Peter mentions that he can't get over Party of Five (1994) being canceled. Both "Family Guy" and "Party of Five" were canceled and brought back after letter writing campaigns by fans. In addition, Lacey Chabert who voiced Meg Griffin in season one and part of season two was a regular cast member on "Party of Five." See more »

The One With Petoria...
23 July 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. I absolutely love it. It's one of my all-time favorite episodes, and is probably in my top 3 episodes from this season. It's just so funny.

In this episode, Peter tries to get permission from the city council to build a pool, but he discovers that his property isn't on the town map, meaning he isn't a part of the town, and isn't a part of the United States. So, thinking this would be a great opportunity, Peter creates his own country, Petoria, and starts taking things in the name of his country, for example, Joe's pool. But then Peter gets into a fight with the U.S. government, and things go downhill from there.

Fun Fact: When Mayor West is showing Peter the map, you can see that one of the streets is called McFar Lane, which is a reference to the show's creator, Seth MacFarlane.

Best part of the episode: When Peter takes Joe's pool

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
