"The Simpsons on acid!"
on 4 January 2008
Family Guy is and likely to remain way better than the Simpsons. Don't get me wrong but I love the Simpsons, but this is what it would be if no one told them to be aware they are a family show.
For the unintiated this is a cartoon about a family with an idiot father, a halfwit son, depressed daughter, hyper-intelligent baby, talking dog and with the mum as a comic feed.
Family Guy has not lost it's egde and while it's hard to pick out a classic like the Sinatra Jr episode from series 5, they're all of a good standard.
Stewie & Brian are paired up for more episodes and get a "Road" story again, which leads to some marvellous moments.
Some new ideas are tried e.g. Meg falling in love with Brian and Stewie temporarily loving his mother like a regular baby would.
Returning old favourites include the lovelorn Herbert and his half dead dog & Stewie's ex-dancing partner from series 3 Olivia.
There are the usual deleted scenes and commentaries plus a class in how to draw Peter.
If you love Family Guy, you have got to have this!
