Editorial Reviews

Seth MacFarlane, the boyish, enthusiastic, prolific, and incorrigibly naughty creative mind behind Family Guy, is sort of an acquired taste. But judging by the long-running popularity of Fox's animated series (11 seasons and counting), lots of people have made that particular acquisition. He still has plenty of detractors, many of them loyalists of The Simpsons who still believe that Family Guy is a subpar rip-off. But after so many years, those objections have pretty much been shouted down by those who appreciate the anarchic farce and often surrealistic stream-of-consciousness comedy of the Quahog, Rhode Island, Griffin clan: Peter, Brian, Stewie, Lois, Chris, and Meg. MacFarlane holds a tight reign on the show, which literally couldn't be produced without him since he provides the voices for those first three Griffins. Their family dysfunction is nothing close to realistic, but there are still remnants of inspiration from classic '70s-era sitcoms that MacFarlane has credited as influences. The big difference is all the rudeness and crudity, as well as the sometimes borderline-offensive teasing of real celebrities or social issues that MacFarlane always holds in open season. That said, the show is absolutely an equal opportunity offender in which no person, political issue, illness, point of view, or handicap is sacred. MacFarlane has heard all the criticism and his response has always been a cheerful "lighten up!" and a twinkly eye. This three-disc package is not season 10, rather it is the remaining 14 episodes from season 9 with a handful of filler material. To single out a few episodes of note, "Brian Writes a Bestseller" is pretty close to classic with Brian the dog going on a tour to promote his self-help book, "Wish It, Want It, Do It," while the 1-year-old Stewie acts as his publicist. Brian caps his tour with an appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher, where he gets smacked down by the cartoon version of the actual host. It speaks to how beloved and popular Family Guy has become that so many actual celebrities open themselves up to whatever may come by putting in cameos playing themselves. (The best-known recurring names are Adam West as Quahog mayor Adam West and Patrick Stewart, who sometimes plays a well-elocuted character named Patrick Stewart.) Another standout episode in the set is "Road to the North Pole," an extended musical Christmas special in which Stewie and Brian set off on a holiday journey to assassinate Santa Claus. Then there's "German Guy," the saga of young Chris Griffin befriending a seemingly nice old neighbor named Franz who turns out to be a former Nazi. Creepy old Herbert tries to warn Chris away from his new friend, and the story builds to the slowest and perhaps most inspired fight scene ever staged. The episode is fodder for the set's best special feature: "Herbert and Franz: The Making of an Epic Fight Sequence," in which the writers show how they acted out such a ridiculous and hilarious situation in order to bring it to animated life. Other features include a segment about the care that went into the musical compositions for "Road to the North Pole," a handful of commentary tracks, animatic diagrams of how select episodes were developed, and the public ceremony for Adam West's star placement on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It's a nice package that shows Family Guy fully in its stride as one of the most popular animated TV shows ever created. --Ted Fry

3.0 out of 5 stars Its the remaining episodes from Season 9. October 4, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just to be clear to everyone, this is NOT SEASON 10. This is the remaining episodes from season 9.
The product description does not even state it as such either. Every place I have looked up shows season 10 with this cover but this is not the case. I rate this 3 stars due to this set not even mentioning air dates or any mention of it being season 9 episodes, not to mention how much space is filled with "junk" bonus material.

Here's what this set has:
DISK ONE
"Halloween on Spooner Street"
"Baby, you knock me out"
"Brian writes a best seller"
"Road to the north pole"
"New kindey in town"
SPECIAL FEATURES
-Deleted scenes
-Select Scene animatic for Baby you knock me out
-All I really want for xmas: music of road to north pole
-Audio commentary on select episodes

DISK TWO
"And I'm Joyce Kinney"
"Friends of Peter G"
"German Guy"
"The hand that rocks the wheelchair"
"Trading Places"
SPECIAL FEATURES
-Deleted Scenes
-Select Scene animatic for Trading Places & German Guy
-Audio commentary on Trading Places

