is the episode even legal?
21 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I live in England so I managed to watch "Partial terms of endearment" when it aired for the very first time and I hated it, I said it was without a doubt the worst episode of this once great show and that it was so bad that they wouldn't be able to make to make an episode that bad again; how wrong I was. I decided to stop watching new episodes after seeing that particular one but I decided to watch this episode because I thought it would be "something special" being the 150th episode, but yet again I was wrong. I didn't laugh at all for the first five minutes and then it got to the toilet humour section, and I was disgusted when Stewie implied what he wanted Brian to do, (I'm sorry but I'm not going to mention it if yo haven't already seen it), and I was relieved when Brian refused. Then Brian decides to change his mind and I was literally shocked, and I couldn't believe the writers actually did what they did.

Anyway the episode goes on and I didn't laugh once, and people say "but it's not supposed to be a funny episode," but that's exactly what Family Guy is! Comedy! I didn't watch this to listen to Brians petty problems or watch a drama show, I wanted to watch something funny. After watching the episode I went to Wiki to see what some professional reviews were, and it said that there was a part were Brian did something even worse than I'd already seen him do which BBC3 refused to air. Again I won't say what it is but I couldn't help but wonder if this was even legal, and I generally wouldn't be surprised if the show was banned off T.V after this episode. That said to be honest with episodes with the quality of this one and PTOE I genuinely couldn't care either.
