I'll have to say that tonight's episode of Family Guy may have been my favorite one of the entire new season. So many great pop culture references, all topped by the "Take On Me" bit with Chris at the milk cooler at the supermarket. I had to pause the DVR to catch my breath.

"He's Quagmire ...."

A lot of the Asian-Town jokes worked for me. I know, picking on different cultures is pretty easy, but I guess simple humor amuses me.

Favorite moments were "Not Meg, NOT MEG!" and Greg Louganis, but the Take On Me bit was so perfect.

I think I am way too young to understand(before my time) the "Take On Me" bit, just didn't get it. Can some one fill me in on it?

Take On Me is a song by A-ha. One of the most popular pop/rock songs from the 80's. The music video for it was done in the same animation style as that segment, and the whole thing was an awesome parody of the video.

Don't forget about the bit from "The Neverending Story." I thought the kidnapper bit in the supermarket was hilarious. Brian not being able to stand in the back of the moving truck was subtly brilliant and Asian Trix was awesome.

Some news - next week's episode is the last new one, I believe, until the season premiere on 9/11. They will have aired 10 of the batch of 13 first-run eps, with the remaining three being the Stewie movie split up into 3 parts. The movie is direct-to-DVD, and will be released on 9/27. So, it would make sense that they air the 3 parts on 9/11, 9/18 & 9/25 just in time for the chock-full-of-unrated-extras DVD release on the 27th.

American Dad is already in reruns until 9/11, but the Pilot is scheduled to air this coming Sunday, 7/24. The Simpsons will also be premiering on 9/11 - FOX is getting the jump on baseball this year.

Don't forget about the part of the show where Peter was trying to do to himself what Lois does on Thursday nights.

Not Meg, NOT MEG!! was awesome, but A-Ha's "Take On Me" was hysterical capped off by Chris pushing out through the eggs and Lois asking where he was and he replies "I don't know, I DON'T KNOW!!" I laughed for a good two minutes after that.

The kidnapper thing ran a little long for me but it was funny nonetheless.

Loved Asian Trix rabbit. Real funny.

And Greg Louganis was so on the mark. That is exactly what I was thinking when he name was mentioned. Hysterical.

This season started off a little weak (for Family Guy standards), but it is really clicking now. I can't wait to see the Stewie movie episodes.

Now see, someone explain that "NOT MEG!" part ... Was it because Meg is the least-loved child in the family, or is it because she's the fattest (I'd think Chris would have that distinction)?

She's the least loved/popular child.

I don't watch...but from what I gather, Family Guy is one outdated pop culture reference after another.

Am I missing something with this show, or is that pretty much it?

No, that's pretty much it. They've actually taken to introducing some of the random stuff, I'm assuming so that people will know when to laugh. I cannot count* how many times a random cutaway was heralded by the phrase "Yeah (cast member) that's even (worse/stranger/dumber) than the time (cast member) tried (easy laugh situation).

(*I've since deleted the episode)

Well geez, it's not like they weren't doing the EXACT same thing the first time around, though - I'm pretty sure people noticed this even back then (and made the same observation/complaints).

Well, I honestly have to say your opinion of the show won't QUITE carry as much weight with me now that you've admitted that.

A good chunk of a given 22-minute episode is taken up by peripheral stuff: flashbacks, what's on TV, retro pop culture references, (really good) song, the occasional marathon fight between Peter and the Chicken Man and other miscellaneous stuff. Some folks might call it filler. Those folks might be right, but those are the things most everybody talks about the next day, anyway.

I appreciate that, but a quick read of the thread gives a pretty good idea of what the show seems to be about, though.

An a-ha reference.
A Greg Louganis reference.
A Neverending Story reference.

Doesn't look like I need to watch to figure out the pattern of the writers.

I was just able to watch the show today. I thought the best parts both involved Quagmire, first with the "Who Else But Quagmire?" bit and second with him going crazy while Lois mentioned trying to fill the hole in her life.

Really, though, the whole show was great, with the aformentioned "Take on Me" and Asian Trix bits.

I also loved Quagmire's freaking out at Lois' innuendo's, finally ending with, "That one is also sexual."
