The Fox broadcast (8 Nov 2009) has a few things that were not included on the DVD release (the Partial Terms of Endearment disc), because it was shown with limited/sponsored commercials. Before each commercial break, Stewie appears to comment on the last few jokes, and then segue into talking about the movie a trailer was about to be shown for (first Sherlock Holmes, then Ninja Assassin). During this, the laugh track was still used, and overlapped somewhat with the very start and end of the trailers. There is a gap in the credits overlay at the end of the DVD; when broadcast, there was text there saying "sponsored by/SHERLOCK HOLMES and NINJA ASSASSIN". The DVD just has unobscured video of Seth and Alex. See more »
I'm a huge fan of Family Guy, and I enjoy the edgy humor and parodies. It doesn't feel so funny when a live action program tries to do the same thing. Chuckling about the Holocaust and imitating how deaf people sound when they talk isn't funny and kinda makes my skin crawl. Amazingly unfunny for someone as funny as Seth McFarlane. It's like he was trying to rack up as many insulted groups as he could in 30 minutes. What was he thinking when he put together this show? If his point was to make it a 30 minute uncomfortable Family Guy style skit, he pulled it off. Another feather in the cap of Fox, was the network so desperate for a program in this time slot that it needed to put this slapped together train wreck on air?
