Customer Reviews

As for the DVD sets, both volumes are well done.

Family Guy is like a combination of The Simpsons, South Park, and Futurama.

(I even notice some new jokes every time I watch an episode again)!

It is an unfortunate fact that in the politically correct age we live in that edgy comedy is categorized as offensive when it is really just being silly. That is exactly what happened to "Family Guy" a series that laid siege to every one of our sacred cows (religion, sex, violence, race relations, etc.), but did so in such a matter of fact manner, I find it hard to believe that anyone could have taken issue with it. Nonetheless, the series is no more; fortunately, we have the DVD compilations featuring every episode in its uncut hilariousness.
Season Three comprises twenty-one episodes, one of which was never aired on television. Actually, "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein" exemplifies my point about political correctness, as its silly, even complimentary view of Judaism could offend only the most supremely sensitive person. But enough with the negative, as there are some genuinely hilarious episodes on these discs. Moreover, since Fox aired them somewhat sporadically during the final season, it's likely there are one or two episodes that will be new to the viewer. For example, I had never seen "A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas" or "Road to Europe" both of which feature some of the best parody in the set. Other highlights include "A Fish Out of Water" which features a spectacularly fat Peter, "To Love and Die in Dixie" which is the best "Family Guy" tribute to a TV series with its "Dukes of Hazard" inspired storyline, and "Family Guy Viewer Mail #1" which features three shorts that abandon all pretense of a basis in reality and produce some the best sight gags ever seen during the show's run.
That said, anyone who buys this set probably already knows how funny this show is, but what makes this collection really impressive is the quality of the extras.

I have all the Simpsons series DVD releases as well as King of the Hill, South Park and, heck, even God, the Devil and Bob. The DVDs I play the most, though, are Family Guy. Every time I watch them, I appreciate something new. There are absolute absurd moments like when Peter is in the soundproof box so he can ignore Brian in "Screwed the Pooch" or when a hurricane blows away Asian reporter Trisha Takwanawa in "One if by Clam, Two if By Sea," hilarious lines like Peter proudly announcing that he's invited to a "polio" match with Lois' father, or sailors singing in Stewie's fantasy that he's "a worldclass poof" in "The Thin White Line," and cool references like Richard Simmons' `Sweatin' to Books on Tape' or Peter painting his car like the General Lee in "To Live & Die in Dixie" and then forgetting to roll the window down when Brian attempts to jump in like Luke Duke. There is just too much good stuff to mention. That is why these episodes do not get old. Contrary to what a previous review wrote, you CANNOT watch these episodes once. Now here's what you get:

Disc 1:

The Thin White Line: A listless Brian gets a job as a police dog due to his uncanny ability to sniff out drugs. Actually, he becomes too good at his job and ends up at a rehab clinic where Peter decides to join him: "I'm on vacation. Oh, and if they ask, I'm also on smack."

Brian Does Hollywood: The second part of Thin White Line. Brian goes to LA to find his calling and ends up directing porn. His flamboyant cousin Jasper is hilarious.

Mr. Griffin Goes to Washington: Peter's employer is taken over by a cigarette conglomerate and they make him president of the company. Includes an "appearance" by Martha Stewart.

It's just.. wow. Sometimes I'm amazed this show was aired, but I#m even more saddened that it was canceled. This show has an edge. It's politically incorrect humor at its best. With almost every episode, I would think "Oh my Goddess, he did NOT just say that!", and I would rewind it, and I would laugh.. This show picks on everyone... However, it does it with such an innocent smile and genuinely funny joke that it forces you to actually step back and laugh at yourself.
The show also has a way of saying things that will make your jaw drop, and then the conversation continues and what they said was totally innocent, relying on your own sick and dirty mind for the humor.
My only major complaint about this, which also holds true of the first boxed set, is the quality of the mpeg encoding. One would think that since the image is animated, with thick black lines and almost-no to no shading, they could have used a better encoding rate and the file size would still be small. As it is, if there is too much movement on the screen, and sometimes I don't know what triggers it, the image will "stutter".
If you are easily offended, just stay away from this show. If you can laugh at yourself (no matter what group you're in, they'll find a way to make fun of you), you'll like this show.
Stewie and Brian are my heros.

While cutting-edge comedy shows like "All in the Family," "Sanford and Son," heck even "Soap" -- couldn't make it to tv today because of their lack of political correctness, Fox quietly put on a show called "Family Guy", which is perhaps the funnies animated series in the history of television. With sarcastic wit, quick writing full of innuendo and dead-on pop culture references (or jabs), this show about the Griffin family -- dimwitted Peter, forgiving Lois, and their children: butch Meg, chunky Chris, and James-Bond-villain-in-diapers Stewie -- made millions of happy viewers fall off their sofas with laughter every week. But Fox caved a bit to the pressure of conservatives, who found the show distasteful, and began juggling the show or skipping weeks without showing an episode, until even the most die-hard fan couldn't find it in their TV Guide. Thankfully, this "Simpsons"-style-as-it-used-to-be-funny show has found its niche on Cartoon Network -- and every episode (including the never-aired, hilarious -- and Emmy-worthy -- "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein") is now available on DVD. Like the aformentioned "Simpsons" in its early days, "Family Guy" was never truly offensive because it offended everyone: Jews, Mormans, Catholics, Protestants, gays and lesbians, Blacks, Whites, Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, politicians, the rich, rednecks, the disabled, Margot Kidder, Martha Stewart, Jerry Seinfeld, William Shatner, The Pope, Britney Spears, 'N' Sync, the porn industry, the tobacco business, Kool-Aid, Raisin Bran, Mentos, "That Girl", "The Dick Van Dyke Show", "One Day at a Time", "60 Minutes" -- for real, NOTHING and NO ONE was out of bounds for this show. Which is why it was so brilliant, so funny -- and so tragic a loss when Fox wussed out and finally took it off the air.Read more ›
