Man, we haven't seen Arianna in quite some time, and she was great.
"$2000, do you know how many recorders I can buy with that? All of them, because they are cheap like you."
At first I thought it was weird that Freight Train would suddenly care about Cleveland, but then I realized that it was "Jocelyn Elderwood" that cared, and he only wanted to use the predicament to get him successful again. I really liked how the whole murder played off: Mr. Waterman poisoned his wife so he could finally be Mr. Coroner.
Also, I really loved Gus's "workout video." Pure David Lynch weirdness.

It was only natural that Junior would be experimenting with food to the point making food with molecular gastronomy.
I liked that everyone assumed the reason why Dr. Fist kept seeing Cleveland was that he was dying. Makes a lot of sense that Cleveland considers Holt, Lester & Tim "the second tier." I really wanna see the other group of friends.

I still love the whole Jesus Walks / Vanessa songs and the song the family sings to Jr. trying to get him to believe in God.

And, look, it's fucking amazing when stoned. I'm not going to lie. That and American Dad!, just, wow.

Oh well, it had a good run! Wonder if Cleveland will return to Quahog with Donna in tow.
I think its a safe bet if its for sure cancelled. The article has a 4/17 update from FOX about the status.
Myself, I've been thinking the last couple seasons they have been doing more, not "crossovers" per say, but having FG characters appear on CS and vice-versa why not just put Cleveland and family back on FG (it seemed like every other or every few episodes someone appeared in some sort of gag or something)...and then also have Cleveland's friends appear every now and then on FG too.
I honestly liked this show more the last season or two over Family Guy. I feel AD has been the best of the three for a while now, but the last couple seasons all three have suffered in quality a bit.

Wasn't really too fond of this episode, but I really liked Roberta's speech to Rallo about Junior's candle of hope. That was rather touching.

Loved Robert slapping Federline. Granted it was off-screen, but highly satisfying. And yeah, not shocked that Gus lives in a mausoleum.

Even more satisfying was that even Roberta thought he deserved it and wasn't mad at Robert at all. Though I'm irked that that was Roberta's only "appearance" in the episode.

Actually glad there was minimal Junior, as well. I really like him, but he gets way too much screen time sometimes.
Surprised that they really did up Cleveland's circle of friends by keeping Dr. Fist with them. Color me shocked. FG's always been too afraid to add to Peter's posse for some reason or another, so I appreciate them experimenting with a fifth member on CS.
Rallo's trick at the end reminded me suspiciously of the Golden Girls episode where Blanche, out of anger and jealousy over Dorothy dating one of her men, calling the cops on her and telling her that she'd stolen her (rented) Mercedes.

For once, I agreed with Donna. That was sick, what Cleveland and his guys were doing. Though at least Cleveland realized it, too, in the end.
I was also with Donna. in surprise, when Cleveland actually gave a pretty good, thought out, heart felt reason for why he wanted to spend time at the cemetary having dinner and the like with her.

Paid mourners are a tradition that go back to biblical times (professional mourners). How is that so different from funeral directors, who offer support and comfort in a funeral home?

Why can't they cancel "Family Guy," which is disgusting, and keep this one? The "Cleveland Show" still has a bit of heart and hasn't gone full-out gross the way "Family Guy" has.

I'm in New York and NASCAR pre-empted it, too. American Dad ended up airing around 10pm since everything else was moved back half an hour.

The episode was pretty good overall, interesting to finally see Tim and Lester's fathers, the subplot with Rallo and Junior was cute, funnniest part was the gang singing "we didn't start the fire".

Two episodes tonight, because they're showing the episode that was pre-empted last week.
First: "I have something to tell you." "That Roberta's my mom?" "Don't ever say that again."
"Boog-kake." Yeah, the show got away with that one. Rallo having a peanut head (as do the rest of the Tubbs) actually makes some sense, considering the shape of his head with the hair. I liked Junior's bits, especially his evil voice.
Also, this is probably the only show to treat RC Cola as serious business.
Second: "Everybody's grounded!" "Aww..." I loved that.
I liked Cleveland and Donna bonding with their moms.

Well, it had a good run, and I must say that I'm a bit surprised--although I shouldn't be. With three shows on at the same time, it shouldn't have been much a surprise that the newest one would go (as the one that was pre-empted the most, it fell into the same bag Futurama and King of the Hill did). But I will miss it--for some reason, it seemed to deal a bit better with the whole "bad parenting" idea, much better than FG. Certainly, if it had gone on, it would've gone the way Family Guy has (remember season 1 Lois and Peter compared to now?), but maybe not--American Dad seems to vacillate between FG levels of disdain (especially Stan) and being somewhat loving towards the kids.
So, now there's an open timeslot...what's to take its place? Napoleon Dynamite (crossing fingers futilely...)

Well, this is it: The last two episodes. It's been quite a run.
First Episode: This was a good one. Heh, Cleveland was able to tell himself in 1977 to buy stock in Apple, but Little!Cleveland thought he said applesauce. Cue jars and jars of applesauce appearing in Freight Train's garage.
"There's a peanut butter store?! Dem squirrels lied to me!" Demented Freight Train was freaking funny. I knew something was wrong when Freight Train told Cleveland he loved him. Loved Gus' haunted lowrider hearse.
I really liked Rallo & Junior's subplot with the cherry picker. They actually helped people. "All kids under the age of 7 know everything about trucks and dinosaurs. Then we forget that when we see Star Wars!" So true. The little kid falling off the Magic Giraffe at the end (landing in that position that all Seth MacFarlane characters do when they fall down) slayed me.
Second Episode: Robert & Donna's mom...gettin it on. Then adopting a kid and not realizing their own children would love their parenting. Oh, and Junior pole dances. Yeah, the last one was better.
"How'd we get stuck with this?"
"We are dumb."
What a way to go out.

I hope Napoleon Dynamite returns somehow as well. Who knows? Maybe CS will be brought back later if either Bob's Burgers gets cancelled or Murder Police flops(FOX has yet to officially cancel the show)
Posted May 30, 2013 @ 11:57 PM
I think CS could still survive if Seth and Mike think to seek out other venues like Adult Swim or Comedy Central. After all, the latter brought back Futurama for at least three seasons, so who knows? Might do the same with this show, too.
