Trivia

The Stand By Me segment makes reference to the real-life fates of two cast members. We are told that Cleve, the fat kid, grew up to marry Rebecca Romijn, just as Jerry O'Connell did. We are also told that Quag died of a drug overdose outside the Viper Room, a reference to the real-life death of River Phoenix. See more »

Goofs

In the Shawshank Redemption segment when Andy (Peter) is escaping, he sees the Warden through the grill watching television. The TV has an antenna, but in the next shot the antenna is gone. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Peter Griffin: Hi, it's me, Peter, your TV cartoon pal. You know, Lois has been bitching lately that I watch too much TV and don't read enough books. So I went to the library and picked up three books by the greatest author of the last thousand years, Stephen King. And tonight, I'd like to share them with you. We begin with a little tale called "Stand By Me", about four young boys who went looking for a dead body, and instead found... themselves... and also a dead body.

This is the least funny Family Guy I've ever seen. I suppose it depends if you like full on parodies. Which I don't. It's the laziest simplest form of comedy. Family Guy is usually way above that. Yes the show is full of short parody segments and references to various shows and films. But to make an entire show a parody of just Stephen King was tedious and indulgent and very lazy. It wouldn't have been so bad if the endless parody had been funny but it wasn't. As my wife said 'It's the sort of thing The Simpsons would do'. They can do much better than that. And usually do. Thankfully the rest of the series has been mostly superb.
