Seems too self aware and pandering...maybe a new writer?
21 January 2017 | by markbytheparkSee all my reviews

This episode to me is a different flavor than all the others. Have to say that it felt a little stilted and "trying too hard" to be relevant with the cultural references. I didn't see the imagination and recklessness that made the previous episodes so amazing. Maybe there was a different writer? The whole episode seemed a very thin social commentary, and not as zany or surprising. I would say that if you liked the other episodes, this is probably fun but not classic. Like a Family Guy filler episode. But like Family Guy, I really HOPE this style doesn't become the norm, because it'll draw the series away from its roots, into the kinda fluff you could see anywhere.
