the world. Oh! and an Intellectual
Okay well from the summary, the show may seem off putting. I agree. The summary was near enough the exact same summary I as given by various friends who said "I must watch the show... I'd love it!!!" Still a little aprehensive, I did watch the show and loved it!!
If you want to relate the show to something then it has to be said it is a little more adult intended than The Simpsons, However both shows can easily deliver side-splitting one-liners and in a split second, with memorable characters that everyone can relate to.
Family Guy is however a little less conservative than King Of The Hill with a bit more of a relaxed atmosphere and a little but more raunchy. There is however some mild language but nothing to vulgar or inappropriate, it has been carefully placed in the right moments to deliver the right scene. So in difference to South Park which although funny can sometimes be inappropriately rude.
So it is safe to say that the creators of the show have certainly found a niche within the viewers and it deserves every credit for it. I love the fact I can watch a show that is hillarous yet is adult intented but not so rude and disgusting that the comdey falls to pieces so I have to say 10/10 for this show. I appeal to everyone to watch atleast one show before you decide for yourself.
Man i remember when this 1st came out on dvd. I was a huge fan and was dissapointed that it was cancelled, so i ended up running to best buy the day 1st season came out. I had figured since this got cancelled people really didn\'t care about it and i should have a copy waiting for me, boy was I wrong they had sold out of it early that morning and i was like how the hell does a show that no one care about get sold out. Well that showed those dopes at fox that this was special and that they just messed up.
For the show, what can i say its funny as hell. The characters are very entertaining and this keeps the show fresh. I enjoy watching stewy trying to take out his mom, i like seeing how stupid peter is and seeing him get into trouble, brian is just redicouluse (yea i know i spelled it wrong) its like the creators mocking disney and everyone else that has a talking dog on there shows and makes him interact with the humans. And the rest there all funny, this show is great.
Its really funny but i dont like its drawing style. i mean its not as bad as southpark but also not as funny. i like watching it but im not crazy for it. i watched now all series, it defintily has something of simpsons while it might be a bit more on that funny side than social critic. good show to kill some time.
a great funny show that i cant get enough of. it never gets old so freaking funny it will laugh you till you die dont drink and watch this show because you will spill it from laughing so much so in conclusion a gret show and everyone should watch it
Family Guy, the brainchild of TV comedy genius Seth McFarlane, is definitely, to put it in the words of Peter Griffin, freakin' sweet. Not even American Dad, McFarlane's other show, can steal it's thunder. Family Guy is a classic portrayal of an America
I first truly discovered Family Guy when channelsurfing one night. I had seen vague snippets of this show, but up until about 2004 it did not truly quench my thirst for good quality programming.
When TVTome.com was still on the Internet, I was managing the Kim Possible board. Everyone knew about 'KP''s soon-to-be cancellation, and one user (who I cannot recall, unfortunately) brought up the topic of Family Guy, who had escaped the fires of cancellation due to excellent DVD sales. After hearing from another friend the excellence of this show, I fell in love.
Stewie cracks me up, as does Brian. Some say they don't like the interaction between the two now, but I love it. While Stewie may not be the matricidal infant he was before, I'll have to admit there ARE some excelllent quotes in the series because of him, such as "Is there a shorter word for intercourse?" and "Haha! Look at me! I just escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement!" (which I actually do not get, but Stewie running nude through a public mall cracks me up).
Peter, the patriarch of the Griffin family, is also hilarious. With a friend who wants nothing more than a hot chick, and another friend who is peace loving, hilarious dysfunction rears its' head.
I urge everyone to at least give this show a try. I enjoy it very much, and I know many others feel the same exact way that I do.
Family Guy is about a guy named Peter Griffin who lives with his family in Quahog,Rhode Island.It includes his wife Lois,his kids Chris,Meg,and Stewie,and their talking dog Bryan.Peter is a dim witted,overweight,man who is always getting into a stupid situation.Like the time when he accidently crashed into a satellite dish!
A very funny show that takes place in Rhode Island. About a fat guy named Peter who is a complete idiot, and his family which consists of his wife Lois, his daughter Meg, and his son Chris, his other son which is a diabolacol mad man named Stewie which is a baby and he brings much comedy to the show. And last but not least their talking dog Brian. This show has many stupid parts and for Family Guy stupid is the best thing! Many plot twists flash backs and just funny things happen. The 4th series is here and it is the best one yet! And I hope that this show lasts forever.
I was one of the few people that watched Family Guy on FOX from the very start. I was very sad and hurt when the show got cancelled, also how it got moved around in time slots. When the DVD's came out I was in heaven, but I was even more happy when new episodes returned! The best part is that it's still funny, and I don't have to worry about it getting cancelled because the ratings are good.
