The One Where Peter Needs A New Kidney...
26 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. I think it's funny, interesting, and I love how they explain the giant chicken that Peter always fights.

In this episode, Peter constantly drinks an energy drink that he created, which ends up destroying his kidney. So he is in need of a new one. Brian offers one of his, but since they're so small, Peter would need to have both, leading Brian to die. Now, before you think about how sad it would be if Brian died, think about that fact that dog kidneys, as far as I know, aren't compatible with humans. Meanwhile, Chris gets to introduce President Obama to his high school after plagiarizes a poem written by Meg.

Fun Fact: Dr. Hartman mentions that he tried to clone a chicken, but ended up with a man- sized chicken who was incredibly hostile, this refers to the giant chicken Peter fights in many episodes.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
