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

Trivia

When Drew Barrymore was preparing the documentary Choose or Lose Presents: The Best Place to Start (2004), she contacted Seth MacFarlane to appear on it, and besides asked him to do a guest voice on the show. MacFarlane enjoyed her work so much as Mrs. Lockhart on season four, that he offered Barrymore the regular role of Jillian. See more »

It ran it's course about 12 years ago
17 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

Family Guy used to be the funniest animated sitcom and my favorite animated sitcom on TV. I was never a big fan of the Simpsons, South Park, King of the Hill or any other animated sitcom. This show falls somewhere between the mainstream family-friendly Simpsons and the overtly crass South Park. Nevertheless, it is about as un-PC as you can get and makes fun of virtually everyone.

However, beginning around 2006 shortly after coming back on-air this show started to go downhill and lost its edge. All of the jokes became centered around Quagmire's hatred of Brian or his overzealous sex life, cutaway bits that are drawn out to the point of awkwardness, constant pop culture references, or flashbacks that start along the lines of "This is more ____ than that time I _____" or "This is like that time I _____".

While this show has lost its originality and creativity it's still better than most of the mindless crap on TV today. I continue to watch reruns of the old shows on Adult Swim but once it gets past Season 4 (2005-2006ish) I stop watching.
