Family Guy (Season 16) (2017)

At this stage of the game, viewers of a “Family Guy” episode typically have a pretty good idea of what they’re getting themselves into, and this season is pretty much on par with what’s come before. The same caustic, go-for-broke and occasionally vicious humor is still there, as are the pop culture references that deliberately distort the narrative flow of the episodes, but what continues to make the show work is the terrific voice work. There are some fun episodes throughout, like season opener “Emmy-Winning Episode,” “The D in Apartment 23,” and “Crimes and Meg’s Demeanor,” and while none of them are likely to become show classics there’s still plenty of light, irreverent fun to be had over these twenty episodes.

Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
