Stewie continues the tradition of having a bigger penis than Peter. Somehow I bet Meg would win, too. Speaking of Meg, nice to see her have a plot for once. Dr. Hartman is such a horrible doctor, he doesn't even have Meg wearing scrubs. And when she did, it was too big on her. At least she managed to save the day.

I'd ask to see more parodies of bad public access shows, but that's what Tim & Eric Awesome Show was. Which I liked. Mostly.

I know that Lois' heart was in the right place to get Peter to actually help around the house, but I feel absolutely nothing that both sides of this whole part made Lois and Peter unlikable.

Totally not surprised that Adam West would watch a public access kid show, but anything that he does just makes me laugh.

I don't agree. Lois made way more valid points than Peter did. I don't think she was made to be unlikable at all. Although I did burst out laughing at her assault at CostMart.

Sheesh. On AD or CS, Meg would've been thanked.

Dr. Hartman is such a horrible doctor

That came out of nowhere for me. He'd always at least been portrayed as a better doctor than we saw tonight.

This was the first real Peter/Stewie interaction I'd really seen since that time Peter started spending more time with Stewie. You know, the episode in which they went to Disney World. And on a side note, this must've been the first time I actually saw Chris holding Stewie. Usually, it's Peter (albeit rarely), Lois, or Meg who holds him.

I wouldn't have blamed Meg if she just let Peter bleed to death.

I know I'm probably letting my hatred of Lois speak for me, but Saggy Naggy made me laugh. And I loved that for one brief shining moment, pre-cancellation matricidal Stewie came back when Lois was assaulted by those kids.

He probably only did because he knew he wouldn't get caught for it.

Oh, and while I'm at this, Ted is so the kind of movie Seth would make. Especially given the movies shown on FG between humans and animals or humans and not-so-inanimate objects. And it's so obviously going to fail.

Hopefully the series finale has Meg going to medical school and then going on to be a successful doctor with no contact with her asshole family. Just sayin'.

I liked this episode, showed Lois' more bitchy side - it felt like though she was basically wanting Peter to do EVERYTHING while she went out and did her pilates and other hobbies. Marriage is a partnership, two to tango - etc, nevermind....

Is this a continuity error because last I recall Mother Maggie and the rest of the farm were British and set in England?

The season before last, there was an episode in which Stewie auditioned to be on an American version. Subplot involved Lois stealing Meg's very-much-normal boyfriend, Anthony, from her.

I kinda hope not, because I have to admit, the commercial for Ted had me laughing my arse off.

New episode tonight!

For some reason, I love whenever people write with giant quills.

So glad to see Evil!Stewie rear his head again, and meeting an evil Girl Stewie to do evil with was great to see. But they were different kinds of evil: Stewie wanted to rule the world, but Penelope just wants to destroy it. I really liked that overblown fight scene at the end. It felt fresh, but I guess that due to the fact that there wasn't a giant chicken present.

Loved Peter & Quagmire's bro-mance!! At first I thought it was weird but then I found it very sweet.

What is the deal with hearing Chris in the beginning but not seeing him, and seeing Meg at the end but not giving her any lines?

I'm actually more of a fan of Stewie's current characterization, but I'll concede that it's sometimes good to see him occasionally revert to his pre-cancellation self. Just don't do it too much, FG.

I liked Penelope and really hope she returns in the future. I was surprised she succeeded where Stewie failed in killing her own mother.

The beginning of the episode aside, it was nice to see Brian be the voice of reason again rather than his come-to-be-expected liberal, hypocritical douchebag self.

And yes, I liked the "love" story of Peter and Quagmire, as well. There was something sweet about it.

Great episode! I loved seeing the old evil Stewie again, and Cate Blanchett was awesome. Even the Peter/Lois subplot didn't annoy me as it usually does.

I liked Penelope and really hope she returns in the future. I was surprised she succeeded where Stewie failed in killing her own mother.


Maybe for the series finally, she and Stewie will rid us of Lois once and for all. We can dream, right?

Thanks, I thought my recording cut off.

I'm on the other end, where I don't really like sleeping with people. I got a queen size bed and even then it can be too small.

I did like that they qualified the episode by having Brian remark that Stewie hasn't been like that for years. But, funny stuff with Copenhagen and the 1920s theme. I wish they showed more of that. I found it funny in a dry way that "Up yours" led to a regional nuclear war too. No kidding, that's all it took. I would have liked more of that and less of the fight at the end, but it was still a fun episode. And a good callback to Brian being a terrible author.

I'll get tomatoes lobbed at me for this, but Brian and Stewie are the rare TV friendship I just don't buy. Especially since they were practically mortal enemies during the pre-cancellation days. Even worse, I can't buy them being besties. I just can't. Something about it just seems and feels forced and just . . . unreal and unbelievable. That might be one of the reasons I just couldn't stand the vault episode, and why I couldn't buy Stewie pulling back from killing him. Stewie would've and should've been all over that.

I can see it's a stretch to think they're are BFFs, but they've been thrown in some weird situations since the first Road to... episode. And Brian even took him to see Jolly Farm. I can buy that Stewie would be hesitant to kill him and even think of him as a friend. Most of anything Stewie has done has been with Brian.

Ha, the French surrender as soon as you meet them off the plane.

It's actually quite refreshing that Peter cared about Meg for once. Of course, if no one cared about Meg, then the Taken parody wouldn't have worked.

It was refreshing to see Stewie caring for Meg and it was nice to see a different take on his and Brian's "Road to..." adventures (albeit an almost shot-to-shot Taken remake). I also liked the scene where Peter was on the phone with the abductors, it was funny and I actually do think Peter can be that cheap (sometimes, part of me thinks that he is not very aware of what he actually says to others). IMO, the scene with the family at the end was a bit weird (although, we did get to find out what happened to Meg's friend).

ITA, and that's why I liked the first half of the episode. Too bad she still got screwed over at the end. Can the poor girl ever get a break?

So Peter joins the Tea Party, and Brian is again, the mouthpiece that points out the writers' opinion. Yeah. At least Adam West is still funny.

Did these people realize that most of the stuff they're doing were violating state & federal laws? If I remember, they only abolished the town government. Of course they wouldn't.

For some reason, I'd like to see the rest of Chris' version of Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas.

I'm probably a bit more centrist than someone calling himself "Freeper Dave," but I must concur. For example, Seth MacFarlane apparently thinks the town government runs the electric companies? Regulates, maybe, but as far as I know, utilities are usually private and have to fix their own power lines. In fact, it was a big story on the New England news when we had a storm that knocked out power in several communities, and N*Star was taking heat for not being able to get peoples' power back online.

I'm sure I can think of other examples of his lame straw men in this episode, but that one was truly baffling.
