These five episodes are hand-picked favorites by none other than creator Seth MacFarlane. They are:
When You Wish Upon a Weinstein: Peter wishes upon a star for a Jew for better account protection and later becomes convinced that Chris will become better at school by becoming a Jew himself. Not one of the greatest, but still pretty funny. And it's easy to see why this episode was banned from airwaves. 7/10
Road to Rhode Island: A classic. Plain and simple. In order to forget his abandonment from his mother, Brian tries to bring Stewie home after Stewie's trip to see Lois's parents' property. Unfortunately, Brian and Stewie end up losing their plane tickets and goes on a journey back to Rhode Island on foot. A blend of heart and humor from beginning to end. Even the cut Osama Bin Laden scene was a hoot. 9/10
To Love and Die in Dixie: One of my all-time favorites! The Griffins are sent to the deep south after the criminal Chris placed the finger on for a grocery robbery escaped from jail. Rippingly hilarious! 10/10
I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar: Probably one of the edgiest, yet funniest episodes ever written! Peter is sent to women's retreat to find his "feminine" side after being sued by a local employee for sexual harassment. 8/10
Lethal Weapons: The highlight of this DVD! Lois joins Bonnie for Tae-Jitsu classes and everybody follows her example. The family brawl towards the end of the episode is just plain hysterical.Read more ›
The restored "Road To Rhode Island" doesn't really make it worth it. It's just the one deleted segment, and it really isn't funny. I notice the first review says "true fans have to have this scene," frankly, I think that's ridiculous and pedantic. If by "true" fans, you mean insanely obsessed, then I guess you'd be correct. It's not really offensive, but it doesn't add anything to the episode (which is a good one).
Now, it sounds like my review is completely negative. Why is this worth it?
Well, let me be honest. I love the commentaries on Futurama. I think they're among the best commentaries I've ever heard, and they just add to the rewatch value of the episodes. But a lot of Family Guy commentaries have been... just... blah. Maybe it's because they choose mediocre episodes to do commentaries on "Ready, Willing, and Disabled," "Death Lives," "Holy Crap," etc. But the commentaries on here really make this DVD worth it, I think. The commentary for "Rhode To Road Island" - I like it, it's great, it's hilarious, you should hear it. It's already one of my favorite episodes, this just made it better. The "To Love and Die In Dixie" commentary was okay, nothing special. But two episodes I'd always wished they had done commentaries on but didn't - "I Am Peter, Hear Me Roar" and "Lethal Weapons" - they finally did here! Excellent!Read more ›
Family Guy is probably the funniest cartoon on TV right now, and one of the most over the top and original shows ever created. This DVD contains five episodes handpicked by the creator as the best the series has to offer. Of course, alot of fans will all disagree on certain choices, but I think the 5 included here are all top quality.
The episodes contain bonous commentary and uncensored scenes that are not included on the other DVDs. A preivew of American Dad (a new show by the same creators) is also included. The episodes on this video are as follows:
Road to Rhode Island- A classic Brian and Stewie episode. Probably the most popular in the series.
When You Wish Upon a Weinstein- The popular banned episode. Peter hires a Jewish accountant because he believe Jews are good with money. Filled with lovely offensive humor that made the network too edgy to air it.
To Love and Die in Dixie- Another great episode, this time featuring the Family Guy crew living in the deep South. Plenty of redneck and confederacy jokes. Very funny.
I Am Peter Hear Me Roar- This episode rips on feminism. Peter gets in touch with his inner self and begins to think he is a woman.
Lethal Weapons- Not my favorite episode of all time, but excellent none-the-less.Read more ›

While I am not a huge fan of this show, I do like some of the episodes. It demonstrates (despite what some people think) how cartoons don't just talk down to a juvenile audience,... Read morePublished 15 months ago by Baruch Weiss
