Family Guy (Season 12) (2013)

A bit on the underwhelming side, this twelfth season of Seth MacFarlane’s rough-edged sitcom seems to have lost some of its bite in this season, and although that’s usually a welcome respite from the show’s never-ending insults-masquerading-as-humor vibe, this time around it’s all a bit flat. The writing is pretty tame, not simply in terms of the sort of deliberately shocking comedy the show revels in, but also in terms of the jokes themselves, which are dispassionately written and performed by the voice cast, resulting in one of the most muted, least interesting seasons of the long-running show.

Rating: ★★ (out of 5)
