Unexpectedly touching!
6 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The most subtle difference between Family Guy and something like South Park is that the characters are believable and the way they relate to each other is credible. In this episode, Brian is having a midlife crisis - he's seven years old in human terms (in case you didn't know, the maximum life expectancy of a dog is fourteen) and can't stop himself from peeing on the carpet. He blames it on Stewie at first, but when he's caught in the act he decides to see a psychiatrist. The unsettling truth comes out - he's in love with Lois, his owner's wife. This is the cue for a number of surprisingly sensitive (but also funny) scenes in which Brian gets hot under the dog collar watching Lois and Peter chasing each other with a hosepipe, Brian barely containing his emotions whilst he and Lois watch the news together, and Stewie flirting quite outrageously with his mother just to annoy the lovesick pooch! It's a testament to how well-made and thoughtful this series is that I actually felt myself not only identifying with Brian but also falling in love a little with Lois - well, who wouldn't sell their soul for such a sympathetic character who'd fight to the death for her husband and kids, and who cooks a mean 'noodle caboodle' with M&Ms substituting for paprika?! This episode revealed a new dimension to Family Guy, and helped me enjoy the series in a completely different light. No doubt the no-brainers whose idea of sophisticated humour is Cartman kicking somebody in the nuts would find themselves getting antsy during this show, but as Stewie would no doubt say, damn them to pus-filled blood-gutted hell!