FG is the ultimate show. i mean if you like the simpsons or any variety show you will love this one as well. Its funny its creative and its random moments are just pure entertainment. If you know anything about pop culture, this show will haev you on your
Imagine life with a dad that is "special" and unresponsible and a mother who loves her big idiot of a husband, and there three kids. All of these elements are the perfect description of "the Simpsons". Now take away the yellow skin, and actually let the youngest not only talk but speak his mind with a british accent and you will have Family Guy. It has all the randomness of The Simpsons, but has more "What If's" and spoofs on classic tv and pop culture. FG pushes so many buttons and makes you laugh so hard. It is definately one of those "Love It, or Hate It" Shows. Thanks to DvD sales and its success on Cartoon Networks: Adult Swim, FG did something very few shows have done. Made a comeback from being canceled for over years and made it Big, Edgy, and Awesome! So with its new huge fanbase along with the original FG Fanatics, there will be alot more tales from Spooner Street.
The greatest thing about family guy is that everything can be used for a joke! Magnum P.I, Oreos, Macgyver, E.T, Charlie Brown, they've all been used and abused to create the greatest hook on tv today! How many shows dare go to such places when looking for (and finding) humor? The answer is not many, and none to this high standard! This is without even mentioning the Griffins. The single best family on tv!! If you only have time for one show a week, make it this one! You won't be sorry!!!
Family Guy is one of the best animated comedies ever. Its episodes are full of humor from the past and current events. This is a must see. What other show has been cancelled and than brought back on air due to high DVD sales? Due yourself a favor and go watch Family Guy right now!!
I like family guy but Peter is a little to supied and family guy is a little unreal with the talking dog, and the talking baby. I like a few episodes like that one when Stuwie and Brian go to Europe, and that one when peter becomes a fisherman and thoes are my favorites.
One of the most amazing things about Family Guy is, once you’re a fan - you’re a fan.
But if you're sitting on the fence, I can't emphasize enough what a great show "Family Guy" is. It is literally funnier than anything on TV today, and over time, I expect it will be even more broadly appreciated for its comic genius. If you want to laugh until it hurts, and aren't offended by humor on the edge, this is definitely a show for you.
It is an unfortunate fact that in the politically correct age we live in that edgy comedy is categorized as offensive when it is really just being silly. That is exactly what happened to "Family Guy" a series that laid siege to every one of our sacred cows (religion, sex, violence, race relations, etc.), but did so in such a matter of fact manner, I find it hard to believe that anyone could have taken issue with it.
My husband and I watch this show all the time. As soon as it went off the air, we bought all the seasons, 1 through 3. We watched them over & over, and most of our friends question us about watching it when they come over.
Now that it’s on again, I couldn’t be happier. The new episodes are so much better, proving that the creators and producers aren’t getting old, they’re getting better. And even FOX is getting better about the timing, there always seems to be one thing said right before a commercial break, and me and my husband are still laughing through the commercials.
Family Guy follows the life and exploits of Peter Griffin, an idiotic family man flanked by his intelligent and loving wife, Lois. The couple have two children - Chris (an overweight, mentally challenged teenage boy), Meg (a neurotic teenage girl with low self-esteem), and Stewie (a super-intelligent infant who believes his mother is his enemy). Together, the Griffins live with their human-like dog, Brian, in suburban Quahog, Rhode Island...
This show has wonderful characters - and there’s the constant question of whether anyone actually understands what Stewie is really saying or that Brian, the dog, is actually talking.
I have been mostly let down with the new season of Family Guy. From the first episode I thought they were doing an "ok" job (402 was outright awful), but I have never really been that worried because, being a long time fan, I remember how mediocre the first few episodes of season 1 were. I have, and still do, hoped that MacFarlane is just shaking the cobwebs off before getting back into the full swing of things like he was doing when Family Guy was in its prime, seasons 2 and 3. Still, the continued mediocrity of the new season has left me continually worried, constantly questioning if he ever will get back into the groove or not.
This fear is now through with the last episode, 405, The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire. Although not as good as some of the prime stuff, like 301 The Thin White Line (for those who don't remember, this is the one where Brian becomes a cokehead), it at least does deserve a mention with these very elite episodes. The cheesiness that has infested much of the new season is nonexistent here. It's pure unapologetic Family Guy humor that we all love. The popular culture references here are thick, such as the unexplicable reference to "Rock Lobster", sung at a hilariously inappropriate time. Or Superman's cellophane S, which Peter humorously critique's as being mostly useless. Then there are just Family Guys pure wackiness, such as Peter attempting CPR on a guy who got in a fender bender. This is classic Family Guy, hitting on all cylinders. If they keep this up the series will be right back on track.
