Good Episode, Incredibly Stupid and Offensive Joke
27 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is a good episode, Brian directing porn is a great premise and all in all it's pretty funny. The joke about Sharon Tate is absolutely shameful however and should never have been written, produced, televised or released on DVD.

There are a couple of stupid, offensive jokes in season 3 - the one about Jonbenet Ramsey is also woeful - but this joke almost ruins the entire season, even the entire series for me. Doesn't Seth Macfarlane have a conscience? Doesn't he monitor the writing in his own show? That joke should never have made it out of the writing room. Family Guy has always been inconsistent but jokes like this don't sit with the style, wit and humour the show is loved for.
