Critic Reviews for Family Guy Season 10

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

The new season of Family Guy isn't very good. It's a terrible, defeated, hollow and cynical thing -- a rock bottom that it has been plummeting towards for years.

Mar 20, 2019 | Full Review…

I would have less of a problem with the typically shallow excuse for a plot if there was more funny material.

Nov 26, 2013 | Rating: C | Full Review…

Volume Ten of "Family Guy" manages to put the quirky characters from Quahog, Rhode Island into new situations, though with some familiar stand-bys.

Aug 10, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

While it was lacking in LOL moments, this week's Family Guy made up for it with a genuine message.

Apr 9, 2018 | Rating: 4.3/5 | Full Review…

If Family Guy isn't going to make sense, it could at least be funny, and it was neither.

Nov 27, 2013 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

Sometimes there is much to forgive in Family Guy to get to the pure gold.

Audience Reviews for Family Guy: Season 10

  • Sep 06, 2020
    Im so impressed with this season of this
  • Jan 12, 2019
    NOTE: I do not feel the need to watch the seasons 7-9 for the sake of reviewing them since, as a comedy show with negative continuity, I have nothing to lose from skipping a few seasons except a few references to past controversies and the Griffin family's misadventures. The tenth season of Family Guy has a few good episodes (mostly limited to the ones where Brian and Stewie are the main focus), the animation is much better (Back to the Pilot uses ye olde and modern animation styles quite impressively), the voice acting can be quite well-done when it wants to be and there are a couple of thrilling action sequences but that doesn't excuse this season for the individual sins most of the episodes have. Hypocrisy with regards to domestic violence (it doesn't help that this is the last we see of Brenda and that the domestic violence is still depicted in a humorous light in later episodes), an appalling "Brian & Stewie" subplot in which you are allowed to cringe at the line "there's a special place in hell for people like you" when you understand the context, a terrible autism joke that only crosses the line once with a plot that will offend anyone who's studied politics (*ahem* not me) and, worst of all, a played painfully straight example of Status Quo is God for a crossover event that wasn't really except at the end of the American Dad episode that involves the same hurricane. Other bad episodes are just flat out forgettable. I can't say this is the worst season of Family Guy but yeah, it's not good.

    Worst season of Family Guy
  • Dec 29, 2015
    This show is amazing!!!!!!!!
  • Sep 15, 2015
    A mostly forgettable season except for "Viewer Mail #2"
  • Jun 22, 2014
    Aside from Back to the Pilot probably being one of the best episodes out there this one you start to see a huge drop in quality
  • Jan 30, 2014
    Very funny, best one of the cartoon shows in my opinion!
  • Jan 29, 2014
    I think it's clear that by the tenth season, Family Guy has turned into a more terrible version of the post-golden era Simpsons, because the first two episodes involve Peter being a jerk to his friends after winning the lottery (twice), and the family end up falling apart after Meg's unnecessary outburst while Brian ends up going on drugs which involve his ear cut off (respectively). The next two episodes certainly don't help, with Brenda (who was thought to be a one-time character with Quagmire's failed joke) getting a main episode where Quagmire tries to choke himself while watching porn, and the fourth honestly missing the mark despite a few good jokes (again, respectively). While there are some good episodes of Family Guy in this season, especially 'Back to the Pilot', 'Amish Guy', 'The Blind Side' and 'Killer Queen', season 10 was mostly miss, with the third episode - an episode focusing on Quagmire's sister trying to break up with her abusive boyfriend being almost bereft of any sort of laughter - cementing the mentioned claim.

    It's still showing signs of the show running out of ideas but Season 10 still has plenty of decent laughs and moments. The best episode being "Back to the Pilot" which i thought was really good seeing current Brian and Stewie encounter old Family Guy animation.
  • Jan 05, 2014
    It's now back to the basics with needlessly uncomfortable episodes with only one or two memorable ones.
