Pretty Darn Funny!
21 December 2013 | by g-bodylSee all my reviews

The sixth episode of Family Guy is pretty funny and is one of the best episodes yet. It has a consistent array of hilarious jokes, although some may be rather racist. If you are Native American or Hispanic, perhaps you may be somewhat offended. But the jokes are definitely funny and I loved the scenes where Peter and his son go out into the woods to find their true calling.

This episode, "The Son Also Draws" gives more significant air time to the Griffin's son, Chris. After Chris quits boy scouts, the family take a trip to a Native American resort where it turns out that Lois gambled away the family car.

Overall, this is quite a good, funny episode which is nice to see as we are nearing the end of Season One. It's nice that we finally get to see more of Chris and his family relationships. And of course, I just love Stewie and his antics. I rate this episode 9/10.
