The One Where Peter Becomes Death...
30 March 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. I just love it. It's definitely one of my favorite episodes from Season 2, as well as the entire series. I've seen it so many times. Over and over.

In this episode, Peter tries to get out of an expensive hospital bill, so he writes on his sign- out form that he's dead. Death comes to collect him, only to find out that he's still alive. So, Death cases Peter and he twists his ankle. Because of this, Peter has to fill in as Death. He doesn't want to do it in the beginning, but by the end of the episode, he enjoys doing the job.

Fun Fact: This episode was meant for Season 1, but aired with Season 2, that is why Lacey Chabert voices Meg, instead of Mila Kunis.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
