Guide Review - "Family Guy - Volume Two" DVD Review
I enjoyed watching the "Family Guy – Volume Two" DVD set, but I understand why this animated TV show is not to everyone's taste. The humor in the show and its overall sensibilities might be off-putting if not flat-out offensive to some. But I can also see why it has its fans. The humor is sharp, intellectual, and unafraid of skewering both pop and high culture. The overall entertainment quality of the show is a little uneven, but when everything works right, the "Family Guy" is fast, smart, and side-splittingly funny. The DVDs include the never-before-seen episode "When You Wish Upon A Weinstein" along with commentary on selected episodes.
