Somehow, it still works.

Apr 6, 2018 | Rating: 4.8/5 | Full Review…

The effective cutaways don't make up for the lackluster main plot, which is so formulaic it distracts from the rest of the show's ample distraction.

Audience Reviews for Family Guy: Season 12

  • Aug 04, 2017
    This season was GARBAGE. I repeat, GARBAGE. Steve Callaghan should've been fired for his terrible work on this season, less we not forget he wrote Fresh Heir, the worst episode of the show next to Brian and Stewie. And insult to injury, the season CLAIMED to have a character being killed off. Nope, doesn't happen. And they make that character more intolerable thanks to episodes such as Brian's A Bad Father, written by Chris Sheridan who's been on the show since SEASON ONE, and Herpe, the Love Sore, written by Andrew Goldberg, same jerk who wrote The Juice is Loose. I can't believe this is how a show that had 4 wonderful seasons turn bad in just a split second.

    I believe his is the most clever show. They offend everyone in a good way. The humor is very sick, and that's what makes me love this series. I have seen all the seasons of this show (that is on Netflix) at least 30 times, And I'm not even exaggerating. Keep up the good work Seth.

    Season 12 is where the show really took a turn for the worse. Almost all of the humor had devolved into shock value and unnecessarily graphic violence. The personalities of the different characters (specifically Brian, Joe, and Bonnie) became oddly dark and depressing. Season 12 and 13 are both guilty of all these things and many episodes from each season are painfully awkward to watch with friends/family due to the overall cringe-worthy nature of those two said seasons. This is coming from a Family Guy fanatic, so it says something. There are still some memorable and funny moments and a few good episodes in season 12 and 13, but overall they are the black sheep of the series.

    Probably Family Guy's grossest, strangest, and most disturbing content yet, but some of the morbid humor managed to make me laugh. It always had time for the saddest moment of the series in which Brian had seemingly died.

    With tired plots and characters that are now phoned-in and unfunny all while being too annoyingly self-referential, Family Guy has essentially become a parody of what it used to be, and not even a funny parody.

    El humor baja increíblemente hasta llegar a niveles mezquinos y con material que intenta impresionar al público que solo llegan a ser patéticos y absurdos en varios capítulos.

    I have no clue why i kept watching but the life of Brian episode is so forced so stupid it makes me think if any sensible people are working on this show

    Season 12 of Fox's Family Guy continues to see the show return back to form with the gags that shock, the humor that pushes the boundaries, but then also successfully does what MacFarlane attempted to do a couple season back by giving some serious plots as well. The return of Cleveland to Quahog is one of the greatest parts of the season.

    They think Judaism & Christianity are "western". That's besides "western civilization" not existing in the first place. What's funny is the death of this terrible show. Borstein & Seth have become desperate & arrogant.
