Still out of a job, Peter decides to buy a fishing boat and become a deep sea fisherman. The fish aren't biting, however, and the loan company is threatening to foreclose on Peter's house if he can't repay the money he borrowed to buy his boat. He hears about a $50,000 reward for catching the famous man-eating fish, Daggermouth, so together with Joe, Cleveland and Quagmire, he goes in search of the killer. Meanwhile, Lois shows Meg how to party like a pro at Spring Break. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <>

A let down...
5 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of "those" episodes of family guy that is on the lower end of this comedic series. There's really nothing wrong with the story of the episode, it's just the fact it's simply not funny. I was left disappointed, considering most of the previous episodes were hilarious. I hate comparing episodes or films, but standing alone this episode still isn't that funny. I've watched it a few times as well not back to back but over a long span of time and simply can't really enjoy this episode.

Peter ends up buying a boat to get a new job, but can't afford to pay back a loan for 50,000 dollars. He decides to try to kill Daggermouth, the jaws rip off of a killer fish. The whole episode builds up to the climax but lets you down. i know it's not an action show but FG has done hilarious fighting scenes between characters, which is what I was expecting. Overall 6/10
