Well...they just couldn't leave James Woods dead, could they?
I didn't mind James Woods coming back or the convoluted explanation of how he's still alive, but the end result didn't lead to anything all that funny. I was having a lot more fun with Tom Tucker and his terrible acting, dating back to his unforgettable Halloween 4 performance.
The B-plot felt all too brief. Needed more Ellen Page.
It was a really good show up until the re-emergence of James Woods. It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but once he showed up, it just didn't feel as funny as the first half. And that first half had some really good yet simple bits that had me cracking up. The best was the taunting squirrel Brian has to put up with.
As for the Chris/ young Lois bit, it was good, if somewhat short. The end to it was a good mix of heart warming and raunchiness (Lois raising Chris' confidence and then rewarding him with a filter-less internet). And Stewie talking about oedipussy (sp?) was pretty funny as well.
Overall, a pretty good episode that seemed to fade a little bit in the second half.
I fogot James Woods was dead. I didn't mind him jumping into the plot since Peter was actually accomplishing his job, so it had to fail. I will say I thought they hit a lot of home runs with the Odeipussy, taunting squirrel and the Michael Meyers bit. If anything, its been one of the few Peter episodes I enjoyed. I still wish James Woods was captured in a box though.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.
Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
I liked this one, too. I've always liked the James Woods episodes, but I think we're getting diminishing returns here. The bit with Tucker as Michael Myers and Peter's comment of "you know what they say, tough actin' Tinactin" were highlights for me. The B-plot had promise but fell flat until the finish with Glenn.

Midnight In Paris isn't one of Woody's best overall, but it's certainly his best in a long while. It's just fun -- Owen Wilson is, in my opinion, captures the 'faux-Woody' main character better than any of the other faux-Woodies in Allen's recent films.
