A bit disappointing, this twelfth season of Seth MacFarlane’s rough-edged sitcom seems to have lost some of its bite in this season. 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. Everything is a bit muted, but even a lesser season of the show is still pretty darn fun.
Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
