This episode was released as Season 8's opener and 2nd episode (8ACX01-02) but was released as Season 9's opener and in syndication part 1 & part 2. See more »


In the syndicated print of Part 2, Diane refers to hiding Lois' death by saying " know unless a local cat does something funny." Ironically, the cat she refers to (voiced by Patrick Stewart) appears in a scene that the syndicated print of Part 1 deleted, due to time compressing. See more »


Jillian Russell: Hey... maybe it was that cat who was the murderer! Let me ask him: "Meow meow meow, meow meow meow meow?"
Talking Cat: [voice of Patrick Stewart] We don't all talk like that. I happen to be a professor.
Derek Wilcox: Our apologies, sir.
Talking Cat: I should imagine so. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have papers to correct.

Clever But Less Quirky
7 July 2013 | by gavin6942See all my reviews

When the Griffins and other residents of Quahog are invited to visit the mansion of James Woods, the evening turns into a real murder mystery when guests end up dead and everyone scrambles to figure out who done it.

Another reviewer summed this up as great animation but without the jokes. And that is more or less spot on. This is some of the best animation you will ever see on "Family Guy", and even the plot is pretty great (with some variations on "And Then There Were None" and "Clue"). But the jokes are few and far between, especially in the second half.

I loved Herbert and the "Pinocchio" joke, and having James Woods be the central character automatically helps... but it just did not have the non-stop pop culture humor that we have come to expect (and who really think Jennifer Connelly's hands look like a bag f snakes?)
