Peter's shirt buttons the wrong way. Men's shirts button with the left side over the right side, but Peter's shirt is backwards, in the same direction as Lois's shirt. Occasionally, but very rarely, this changes. See more »

While I know that I run the risk of being chased out of town for saying this, I feel that since the beginning of Season 5, the show has lost its edge.
90% of the jokes in "Family Guy" fall into one of 3 categories: 1) Jokes making fun of pop culture (especially old TV shows and celebrities) 2) Gags that run so long that they become absurd 3) Flashbacks, most of the time introduced with "This is more ___ than that time I ___"
I'm sure that a lot of people find this stuff funny, but after 4 seasons with this kind of humour, it just becomes so expected that it ends up being routine. This doesn't do it for me.
I still like this show and I think it has a lot of potential, but it needs some new ideas!
