After an incident at the Emmys the FCC overreacts and begins to censor anything and everything that may be viewed as unpleasant. So Peter gets the idea to start his own cable network dedicated to all...
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
In the early seasons in the opening credits, the pictures on the wall of Chris, Meg and Stewie, in the background, have blurred faces. Later on however, their faces appear normally. See more »
The most frequent animation error seen in the show is the appearance of the eyebrows (and some cases the eyes). The eyebrows are known to disappear and/or reappear at times, or in rare cases even "duplicate", creating an extra pair of eyebrows (as seen on Lois' father when Peter meets him in "Death Lives").

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!
