Family Guy is one of the funniest animated shows I have ever watched for a long time. The best thing about it is that where other animated shows seem to run out of ideas quickly and become tired Family Guiy has come on in leaps and bounds seeming never to run out of ideas to support episodes. Another good thing about episodes is that most of them support at least two stories at a time so you get to follow two or more members of the family which keeps you interested until the end of the episode. Some of the jokes on the show are a bit risque with some jokes poking at tender subjects such as the OJ Simpson scandal, racism, drugs and sex but this is why it retains some of it's charm as some jokes will make you laugh out loud and others will shock you and make you laugh later. The one flaw of the show is a lot of the jokes are relevant to american pop culture so it's hard for a Brit to follow some of the gags but it doesn't get lost in american pop culture so us Limeys can still laugh. Some people may tell you to start with the second or third season but don't, get the seasons in order or you may not get some of the jokes or understand the storylines as some are relevant to previous episodes.

This was the first DVD that I ever purchased, owing to the fact that it was cheap, and that I'd seen the TV series, but not much. It was a spur of the moment purchase, and what a purchase it was.
Whilst showing no special features, this DVD has managed to become the most watched in my collection. The outrageous and controversial humour will literally have you holding on to your sides, and at the same time, you'll cringe in disbelief and question whether or not they're allowed to do this.
The two discs hold 14 episodes, none which are disappointing, and some, including the pilot, which are truly classic Television. What's more, these episodes are uncensored and uncut, meaning the parts they didn't - no, couldn't - show on Television are all here, and each one is as beautifully offensive as the last.
If you don't own this DVD, get it, right now. If you do, run a search for Season 2 and pick that up too. You'll be quoting all the best lines in no time.

I only recently came across Family Guy, but what a belated pleasant surprise it was !

The storylines all revolve around a rather dysfunctional and often quite odd family, headed by a gormless father, plus their friends/workmates.

The humour is often adult in nature, very rude and cerebral. This is one of the few recent comedy shows (and that includes The Simpsons) which genuinely makes me laugh, as opposed to 'just' smiling or getting the occasional chuckle.

Many of the jokes/plots might be deemed 'politically incorrect' as they take big swipes at particular sections of society, so it is quite possible some will take offence - you have been warned.

However, a large proportion of the gags are extremely original and regularly 'off the wall', which makes them all the more enjoyable...

The storylines are simple, but it is their unusual nature and the non-conformist characters (eg a talking dog, 'Brian' my favourite, and an ultra-intelligent/apparently psychopathic baby) which make Family Guy true entertainment.

One word of advice. If you can, search out the Region 1 DVD versions of Season 1 - 3 and 4 onwards (be warned: they are referred to as 'Volumes', not 'Seasons') as they not only contain Extras, such as Episode commentaries, but also show the episodes in the correct order (parity exists only for Season 4) !

For example :

The Family Guy, Vol. 1: Seasons 1 & 2 [DVD] [1999] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

Family Guy, Vol. 2: Season 3 [DVD] [1999] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

The Family Guy, Vol. 3: Season 4 [DVD] [1999] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC]

I have to say that I am quite new to Family Guy. I had watched the odd episode or two from the various series on television, but it wasn't until I purchased season one on DVD and actually sat down and watched it that I realised how good Family Guy actually is. I couldn't tare myself away from it. I was hooked and just wanted to watch episode after episode. Family Guy is compelling, addictive and above all else - very comical. Stewie is my favourite character for obvious reasons. (I myself was an egotistic compulsive power hungry infant set on world domination) 'Chitty Chitty Death Bang' and 'Death Is A Bi*ch' are my favourite episodes in the season. To think I wasted so much time watching other animated shows, while Family Guy was waiting to be discovered. I have four more seasons to catch-up on but if all episodes are to the same standard as the one's I've seen then I doubt it will take my long.

Any comparison with other shows of the genre (Simpsons, South Park, Futurama) are unfair. This show has a unique type of humour - almost to the point of surrealism. The gags can be read on so many levels and I can honestly say I've never managed to watch an episode without laughing out loud.
I'd be suprised if anyone were to mistake the names of the characters for those of the lesser cartoons. Peter Griffon could never be pictured as a 'Hank'.
If you enjoy Simpsons, but want a little more intelligent humour...
If you like South Park, but want your humour in a more subtle way...
If you enjoy King of the Hill, but would prefer to be entertained...
Family Guy is the show to see.
On video, it was great, on DVD - quality preserved forever, it's a must.
