Trivia

Because the show often ignores continuity if it would prevent funny and crazy stories, the producers took the unusual step after the Season 9 premiere of announcing that the events depicted were 100% part of the series canon--and that the deaths of characters such as Diane Simmons, Muriel Goldman, Derek Wilcox and James Woods would be part of the show's stories going forward. However, in Season 11 James Woods is magically returned to life, with the surreal explanation that he was revived via the life force of a teenage girl because that kind of re-animation is available to celebrities in the Family Guy universe.

Excellent animation in an hour-long special with a clever storyline; albeit it's lacking the usual obscenity and gags
15 June 2011 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Peter receives an invitation in the mail to a dinner in his honour at a mansion somewhere in the country. Of course, being Peter Griffin, it doesn't matter why there's a dinner being held in his honour or who the host is, just as long as it's a free weekend he doesn't care. So he ignores the families concerns and they head off to the mansion. After a considerably long journey, the Griffins arrive at the mansion, only for many familiar characters from Quahog to arrive also. It appears that they all received an invitation for a dinner in their honour, and when the mysterious hosts turns out to be James Woods, the evening turns bad when some of the guests begin to turn up dead and it appears that there is a murderer in their midst.

Gathering many of its plot elements from the 1945 film "And Then There Were None" - including the title, but following the same story line as the 1985 film "Clue", this looked like a perfect idea for an hour-long "Family Guy" episode, with many of the well-loved and popular characters present in it - Quagmire, Herbert, Seamus, Diane Simmons and Tom Tucker and Carl and Mort Goldman, as well as the brilliant Mayor West. Of course, the best part about this episode is trying to figure out who the murderer is!

The animation is superb here and is essentially on a greater level than the rest of the typical "Family Guy" episodes, obviously because this one is a special. It's a fun and clever episode, however it's lacking in it's usual obscenity and gags with only a few mediocre points with the occasionally laugh-out-loud moments that come few and far between (My favourite part would be the idiotic chase around the table). Overall, this is quite a good episode with a clever plot, but in terms of the usual "Family Guy" in terms of humour and obscenity it falls short, but when the funny moments do arrive, they are quite good.
