This is another one that felt like it went through the motions. Peter doing jury duty got a few laughs, but that's a segment that definitely needed more Kool-Aid Man.

The grand April Fools joke led to a tacked-on conflict between Peter and the kids. But if there's anything more annoying than a tacked-on conflict, it's a tacked-on solution. Here's an Xbox 360, drive-thru, good-bye. No semblance of a plot and no semblance of a resolution.

This episode gets points for Adam West goofing on the Orion logo and Peter's fun with Modern Warfare 2, but not much else.

This is the last new episode for a few weeks, until we get the Big 150 featuring a major change for Stewie and Brian. If it's what I think it is, it'll just cement the 8th season as the one where Family Guy jumps the shark.

The real April Fool's joke was on us. They were promoting *this* episode as the crossover episode (thefutoncritic.com), with appearances by Stan and Francine Smith and Hank Hill. They even released a promotional photo of Peter and Lois talking with Stan and Fran.

Don't know if the cameos would've made a difference, cos this one was not good.

I thought it was good. The tacked on conflict had a tacked on resolution which I am not sure what you are complaining about. I did love Stewie's comments about homo-erotic action figures. The sad part is out of the four cartoon shows, I laughed at this one the most. I have to make king of the black people, my avatar.

Usually I love the random flashes, the "remember the time I..." moments, but I thought they were all pretty bad tonight.

I appreciated the "Bird is the Word" moment, definitely LOLworthy. I also got myself a little chuckle out of Brian's really brief Muttley impression.

The wild card performance night, as I understand it, consists of a field of contestants, picked by the judges (and producers, of course), that didn't make it into the Top 9. Allegedly, the field could be made up of both Top 36ers and non-Top 36ers.
