I like Family guy, and I own the DVDs of all the previous episodes. I read the reviews on this Season 8, but I chose to buy the DVDs & see it myself. I agree with many reviewers that this is probably the worse of all previous seasons ! I rarely laughed while I was watching the episodes. Many themes were repeated, and this season has lots of vulgar words compared to the previous seasons. Few episodes are interesting, but still not to the level that make you laugh as the previous seasons. Are Seth McFarlane and the crew running out of ideas ? Could it be the end of the show ? If next season is going to be like this one, I really hope that they end the show, at least we would remember the previous good seasons.
