"Good evening. Tonight's top story: Quahog is infested with loud, hairy creatures, also known as 'New Yorkers'"
24 July 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Well, this is a pretty crazy episode that essentially ends up with the entire Griffin family beating the crap out of each other. A funny, ingenious statement is made about the network and how they might cut the funding for the series, resulting in Peter walking to the kitchen "South Park" style. "Lethal Weapons" is a very funny and witty episode that sees Quahog in it's annual grip of panic when New Yorkers travel up to see the leaves turn brown or something along those lines. Peter hates them because of their rudeness and aggressive manner, so when Bonnie encourages Lois to take up martial art classes with her for relaxation techniques and Lois inevitably begins to kick ass, Peter sees his chance of exploiting his wife as usual by taking her to the Drunken Clam where he plans to insinuate a riot for Lois to handle and take out the New York trash.
