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.

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.
