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.

Versions of the show that air in syndication often have their commercial breaks in different places than the original network airings. This results in some rather jarring transitions that were not present in the original broadcasts, and commercials in strangely inappropriate places. One good example of this is that Peter introduced the cutaway about a secret place for his porn, then it went commercial, and the cutaway did not play until after the commercial break! See more
