Synopsis / Plot
TV Series (1999-2002; 2005Today). Animation. Black comedy. Peter Griffin yearns to be a champion dad for his dysfunctional family, but in his attempts he only winds up making a ridiculous fool of himself. While he looks over his two teenagers and his baby (who has an English accent and is keen on dominating the world), it's abundantly clear that the family dog is the smartest member of the Griffin clan. This collection contains 28 episodes of irreverent humor combining the satire of The Simpsons with the gross-out slapstick of South Park during the animated show's unfortunately short run.

Critics' reviews
  • "'Family Guy' stands to become the best satire of all-American dysfunction next to 'The Simpsons'."
  • "Both undeniably clever and utterly bizarre - not always for the better-"
  • "Even if you find the show odd, awful or freakish, at least it won't bore you."
  • "Utterly excremental. May the room in which 'Family Guy' is drawn be sacked, emptied, disinfected and burned to a cinder. Anything to keep them from making any more episodes of this smug and amateurish tripe."
