The One Where Roger Is Not The Decider...
24 September 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode is so funny. After having a huge argument with Stan and the rest of the Smith family, Roger blurts out that he is the "decider" for the whole human race. That he was sent here from his home planet, to decide if Earth was worthy enough to continue on. Throughout the episode we see him in different time periods, deciding whether to let the humans live. Stan and the rest of the family all laugh and, understandably, don't believe him. When Roger takes Stan to his spaceship, we find out that Roger is intact, not the decider, not at all. It turns out that he was just a crash test dummy for the spaceship. I feel so bad for Roger. This puts Roger in a deep depression, obviously. He's upset that, not only did his planet use him for a meaningless mission, but that he doesn't hold the key to killing the entire human race. Overall, I give this episode, a 9 out of 10.
