A few months back when I reviewed this title for Ron's Reviews, I had sampled just three of the 28 episodes that comprised this Season ONE and TWO DVD collection. Over the past week, I have spent every evening watching at least one or two episodes per night and having the absolute time of my life in the process. I can't believe Fox canceled what I believe to be the most innovative and outrageously funny animated comedy ever brought to television. I think the main reason I love this show so much is because it seems to be written by people who have grown up during the same era I have. The show constantly cuts itself off from the main story line as it interjects some sort of whacky side-line incident that relates to a television show, movie, or long-forgotten commercial. The show is chock-full of movie and TV commercial references that are so well parodied that you can't help but bust out laughing. Family Guy also pushes the envelope as far as it can. Though I can certainly understand why parents might not want their children to watch this show, it makes perfect entertainment for us older kids. My favorite moments from the first boxed set? The WILLY WONKA parody was priceless! The Griffins on Reality TV was expertly captured. Most of all, I give tribute to every cutaway that expertly parodied some sort of childhood memory I had forgotten about over the years. I am a huge fan of THE SIMPSONS and I have recently been introduced to FUTURAMA -- but by a long shot, THE FAMILY GUY is the most cleverly written and produced animated series that I have ever seen. Unfortunately, the program ended up being a perfect example of how a five-star show could be so badly time slotted by a network to the point where it got canceled by its own mishandling. You guys know that when I like something, I talk highly about it. When I don't like something, I don't hesitate to trash it on this forum. May I take this opportunity to turn a few more of you on to THE FAMILY GUY. It may be the most underrated of all the Fox animated sitcoms, but I promise you that buying this under $40 boxed set may be the most enjoyable purchase you have made in some time. I look forward to discovering the episodes on the upcoming Volume 2/Season 3 boxed set as well as hearing comments from fellow FAMILY GUY fans. Go Stewie!
