Recap / Family Guy

Go To

The following is a list of episode titles and summaries for the FOX sitcom, Family Guy, a Denser and Wackier companion to The Simpsons created by Seth MacFarlane. The Griffins are a New England family from Quahog, Rhode Island: bumbling, politically incorrect, pop culture-obsessed patriarch Peter Griffin; mostly sane former party girl, wife, and mother, Lois (formerly Lois Pewterschmidt, a member of one of Rhode Island's wealthiest families); slow-witted son Chris, social outcast and family punching bag, Meg; diabolical, Ambiguously Gay, inexplicably British note  baby son Stewie; and martini-slurping, Soapbox Sadie family dog, Brian.

Starting from Season 14, each season has exactly 20 episodes.
