Storyline

Sick, twisted and politically incorrect, the animated series features the adventures of the Griffin family. Endearingly ignorant Peter and his stay-at-home wife Lois reside in Quahog, R.I., and have three kids. Meg, the eldest child, is a social outcast, and teenage Chris is awkward and clueless when it comes to the opposite sex. The youngest, Stewie, is a genius baby bent on killing his mother and destroying the world. The talking dog, Brian, keeps Stewie in check while sipping martinis and sorting through his own life issues. Written by Jwelch5742

If anyone ever had neighbours like this...
18 December 2009 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

When I first watched this a decade ago, I wondered, "Who created this?!" and, "What mental hospital did they escape from?" Because "Family Guy" is not quite like any other show I've ever seen. A sense of humour like a fist in the face and a bunch of head cases for the roster of, ahem, "people", that make up these characters are taking animation to a new, hilarious depravity.

Seth Macfarlane and Alex Borstein are at least half of the voices in a typical episode (or seem to be). How a blithering idiot of a Rhode Island dad and husband, an erudite pooch and an evil infant modelled on some cross between Rex Harrison and Satan all come from the same voice-over genius is one of television's great mysteries. Borstein is the "sensible" mom and wife, as well as so many other females who pop up for a couple seconds or the better part of half an hour. Her talents get a much broader and deeper workout here than on "Mad TV", where a lot of material wasn't fully suited to her incredible energy and intelligence.

Some jokes make me wince (and still laugh) years after first hearing them (like anything involving "Diff'rent Strokes" or the late Bob Crane). I don't know if FOX has a censor at all or if they're just asleep when some really way out lines are written into any script. Things sure have changed since Jack Paar got into trouble for saying "water closet" back in the early 60s!

It's mind boggling that this is in syndication and more popular now than "The Flintstones" were forty years ago. Wherever "cartoons" are headed in the 21st century, you can bet the power of disc sales will make execs pay much closer attention to whatever they're ready to cancel from now on. The voices of millions are being heard at cash registers!

My favourite stories so far are really like an unofficial hour of two episodes. 1:"The Thin White Line" and 2: "Brian Does Hollywood", where after developing a cocaine habit while working as a drug sniffing canine for the Quahog police department, he goes out to smoggy California to live with his cousin Jasper and break into the movies. Better than any others for summing up the "everybody is fair game for a joke" ethos we've come to know and love (or despise).
