Family Guy Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
26 December 2012 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Christmas time for the Griffins and Lois thinks it will be the best Christmas ever for the family. While hanging the ornaments the story of Jesus is told by Peter as the family gather around. Joseph hangs out with his friend Ronnie while looking at the virgin Mary. Joseph asks Mary out on a date and she accepts his courtship. Joseph asks Mary to sleep with him but she needs to save herself or be talked about by the whole town. Jospeh wants to marry Mary and Mary has some news for him. Jospeh goes over to Mary's house and she tells him she is pregnant being blessed by god. Back in normal life the family watch A Christmas Carol on the TV with a long gap as Scrouge goes to the toilet. Peter then comes in and the family must make their Christmas call to one of their aunts. Peter then continues his story about Jesus. Joseph and Mary make their way to Bethlahem while three wise men get news to visit the baby being born. The wise men make their way across the desert and visit the king who feels threatened by the baby Jesus. Joseph and Mary cannot get a room in the inn and Mary's water breaks. They then move into a manger. Mary is about to have the baby and God names what the baby will be. The wise men arrive at manger just as Mary gives birth to Jesus. Just as Jesus is born he has to go all bad and kill the king with his lasers before he is killed. After the story a family come to the door about the give birth but are turned away by Peter. Funny episode and probably the best one the show has done in a long gap of time.

EPISODE GRADE: B+ (MVP: Alex Borstein)
