Storyline

After inadvertently punching out a pregnant woman, Peter is sentenced to house arrest. Bored out of his mind, he gets an inspiration to build a bar down in the basement so that his friends will want to hang out there. Meanwhile, Stewie is going through his first teething pains, and so tries to invent a time machine to bypass the painful experience. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Really Funny!
16 December 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The fourth episode in Season One of Family Guy is a really funny episode that has some memorable jokes, witty pop culture references, and a pretty good overall story. The characters are getting better with each episode and I particularly liked the dramatic/comedic interplay between Peter Griffin and his wife. For popular culture references, I really liked the Narnia/Tumnus reference.

This episode, "Mind Over Murder" is about how Peter gets placed under house arrest for mistakenly punching a pregnant woman so he opens a bar in his basement. Things get real when all his guests are entertained by his wife.

Overall, this is a really funny episode that has plenty of jokes to keep the usual fan entertained. I really like the stupidity of Peter Griffin, especially in this episode. I rate this episode 9/10.
