Awww, Opie got fired! That's saddens me greatly, but I'd hope he comes back soon.
So it's another "Brian meets a girl" plot, with this one being a blind girl. And it had a lot of funny moments, like Brian creating a fake mugging. I got a kick out of Brian trying his damndest to keep from touching her, lest he expose himself as a dog. The scene at the restaurant was hilarious, even if it was about the third or fourth time that Brian has had his tail chopped off.
The B-plot of Peter and the stairs was something I wasn't expecting to see from this show: a plot that's both simple AND funny.
It's another thumbs up for Family Guy!
Peter: Can she read lips? Stella: Yes, I can! Peter: (covers lips) So if I do this, I can talk about what a sweet rack she has? Angela: Yes, but try not to make a boob-honking gesture with your other hand while you're saying it.
It was nice to see a more shallow side to Brian and even a bit of a darksider. Stewie has been their ace for a long time now and I did love him not coloring in the lines while talking about his drag roller derby name. It was a pretty good episode, not great, but good and at this point that the best you can hope for with Family Guy.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.
Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
Florida Stanley is a GOD. "Did I say Messina?" Erin on the phone, describing what's happened in Florida was great too. And, as mentioned, the opening was the funniest in ages. We had to stop the DVR until we were done laughing.
