Product Description

Family Guy ~ Partial Terms Of Endearment


Produced but not yet broadcast (don't hold your breath), this Family Guy episode is all "A" story--as in abortion. Lois (Alex Borstein giving one of her best performances) agrees to become a surrogate mother, but when the prospective parents die in a car accident (laughing yet?), she must decide whether or not to keep the baby. Both sides of the abortion question are articulated, but if you are pro-laugh, the real debate is whether this episode is funny. Not so much, really, although some of the random gags provide some welcome diversion from the hot-button topic. The audio commentary featuring Seth MacFarlane, Borstein, director Joseph Lee, and writer Danny Smith provides little insight into the episode's creation. Adhering to the comedy rule of three, the episode can be viewed in two other versions included as bonus features. One is an animatic that does feature some alternate jokes, and the other is a live table read that is enhanced by the audience's "oh no they didn't" reaction to some of the edgier gags ("It's not as bad as you think," MacFarlane assures them at the outset). This disc also includes the 2009 keep-MacFarlane-happy prime-time special, "Family Guy Presents: Seth and Alex's Almost Live Comedy Show," during which Marlee Matlin interrupts Borstein's impression of her singing Lady Gaga's "Poker Face." While Partial Terms is not one of Family Guy's shining half-hours, this DVD at least offers fans the right to choose… whether or not to watch. --Donald Liebenson

3.0 out of 5 stars Only one episode; buyer beware Oct. 1 2010
By dub
This is the 'too controversial for Fox' episode: Lois agrees to be a surrogate mother, then the pregnancy takes a U-turn.
Thoughtful, but anyone sitting on the fence about this issue would not be watching Family Guy!
Despite some DVD extras, this is too expensive as a stand-alone, and hopefully would be included in the next season collection. However, there's a brief scene with Brian and Quagmire that's worth your 22 minutes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only one show on the disc Oct. 2 2010
I found it very strange that they would only release only one episode and put it on its own disc. They claimed it was banded from TV but I would have to say that I didn't find it any of it different than any other episode; I don't know why they did that. It was fun to watch but its like, $10 to watch just one episode. I don't know why they just don't put it on the season disc. I hope that is not the wave of the future for them. Knowing what I know now, that it is only one ' hour show, I wouldn't have bought the disc.

It's like any Family Guy episode but they touch on a controversial topic.
Not really worth the splurge unless you feel it's a must see.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying if you love Family Guy Jan. 25 2011
I can see why this episode wasn't shown on TV. We really enjoyed it, and it pushed the boundaries like usual. Laughed our @sses off! I'm glad to have it in our collection
