I can't say I've had any particular attachment to My Morning Jacket, so I can't say that tilted my view towards this episode one way or the other.
This one got off to a slow start, but got going once Stan headed off for the My Morning Jacket concert. Loved the montage with Francine working as the ultimate groupie. Ending with the security guard also got a good laugh out of me.
Not hard for AD to win the week again. All it really needed was the scene with Francine and the tongs and the scene where Stan almost had a Klaus sandwich.
Since I never saw Almost Famous, I felt like I missed the jokes. Groupie Francine was a niche touche. I bore easily with Stan goes crazy, because he never experience something. It had some good jokes, but I thought Family Guy was the better due to Quagmaire tearing into Brian.
Have you seen The Lottery? I think it was a mix of both. The background buildings and the woman handing the camera (rock) to the kid are obvious. And the whole part about sacrificing someone. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcpOeGUxBFs http://www.
