Storyline

Terrible episode of a worthwhile series

This is not the Family Guy we fell in love with. Every other episode in this season is fine, they have gone back to plot lines instead of random gags, that is also fine, but this episode fails on so many levels.

It's hard to believe one of Family Guy's long established writers wrote this episode. The plot is boring and predictable and there is too much violence in the evil stewie scenes to even class this as comedy.

The jokes are dark, sinister and twisted. There is not one funny moment in this episode. I would of thought after the great murder mystery episode, ( And Then There Were Fewer,) they would have stepped up the quality of the episodes that followed , but I was wrong. From this episode I can tell they just cant be assed writing the great scripts they once created anymore.

It's a shame to see the creative streak go so high then so low in just a few episodes of the same season. Every other episode in this season is well crafted and great, this is just trash. Don't waste your time with this one.
