Product Description

Meet the Griffins: Peter, the big, lovable oaf who always says what’s on his mind. Lois, the doting mother who can’t figure out why her baby son keeps trying to kill her. Their daughter Meg, the teen drama queen who’s constantly embarrassed by her family. Chris, the beefy 13-year-old who wouldn’t hurt a fly, unless it landed on his hot dog. Stewie, the maniacal one-year-old bent on world domination. And Brian, the sarcastic dog with a wit as dry as the martinis he drinks. The animated adventures of his outrageous family will have your whole family laughing out loud.

Amazon.com

To the ranks of shows too brilliant and outrageous for prime time (The Ben Stiller Show, Andy Richter Controls the Universe), add Seth McFarlane's Family Guy. This animated series, which debuted after the 1999 Super Bowl, simply sparked too much controversy and offended too many sensibilities to survive (Entertainment Weekly dubbed it "the Awful Show They Just Keep Putting on the Air"). That the Fox network also played hackysack with its schedule, ensuring viewers would not be able to find it, sealed its fate (it was cancelled in 2002). This boxed set containing all 28 episodes from the first two seasons is payback for the show's devoted cult following, who may be moved to echo the words of infant Stewie Griffin, the megalomaniacal 1-year-old bent on matricide and world domination: "Victory is mine!"

The dysfunctional Griffins of Quahog, Rhode Island, invite comparisons to The Simpsons. The testicular-chinned father, Peter Griffin, is a clueless oaf in the Homer mold. "Peter, what did you promise me last night?" asks his long-suffering wife Lois in one episode. "That I wouldn't drink at the stag party," he replies. "And what did you do?" she asks. "Drank at the stag part--oh ho ho, I almost walked into that one," he cackles. Other family members include teenage daughter Meg, a desperate high school social pariah; 13-year-old son Chris, a chip off his father's blockhead; and Brian, the family's sarcastic talking dog. But this series' true inspiration is football-pated Stewie (voiced by McFarlane, who earned an Emmy), who was born to be a Bond villain once he escaped his mother's "ovarian bastille." Family Guy recklessly ventured where The Simpsons feared to tread. In one episode, Meg's one and only friend turns out to be the member of a suicidal cult. In another, Death (voiced by Norm McDonald) becomes an unwanted houseguest. Each episode plays fast and furious with surreal flashes (in one episode, Peter turns his house into a puppet) and pop-culture references and TV, movie, and commercial parodies that invite repeated viewings. Freed from its own family-hour bastille and the whims of dim network executives, Family Guy can be appreciated at last on its own profane, sacrilegious, and irreverent terms. Welcome to the DVD family, Griffins. --Donald Liebenson

Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I had already owned the first two movies on DVD. But when i saw this set for only 22.99 here on Amazon on Blu Ray, I thought that the deal was too good too pass up. Based on the Amazon description, I wasn't expecting much. Just the BDs and the Bonus features listed which were for the new film. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised when i got this today! Every film includes a digital copy, something not listed by Amazon in the description. In addition, it looks like all the bonus features from the past releases are still there, something that was also not listed by Amazon when I purchased. All this, 3 great BD titles plus digital copies plus tons of bonus stuff..... all for under 8 dollars per title. Can't beat that. Here is a full rundown of the bonus features listed for each title:

Blue Harvest:

*Audio Commentary from Seth Macfarlane and director, producers, writers, and editors
*A Conversation with George Lucas
*The Making Of Blue Harvest
*Animatic Version of Blue Harvest
*Family Guy Star Wars Clip Show( my favorite bonus feature from the past releases)
*Uncensored audio track

Something Something Something Darkside:

*Audio Commentary
*Fact Up Version of the feature( kinda like those old VH1 pop-up videos, with fun facts popping up throughout the movie)
*Poster Art Featurette
*Sneak Peak at the next feature with Table read

It's a Trap!

*Audio Commentary
*A very Special message from Dart Stewie
*Star Wars Trivial Pursuit: The ultimate Challenge
*Drawing with Peter Shin
*Sock Puppet Outtakes
*Animatic
*Making The Scene featurette

That oughta keep you busy for a while, eh? And then there is the feature itself.

