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

I love this episode. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes from Season 4, and even from the entire series.

In this episode, Meg feels bad about herself, so Lois takes her to the mall to get a makeover. To everyones surprise, Meg becomes attractive. She starts getting noticed and she is definitely enjoying the new attention. I feel happy for Meg, since she's always been deprived of this kind of affection. Good for her. Then the Griffins decide to start a band, with Meg as the lead singer. But then she becomes stuck-up and full-of-herself, and her ego gets the best of her. She thinks her family is dragging her career down, so she drops them. But this doesn't go well. You'll have to watch to find out what happens. I can't spoil every episode for you. :)

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