Seth MacFarlane’s mostly hilarious, occasionally groan-inducing sitcom continues along in this fifth season, just as solid as the previous season but a far cry from its brilliant original three-season run. It’s more smug and repetitive here, and like the previous season it’s often too enamored with its own cleverness, but there are enough hilarious moments to make it worth watching. Alex Borstein’s Lois continues to be the show’s secret weapon.
Rating: ★★★★ (out of 5)
