This Ruined Family Guy...
3 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Watching the episode, I almost died; Not of laughter, but of disappointment. Brian has a bad trip and Meg shouts criticisms at her family. This really could've ended well. And I mean it. The Griffins could've just seen their wrongdoings and apologized and promised to take it easier on her. Instead the status quo is god. And Brian's bad trip even could've tied into the main plot. Or at least that Meg and Brian could've gotten along better after this episode. The moral: Stay in an abusive relationship. Why? To the benefit of your abuser. That is the biggest load of B.S. that I have ever heard. My brother abused me as a child, and I snapped. I kind of did what Meg did here. My brother and I get along much better now. He's my best friend. Unlike here, where Meg gets the bad ending, so to speak. She continues to be a Lightningrod for abuse and insult. Although Family Guy has some good episodes now and then, Seahorse Seashell Party (What's with that title anyways?) is the worst episode of anything I've ever seen, next to Ren Seeks Help.
