      This marks the second time a full season of the show has been released in one set (volume 12 had the full season 11 on it). In prior years Fox, in its infinite wisdom, would release sets that had half of one season and half of another on it. It has really been a minor point because in terms of following the show, it is not like it ever has season long story arcs that need to be followed. You just have to have seen a prior episode to get a reference if they call back to something. But for those of us who do get the DVDs it has often meant paying the same price for a set with a partial season on it. So it is nice that they have come around to doing what they should have in the first place. It also makes for a pretty funny joke this season in one of the episodes. As far as the show itself goes, it is pretty standard with what it has been doing the past few years. It can get repetitive with some of the gags (they do like vomit), but I do think they are still entertaining on a consistent enough basis to keep fans of the show entertained. This season has the controversial story line in the middle involving Brian (chances are everyone knows what it is and the cover of the DVD set basically gives it away) that definitely shook the show (and the fans) up. It also sees the return of Cleveland after the Cleveland Show's cancellation. Like the show always has, it makes fun of pretty much any topic, and because the DVD is uncensored it replaces some of the tamer jokes from the broadcast version with harder edged versions. It is also worth noting that nothing gets bleeped out on the DVDs, so expect all the swearing to be in every episode. For those who get the DVD set, as far as extras go, there are deleted scenes from every episode, a couple episodes showing the full animatics with the dialogue, and a short feature on the Brian storyline with show runners and Seth Green talking about the fan reaction. Pretty standard for what has been included before.

      Season 12? Volume 13?

      Just a quick review for everyone questioning the titling of this release. I, too, was dismayed to see that Fox was now releasing "Seasons" on DVD instead of "Volumes." I tried to acquire this particular release from Best Buy (as a Christmas present from my family), because it was the only retailer that listed it as "Volume 13;" all the other retailers I could find listed it as "Season 12." Unfortunately, after receiving the item I found that it came boxed as "Season 12." Opening the case, however, I found the DVDs within to be labeled "Volume 13." The ISO (electronic) labels on the discs also indicate "Volume 13." So it appears some flunky at Fox mis-titled the release box art. See the attached picture. I hope this helps other Family Guy fans!

      My only real complaint is how the "death of Brian" (the family dog) is handled. it doesn't seem that anyone in the family is reall6y that devastated from it, outside of Stewie. This was really a good way to add a bit of drama to an overly silly show. However, the family just moves on quickly from the event and even Stewie does eventually. Other than that, this season of Family Guy is fresh and funny. While some of the jokes fall flat, more of them are on the mark and witty, as long as one keeps in mind that it is only a cartoon show and should be viewed as such.

      Apparently Fox was looking for a ratings boost by announcing a main character was going to die. once it was brian, the internet went beyond nuts and tons of petitions were sent into Fox demanding he be brought back. That was the plan all along. the stunt worked, ratings went up and Brian came back. thats about the only good thing about this season. the show is just not as funny as it used to be and its getting way to offensive and is making fun of it self way to much. earlier seasons were better.

      Expect the same fun & hilarity from past Family Guy seasons. However, this season shakes things up a bit with the unexpected death of one of it's main characters Brian the Dog. He gets replaced by another talking dog named Vinny. You will either love or hate this new character but this is not a deal breaker to own the latest season of MacFarlane's masterpiece.

They will never give up and they will never surrender. They brought us laughter and joy. Stewie and Brian best friends forever. This season will bring a whole new change to the family. Watch and see a whole for family guy as you never seen before.

      Who doesn't love Family Guy, the writers don't hold back, always delivering side splitting humor! I have to say my collection is a little confused by the season vs volume inconsistencies of this particular franchise. When I went to purchase this season in Best Buy the very helpful salesperson did his darndest to uncover that Volume 13 was in fact Season 12

      The amount of episodes each season seems to be getting less and less, but it's still a good show. As for the product, the discs were in pristine condition. Got it on sale super cheap. Good deal. Only negative thing is (for collectors), the box says Season 12 but the last season was labeled Volume 12. So continuity on your dvd rack ends with this one.
