Family Guy season 12 ReviewBy Sj.Cliff
The wait is finally over when America’s rudest, crudest and most controversial family returned for Family Guy Season 12 on DVD on 4 November 2013 from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment. And this time they’re taking on Britain...
Emmy Award® winning creator Seth MacFarlane finally gives his unique take on the British in ‘Chap of the Manor’, a classic episode set around the premise that Family Guy swaps their American couch for a British sofa, with some bad teeth and mutton chops thrown in for good measure. The alternative Griffins spend their time watching ‘Wheel of Politeness’ on the telly, frequent the local pub, throw around a stream of very British obscenities, and Neville (Peter) finds out that he is related to Queen Elizabeth and wishes to gain a lock of her hair to discover the truth.
Season 12 also features more celebrity voices than ever before, including hilarious turns from Hollywood stars Ryan Reynolds, James Woods, Cate Blanchett and the much-hyped Family Guy debut of Ricky Gervais as Peter’s new dolphin friend in the classic episode ‘Be Careful What You Fish For’.
They join the regular voice talents Alex Borstein (MADtv), Seth Green (Robot Chicken), Mila Kunis (That 70’s Show) and Mike Henry (The Cleveland Show) along with the show’s Emmy Award® winning creator MacFarlane, hotter than ever after the global success of Ted and pulling out all the stops in the biggest and best season yet.
Pushing the boundaries of taste and decency further than ever before, Season 12 sees Quagmire finally moving in for the kill on Meg’s 18th birthday, with Peter trying his hardest to put an end to the relationship, Meg falling for an Amish boy and Stewie getting behind the wheel to take the family car for a spin. In a rare stroke of luck the Griffins win the lottery, but struggle to stay grounded, whilst Brian and Stewie travel back in time to the very first episode of the series.
Family Guy Season 12 is loaded with more content than ever before, including ‘Fishin Around With Ricky Gervais’, ‘Ron Macfarlane Reads Viewer Mail’, episode commentaries and deleted scenes, providing hours of side-splittingly crude entertainment and the perfect stocking filler this Christmas.
