Family Guy season 6 is my least favourite of all the seasons of Family Guy. The show reaches its lowest point to date with this season. The season only has 13 episodes and there are a couple that stand out but that is more because the overall standard of the episodes is not that great compared to the previous seasons of the show.
The first disc has 6 episodes and none of them really stand out. Out of all the Family Guy Seasons this disc contains the worst set of episodes. The best episode is episode 4 Saving Private Brian. In this episode Stewie signs him and Brian up to the army and they are soon shipped to Iraq. Once they are there they try a number of different things in an effort to get discharged and return home.
The second disc has 7 episodes and marks the turnaround of the show which was on a downward spiral with each episode getting graduallyu worse. However there are still a couple of episodes not worth watching.
Episode 7 Chick Cancer has some funny moments but these mostly revolve around the making of Peter's chick flick after he becomes obsessed with them when he is taking to watch one at the cinema by Lois.
Episode 12, Aiport 07 is my favourite episode in the season. In this episode Peter decides to become a red-neck and changes his livestyle. When he drops Quagmire off at the airport he decides to take the fuel from the plane and put it into his pick up in an effort to make it fly. As a result Quagmires plane crashes and Peter, Cleveland and Joe set out to try and get Quagmire his job back.
Episode 13, Bill and Peter's Bogus Journey is quite entertaining. In this episode Peter and Bill Clinton become close friends until Lois sleeps with Bill. Peter says he must have an affair to be able to get over Lois's cheating.
The season comes with a third disc of features containing deleted scenes,a draw peter featurette a Toys Toys Galore featurette and 3 episodes with original commentary (Stewie Loves Lois, Prick Up Your Ears and Chick Cancer).
This is the worst Family Guy season out there and is only worth buying if you are a fan of the show and want a complete set of all the seasons. You can buy this on amazon for £10.28 atm and that is a fair price to pay as your not likely to find it for much cheaper than that.
I thought season five and six of Family Guy had some very random moments and more one-percentors than the other seasons. However, even my least favourite Family Guy seasons are still great because the show never gets tedious or old.
There are only thirteen episodes like season four because it's actually just half of a series, as they started to get released in volumes after season three but charged the same price. The seasons now contain parts of different seasons that are aired on TV and are different to the US releases. You will have to buy Blue Harvest separately as well.
There are no real gems that I've watched multiple times but most of the episodes are funny with quite far fetched plots. For example, "The Former Life of Brian" and "Padre de Familia" are pretty strange episodes but still enjoyable. "Stewie loves Louis" is probably the funniest episode on there where Peter takes Dr. Heartman for sexual harassment after getting a prostate examination which is a hilarious scene and Stewie begins to appreciate Lois more.
Is it worth £17.97? I don't think it is. I would say £9.99 would be a reasonable price for this short and weaker season.
I am a huge Family Guy fan, and loved this series.
The series revolves around the Griffin Family, Peter & Lois and their kids, Meg, Chris and Stewie (a talking baby intent on taking over the world) and their adopted talking dog Brian.
In this series you are finding out more about the characters (Such as Francis Griffin is not Peter's real father) and the jokes and punchlines are even more shocking.
Some of the jokes are a little close to the knuckle and you will either be in stitches or very offended!
Currently £25.99 in HMV although you could probably get it cheaper if you shopped around.
Stewie Loves Lois.

Brilliant DVD for all Family Guy fans!
Family guy has got to be the most hilarious programme i have seen in a long time. How the creator seth macfarlane comes up with the outrageous things that peter griffin, in particular, comes out with i'll never know.
That man is a genius!!
To be on the 8th series now and to still be coming up with new material the way he does is somethig else, he is a god. Didn't even realise until i watched a behind the scenes programme just how many characters he does the voiceover for. Amazing. now i know, i can hear that it is him, but wouldn't have guessed.
I bought my boyfriend the box set 1-7 and we never tire of watching it. I think i've become a bigger fan than him now. Peter's stupid little laugh gets me every time.
