5.0 out of 5 stars there's an evil monkey in my closet!!!, 20 Sept. 2003
This review is from: Family Guy - Season 1 [1999] [DVD] (DVD)
Everyone compares this with the simpsons which is understandable, the family setup and the age groups and so on. Both are very good but I think that Family guy shades it. The reason is simple: Family guy has strengh in depth. The simpsons has the exceptional Homer, Mr Burns and a modicum of other good characters, but Family guy has three superstars in Peter, Stewie and Chris. In all three series there are moments so funny that it's hard to breath, i know that it sounds a bit sad to say that but it's true! It's also very rude and close to the bone on major topics but it seems to come up smelling of roses anyway! The subtle nature of some of the jokes is both clever and annoying at the same time as some of the jokes are targetted solely at the American auidence. That is only a minor fault. The show also boasts a plethora of hilarious side characters, watch out for Peters' sex crazed neighbour Quagmire and his strange boss who seems to be attracted to Peter Mr.Weed.I can't recommend this enough, once you watch season one i'm certain you'll order seasons one and two.Amazingly, the show was cancelled after three series and once you watch the DVD i'm sure you'll be as mystified as the rest of the people who've seen it.
