Product Description

Product Description

The complete first season of the animated sitcom. The Griffins are an average North American family living in an average North American home in an average North American town. The dad Peter is a big TV fan; mom Lois is a former heiress who gave up her riches to marry the man she loves; sixteen-year-old Meg is a drama queen eager to be accepted by her peers; thirteen-year-old Chris likes his food and has the beginnings of a TV habit which could grow to equal his dad's; baby Stewie is a malevolent genius with plans for complete global domination; and martini-guzzling Brian is, well, the family dog. Episodes comprise: 'Death Has a Shadow', 'I Never Met the Dead Man', 'Mind Over Murder', 'Chitty Chitty Death Bang', 'A Hero Sits Next Door', 'The Son Also Draws' and 'Brian: Portrait of a Dog'.

From Amazon.co.uk

Family Guy shouldn't work at all. Even by the witless standards of modern television, it is breathtakingly derivative: does an animated series about the travails of a boorish, suburban yob with a saintly wife, a hopeless son, a clever daughter and a baby sound familiar at all? Even the house in Family Guy looks like it was built by the same architects who sketched the residence of The Simpsons.

However, Family Guy does work, transcending its (occasionally annoyingly) obvious influences with reliably crisp writing and the glorious sight gags contained in the surreal flashbacks which punctuate the episodes. Most importantly, the show's brilliance comes from two absolutely superb characters: Stewie, the baby whose extravagant dreams of tyrannising the world are perpetually thwarted by the prosaic limitations of infanthood, and the urbane family dog Brian--Snoopy after attendance at an obedience class run by Frank Sinatra. Family Guy does not possess the cultural or satirical depth of The Simpsons--very little art in any field does. But it is a genuinely funny and clever programme. --Andrew Mueller

Format: DVD
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.

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.

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]

Animated sitcoms seem to have a niche that they aim for, the Simpsons is a family show, Futurama tends to the sci-fi fans we don't want to say we are, South Park is for the foul mouthed inner child in all of us. Family Guy has a stranger target.
Family Guy is the comedy equivalent to that piece of chocolate cake you nibble away at when you're supposed to be losing weight. You know it's wrong, but it's richer and more filling than anything else in your diet, that you can't help but cut yourself another piece.
It's the same with this, you know it's wrong to laugh about jokes about race, disability and other taboo subjects, so it shocks you to hear them, but when you see them in the nature of the show, they're either too surreal to accept as being true, like Hitler with his own TV show, or to show how unintentionally stupid and insensitive some characters are, like Peter's comments about his neighbour in a wheelchair who's better than him in pretty much every way, and it's because the writers find a way to talk about such taboo material in such an open way which exposes our dumb prejeduces, that adds a little shock to the humour because you never expect a show like this to be so upfront about it, and it's that shock that keeps you on the edge of your seat so you can try to catch the next one.
If any of what I've said puts you off watching it, then don't watch it, the show doesn't pull any punches, but if you're curious about how a baby can get away with saying he's "Cuckoo for Crack" or how you could get away with laughing to that and many other desktop-startup-worthy jokes and quotes, then go ahead and sound-proof the doors and windows so the neighbours won't complain from the fits of laughter when this arrives in the mail.
