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!

There are still a few more episodes from Season Five that are not on this new Season Six DVD, which will presumably be released with the Season Seven DVD, alongside the first episodes of Season Six.

In fact, the first episode of Season Six (the actual series, not the DVD) is called Blue Harvest, a one hour special Star Wars feature. The whole of Star Wars Episode Four, Family Guy style, with Chris as Luke, Peter as Han, Lois as Leia, Stewie as Darth Vader, Brian as Chewbacca and Meg as the squid monster in the trash compactor! It will be released seperatley on DVD in January 2008.

This season is amazing, like all the others. Seth MacFarlane is a complete genius, i love this way this show takes the mick out of every day things, people, all kinds of stuff - and slaps them all together into a very witty and well animated cartoon. some people are very shallow and don't understand the humor, usually boring unimaginative people. if you have a sensor of humor and you want to be entertained, this is definitely worth watching. if your thinking about buying it........ buy it!

This was bought as a present for my son, so I have not viewed it. I have caught Family Guy on TV however, and enjoyed the iconoclastic mood and dreadful sexism and other prejudices!
Not for the stick-in-the-mud!
Challenging in the extreme, but if one has a sense of humour and an appreciation of one's fellow man/woman, it is easy to laugh at human foibles and disfunctions.

Certainly makes my life seem really peachy!

I'm a big fan of the show, but series 4 and 5 were really quite disappointing. Series 6 is much more consistent - each episode contains several genuinely funny gags, plenty of crude humour and even a little quality satire. Still not as well observed as the first three series but a decent return to form.

The Griffins are back for more misadventures in the town of Quahog. Likeable idiot Peter, who makes Homer Simpson look like the head of Mensa, long suffering wife Lois, eldest daughter and moaner Meg, idiot middle son Chris, baby Stewie still obsessed with killing Lois and ruling the world and also the smartest member of the family along with talking dog Brian and all their idiot friends and neighbours basically picking up where season 5 left off with no changes whatsoever. At first I wasn't going to bother with Family Guy thinking it would be nothing more than a rip off of The Simpsons or South Park and just full of low brow toilet humour but after giving in after hearing mostly good things and catching episodes on Fox and BBC3, it turns out surprisingly there is much more to it with some surprisingly sophisticated adult humour and spot on movie spoofs as good as The Simpsons used to do in their glory days back in the 90's. Yes it's a cartoon and yes there's a talking baby and talking dog, the 2 best characters for me in the series but don't be fooled into thinking it'll be good for the kids, this is strictly adults only, the 15 certificate and late night slots on Fox and BBC3 are well earned and is one to avoid if you are easily offended, but don't worry, Family Guy spoofs and insults everyone not just one group of people. As a lot of people have said, it's not really season 6, more like volume 6 with episodes missing and on other sets but still this is hilarious stuff and one of the best comedies on TV at the moment and still going strong with no signs of stopping. Seth McFarlane does a great job voicing Peter, Stewie and Brian with an excellent supporting voice cast including Mila Kunis, Alex Borstein, Seth Green and Adam West as himself.

Do not listen to the reviews saying that Family Guy is slipping. This season is the strongest yet with brilliant storylines and sharp gags.

I'll admit, havin only 13 episodes is a bit annoying but the material within more than makes up for it. Peter continues to amaze with his stupidity and this season continues to push the boundaries.

Of course there are 1 or two episodes that didn't make me laugh out loud as much as they should but overall it is a very funny season (with particular attention to Chick Cancer, Road to Rupert and the brilliant Tan Aquatic With Steve Zissou)

Some say the show has changed from the earlier seasons and it has, its become funnier.

With great episodes and loads of bonus features this is money well spent

Although not all the episodes are included in this box set, all the ones that are included are worth the money and the time: i cried with laughter sometimes, as Quagmire is a pilot, Stewie has a crush, Brian dates a stupid blonde, Peter....well he is just Peter, Meg is ignored and hated, Chris is still pretty clueless, and Lois tries to sort everyone, whilst staying sane at the same time. The extras are just as funny also, and all 13 episodes you can never get bored of. i laughed more and more, never getting bored. this is a great present to give someone, or to buy for yourself. So even if you cannot stand Family Guy, it is a great gift to give to someone else who likes it maybe more than you do!!!!!!!!

It's silly. It's offensive. It's random. It hardly follows the plot. BUT it's still brilliant.

Essentially more of the same, only some more consistently great episodes than the last couple of series and even holds a brilliant cutaway (the shows style) referencing the last Football World Cup.

Dispite the complains the price for 13 episodes is still much, much better than just about every Brit series ever (Which charges a similar price for 6 episodes) so it's still great value.

If you like silly adult humor you'll have to love Famly Guy.
