suffers from simpsonitis, 1 May 2006
this, the fourth series of family guy, was for me a massive disappointment. it seems that now family guy has achieved mass popularity it can now rely on badly storied episodes, celebrity cameos and increasingly annoying in-jokes (greased up naked deaf guy, the evil monkey in chris' closet) to get it by (much like how the simpsons has become). series 4 has these traits in spades and made for a particlarly depressing viewing first time around. although the episodes get better as you repeatedly watch them, they're still nowhere near the greatness of series 2 and 3.
if you want a more refreshing, original adult animation then give american dad a look. but i sincerely hope this is the last series of family guy before it goes downhill even more.
