Family Guy (Season 4) (2005)

Returning after a years-long hiatus following its initial cancellation at the end of the third season, Seth MacFarlane’s no-holds-barred sitcom is a bit of a shadow of its former self in this season. Mind you, it’s still often hilarious but this time it’s more hit-or-miss, with several extended segments where the fact that there’s a reference (usually to an 1980s pop culture item) is the punchline itself. Nevertheless, the moments that work are absolutely great, which makes it worth sitting through the jokes that don’t work.

Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
