Excellent episode.
7 January 2008 | by See all my reviews

I missed the premiere of this episode on FOX. But luckily the rerun was on AdultSwim last night. And I loved every minute of it. boredom just somehow was not in this episode. this is more of a "political" episode. As boring as politics might seem to some youngsters such as myself, I was entertained watching Lois run for mayor. There were plenty of ridiculous moments , the jokes were fresh and it never had a boring moment whatsoever. I just adore this episode. So far Family Guy has not disappointed me. every fan of the show should watch this episode this is the best episode of season five(of course next to Saving Private Brian.) but anyways watch this episode, it's totally worth it.
