After a long wait arrives a new episode.
28 April 2008 | by MairegChernetSee all my reviews

For those wondering what the title of this episode is, it is called The Former Life Of Brian. It just premiered on fox last night, and yes it was awesome. It had the typical family guy humor, with 90% hilarious but sometimes prolonged jokes. One thing that became apparent in this episode was Stewie's ( knowing or unknowing) homosexuality. I don't know why the creators decided to transform this maniacal evil genius into a sassy and bold homosexual guy. It's still funny though, not that I am complaining or anything.

In this episode Brian finds out that he has a long lost son and decides to do his fatherly duties. Enough said.

Awesome episode. I loved it, and I can't wait for LONG JOHN PETER to arrive next week.
