Illustration for article titled The Family Guy Abortion Episode: Coming To A DVD Near You

During a Family Guy cast panel at Comic Con today, Seth MacFarlane claimed that an abortion episode, deemed "too edgy" for television by Fox, would be included on the next set of Family Guy DVDs.


Surely the episode will fit right into the other hilarious takes on women that Family Guy is so fond of, like, say, rape jokes, or shooting prostitutes as a form of "community service," or punching them in the face as they cry, "I don't understand! What did I do wrong?" You know, really hilarious stuff.

We can also look forward to this gem, a Meg-Goes-To-Prison plot line, as described by the LATimes: "In their introductions, a few plotlines were announced for the coming season. Brian, driving while drunk, hits a(nother) dog. Peter has an affair with a cardboard cutout of Kathy Ireland. Meg goes to prison and comes back a bit tougher. The crew's dark humor on display, Borstein belts out, 'A little bit raped?' Kunis counters by saying it's OK because 'she liked it.'" Prison rape jokes! The stuff Emmy Nominated comedies are made of, right folks?

I have to say I like Family Guy. Are certain things about it offensive? Yes. But honestly the things that are offensive about Fam. Guy are offensive about South Park and even The Simpsons. Which I only mention because people are always comparing Fam Guy unfavorable to the other two.

First of all I LOVE Lois' character who is smart and funny without being dumb or crazy. Second I really appreciate Fam Guys politics, they consistently ridicule the right wing and sorry, this is just me, but I think all their religion jokes are hysterical. They also never shy away from acknowledging the truth about racism in our society. DId anyone see the episode where they go back to nazi germany and the Nazi's are wearing McCain/Palin pins? Priceless

I've heard that people think it was funnier before it was canceled the first time but I'm perplexed. Some of their most genius episodes came later. Griffin Family History, the Star Wars episode.

also its sort of a stoner show. that could be part of it.
