Editorial Reviews

Family Guy lives! That's great news for the devoted fans who watched in record numbers the reruns on Cartoon Network and made the Family Guy DVDs bestsellers. It's bad news for Mel Gibson, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, Jimmy Fallon, Rob Schneider, Skeet Ulrich, Corey Haim, My Two Dads, and other pop-culture detritus this show's writers take infinite delight in kicking when they're down (or up, for that matter). The long, long, awaited fourth season begins with a bravado broadside at Fox, which canceled Family Guy in 2002. Peter Griffin (voiced by series creator Seth MacFarlane) recites a litany of 29 doomed replacement shows beginning with Dark Angel and ending with Greg the Bunny. From there, it's like the Griffins never left. The 13 episodes are just as dense with bodily function jokes, surreal nonsense, gratuitous pop-culture references (the more obscure, the better), and edgier gags that recklessly cross the line on any number of levels ("Maybe I was wrong about you," Jodie Foster says to John Hinckley in the episode, "Model Misbehavior." "Maybe I was wrong about all men.").

The new season rewards longtime viewers with appearances by such series icons as the Greased-Up Deaf Guy and the Evil Monkey in Chris's closet, and makes no concessions to newcomers to the show (who will no doubt be scratching their heads over the more than two-and-a-half-minute digression in "Blind Ambition," in which Peter's nemesis, the Giant Chicken, returns to continue the smackdown that started in the season 2 episode "Da Boom." In "World Domination: The Family Guy Phenomenon," one of the bonus features included on this three-disc set, MacFarlane proclaims these new shows to be "the best we've done." A bold claim, but often enough, one is laughing too hard to prove otherwise. One minute, Family Guy dazzles with inspired animation (In "Breaking Out Is Hard to Do," Chris reaches for a carton of milk at the supermarket and finds himself pulled in to A-ha's classic music video, "Take on Me"). The next, it's wallowing in vomit ("8 Simple Rules for Buying My Teenage Daughter"). In addition to the freewheeling episode commentaries, this set also includes a great bonus, excerpts of cast "table reads" of two episodes. Back to the "World Domination" featurette. MacFarlane states, "It's the first time since we've been doing (the show) that I think it's safe to say that we're here to stay for awhile." Are you listening, Fox? --Donald Liebenson

Product Description

Fans will have to wait no longer for the next Volume of Family Guy on DVD! The hilarious first part of Emmy nominated Season 4 will have you laughing like you've never laughed before. Edgier and more irreverant than ever, you'll forget you've ever heard the term "Politically Correct!" The must-have DVD of the season -- any self-respecting guy will own Family Guy Volume 3 on November 29th.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but... December 4, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Make no mistake, Family Guy Volume well below the standard set by Volumes 1 and 2, but it is still very good. With the exception of a few episodes (most notably, 'Don't Make Me Over'), Family Guy still retains the same off the wall humor that was prevalent in previous seasons, and thankfully, much less singing.

The worst aspect about Family Guy Vol. 3 is that it only contains the first 13 episodes of Family Guy. Fox, not content with milking Family Guy with 'The Freakin' Sweet Collection', have split the 4th production season into three DVD titles: 'Family Guy Vol. 3', 'Family Guy Vol. 4', and 'Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story' Vol. 3 is half the running time of Vol. 1, and of course, not half the price.

This allows Fox to push out the third volume before Christmas rather than wait until all of season 4 has aired. The second half of Season 4 is notably funnier and comparable to previous seasons in terms of quality...but does not appear on this disc.

The drop in quality and the lack of actual episodes on this volume may leave a sour taste in your mouth.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's back, but... December 24, 2005
Format:DVD
First off, I must say how thrilled i am that family guy is back. It has long been my favorite, and these new episodes are nice to see. However, it seems that at least in this season, the creators had to fall back on a number of laugh strategys that aren't really funny. For example, the repeater: where a charecter repeats himself over and over and over. or the progressor: ex, where Stewie reiterates his point about Brian's novel for 30 seconds. These things are not that funny!!! Also, Stewie is no longer an evil baby genius bent on world domination or matricide. There was a not a single attempt on Lois' life during a single episode. BRING BACK THE OLD STEWIE. I can't be too hard on this show, as i trully do love it, but it seems that the writers need some new joke ideas, and need to return to the old stewie charecter.

4.0 out of 5 stars In transition--I hope. September 20, 2005
Format:DVD
Let me preface this opinion--opinion, because not many of the reviews on Amazon are actually reviews--by saying that Family Guy is probably my favorite animated television series ever. I really am a die-hard fan. I wrote a few letters to the CEO of FOX Broadcasting. I was in there begging for more seasons. I was on cloud nine when we got them.

This season has been good. Really, it has. I don't think many would argue that it was Family Guy's best, but it still remains better than 99% of everything else on TV. It's the typical nonlinear, almost psychotically random humor that has made the show a classic. But I've got my complaints, which are listed below. Which is why I gave it 4 stars and not the 5 I've given the other volumes. Rate me down if you're so fickle that you cannot stand a reviewer who doesn't give everything Family Guy 5 stars. I'm just being honest.

The first few episodes are really obviously bleeding over from American Dad. Go through your Family Guy DVD collection, and you'll find plenty of political jokes--but they're just off things. The first few episodes of this season come off really bitter and anti-Republican. It cools off and returns to good natured poking-fun-at-everyone later on, but it made me roll my eyes enough for me to list it here.

As reviewers have stated, its shifts are somewhat overused and formulaic. There were a lot of "remember the time I..." jokes in old episodes, and they are BRILLIANT. Even most of this season's were brilliant. But it seems like they're squeezing way too many into each episode and not relying on normal jokes to carry a part of the weight. The episodes suffer.

It seems like Seth is struggling to catch back up with every other show that has been running since Family Guy was canceled. Mel Gibson jokes?

Where's the rest of Season 4?
The remaining season 4 episodes were released in Vol. 4 (save for the last three, the original versions of which are part of "Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story" - you'll have to get the TV versions from repeat airings).
