In this exclusive 88 minute DVD premiere, featuring brand new, never before seen content, Stewie, the maniacal baby genius, is distracted from his plans for world domination when he sees a man who looks just like him on television. Convinced that this man must be his real father (after all, how could he possibly share genetic material with the dimwitted Peter?), Stewie sets off on a cross-country road trip to find him. But his incredible journey leads him to discoveries far more vile and shocking that anything found in his diaper.
For Family Guy fans, there are no freakin' sweeter words than "Never Before Seen." A triumphant homecoming for the Griffins, Stewie Griffin is not so much a movie as it is a not-yet-aired three-episode story arc enhanced with a home-video-exclusive "red carpet premiere" prologue and an epilogue (capped, of course, with a fart joke). Family Guy's resurrection is a television miracle, and its creators have rewarded the faithful by picking up right where they left off, offending any and all sensibilities (recasting Jesus as comic magician Art Metrano), dissing the celebrity disenfranchised (Ellen Cleghorne references, anyone?), and generally taking potshots at anyone on their enemies list (Stewie breaks the neck of a reporter for Entertainment Weekly, the magazine that once called Family Guy "the Awful Show They Just Keep Putting on the Air"). The Untold Story! is a star vehicle for Family Guy's breakout character, in which the mega maniacal and matricidal infant has a Grinch-like change of heart after a near-death experience (and a disturbing encounter with Steve Allen in Hell) and, more life-altering, discovers a football-pated man who could be his father (the truth is more shocking!). As go the gags, so goes Family Guy, and there are enough good ones here to compensate for the many misfires. The Miller-esque (as in Dennis) penchant for channeling arcane pop culture can grow tiresome. But for those who remember the words to the Who's the Boss theme song, know (or still care) who Steve Bartman is, and are always up for "a sexy party," this will be the greatest story ever untold. --Donald Liebenson

First and foremost, this second installment was not going to be a surprise like the first one was. 'Something 3X Darkside' was based on the exact same map as 'Blue Harvest' Macfarlane and company stuck true to the origional film using their infamous humor and pop culture references. I will say there were some moments that caused me to laugh a lot so that was a plus. Another plus was the new characters introduced to play the rolls of the new Star Wars characters...yes even Meg makes her triumphant return. Still, there are some flaws here. I think that this new installment could have been a little different. An example would be how Peter tells the story, it didn't have to be another blackout. Also, the end of the episode ends up in another battle between Chris and Peter about Robot Chicken which makes no sense what so ever because Seth MacFarlane has plenty of Roles on Robot Chicken so Ihave no idea why he takes shots at it. Most importantly as a Family Guy fan I am not a fan of the fact that Stewie is an ambiguously gay character. If you want to use that comedy in the show its one thing, but don't bring that persona to Darth Vader. This is a movie that is suppose to be dark and it is really hard to lighten up a chapter such as this.
Though all in all I think it was a well done piece of work and I am looking forward to 'Family Guy: We Have A Bad Feeling About This', I sure hope that thre will be a total of six episode, because I think they will rip Episode 1 to know end which will be pee in your pants hillarious!

Some episodes have commentary with Seth McFarlane and various other writers, directors, or actors (Seth himself did the voice of Peter, Brian, Stewie, and Quagmire). The commentary is hilarious, but it's only on a few of the episodes.
No doubt, this is some of the funniest stuff you'll ever see on DVD. If you even remotely like Simpsons, the Critic, or South Park, you should definately pick up this DVD.
I named my cat, "Stewie". If you get as much out of this show as I have, whatever your circumstance is, I empathize with you. Of all the animated shows, this one stands out if only for the live orchestra; the animation is only good enough for the writer to scrape by. That might be to protect the health of the viewer when the story stretches credulity. The characters and setting of this show remind me somehow of, "Golden Girls", and I mean that in the kindest sense; the voice-talent is the best, and they had terrific writing. How can you animate an ad-lib?
I still get excited when I come across an episode I hadn't already seen.
