Product Description

The entire fifth season of the animated sitcom. The Griffins are an average North American family living in an average North American home in an average North American town. The dad Peter is a big TV fan; mom Lois is a former heiress who gave up her riches to marry the man she loves; 16-year-old Meg is a drama queen eager to be accepted by her peers; 13-year-old Chris likes his food and has the beginnings of a TV habit which could grow to equal his dad's; baby Stewie is a malevolent genius with plans for complete global domination; and martini-guzzling Brian is, well, the family dog. The episodes comprise: 'PTV', 'Brian Goes Back to College', 'The Courtship of Stewie's Father', 'Fat Guy Strangler', 'The Father, the Sun and the Holy Fonz', 'Brian Sings and Swings', 'Patriot Games', 'I Take Thee Quagmire', 'Sibling Rivalry', 'Deep Throats', 'Peterotica', 'You May Now Kiss the....Uh....Guy Who Receives', 'Petergeist' and 'Griffin Family History'.

From Amazon.co.uk

The debates have already been raging across the Internet over whether Family Guy has peaked, whether it’s the funniest show on television at the moment, and whether it’s better than The Simpsons, or some way behind it. Yet while most will agree that season five isn’t the best the show’s creators have produced, don’t let that blind you to the sheer joy contained within this DVD set.

The highlights of Family Guy for many, of course, are Stewie the ingenious baby and the family’s dog Brian (arguably the sanest one of the lot), and both are in fine form here. And while this series again allows many of the supporting characters a space in the limelight, it’s Stewie and Brian who remain responsible for some of Family Guy’s funniest moments. Bluntly, there are plenty of them.

Still, there’s little getting away from the fact that season five lacks the spark that energised the superb first two or three series, and as a result, there are episodes here that are good where they were once great. There are, still, plenty of examples of the old magic, and it’s still primarily a real pleasure that’s pretty much guaranteed to raise laughs from those who don’t mind their entertainment with a bit of edge. But it’ll be interesting to see where Family Guy goes from here, and whether its real glory days are permanently consigned to the past. --Jon Foster

Format: DVD
series 5 or in america part two of series 4,family guy returns with a no nonsense style again,actually strike that from the record for most of this is nonsense,daft,cynical,cruel,completely removed from political correctness and border line insane but isnt that why we love family guy,i will take that as a yes.

Here we are feasted with another 14 episodes and they are all great,some are more funny than others in truth,but all are entertaining,all are warped and all are sharper than a suitcase of blades.Family guy challenges everything,and takes no prisoners,celebrities are beaten down in family guy,few are left with their pride intact.

The characters of the griffin family again are portrayed as a unit of fools and we have to admire that,the recurring back up characters again shine such as quagmire who gets engaged and loses his traits,much to peter griffins horror,we view much more beside,in fact too much to mention,but this is comedyy that wont suit everyone and im sick of comedies that cater for the needs of the majority anyway so there you have it,a brief summary but one you shouldnt avoid.

this is the first time ive ever felt the need to review something ive purchased. having been a fan of family guy since it first hit british tv, i have been gobsmacked at the consistency and constant new and fresh material used. every new season just gets better and better. i really did think that because of the short amount of time since season 4 that this time id feel a little let down. how wrong could i be.....this is the best season by far, it is such comic genius mixed with un-pc hilarity, insanity and stupidity that it really does have no competition. it combines so many references to my youth as a 35 year old that it is easy to relate to unlike alot of american productions which tend to refer to american institutions and celebrities that leave us english wondering what is so funny. family guy works for me and i think this is the best so far, absolutely spot on, the word funny just doesnt do it justice...........genius!!!!!

The Family Guy guys have done it again. Pure brilliance. Admittedly, the continuous references to Shows, Celebrities, and events in America do confuse, but this is still the greatest cartoon ever made. EVER. Don't even hesitate te buy. As an avid watcher, I would reccomend all seasons, but particularly four and five. The show has matured, but not in a comic sense. The gags are still of the most immature and lewd nature, but I challenge anyone to sit through The Fat Guy Strangler and not fall about laughing. The simple reality is that Family Guy is the best show ever to have graced DVD, and can be enjoyed by all. In Season 4 Peter is actually confirmed to be mentally retarded. Magic.

Although many have said that Family Guy has started to run out of steam, I would disagree completely - I bought it recently to finish the collection so far and, in my opinion, it is the funniest of the lot. The development of Stewie's character from completely evil in series 1 (although funny, was beginning to get old) to the wry, camp character we see here is the best thing the writers could have done. The take-offs of Star Wars and Indiana Jones are just priceless (the Sandman Choir for example), among others, and the general level of writing is top notch. I would list my favourite episodes but, to be completely honest, every one in this series is fantastic! Bring on series 6!!

Having brought the previous 4 seasons of family guy, i was looking foward to the latest installment,and i wasnt dissapointed.

The show remains as consistant as ever and the gags are bang on. Yes I will admit that on occasions the setups for the trademark "Like the time I..." cut-to gags aren't always that smooth, but you easily forgive them for it because the end joke will always have you in stiches. The storylines remain fresh and excellently written. ("PTV", "The Griffin Family History" and "Peterotica" are my own personal favourites)And there's the fantastic one-liners and un-P.C humour that we've come to expect from FG, and they dont let us down. The animation too is also worth mentioning, with some really impressive looking scenes and effects in many of the episodes.

And also you get added bonus of commentaries on EVERY episode this time around from Seth MacFarlane and Co, and a whole load of deleted scenes which is the iceing on a very delicious Family Guy cake. (CAUTION - Just a metaphor, do not attempt to eat the DVD as it will probably, amongst other things, affect your Statutory Rights)

So buy it. Most probably the best purchase you'll make this year.

As I've said before, Family Guy is the funniest, most clever comedy around to date. There is a joke moreless every 10 seconds which are all so obviously or discretely funny. Some jokes you don't get at all but laugh because they're funny in another way. It's not about the jokes though, the episodes do have a storyline!

Season 4 was a slight disappointment I have to say as I thought there were too many jokes. BUT! Season 5 is honestly the best. The episode storylines are in general much better and interesting whilst being funny e.g. Peter getting his own explicit TV Channel. In these episodes the jokes flood in.

Below are episodes and synopsis of them :).

1. PTV - The FCC censor explicit content resulting in Peter creating his own explicit TV channel - PTV. This leads to the FCC censoring real life. Highlight - Ozzy Osbourne at a gig with a sandwich

2. Brian Goes Back To College - After Brian gets a job at the New Yorker but gets fired for not graduating, he goes back to college to finish off his education. Highlight - Stephen Hawking

3. BEST EPISODE The Courtship Of Stewie's Father - Stewie is forced to spend more time with Peter by Lois. Because of this, Peter realises that Stewie will only laugh and have fun with 'fat man' when he harms Lois. Highlight - Quagmire in the bar with sound muted because of Stewie and him doing sex positions.

4. Fat Guy Strangler - Lois discovers she has a brother who has been in an Asylum for many years and she gets him out. Several 'fat guys' go missing which is because of a certain trauma that happened to Lois's brother. Highlight - Bobby Mcferrin falling down the stairs
