The jokes stretch from here to maternity in the hilariously offensive Family Guy episode you couldn’t see on television! Now legal to own (but just barely), Family Guy: Partial Terms of Endearment is a freakin’ poignant tale of what happens when Lois agrees to become a surrogate mother for an infertile couple against Peter’s wishes. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry… it’s your choice!

Where this DVD becomes worth a look is the bonus features. "Seth & Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show" - the controversial 30 minute special that aired on Fox November 2009. I missed it and had been looking everywhere for it, so it's great they included it in the DVD. You also get a feature length (all 23 minutes!) commentary from Seth, Alex, Danny Smith, and Joseph Lee, and a very entertaining live table reading from the cast.
Fans of the show will enjoy this DVD, but it honestly probably should have all been included on a box set.
As a long-time fan with no interest in the extras, I just ended up renting the DVD, and I'm VERY glad I did. To me, one episode is simply not worth the price they're asking for it, especially now that it is becoming more and more routine for "Family Guy" to release overpriced and/or incomplete DVD sets. But, if you're an avid collector or someone who's really interested in the extras, then why not go ahead and get it?
For the average viewer, though, I think the right thing to do with this particular product is simply to rent it and then, if you still want to own a copy, wait until the price comes down a bit. Sure, you're only saving a few bucks, but it's better in your pockets than theirs, right?
The plot centers around an old college friend of Lois' who wants to have a baby. She and her husband have tried time and again to have one, and just haven't been successful. So they ask if Lois would be willing to act as a surrogate. She agrees and then they die. Lois debates whether or not to have an abortion and hilarity ensues!
Now this isn't the best or funniest "Family Guy" episode ever made, but it is a very good episode, and one that I feel should have probably aired with a disclaimer in front. There's not really much here that's terribly offensive, but there's a lot that's very funny (especially Peter's belief that Lois' friend wants a threesome with him and Lois).
I understand why people have a problem with there being only one episode on this disc, but that episode does have commentary. Plus you get many extras, including some downloadable songs, an animatic (should you care about such things), and "Family Guy Presents: Seth and Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show". While it would've been nice to see a couple other episodes thrown onto here, I don't feel ripped-off or cheated by what I got.
Bottom line: if you like the show, you'll like this DVD.

The show itself is very funny. The problem is that it is extremely overpriced for SINGLE episode. When I bought it I had the impression that is was similar to the star wars... Read morePublished 9 months ago by Not-A-Prepper

This is a great episode but I don't see what the big deal is. It's pretty tame as far as Family Guy goes. And remember it's only one episode, about 22minutes long that's it.Published 11 months ago by Richard Mitchell
