Editorial Reviews

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.

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

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Great Show, Crappy DVD... December 12, 2005
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase

I'm a Family Guy fanatic. Best animated show on TV, by far. I pre-ordered this thing a long time ago. I can't get enough!

But this is just evil, man!

I put in the first disc from the set, and oh, what's this? An advertisement. Oh, hey, look, another advertisement! How sweet. Hey, thanks, guys! No worries, just press the menu button and skip the ads, right? Wrong. It's blocked. You have no choice but to watch the ads every time you start the DVD.

Luckily, my DVD player has a recall feature that gives you the option of returning to your old place if you stop and then restart. However, if it's on the menu screen when you turn it off, then it goes back to the beginning. Which means that, every time I turn off the DVD, I have to make sure that it's actually playing an episode when I hit the power button. Otherwise, I have to watch their two stupid commercials.

This really irks me. When I rent a dvd from Blockbuster or Netflix, I kinda expect to have to sit through some ads (it still irks me, though), but when I pay upwards of $30 for a DVD, I believe that it is reasonable to expect that, at the very least, I should have control over the pre-menu ads. The fact that I am locked into watching them each and every time I start up a disc shows what can only be described as complete disrespect for the consumer. Bloody hell, people, I already own the Family Guy movie---I don't need it hawked to me every time I want to watch Vol. 3!

Like I said, great show, and great season (the Pinocchio/Gipetto scene is already legendary), but getting screwed on the DVD technology like this is just...poor judgment on Fox's part. We consumers deserve better than this!

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).
