Trivia

Peter's phrase of choice when climaxing during sex is "Shazam!" Cleveland's phrase of choice in the same situation is "...and boom goes the dynamite." (albeit spoken in an unexcited monotone voice as Cleveland usually speaks.) See more »

Goofs

In "No Chris Left Behind", the Morningwood Academy sign has "NO IRISH" crossed out and "IRISH OK" written under it. The next time we see the sign, there is no trace whatsoever of either line of the Irish text. See more »

Quotes

Brian Griffin: This was even stupider than that time that Peter locked his keys out of his car.

and Boom Goes the Dynamite.
30 September 2009 | by (Sherwood Forest) – See all my reviews

It was 8 years ago that I wrote a review on Family Guy. I thought better to start fresh than to update it. Thankfully the show has lasted all of these years and is making some crazy episodes. The show becomes more and more daring, but I think unlike when it first came around we are not surprised to see what this show does. Imagine all those years ago when Family Guy was canceled if it was not brought back. That would have been a sad affair. This show is exciting and edgy and I love it. I do understand that kids tend to watch shows like this because it is a cartoon and it is not appropriate for children. We are in a different age and for many years (thanks to shows like the Simpsons) cartoons are not just for kids. Some are for adults.

Enjoy.
