Funny!
17 August 2013 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The second episode in the Family Guy Season 1 is another funny episode. We learn more about the Griffin family and how Peter is a doofus. I like how the show makes fun of pop culture. This is just a tad better than the first episode and a bit funnier. Stewie is a funny baby and I like how they create new ways to use broccoli.

"I Never Met a Dead Man" is about how Peter crashes into the TV satellite and disrupts the whole town's TV power. Now Peter learns to live life without the TV.

Overall, this is a funny episode. It has some character development as we learn more about Peter. It's a bit better than the first one. I rate this episode 9/10.
