Product Description

Get ready for five deliciously absurd chapters in the lives of America's most twisted animated family! These are the hand-picked, hands-down favorite episodes of Seth MacFarlen, the delightfully demented genius behind "Family Guy". He'll also treat you to an inside look at the long-awaited return of the series, as well as his newest TV brainchild, "American Dad." What a guy. What a family.

What a "Family Guy" treat!

The unprecedented resurrection of Family Guy disproves Neil Young's maxim that "Once you're gone, you can never come back." Unceremoniously canceled in 2002, the irreverent animated series proved to be a phenomenal seller on DVD, prompting not only a rerun revival on basic cable, but also a new season. For those who have only recently made the acquaintance of the dysfunctional Griffins, this five-episode sampler is representative of the series' "nothing is sacred" comic universe. Creator Seth MacFarlane chose well: "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein," which was banned during the series' original run; "Lethal Weapons"; "To Live and Die in Dixie"; "I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar"; and "Road to Rhode Island." In addition to the restoration of a previously censored gag involving Osama Bin Laden in "Rhode Island," what does this collection bring to the party for the Family Guy fan who has everything? Four new episode commentaries, the best of which features MacFarlane in character as chain-smoking, martini swilling, talking dog Brian, and megalomaniacal infant Stewie for "Rhode Island." There is also an interview with MacFarlane about why he chose these episodes, and a fitfully amusing sneak peak at MacFarlane's new series, American Dad. But as this collection reminds us, Family Guy is a tough act to follow. --Donald Liebenson

4.0 out of 5 stars For casual Family Guy fans only September 13, 2005
Pretty much produced as a promo for the long awaited return of Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy (and the premiere of his new adventure into animated lunacy, American Dad), Family Guy: The Freakin' Sweet Collection contains five of MacFarlane's favorite episodes (the unaired When You Wish Upon a Weinstein, the unedited Road to Rhode Island, To Love and Die in Dixie, I Am Peter Hear Me Roar, Lethal Weapons) which will no doubt leave the viewer in stitches. MacFarlane provides colorful commentaries on each episode (and even provides one as both Brian and Stewie on Road ro Rhode Island which is worth the price of admission alone), and there are other assorted extras as well, including previews of the new Family Guy and American Dad. In the end, whether this is worth purchasing is up to the viewer. If you don't already own the best-selling season sets and are just a casual fan, this is worth picking up, but if you do own each season, there is no point in picking this up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Word from the casual fan. January 29, 2006
In my opinion, these first three seasons are better and much funnier than the resurrection season, simply because the gags are much more solid and give the episodes a LOT more replay value than the new season itself.

These five episodes are hand-picked favorites by none other than creator Seth MacFarlane. They are:

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein: Peter wishes upon a star for a Jew for better account protection and later becomes convinced that Chris will become better at school by becoming a Jew himself. Not one of the greatest, but still pretty funny. And it's easy to see why this episode was banned from airwaves. 7/10

Road to Rhode Island: A classic. Plain and simple. In order to forget his abandonment from his mother, Brian tries to bring Stewie home after Stewie's trip to see Lois's parents' property. Unfortunately, Brian and Stewie end up losing their plane tickets and goes on a journey back to Rhode Island on foot. A blend of heart and humor from beginning to end. Even the cut Osama Bin Laden scene was a hoot. 9/10

To Love and Die in Dixie: One of my all-time favorites! The Griffins are sent to the deep south after the criminal Chris placed the finger on for a grocery robbery escaped from jail. Rippingly hilarious! 10/10

I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar: Probably one of the edgiest, yet funniest episodes ever written! Peter is sent to women's retreat to find his "feminine" side after being sued by a local employee for sexual harassment. 8/10

Lethal Weapons: The highlight of this DVD! Lois joins Bonnie for Tae-Jitsu classes and everybody follows her example. The family brawl towards the end of the episode is just plain hysterical.

By Alexiel
Some of it is really of no interest, some of it isn't. With "American Dad" out on TV with many episodes shown, the segment of the DVD that gives you insight into that show is really obsolete. I suppose some of the interviews might be interesing for looking for more insight on Seth MacFarlane, or for those who have never seen the man behind the show. The interview about Family Guy Season 4 is interesting in retrospect, I suppose.

The restored "Road To Rhode Island" doesn't really make it worth it. It's just the one deleted segment, and it really isn't funny. I notice the first review says "true fans have to have this scene," frankly, I think that's ridiculous and pedantic. If by "true" fans, you mean insanely obsessed, then I guess you'd be correct. It's not really offensive, but it doesn't add anything to the episode (which is a good one).

Now, it sounds like my review is completely negative. Why is this worth it?

Well, let me be honest. I love the commentaries on Futurama. I think they're among the best commentaries I've ever heard, and they just add to the rewatch value of the episodes. But a lot of Family Guy commentaries have been... just... blah. Maybe it's because they choose mediocre episodes to do commentaries on "Ready, Willing, and Disabled," "Death Lives," "Holy Crap," etc. But the commentaries on here really make this DVD worth it, I think. The commentary for "Rhode To Road Island" - I like it, it's great, it's hilarious, you should hear it. It's already one of my favorite episodes, this just made it better. The "To Love and Die In Dixie" commentary was okay, nothing special. But two episodes I'd always wished they had done commentaries on but didn't - "I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar" and "Lethal Weapons" - they finally did here! Excellent!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction for new fans June 19, 2005
People should know what this DVD is before buying it. Unlike the "complete" Family Guy box sets, this DVD only contains 5 episodes. The Freakin Sweet Collection is marketed for casual fans, and those who don't want to shell out 30 bucks for a Family Guy DVD. If you are a diehard Family Guy fanatic, this collection is probably not worth it for you. But if you are a new-comer, and want to see what Family Guy is all about, I strongly recommend buying this DVD.

Family Guy is probably the funniest cartoon on TV right now, and one of the most over the top and original shows ever created. This DVD contains five episodes handpicked by the creator as the best the series has to offer. Of course, alot of fans will all disagree on certain choices, but I think the 5 included here are all top quality.

The episodes contain bonous commentary and uncensored scenes that are not included on the other DVDs. A preivew of American Dad (a new show by the same creators) is also included. The episodes on this video are as follows:

Road to Rhode Island- A classic Brian and Stewie episode. Probably the most popular in the series.

When You Wish Upon a Weinstein- The popular banned episode. Peter hires a Jewish accountant because he believe Jews are good with money. Filled with lovely offensive humor that made the network too edgy to air it.

To Love and Die in Dixie- Another great episode, this time featuring the Family Guy crew living in the deep South. Plenty of redneck and confederacy jokes. Very funny.

I Am Peter Hear Me Roar- This episode rips on feminism. Peter gets in touch with his inner self and begins to think he is a woman.

Lethal Weapons- Not my favorite episode of all time, but excellent none-the-less.
