The One Where Chris Isn't Dying...
25 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's so funny. Peter Griffin is just hilarious. Seriously, any situation they put him into will make you laugh.

In this episode, Chris and Peter's favorite TV show gets cancelled, don't I know how that feels? Anyway, in order to get it back on TV, Peter tells a Make-A-Wish charity that Chris is dying of a rare disease, which lets him grow extra nipples that look and taste like pepperoni. The show gets put back on the air, but Chris feels bad about the con. Peter tells the charity that he has healed Chris and everyone starts believing he's a God. And as you can imagine, that doesn't go well.

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