Family Guy Now streams Family Guy episodes, and the Family Guy movies that were released. They seem to have all the episodes and both 2 movies, both of which were split up into episodes and aired as part of the 5th and 6th seasons.

There's a few flash ads which really slow things down, they were soundless but they were quite annoying since they had moving animations. Some of the episodes displayed an error message saying something along the lines of "This site not authorized to embed this video", either they're leeching videos off of another site or the video code was messed up. Regardless, most of the videos worked but were hosted on GoFish a mediocre to slow loading video site. The videos load about average, it's not amazingly fast but it's not as horribly slow as Tudou. The loading kept about 10 seconds ahead of the actual playback so fortunately there were no problems in waiting for laggy playback since the video kept loading as it was played - that was quite nice.

There isn't a lot to say about Family Guy Now, it's focused on just Family Guy episodes. If you're a fan of the random comedy of the show - this site is definately for you. But if you're not a fan, then this site doesn't have anything for you. The videos load well enough, and the quality while not amazing is very watchable. The ads can be quite a bit annoying and not all the episodes work, but a good share of them do and that's enough to keep me coming back.

Family Guy Now is one of the best sites to catch up on Family Guy, the fact that they haven't tried to do anything else but stick to Family Guy episodes has allowed them to have a pretty stable and good collection of working videos.
