Storyline

Unable to shake his neuroses, Brian decides to give something back to the community by using his expert nose to help the police force sniff for drugs. His help puts dozens of cocaine traffickers behind bars, but he soon finds himself getting too enamored of the powder. When he finally breaks down and admits he's addicted, Peter decides to join him at the rehab center. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Funny stuff
17 November 2008 | by 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.
