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. Expand

    Between [Peter Griffin's] hiring of a "penis butler," his purchase of a solid-gold tuxedo at the "nonsense store," and his riff on the "dreadfulness" of True Blood, it's easy to forgive the plot for being as old as the hills.

    Holy **** do I ever love Family Guy. Last night's episode was pretty legitimate, Mystery Thriller like Tmacfan51 said. I'll just tell you aHoly **** do I ever love Family Guy. Last night's episode was pretty legitimate, Mystery Thriller like Tmacfan51 said. I'll just tell you a little bit about the plot, without spoiling anything. Everybody of Quahog gets invited to James Woods' Manor for a dinner, but what no one realizes is that it won't be a very fun night for the citizens of Quahog. If you wanna know what I'm talking about, watch the episode!
    But it was pretty funny and thrilling for the viewers throughout the entire episode. A nice one hour special to kick off the 9th season of Family Guy. I am interested in seeing what Seth MacFarlane and the team has in store for us this season.

    This is the best season the show has ever had up to this point. The originality and cutaways are at a quality we've never seen. While notThis is the best season the show has ever had up to this point. The originality and cutaways are at a quality we've never seen. While not everything is great, surprisingly, little is actually bad, and everything is highly amusing. This is thirty minutes of pure entertainment. "Halloween on Spooner Street", "New Kidney in Town", and "Friends of Peter G." are some of the best the show has ever made. An extrordinary effort from the team put forth created moments where your sides hurt from laughing so much, and is not to be missed. Great season, Family Guy. Season 9 was freakin' sweet. Expand

    Family guy starts of season 9 with an amazing mystery thriller. If you are looking for the usual Family Guy fart jokes and over-the-lineFamily guy starts of season 9 with an amazing mystery thriller. If you are looking for the usual Family Guy fart jokes and over-the-line offensive jokes......think again. Dedicated to his deceased mother, Seth Macfarlane shows off his first HD episode with impressive animation. The plot is exciting, intense, yet still humorous. While I predict no other episode will be as impressive visually as this one, season 9 looks to be another hilarious season for Family Guy. Expand

    While this is one of my favorite shows on TV, Family Guy just can't seem to pull of any original jokes anymore. Instead you get these episodesWhile this is one of my favorite shows on TV, Family Guy just can't seem to pull of any original jokes anymore. Instead you get these episodes were it ends up divulging into an idiot fest between Peter and his friends (that most of the time isn't funny) or your stuck with Brian and Stewie in a world of politics, racist remarks, and overused gay jokes. I mean I love Family Guy but come on Seth give us something original. I'm thinking all that money is going to your head. Expand

The series has been funny but has not aged well over these past few years. Every time I see the show in that widescreen format I cringe knowing that show has made the characters unlikable the jokes to be either obvious or cringe-worthy. Hopefully they can fixed the show and have some better episodes but I doubt it. Expand