Format:DVD
The classic animated series "Family Guy", follows up the success of its return to the Prime Time lineup, with a DVD movie, "Stewie Griffin, the Untold Story". The film is a three part story wrapped around and intro and wrap up that parodies a Hollywood premiere and party.

The jokes fly fast and bawdy and pull no punches. Every pop culture reference no matter how obscure and some of the more controversial issues of the day are tossed in, and for the most part, work.

The story follows the evil genius Stewie, who after a near death experience decides to change his ways as Hell does not hold much appeal for him. After the family gets Tivo, Stewie spots a person on television that is a spitting image of him. Convinced that the man is his real father, Stewie and the family dog Brian, join the hormonally driven Quagmire on a cross country trek.

When Stewie reaches the coast he is shocked to discover the true identity of the man which will propel the remained of the story.

While the show has a few misfires, it is mostly filled with one effective joke after another. The laughs were constant and I found myself enjoying every moment of the film. The laughs are very good, and if you are a fan of the show and do not mind some biting, and crude humor, this is a great escape.

Fans of the show will love the usual interplay of the characters and the familiar style and pacing as the film plays out like a regular episode of the show, as it was initiated as a three part episode. The inclusion of segments that would not have likely made it past the networks Standards and Practices department only ads to the enjoyment of the show as it is nice to see a shown known for pushing the envelope taking steps that it would not otherwise be able to take.

4 stars out of 5.

5.0 out of 5 stars All the episodes that aired in seasons 1 & 2 April 9, 2003
Format:DVD
Family Guy only had a three season run (I think after a year of silence it's safe to say there won't be anymore). These two DVDs make up over half of the 50 episodes in the series. Despite what you may have heard, these 28 episodes entail every episode that aired in the first two seasons. Because of Season 1's late start, a lot of season 1 episodes were pushed into season 2, which in turn pushed some season 2 episodes into season 3.
The series starts of very strong for a first-time viewer. The episodes are packed tight with jokes and often go off on wild tangents. The early stories are a little weak, but they pick up in the second season where the series gets even more creative. Definately something that keeps getting better through the second season. The third season was a little weaker, so if you were only getting one of the two sets, I'd recommend this one.
If you've never seen Family Guy, then be warned: it's not for everyone. It's got crude humour, and isn't afraid to poke fun at just about anything, despite what popular opinion might be.
The DVD set also comes at a relatively cheap price, considering you're getting 28 episodes of Family Guy goodness. The third season set would most likely entail the other 21 episodes (22 if they include the unaired "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein") and thus in two purchases you can have all of Family Guy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Blu-Ray Transfers except for the DVD-quality Disc 1 December 22, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
First, the bad news... if you are buying this whole TRILOGY package instead of just the newest parody titled "It's a Trap" so you can include the first Star Wars parody in Blu-Ray format, SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!

I really wanted to see SOME KIND OF picture quality improvement like the 2 newer parodies on Blu-Ray. After viewing disc 1, I just have to assume it was a primitive "upconvert" to the Blu-Ray format. There was NO improvement in the sharpness of the drawn lines, colors are standard-def bland, and stair-stepping is evident in the resolution. Of course, disc 1 is still full screen as expected, so "Family Guy: Blue Harvest" gains absolutely nothing on Blu-Ray over the previous DVD version.

Now, the other two discs are very good on Blu-Ray with sharp lines and colors that really pop! Nice transfer, and the Blu-Ray difference in quality is striking even for animated content without complex textures.

All 3 discs are entertaining parodies of the original Star Wars trilogy, but like the TV show I'm sure they will offend some people some of the time. You probably knew that already ; )

In summary, if you already own the first two, go ahead and buy "It's a Trap" on Blu-Ray or DVD to complete your library. New good laughs, even if not as fresh as the first two. If you don't have the both the first and second films, it might be cheaper to go ahead and buy this TRILOGY package instead!
