I was fine with the second half, even though I agree the first half was better. It still had some fun bits in bit and at least this time while it was serious, it for once didn't seem to be a preachy Seth piece but an actually interesting debate. And then they went to tack on that ending with the second Kevin and THAT ruined it for me. What was the point of that? Are we going to get any resolution for that?
My favorite parts were Stewie mentioning to Ida that Brian "vomited once he found out you were a monster", little Suzy in her Patrick Stewart voice watching Human Centipede, and of course Adam West story time. All in all a good episode, but that ending really stuck out in a bad way.
Originally posted by It's FalseThey were so, SO close to stringing together two funny episodes in a row. The first half of this week's episode was some of the best stuff I've seen from FG in a long time.
And then they did it again! They took a perfectly good plot and spent the last segment trying to play it completely serious. Dammit, Family Guy, stop doing that!
Everything in the first 15 minutes was great, from the opening parade and JWHS football revue (a musical number kept SHORT!) to Peter's wacky facials to Adam West's flash forwards.

The first half had so much opportunity to be great. I wish it was an hour long. But the serious second half just drug it down. I like how Quagmire backed up Peter on "duty means poop."
In Ep. 1, Tony becomes depressed when the baby ducks take flight from his swimming pool. They were doing what children of any species must do -- break the bonds of their parents and fly away -- but it saddened him. He felt he was losing his own children....
