The One Where Meg Goes To Prison...
26 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's fantastic. I love to see how Meg's personality changes from being a shy, awkward, ignored, seemingly weak girl, to a tough, maybe too tough, jail chick who gets what she wants, when she wants.

In this episode, Brian gets a job writing an article for a magazine about the average American girl, so he chooses to write about Meg, who is very flattered. But then Brian finds out that she's dating a guy who is in jail, and he threatens to tell the family the truth. Meg's boyfriend breaks out of prison and she hides him. Eventually, they get caught and Meg goes to jail as well. She comes back a few months later as a very tough, tattooed jail chick who doesn't take crap from anyone anymore. She becomes the man of the house and bosses everyone around. And everyone is scared of her. Even at school. She beats the crap out of Connie and it's awesome. In the end, Brian convinces her to change back to who she was.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
