Ah! Alanis Mors-I-spell the name! It burns the eyes with the image of the person that hurt the ears with a song that had no irony in it when it was named Ironic, but, for that fact, it is ironic!

I've discovered this show just isn't the same w/o Futurama next to it. It lacks on it's own. It still funny, but not as funny.

Fast Times at Buddy Cianci Jr. High

A strange episode, this one. The episode structure was all over the place, starting out slow then having a really rushed ending. I mean, the family believing Chris to be innocent just because a news report said police SUSPECTED it was his wife? I know the Griffins are idiots who believe almost everything they see on TV, but that just seemed really strange to me...

Humour-wise, it was fine. Nothing TOO hilarious, but plenty of stupid repetitive jokes, which is one of my favourite aspects of the show anyway. It's just plot-wise... I don't know. I think the idea of Chris having a crush on a teacher was great, I just didn't like the direction they took with the episode. Nice B-plot with Brian, though.

Overall, not bad, but still not up to the standards Season 3 created for the show. Still, I'm not going to judge a season just by 2 episodes. Hell, look at South Park. Their seasons are almost always better in the second half.

Peter said, "I don't know."  Then he got slimed.  Then they showed Peter's face with "You Can't Do That on Television" written on it.

How much more obvious does it have to be?

I meant, when I first saw the slime, I THOUGHT, it was from Double Dare.

What part of "I thought", don't you understand?

The part where you're thinking. Nah, I'm just kidding.

I agree with Harry Sach. Family Guy is funny on its on, but not as funny or fun to watch without Futurama next to it, but that could be arrange.[Gives the "hint hint" about the slot after Family Guy]

Peter attempts to set a world record of swallowing the most nickels. However, he becomes blind due to nickel poisoning.

Sounds pretty stupid, but hey, the stupid episodes of Family Guy are always the funniest - and the synopsis of this episode alone made me laugh.

The funniest episode so far, and it finally had Quagmire shown! The acts were very different from each other, but it was still good.

I'd give it a 9/10.

Only a show like family guy can get away with having a chicken fight scene for half an act for no reason and no payoff, Good to see his return, as well the rest of the residents of Spooner street. Also the star wars ending was hilarious and very relevant, what with star wars out this week.

Star Wars parody was cool. Also loved the chicken. Funny as hell the way Peter apologizes,and he goes right back to defending Quagmire like nothing happened. (No one even says anything.)

Was this chicken fight longer than the first? I've timed both, but I can't remember. Let's hope the third (and final? dun dun dun) will fill up the entire episode.  tongue

The second one was over 50 seconds longer than the first.  I actually think the scene ran a bit too long, and I'm a man who likes my taffy drawn out jokes.  Otherwise a pretty funny episode.

I like it when the jokes are drawn out because, the first time you see them especially, you think: "will this ever end?!" and you feel stressed and you can't stop laughing... Another example is the one where Peter falls and hurts his knee in that older one: you know the one I'm talking about...

Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones was shown to go with the release of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. I'm kinda happy, not for no FG, but no Am.D.

Yeah, FOX is trying to play off of this StarWars fever, by showing EpII.

Hopefully this won't become a habit of bumping Family Guy...

I'm, like, the only girl in this thread. Heh, kinda scary.

Er, anyway, Nasty, according to TV Tome...

June 5 (a.k.a., tomorrow): Don't Make Me Over

June 12: The Cleveland-Loretta Quagmire (no info yet)

Hope that helps.

EDIT: Hey, they're talking about the chicken. I laughed histerically at the first chicken fight. This latest one was funnier, if only for the utter randomness. But then again, isn't Family Guy's formula randomness = hilarity?

What's annoying, I'm a big Family Guy fan too, the BBC bought the rights to air "Family Guy" and Seth's other animated comedie "American Dad", however, there has been no sighs of it being aired any time soon over here! Come On BBC! DO SOMETHING... atleast on BBC3, which it is obvious it's gonna be aired there first....

Sometimes, the randomness=hilarity formula doesn't work.

I was looking at this season's episodes.
Stewie B. Goode, Stu & Stewie's Excellent Adventure, and 8 Simple Rules for Buying My Teenage Daughter look like they might be good. SBG sounds like either he goes to a correction place, S&SEA sounds like one of those "Road to Rhode Island" type episodes. 8SRfBMTD sounds like Peter sells Meg to someone, perhaps Quagmire.

As for the cultural references, I think that 8 Simple or some sort of Katey Segal show is something they might do in 8SRfBMTD. Maybe Lois will randomly dress up like some Cate from 8 Simple Rules...or Peg...or as Leela. That would be kinda funny for Lois to dress up as Leela...

I didn't get to see Peter vs Chicken II.

If the UK is anything like Australia, they probably won't air it for quite a while. Over here, shows like to stay about 2 months behind the American schedule (usually 1 year if it's a new show, eg. American Dad) and given that U.S. tv has more pauses between episodes WITHIN the season, it might explain why it's taking so long.

Of course, I know very little about british TV, so it might work differently there...

Pretty good episode this week
A little more random than usual and a few continuity errors (Brian never barks at cleveland). The return of Adam West as the mayor, even if it was only 1 line was good, as was the 80s montage.

Very enjoyable episode.

I loved Brian as a rasist.

Good stuff, keep it coming.

Okay, so I only caught the tail end of this episode (the last act), but I liked what I saw, for the most part. The Griffin family going on SNL was pretty funny (the Jimmy Fallon thing was okay...I didn't totally like the idea of Meg's being "de-flowered", but I think I laughed in spite of myself because...I'm a terrible person), and I liked the bits with Brian as a rascist. Let's see, what else? Oh, yeah, Peter made a comment about Meg being humiliated in front of 1 1/2 times the Mad TV audience, which I liked. And, um...Brian and Stewie's song was just...I've always liked their dynamic, so, needless to say, I found it funny.

So, I give (what I saw of) this episode a B. Pretty funny stuff.

I liked this episode alot, it was very well done. I liked the lady who lit herself on fire and threw herself out the window after seeing Meg.

I thought the SNL/MadTV jokes were good, as well as the Brian is a racist jokes...Michaels is going to get so mad at them. He's gets mad easily. I can expect a Family Guy joke Saturday on SNL. Or the next live performance.

It was good but it constantly confused me. Are we to take the whole SNL ending semi-seriously and the entire episode took place as an SNL sketch?

I dont think you need to take the endings or anything that happens in an episode very seriously. Remember the David Hasselhoff ending where the entire episode was a dream?

Seriously.  I am starting every gig my band ever plays with "Oh my God, we don't know any songs."  I about had a heart attack when I heard that.  That was comedy gold. 

Also, "I'll pick you up whenever I feel like it" is funny.

David Hasselhoff ending..?

Wasn't it the guy from Dallas? In fact, that was the whole point, as I recall.

In that episode ("DaBoom" ), the whole joke was that the episode was so outlandish (even by Family Guy's standards), that it ends up being a dream. The Dallas reference is that at the end of season eight Patrick Duffy's character (Bobby Ewing) was killed. Season 9 came and went, and then it was revealed in the season 10 premiere that season 9 was all a dream and that Ewing was alive and well (the season opened with him showering, and his wife waking up). (Yeah, it hardly makes sense, but we're talking about a soap opera, people.) Family Guy apparently recreated the scene shot-for-shot. I've never actually seen Dallas, but that's the story.

If you want a better explanation, click here (Thank God for TV Tome...)

By the way, that's one of my favorite Family Guy endings of all time.
