Product Description

Fasten your sofa belts for another fiendishly futile attempt at world domination for Stewie-and a diaper full of fun for "Family Guy" fans around the globe! Boasting laughs as big as Peter's waistline, these 14 hilarious episodes from Season Four find television's most outrageous animated family in all sorts of comically compromising situations. Don't miss out on this Fox TV DVD best seller--a 3 disc set available for $39.98 & $54.98.


Okay, let’s get one thing straight right off the bat: Family Guy is not, never has been, and never will be, The Simpsons. Nor is it South Park, King of the Hill, or any one of a number of other shows on Adult Swim. But yes, it is in many ways a rip-off of those other shows (especially The Simpsons; let’s not even pretend otherwise). But so what? By now, you either think the show’s funny, or you don’t, and the derivativeness either bothers you, or it doesn’t. Volume 4 is likely to just cement your feelings one way or the other, because this collection features some of the funniest, and the most offensive material yet. It’s also the most cohesive. The show has always been incredibly erratic, turning on a dime to fit in all those jokes from out of the blue that start with Peter saying "Boy, this is worse than that time when..." But by now, the writers and series creator/executive producer Seth MacFarlane have figured out how to more seamlessly integrate them into the show, and that’s just what it needed to really come together. In fact, the extra attention being paid to the show recently in the form of swipes from The Simpsons and especially South Park (which dedicated an entire episode to trying to kill off Family Guy) is evidence that this is probably the peak for the series. This volume is 14 episodes, and stand-outs include "The Courtship of Stewie’s Father," which gives more face time to creepy old man Herbert (brilliantly voiced by Mike Henry), and "The Father, the Son, and the Holy Fonz," in which Peter starts his own church dedicated to Fonzie from Happy Days. Of course, there is still the lingering question of who the real star of Family Guy is: Peter or Stewie? The little football-head gets his moments to shine in "Sibling Rivalry," in which he battles with half-brother Bertram, and... well, pretty much every other episode, as he continues to get many of the memorable lines. Along with the extra features, over 40 deleted scenes, extensive commentaries, and featurettes, you true fans will get more than your share of laughs from this collection, which is what you watch the show for in the first place. --Daniel Vancini

First off, what is with the selection screens? I have to adjust my television just to read the options! Anyway, several episodes here are up to the high standards of previous Family Guy seasons. My favorites are "PTV," "The Fat Guy Strangler," "Father, Son, and the Holy Fonz," and "You May Now Kiss..." (Jasper is funny). Others, however, I found to be mediocre or just plain bad ("Patriot Games"). There are not as many episodes I want to see over and over as there are on volumes 1-3, but this season is still good enough for 4 stars. There are a lot of extras on disc 3, too. 44 deleted scenes and you can select all and have them play one after the other (some of these jokes are better than the ones that got left in the shows). The featurettes are very interesting where many of the directors and artists are interviewed on what all is entailed in putting a show together. Also, these episodes are uncensored (there is an F-Bomb dropped or two) but there is a censored option (isn't it usually the other way around?). Anyway, here are the episodes:

Disc 1

"PTV": A wardrobe malfunction involving David Hyde Pierce at the Emmys causes the FCC to censor all tv--"The `bleep' Van `bleep' Show, Starring `bleep' Van `bleep.' So Peter starts his own network featuring such highbrow programs as "The Side-Boob Hour" and "Dogs Humping."

"Brian Goes Back to College": The New Yorker magazine is interested in Brian as a contributor but requires a college degree. Brian had dropped out of Brown University. It's strange to think of an animated dog in this way, but I'd always thought Brian was so cool and together. Hearing him lament about how he never finishes anything put a new spin on his character.

I've been anxiously awaiting the release of this collection since the end of the 3rd volume. But instead of boring you with all my details here it is, my review.

I received this edition for Christmas, actually, I received the Target Collector's Edition. With this edition (along with the DVD's) comes a book of Artist Series Postcards containing pictures of Peter, Quagmire, 2 of Brian, 2 of Stewie, a postcard of Peter and Brian, and a postcard featuring Meg. This edition also comes with 3 storyboard cards, one from each of the 3 previously released volumes ("If I'm Dyin' I'm Lyin'" from Volume 1; "Lethal Weapons" from Volume 2, and "North by North Quahog" from Volume 3).

The edition also contains the uncernsored tracks to five of the episodes, though there isn't really much difference in adding those tracks in my opinion. Was a little surprised to hear the F-word a couple of times, but that was all.

The episodes contained on this volume are...

Disc 1:

PTV: Television has been heavily censored by the FCC, Peter takes action by performing his own "as nature intended" channel. This leads the FCC to take more drastic action censoring the people of Quahog themselves.

Brian Goes Back to College: After being snubbed by the staff of The New Yorker for not graduating, Brian returns to college to get his degree. All the while, Peter, Joe, Cleveland, and Quagmire, form the "new" A-Team.

The Courtship of Stewie's Father: Chris breaks one of old man Herbert's windows and must do chores in order to pay back his debt. Stewie and Peter start hanging out with each other doing their most favorite activity, tormenting Lois.

REVIEW: Family Guy is one of the best shows on television. I am a huge fan and am so glad to see how far it has come. I smile every Sunday night because I know Family Guy will be on. I remember when it was cancelled, I remember doing online petitions, I remember sending emails, and I remember sending letters. Yes, Family Guy was that important to me. It was that rare breed of comedy that worked, that was hilarious, it was intelligent, and completely crude. The pop references are absolutely hilarious, and I'm sure everyone loves it when they get a pop reference and their friends don't. So if nothing else, Family Guy makes you feel smart.

This 3 disc set is the second half of season 4 and is labeled as volume 4. In this set we truly have some of the funniest episodes to come from the series. "Brian Goes Back To College" is one the best episodes on this set and has some of the series' most quotable lines. Stewie and Brian make a large presence in these episodes and the writing is incredibly sharp. We have an amazing musical number where Peter and the New England Patriots perform "Shipoopi" from The Music Man. It truly is pure genius comedy. Fans of the show will snap this one up in no time and will get the most out of the episodes with constant references to the past seasons. Another bonus of this DVD is that there are so many restored scenes that are put back into the episodes that were originally cut due to time constraints.

VIDEO: The difference between before the show got cancelled and after it came back on air is quite notable. The crew utilizes CGI in a few episodes and the image and animation gets better with every episode. The transfer is in 1.33:1 fullscreen and is absolutely as good as it gets when it comes to animation.
