Unexpected and terrific,
28 March 2015 | by (Williston, Florida) – See all my reviews

I don't care what anybody says, I love this episode so much; it's one of my personal favorites of all time. I know people complain that it wasn't that funny or it was boring or whatever. Think what you want. It won't stop me from adoring it. 'Brian & Stewie' was a bit out of character of what 'Family Guy' normally does and that may cause some backlash but for me, it was a bold move Seth McFarland did. I love Peter Griffin but the whole 'animated idiot fat drunken father' seems very indistinguishable compared to Homer Simpson. Brian and Stewie stole the show; these guys are the most interesting characters and the most likable. Why? Both a baby and a dog can talk, and act like full grown people. They go on strange quests together, sing together, dance together, fight together--well you get the point. I just love how dark this episode was and not in the crude-humor dark way; dark as in serious. I love when some comedies or satires take a break from the gags and try to illustrate a point from a dramatic standpoint. Brian and Stewie are locked in a bank's vault by accident and have to wait until it opens. And that's all I'll say but I will say that the ending is unexpected and actually tragic, even by 'Family Guy' standards. And I know people say it's so stupid, that it sucked because this is something 'Family Guy' would never do, but that's not the only thing that makes it so good, it's the depth of our characters. And we learn something new about Brian that really makes my day. Don't get too upset with the fact that it's not as funny as you'd expect, look at it from another standpoint and you might enjoy it as much as I did.