I find that Family Guy, although it has its moments of hilarity and pleasing randomness, is exceedingly overrated. Talk to almost anyone who has seen the show on the internet and they will say something along the lines of "best show ever!" - it's simply not that funny, the Simpsons (BEFORE it got bad) and South Park are two American cartoons designed for a similar audience that are much funnier, on the whole.
Also, it can come across as racist, it does this in jest, certainly, but it can appear very spiteful if you are not American - I certainly don't think it should be pulled off the air for that, but it truly annoys me.
I also find that most of the characters, except Brian, Quagmire and Stewie, are rather boring, especially Meg and Lois.
I love this show! It is soooo original and funny! I watch this show ALL the time even when I have already seen them 100 times before! the humour brings me back every time! It is on Cartoon network, Fox, and other channels. cartoon network: 11:00 p.m.
I wouldn't miss it for the world.
Family Guy was started back in 1999 and hardly impressed viewers. nor was anyone impressed for the next few years, especially FOX. They gave it the ax before it ever blossumed but it got a fan base on cartoon network. the show quickly becaem CN's best show and headlined the Adult Swim lineup. Although many young viewers watch i believe the older generation apreiates it the most mixed with a few of the younger people. It ,makes countless refernces to older shows and movies and mixes it with todays humor and it got a smash hit that arguably became the most controversial and the best of all time. it may just be that the fanbs were right all along as the 4th season is quickly becoming the best season, we have watched our DVDs long enough and its time to give us new material and that they did.
Family Guy seems to be considered by many to be the best show of all time. Now, this is a good show, and at times, it is absolutely hi-freakin-larious. But there are many moments when it tries too hard to be funny. For one, there seem to be far too many moments where characters fall down incredibly-fast. It's getting old guys. Also, some moments are more tasteless than funny. But when you consider how few quality animated sit-coms there are, you look at all the others and go "this is the one." The best way to describe the humor is a mix of The Simpsons, King of the Hill, and South Park. It mixes the stereotypical sit-com family and sattire of The Simpsons, the attempts of Hank Hill-ish family domination, and the sick, twisted decadence of South Park. In other words, anyone who enjoys those shows will find something to enjoy about this show.
At it's best, Family Guy is a sattiric, gasp enducing, revolting piece of comic gold. At it's worst, it's just, well, stupid. If you look at episodes like E. Peterbus Unum, you can see sattire and allegory mixed with gross-out sex and fart jokes, although very often the jokes are just making fun of the jokes.
The voice acting of Family Guy is solid. Seth MacFarlane does many of the voices and does a commendable job. Though too often his voice is easily recognized, characters like Stewie and Peter are very difficult to associate with his voice. Most of the female characters are done by Mad TV alumni Alex Borstein (you may know her as Ms. Swan). She also does some writing for the show. Chris and a few characters are done by comic actor Seth Green. Though Green tends to wind up in good and bad stuff, he actually does a descent job with Chris's voice. Mila Kunis of That 70's Show does Meg. Unfortunately, although Meg has the potential to bring teenage angst into the series, all she does is be annoying, due to her overly angst-ridden dialogue.
The two most off-the-wall main characters are Brian and Stewie. Both talk when they shouldn't talk. Though the reasons they're so intelligent are never adequatly explained, they're the characters that bring high-brow (and also more low brow) humor into the show. They're dialogue is riddled with big words and obscure references. Brian is more of a realistic intellectual. He always has a newspaper (and often a martini) in his hands. Stewie is an evil-genius type person. He's also arguably the funniest character.
The supporting characters aren't nearly as developed as the characters in The Simpsons, but they're descent. Glen Quagmire is a hilarious (though not very likable) character who is always hoping to bag himself a chick. Cleveland is a black man who believe in equality, but is often overly-nice. Joe is a disables former-cop who still often contributes to the force. The anchors of the world are a duo called Tom Tucker and Diane Simmons. Though they're aren't quite Kent Brockman, they still bring some laughs to the table.
Overall, I reccomend this show to those who aren't easily offended and have a sense of humor. If you find the humor offensive, though, then you obviously shouldn't be watching animated sit-coms.
like the classification says, better every season. i call in sick when the show is on and i have to work :P I think that season 4 is so far the best, but off to a lil rough start. i cant wait untill family guy replaces the simpsons, which is getting really stale.
Wow. This an amazingly funny show. All of my friends love this show too. All the characters are so great. The new season is pretty good not like those of old. "Sir you can't park your van there" "Oh its not a van its just a fat kid." So many great lines and quotes but that is probably my favorite. I have seen every episode. Its very hard to chose a favorite but ill have to go with the episode where peter gets liposuction.
