Funny stuff
17 November 2008 | by (Staten Island, NY) – See all my reviews

Great episode! Compare this one to the recent 2 seasons and you would almost think you're watching a totally different show. Also compare Stewie's depiction here versus the current seasons--he's a total fop now, and not funny at all. He had a great line in this one "Oh, splendid! Fido McCoke-fiend is home" I love the Bullwinkle parody (how many viewers was this lost on?). I also liked the David Letterman spoof too. In fact, the older shows had many takeoffs on older television shows, which were very clever. I tried watching the latest episode today and could not sit through it. It was just not funny at all.

This and the follow-up episodes are great, especially Stewie's attempt to hypnotize viewers on Bill Cosby's show. Funny stuff.
