Family Guy

Okay… So the UK does something very weird with the numbering on Family Guy due to some odd labelling of half seasons early on in the run… The issue seems to stem from the DVD/Blu-ray releases from Season 4. It looks like Season 4 (which was 30 episodes) was split into two seasons in the UK, as 4 and 5.

ITV2, who now premiere the new episodes in the UK, use the same numbering system as the USA, which is all good.

However, FOX UK, who have the second run rights, use the UK DVD/Blu-ray numbering system, which is out of sync by one season… So “Season 18” on FOX UK is actually “Season 17” everywhere else… Yes, it’s stupid and confusing, but we’re stuck with it!
