Season 7 is the most inconsistent of them all so far, in as far as its mixture of deliberately provocative content (like rape and murder jokes, for example) and attempts at incisive political commentary not meshing particularly well, resulting in whiplash-speed shifts in tone that can be disorienting. The writing is often rather lazy and repetitive, setting up long jokes that don’t really pan out. Nevertheless, it’s “Family Guy”: If you’re watching Season 7, it’s because you know what to expect, and even though it’s a weaker season it’s still “Family Guy” so it has its laugh-out-loud hilarious moments peppered throughout.
Rating: ★★★ (out of 5)
