3.0 out of 5 stars suffers from simpsonitis, 1 May 2006
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Family Guy - Season 4 [DVD] (DVD)
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars you can't polish a turd, 26 Feb. 2006
i find this album so difficult to listen to and enjoy. the vast majority of songs are a mess and the lack of tunes and horribly cloudy lyrics make this ep a top drawer disappointment. it's an insult to definately maybe that this sold more copies in its first week

2.0 out of 5 stars uninspiring junk, 29 April 2005
its not so much the music that annoyed me than the insistence that each song is perforated with a plinkety-plonkety series of barbershop quartet style vocals that create a bizarre experience in your ear of some pretty good guitar music and a beachfront donkey ride at bognor regis. could appeal to some (see above reviews) but must be detested by as many. this is what a band would sound like if they were trying to recreate polyphonic ringtones. only there's 17 full length tracks of it. i give it 2 stars though because atleast its original.