I never cared for family guy when it orginal aired. I started watching the reruns on CN with Futurama and it kinda grew on me. Some of the jokes are funny. I'm glad that Fox is giving it a second try. Maybe this will be the next simpsons or king of the hill.
Family guy is everything that cartoons has not yet been and yet shows a perfect roadmap to where cartoons will arrive soon.
A scant 16 years ago a new cartoon type was being started by Matt Groening, a cartoon for the whole family, called the simpons. One that has lasted til those who watched it the first time has grown past puberty and into young adults. Futurama capitialized on the more adult audience but was still tame and youngish.
South Park then tried to do something different, though it only got a bit of the formula right, it created a cartoon for the teenager to young adults. The problem is that for every person who found south park funny, there was one who found it juvenile. Family guy has improved on the formula to the point where the cartoon no longer is for children.
Family guy has changed the genre. Instead of focusing on how to bring in the young kids, the creators have created a show that will be enjoyable for people up to the young adulthood and beyond.
The topic matter of Family guy is the life style of a modern Rhode Island family. There's something for everyone in the show. Every character has a defined view.
The topic matter though ranges from sitcom types, however there's more then enough pop culture to make it a bit different. The pop culture references range from current events (mostly from 2 years and prior) to jokes at the expense of old comedians or references to old tv shows that have become a part of our television cultur.
The only problem with this show is that while it tries to bring adults into cartoons, most adults see this as a cartoon and consider it a child's show, however it is hardly such. The fact that it is one of the fastest selling dvds says volumes about it. In addition the fact that it's penetrated so well with college kids and such should say something about the level of the show.
No one can really tell anyone that it's an adult show or that it is for them, the feel and subject mater it is hardly something most of us would allow our children to watch, though we personally would definatly wish to watch it. This show is definatly worth giving it a chance. While it's not for everyone, it can pleasently suprise some people.
Oh my god, everybody loves Seth's first animated sitcom show. It's really funny and it's worth of watch. Seth's sick and twisted plot became a one serious business into an unbelievable blown up gut from the inside of your stomach. The soundtrack has been released and it became a comedy hit. The more Seth made it funny, the more we laugh. The more and the merrier. Trust me, you'll like it so much. Peter, Stewie and Brian were the funniest characters of this show and they're voiced by the creator, Seth, of course, who also created American Dad, which is another comedy hit by him. God bless America!
My final comment,
*Singing from the Newport House song* My god, this show is freakin' sweet!
The best show on tv. Kudos to Fox for bringing it back. I love the flashbacks. The show is just hilarious. I laugh for days and days after watching episodes of family guy. It helps you see things in a whole new way. I'll be watching this show and I'll think to myself, after laughing hysterically, "I never thought something like that would be that funny." The great characters, hilarious flashbacks, and wonderful way of looking at things makes us all feel like we are kids again. If there was one show on tv that I could watch, it would be this. Perfect 10 out of 10
They really went over the top on this episode. Loretta commits adultery on her own couch. Lois wants to get spanked. (You had to see it.) The episode was so adult, the Griffin kids were hardly even in the show. Leave it to Fox to be on the cutting edge. Thank you Fox! "Victory is Mine!!!"
Wow, thats all i can say from this show...besides HAHAHA! You will be dying after watching this, every episode will be the highlight of your week! It uses a unique way to make you laugh by making fart jokes and random dumb stuff. If you perfer fart jokes over complicated plots you'll love this show!
We may have heard it before, but this time, its even better. Peter isnt your average tv dad. Hes got heart, but lacks much else. Lois is the typical television mom, only, gasp, shes ACTUALLY FUNNY! Meg is ehm, next character. Chris is his fat son. One time he was even mistaken for a van, (in "He's too sexy for his fat", one of the series funniest episodes). Stewie is the evil genious baby and Brian is they cynical talking dog.
What makes Family guy so amazing is its ability to turn your average, boring television family into something hilarious. Every episode seems fresh and leaves you laughing for days, especially with the random flashbacks ("this is more intense than the time i forgot how to sit!"). Quote a line from the show and there should be at least 5 others in the room laughing histerically along with you. Family Guy is one of those shows. It just has it. And thats what makes it frickin sweet.
its so dumb it doesnt make sence maybe thats why it was taken off the air. not to mention its being beat by a canadian show called trailer park boys now thats a funny show and makes sence with a plot. also the simpsons blow it away. hopefully it gets taken off the air again
This show is easily the better than the simpsons or even Futurama-may it rest in peace-but it's not always that funny. Some of the episodes aren't great but most of them make me laugh for hours, especially the episodes with Peter fighting the giant chicken. Those are the greatest of all.
