Family Guy (Season 13) (2014)

Although it’s nice that “Family Guy” has, in the last few seasons, dropped its propensity to go for shocks instead of laughs, it’s become a mellow shell of its former self in some ways. The random (and strangely personal) insults lobbed at various celebrities and public figures are gone, but in their stead we’re left with fascimiles of the characters we’ve come to love, and storylines that have gone from goofy to outright silly and, well, kind of stupid. Hopefully the show can re-attain its razor-sharp bite without succumbing to cheap and unfunny insult humor, because as it is, it’s starting to flail a bit.

Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
