An improvement for the season
1 May 2009 | by MairegChernetSee all my reviews

Season seven has been quite mediocre. The jokes have been redundant and the cutaway gags have been too long. This episode displays more of the same but has more originality as far as plot and jokes were concerned. in the episode Stewie begins a using steroids in order to gain some muscle after a Joe's daughter kicked his butt. In the process Stewie develops a macho stature as well as an obnoxious behavior, picking on Brian and others around him. However, there was a sub-plot which took up almost as much time as the main plot. the subplot was about Chris dating a popular girl at his school and the whole thing was just not quite family guy material. it was just filled with dry dialogues and not-so-funny jokes. overall the part about Stewie and his steroids was quite funny and for this I say the episode was an improvement for the season.
