Episode 2 in this season is the last one with the Braniff Airlines logo.
This season is also home to the episode, “Make Love, Not Warcraft”, which won the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program in 2007. It’s also home to the two-part episodes “Cartoon Wars Part I” & II, which involved Family Guy trying to air an image of the Muslim prophet Muhammad, and “Go God Go” which involved a future world where there was no religion. The season was listed as one of the 20 Best Seasons of the Last 20 Years by Pajiba.
