The US Army Kicks!
3 January 2008 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

OK... this episode starts really funny : with the US Army coming to James Woods High (Chris's high school from Quahog) and trying to brain wash teenagers so that they join the war in Iraq. In the beginning of the episode, Family Guy spoofs Mike Rooney, Ray Romano, Muddy Waters and The Wizard of Oz. The next day Brian goes to the recruitment office to tell his opinion, but unfortunately, he and Stewie get recruited and later sent to Iraq. The whole training at the Army is really funny (also because they spoof Zinedine Zidane! and mention 4 musicals from Broadway). On a second plan: Chris becomes a rock star at his high school and starts having attitude problems; so Marilyn Manson steps in and clears his head, also giving consistent advices to Peter on how to raise kids! The rest of the episode is hilarious, but it ends in a nonsense (the whole democracy just stepping in in Iraq; which is not quite that funny, but in terms of US politics is real)... In conclusion, just enjoy the show: another Family Guy classic!
