Family Guy


Lucky there's a...

Family Guy is the hit animated sitcom schemed up by Seth MacFarlane (American Dad, The Cleveland Show and The Winner). The show was picked up by FOX and first aired in 1999, but soon after was put into the "death timeslot". Grasping for ratings from being up against Friends and Survivor, the show was cancelled in 2002.

The Family Guy DVD sets were released in mid 2003, and sales boomed. Along with this, and the high ratings from the reruns on Adult Swim, the show was re-picked up, and the new season aired on May 1st, 2005.

The show revolves around the Griffins, although mainly Peter, the fat, obnoxious, idiotic father who in the end will do anything for his family. Lois, his wife, does her best to keep things in check. Coming from a rich family (the Pewterschmidts), Lois can be elegant at certain times, and as wild as Peter at others. She's a stay-at-home mom who teaches piano in her spare time. Then there's Meg, their 16 year old daughter. Meg is socially awkward and often the bud of even her family's jokes. She'll do anything to be "in with the in crowd", but people have been known to set them selves on fire just to escape from looking at her. Chris, their 14 year old son, is somewhat mentally slow but artistically brilliant. Chris has no trouble making friends, but meeting girls is somewhat a problem for him. Stewie, the diabolically evil, super-intelligent, baby whose main focus is killing his mother Lois. And of course, Brian, the Griffin's martini sippin', dry witted, intelligent, talking dog who secretly loves Lois. Brian can enjoy a nice night at the opera with an intelligent woman, although some times his dog instincts get the best of him.

Family Guy brings a unique brand of humor to the table. It's most notable being the constant nonsensible flashbacks showing the characters doing a variety of unreal things somewhat relating to the situation at hand. After the return of the show to TV in 2005, also came a load of new critics. The most common complaint being the drastic change of Stewie's personality. Going from constant matricidal thoughts, to an infant expressing his budding homosexuality. Although, this is simply a matter of opinion. We're just lucky there's a Family Guy...

Episode Info

Next: 13x01 -- The Simpsons Guy (Sep/28/2014) [Special Runtime: 60 Min.]


Peter and the Griffins get out of dodge and end up in Springfield, where they are greeted by a friendly stranger named “Homer Simpson”, who welcomes his new “albino” friends with open arms.

The families get along famously: Stewie and Bart make out like bandits, when Stewie trades in his mind control device for a good old-fashioned slingshot; Lisa takes Meg under her wing and teaches her the saxophone; Marge and Lois ditch housework for a little bonding; and Peter and Homer fight over the best beer in town – Pawtucket vs. Duff.


Prev: 12x21 -- Chap Stewie (May/18/2014)


It's the last straw for Stewie, when his favorite TV show is interrupted by Peter & Chris' latest shenanigans.

To be rid of the Griffins once and for all, he decides to go back in time and break Peter & Lois up so he's never born.

Doing this however, causes him to be born in a seemingly ideal, British aristocratic household.

Wickedly funny show ...Rating: 11 likes, 17 dislikes

I'm not quite sure that Family Guy can be compared to other adult animated series out there these days, this series has a unique type of humour - almost to the point of surrealism. The gags can be read on so many levels and I can honestly say I've never managed to watch an episode without laughing out loud. Read more
