Returning after a years-long hiatus following its cancellation after Season 3, Seth MacFarlane’s no-holds-barred sitcom is a bit of a shadow of its former self here. Mind you, it’s still often hilarious but has become more hit-or-miss, with several extended segments where the fact that there’s a reference (usually to an 80s pop culture item) is the joke itself. Nevertheless, the moments that work are absolutely great, which makes it worth sitting through the jokes that don’t work.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
