probably one I will not be re-watching for a while
18 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

Before I begin talking about this episode I just want to address the fact that it is clearly filler, Boring,Boring filler. This episode focuses on Lois and Bonnie when they take a trip to Paris together but it's not until they arrive that Bonnie reveals here real intentions on the trip, to have an affair. Meanwhile Peter attempts to home school Meg and Chris, For some reason, This plot point leads to filler worse than the four whole minutes of Conway Twitty in 'The juice is loose'. In this episode we have to sit through dancing in the street, The whole thing! The affair storyline was out of character and very unnecessary and out of the blue and it takes a bold face lie to get Bonnie back with Joe! Unnecessary, Boring and over filler filled gives 'Foreign affairs' 6/10
