Tv Season Info

Series 1 introduces the animated antics of the constantly grousing Griffin family, who put some fun in dysfunctional. While dad Peter is a tad dim and lazy, mom Lois is none of the above. Then there are hapless teens Meg and Chris; sassy baby Stewie, who's wise (and a wise guy) beyond his years; and family dog Brian, who might be the smartest of the lot. Series creator Seth MacFarlane voices many of the regular characters.

Nothing warms the heart of a TV critic more than a TV show that bites the hand that feeds it.

Family Guy is very funny; the quirky scenarios can induce giggles or even guffaws in grown-ups.

Family Guy, like South Park, is nasty without being particularly amusing, cynical without being perceptive, and ugly as sin.

Family Guy is occasionally quite funny ---- but only occasionally. And it's often rather crude -- quite often.

Although I'm partial to the human face of live action, I admit animation lends itself particularly well to the free-association comedy of Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane.

"Family Guy" pushes the creative envelope in loopy directions once thought unimaginable.
