Is it weird that I've been dreading this episode? The longer this show has gone on, the worse the milestone episodes have gotten. And not "boring" bad, like The Simpsons, but actively terrible. So here we go, episode 200!
Let's see...Brian picks up chicks for the hundredth time. Statler and Waldorf get shot. Lovely. Brian picks up a 16-year-old. "Well, I think someone has a Barnes & Noble gift card coming for their silence!" Classy. Then they show off their budget some more. Goody. And another Jew joke. All before the first break!
From there, it turns into a standard Brian and Stewie episode and there's a surprising amount of mileage that comes out of the reverse time plot. The reverse Chicken Fight, the reverse manatee gag, and the reverse classic vomit gag were all great! I'm actually surprised this didn't turn into a pretentious showcase for Seth MacFarlane, so I'll give them that. Also, the Jurassic Park gag was gold!
So yeah, good episode beyond the first seven minutes.
Stewie: Trust me, you can do it! You're so talented in so many ways! Brian: Like what? Stewie: Like......just write down however you think you're talented and I'll sign it.
I skipped the half hour bj to themselves after this episode. I actually think this season has been pretty good. Not great, just good which is a vast improvement. Peter turning on the heat for the stutter was gold. Stewie and Brian is their strongest team up and it made sense to make that the 200th episode. I did like Chris saying he could hear Stewie and Lois telling him, he was a moron.
The Wee Baby Sheamus.Twitter: @realjoecarfley its a bit more toned down there. A bit.
G. Gordon Godfrey, I was wrong about you. So wrong. (Or was that meant to be someone else in disguise? It's actually consistent with the character but came as a shock.) Everything else seemed just to be getting pieces back in place for the finale.