DISK THREE
"Tiegs for two"
"Brothers and sisters"
"The big bang theory"
"Foreign affairs"
SPECIAL FEATURES
-Deleted Scenes
-Adam West star Ceremony
-Audio commentary on Big bang theory

3.0 out of 5 stars wait for the price drop August 22, 2012
Format:DVD
I have been a huge fan of family guy since it came on. I make sure to buy next volume whenever its released on DVD so I can have all the episodes available to me. It's always great to have episodes nobody has seen before so you can watch them together.
Every year it seems like they put less episodes on the DVD release, and now are behind putting volumes out. (We all know that they are)
They do it on purpose. instead of putting episodes on the volume, they pack it full of unnecessary bonus features nobody (Even die hard fans) care to watch, put 3 episodes on each disc to make the box bigger, and they jack up the price and expect you to pay more for it.
They stopped caring about making people laugh, and decided to get greedy.
I'm getting tired of spending the extra money for old episodes left over from 2 seasons ago. Dont waste your money, wait for the price to drop, or buy it used.
I'm not a very big Family guy fan anymore. It's not even anywhere near as funny as it used to be. You can tell they are running out of ideas. I'm surprised the show hasn't been cancelled again.
I have turned my attention to American Dad and the Cleveland Show. Don't buy these unless you're OCD like me and can't stand an unfinished collection.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just one issue here November 9, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love family guy and have just about all of it on DVD.
I have just one issue with this particular purchase. The cover image shown (blue) on the item purchase page is supposedly the hard paper sleeve that the plastic DVD case comes in.
In the one I received had no such sleeve, it was just the plastic case (very thin plastic) and the paper cover inside (the one with the flames)
Had the hard paper sleeve been included, as i assume its part of the packaging (an unboxing video on youtube showed the hard paper sleeve) perhaps the plastic case would not have been damaged in shipping.
An object of some sort punctured the back, It was bad enough to tear the inside paper but the disc itself was not damaged.
So I'll let it slide and keep it.
It's just that what I receive should be what is pictured

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Family Guy at its best January 18, 2012
Format:DVD
Quality-wise, this three-disc collection, already out in the UK, is a very mixed bag. The only true candidate for classic status among these 14 epsiodes (the remainder of Season Nine) is Brian Writes a Best-Seller, a brilliant comeuppance for the more than usually full-of-himself pooch. The rest are uneven. True, Halloween on Spooner Street has moments, Road to the North Pole improves on re-acquaintance -- as usual, the DVD episodes are raunchier than the broadcast versions -- and it's rare that you'll go all the way through an episode without one clever bit (like Patrick Warburton's linebacker-like version of the American Dad theme in the finale Foreign Affairs). But too many of the later ones come off like filler. For instance, the fight sequence in German Guy far exceeds its comedic life, while the full Jagger/Bowie Dancing in the Street video in Foreign Affairs is time-marking pure and simple. The extras provide some relief: outtakes from 13 episodes, select-scene animatics for two, the cross-promotional Beer Walk episode from The Cleveland Show (S2E9) and, when used on a DVD-ROM equipped PC, 15 clips, five clip mashups and nine songs (all exportable). And at least subsequent DVD releases should finally get back to a convenient seasonal basis for the first time since Vol. 2. But, overall, this represents a distinct drop-off in quality -- one that would continue into Season 10.

2.0 out of 5 stars Stale And Unoriginal September 28, 2012
By B.
Format:DVD
I use to be a big Family Guy fan, but I'm coming to realize Family Guy has not topped the first 3 seasons. In fact the show has very much regressed. Fans aren't complaining because Family Guy is changing or evolving, we are complaining because the writing is poor and repeated. Family Guy now seems targeted to a typical 15 year old male audience. Volume 10 in particular had some of the least appealing episodes to me. And the only character growth we see is Lois becoming a horrible person. I use to see Lois as a matriarch of a dysfunctional family, but now she is mean and cruel for no apparent reason. You would think by not releasing seasons the volumes would be considerably cheaper. This is not the case.
