Lois gets the job of director for the Quahog community theater and decides to do a production of The King and I. Peter gets upset when he isn't chosen for a part, so Lois decides to make it up to him by naming him the producer. The changes that Peter then insists on create so much disruption for Lois, however, that she quits in anger and leaves him in charge. Free to express his own vision, Peter puts on a show that few will ever forget. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

The king died after season 2
28 August 2016 | by (Cincinnati, Ohio) – See all my reviews

*Review Disclaimer: I originally watched this episode when I was like 12*

This may not be the best plot for a family guy episode. However, it does have the funniest cut away gags I believe in all of the show.

Like I said in the disclaimer, I watched this when I was 12. Nevertheless, I re-watched this episode recently and laughed just as hard like I was an immature kid all over again.

Simple plot: lois becomes director of The King and I Musical. Peter tries out but doesn't make the cut. Lois makes Peter "Producer" Peter screws up the whole show.

Tangent here, I'm honestly surprised at how mediocre the ratings of the first 2 seasons are. Especially when they have objectively the best jokes in the show.
