The Funniest Animated Fox Show Yet!

"I am a long-time Simpson fan...ever since the Simpsons first came on the scene back in the late 80's I would watch the show every chance I got. But over the years the Simpsons started getting a little stale. And that's when Family Guy came in.Family Guy is, by far, the funniest animated television series since the Simpsons were in their prime. We're weighing in alot of shows here...Ren and Stimpy, Futurama...but there's something about Family Guy that just warrants gut-busting laughs. Maybe it's Quagmire's ridiculous attempts at picking up women, Peter's wealth of ignorance, little Stewie's attempts at world domination, or just the random silliness thrown in to all of the episodes, such as appearences by the Kool Aid man, the 'Two Scoops' sun from the old Raisin Bran commercials, references to the old Incredible Hulk television series...and alot more.Family Guy is definitely not for the kids...all of the situations are adult and sometimes are borderline risque (which got the series cancelled, unfortunately). The network censors and committees have no idea what they've done...they threw away a gold mine.While it could never truly replace the Simpsons, Family Guy was well on its way to becoming the new dominant animated series on Fox. The Simpsons have been stale the last few years...Family Guy breathed new life into prime time animation that you just don't see anymore. It's too bad, really. In any case, don't pass up the opportunity to own every episode on DVD!! Fans will love to have all episodes on dvd, I know i'm looking forward to it. And even if you've never seen it, then take my advice: Pick it up anyway! You will not regret it! The extra features are a little bare bones, but it doesn't matter. The show has enough laughs to keep you coming back...even watching the same episode twice won't lessen the amount of laughs you get from it. Definitely a great idea to put this classic but short lived series on DVD!"
TV before reality shows

"I really wish I could boycott this DVD so that FOX wouldn't get a dime for selling it. After all they don't deserve it. They take great shows like the Family Guy and trash them, then give us who wants to marry a rich guy sing on TV eat bugs on an island reality shows. Family Guy is they way TV should be, risky, intelligent, creative, funny, and entertaining.Sadly I can't boycott this DVD because the Family Guy is one of the funniest shows on television. I mean no longer on Television, thank you Rupert "a-hole" Murdock.You must buy this DVD. P.S. If your one of those people who prefer brain dead reality shows to actual entertainment, do us all a favor and throw the TV out your trailer window, run down to the local clinic and get yourself sterilized so that your inferior genes can be wiped from the face of the earth and the rest of us non-knuckle dragging homosapians can go on living productive lives enjoying more intelligent forms of entertainment"
One of the Funniest Animated Shows Ever Made.

"Although I don't think the show was better than the older episodes of the Simpsons, I do think that during the time it was on the air it was better than the Simpsons. The show is really fond to pop-culture junkies or just people in need of a good laugh. Unfortunatly, FOX cancelled it and it's not coming back. To all of you angry fans that hate FOX for cancelling it, don't. It wasn't FOX's fault. The show stopped because the cast and crew split up. Luckily (in my opinion) South Park has been getting funnier. But still I'm thankful that the FOX production companies are immortalizing this classic series on DVD. The thing I like most about Family Guy is the range of inteligence that it appeals to. Whether your a know-it-all super genious with high standards or a complete moron the show is sure to please because it's funny on so many levels.For fans of the show this is a must buy. For newbies, find a friend who is a fan of the show. Unless your in the category of the pretensiously snobby, Family Guy is sure to please."
