The One With The Conspiracy...
5 October 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this episode. It reminded me of a National Treasure movie. I love the idea of conspiracies in TV Shows, and movies. It's just such a great topic to use.

In this episode, it's Black History Month, and whilst Steve was researching a paper about George Washing Carver, he discovered a secret. A giant conspiracy, having to do a peanut symbol. That's right, a peanut symbol. Stan gets involved, and together, they try to uncover the truth. Meanwhile, Roger, and Hayley play Jenga. Roger takes forever to make a move, because he's carefully choosing a course of action. After he finally does make a move, and it's Hayley's turn, he screams when she takes longer than a second to choose which piece she wants to move. I love Roger.

Newspaper Headline: "Iran changes flag to middle finger"

Best part of the episode: Roger, and Hayley playing Jenga.

Overall, I give this episode an 8 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Awesome.
