Dull... yet again...
25 November 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Family Guy is funny when it sticks to what it does best, stupid quick jokes, surrealist cut aways and a plot that is essentially irrelevant but serves the purpose. Understand that these are not criticisms of the show, since it can still manage to come up with some good situations and hilarious lines from time to time.

This episode however fails entirely for the fact that it seems to be trying to make some kind of political point, at the cost of humour. Whenever Family Guy attempts parody, satire or a vaguely serious theme it just falls flat on its face and gently suffocates in the mud. The writers need to stop trying to be like South Park and stick to what they do best.

With the first episode of series nine being an hour long yawn fest of a humour devoid parody and this episode being almost entirely boring I can only hope that this was just filler and the rest of the season picks up.
