The second series of Seth MacFarlane’s animated sitcom Family Guy continues with its own brand of acerbic pop-culture satire mixed with gleefully tasteless comedy,
Even though the chaotic Griffin household bears more than a passing resemblance to The Simpsons, and their neighbours are uncannily like those from King of the Hill, the show’s combination of extended flashbacks, surreal fantasy sequences and delightful non sequiturs (“Math, my dear boy, is nothing more than the lesbian sister of biology”) refreshes the familiar formula,
And any show that features Adam “Batman” West guest starring as the demented Mayor of Quahog must score points for bizarre originality,

Highlights of the 15 episodes here include Peter discovering his feminine side (“I Am Peter, Here Me Roar”), Stewie and Brian on an eventful road trip (“Road to Rhode Island”), Peter annexing his neighbour’s pool and inviting the world’s dictators round for a barbeque (“E Peterbus Unum”) and, as a bonus episode, the irreverent “When You Wish Upon a Weinstein”, which was deemed “too offensive for TV”,
It may be lowbrow scatological farce, but unlike its big-screen live-action cousins (think Farrelly Brothers), Family Guy is always warm-hearted and never vicious,

On the DVD : Family Guy, Series 2 is spread across two discs that boast Dolby 5,
1 sound but standard 4 : 3 picture,
There’s no “Play All” facility (something else this release has in common with The Simpsons on DVD) and there are no extras other than the “bonus” episode,
