Unfortunately I am here to warn you that MacFarlane gleefully crosses the line of good taste and revels in the awkward situations that may result in even loyal fans changing the channel.

Audience Reviews for Family Guy: Season 5

  • Sep 06, 2020
    I really like this idea to be suprised
  • Apr 16, 2019
    super funny, had some episodes 9,99/10- Anton R. Skovborg
  • Jan 12, 2019
    For me, this might actually be the best Family Guy season. I don't know, the humour just stands out to me as the most frickin' hilarious and the voice acting great as always. Maybe it's because this season averts Status Quo is God for once. Yeah, it turns out they were postponing the inevitable but still, the relationship with Brian and Jillian earns points for surviving this whole season. This season is good and it would only be 1 and a half more seasons before the show's downfall.

    Best season of Family Guy ever
  • Dec 29, 2015
    This show is amazing!!!!!!!!
  • Jul 15, 2015
    The fifth season of Family Guy was, for me, where the show begins to cross the line a little bit with the jokes. The laughs in this season are fewer and the show is easier to skip over completely due to lack of ideas from the writing team. Using the same hand-drawn animation techniques employed in the first four seasons, this season isn't much different than the previous ones. If there had been one ideal time to end the show completely, it would've probably been during this season.
  • Feb 15, 2015
    Family Guy still keeps it's funny humor.
  • Mar 02, 2014
    The downward spiral continues.
  • Jan 30, 2014
    Very funny, best one of the cartoon shows in my opinion!
  • Jan 05, 2014
    Yikes, what happened here? One minute, everyone is rejoicing that Family Guy is back on the air and still relevant, the next it becomes a completely different show.
