Storyline

In an attempt to win a tour of the Pawtucket Brewery, Peter drinks an insane amount of beer. In the process, Lois discovers that as long as Peter is wasted, he can play the piano like a professional. This gives her an idea to enter him in the town piano contest to show up a rival piano teacher. Will Peter's brain survive long enough to savor victory?

Masterful
27 July 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the face of over a hundred episodes "Wasted Talent" shines through as, in my opinion, the greatest "Family Guy" episode ever. With a story-line that starts off with a brilliant spoof, the best of it's kind, and leads on to a climactic finish with plenty of action, laugh-out-loud funny jokes and amazing music, as always. What Seth & Co. have done is turn a show already brimming with excellence into a guideline for how adult cartoon comedy should be done.

This kind of episode makes it perfectly clear that "Family Guy" is not only the funniest show on television but the best too, of course, that's just my opinion.