Every week my favourite character changes, but always love the love-hate relationship of brian and stewie. Can anyone else in the family tell what stewie is saying? Meg i can relate too on so many levels, but we wont go into too much detail there! My boyfriend often wonders where our hotdogs go too! Oops, too much said already.
Hope there's many more to come, episodes of family guy that is!
Family Guy is one of those grown up cartoons that you either love or hate. Many say that cartoons are for kids, yet this one is rated 15 and still my kids want to watch it. This particular set contains all of series six on three DVD's. It runs for a total of 278 minutes and has 5.1 surround sound.
There are 13 episodes to enjoy, following the antics of the Griffin family. The main two characters I would say are Peter, the dad and Stewie the baby with the funny shape head. In this episode you can experience Lois (wife) heading to bed with Bill Clinton, which is absolutely hilarious. Stewie also had me rolling around laughing when he meets an old friend (as if babies can do this). Some of the lines and phrases that come out of this babies mouth are nothing less than vulgar, but I guess that is the type of humour that makes this funny.
Be warned, this is not for the easily offended and you really should keep this away from you kids. I know it says '15' but I would say that by the age of 12 (or less) they know all the terms in Family Guy anyway. This is a very clever type of cartoon and highly recommended.
Ah Family Guy, how very politically incorrect you are but how we love you for it!
Family Guy runs up yet another season, this being the sixth and long may it last. Family Guy tells the story of an family living in Quahog who are completley normal except for the alcoholic talking dog, talking baby who dreams of matricide and an evil monkey in the wardrobe...yeah it's a little unusual.
Nevertheless the real question and point of this review is, does Season Six match up to its predecessors.
13 in total, some absolute classics amongst them including 'Stewie Loves Lois' where Stewies hatred for Lois becomes love when she saves his teddy bear Rupert from a dog. We also continue to see Brians less-than-inteligent girlfriend Gillian (Drew Barrymore) and meet a relative of Peters that he didn't know he had.
Sorry but the DVDs as a whole are a copout with only 13 episodes spread over 2 discs with a 3rd being barely filled with deleted scenes and animatics. The extras put on the 3rd disc i'm sure would have fit over the other 2 discs to make a slimmer and better priced release.
The design of the discs and casing is again top notch with the favorite characters being featured throughout the disc frontages however collectors will be frustrated to see the side of the box being totally changed compared to the other 5 seasons, only a small thing but still personally a bit of a bug bare when shown as a complete set.
Value For Money?
At £13.98 i feel this is a little over priced for just 13 episodes but i must say that they are great episodes and so really if you're into Family Guy already, you know you'll end up paying it for another slice of Quahog life.
Another great, if not short, season put lovingly on to 2 discs, with a third being thrown in to inflate the price.
Family Guy - Season 6 is the sixth season of Family Guy, the animated sitcom created by Seth McFarlane. Who would've thought that we would reach six seasons after it was canceled the first time?
During this season the Family Guy staff celebrated their 100th episode, but because of the feature length film and "Blue Harvest", it's hard to tell which is the actual 100th episode produced. At the end of 2007 there was a writer's strike that lasted for months and saw production halt on virtually every scripted show. Because of this a lot of the season six episodes were put on hold, which resulted in Fox airing roughly one new "Family Guy" episode a month until the end of the season. That is why there are only 12 episodes in this season whereas in season five there were 18.
The animation here is very fluid, with very little skips or bad animating. It's like "The Simpsons" but with the "South Park" style of humour. And like Matt and Trey, Seth is not afraid to take pot shots at anyone, regardless of their race, gender or political affiliation.
A lot happens in this season for Quahogs residents, in "Believe It or Not, Joe's Walking on Air" Joe has a leg transplant and finds himself able to walk again, in "Padre de Familia" Peter finds out he is actually an illegal immigrant born in Mexico, in "Back to the Woods" James Woods returns to Quahog to seek revenge on Peter by stealing his identity and his family (Woods shows he can laugh at himself with these great performances) and in "The Former Life of Brian" Brian finds out that he is the illegitimate father of an disobedient kid.
Overall a good quality season with lots of funny moments, touching moments and more of the brilliant same from your favourite "Family Guy" characters, five stars!
