One of the most disappointing things about 20th Century Fox’s decision to only send the final disc to reviewers for select series is that I didn’t get the entire fifth volume of “The Family Guy.” In short, I love this show, especially how it pushes the envelope, not just with conservative values but also with liberal political correctness.
As best as I can tell from the scattered special features on the final disc in “Family Guy: Volume 5,” the Griffin traditions of not being afraid to offend are held true. Touching on such topics as doctor molestation and prostate cancer, “Family Guy” still seems to have it. And the geek in me also appreciates the pop culture references that go beyond “Star Wars” to more obscure films like “Time Bandits.”
If only I could have seen all the episodes and not just the animatics of three of them, as presented in the special features.
Other special features on this volume include deleted scenes, a promo about the Family Guy line of toys and detailed instructions on how to draw Peter.
