Is this the greatest episode of "Family Guy" ever?, 23 September 2008
Author: micro_hendy from United Kingdom

With two stories, both worthy of being their own episodes, "Family Guy" dives into a more sophisticated brand of adult humour. Although not the funniest episode I can recall, it really shows other adult cartoons like the simpsons and "King of the Hill" that there's a new kid on the block, and he's good.

If there was an award for the most sentimental moment in television cartoon history, the end of this episode should, in my opinion, win hand's down. With a Primetime Emmy winning song, "You've Got A Lot To See," and acclaim from some tough critics it's apparent that, as television shows go, this is the best of the best.
