After last week's hit, it's a big miss here. As odd as it is, without Cleveland around to insert at random moments, the show feels a bit empty.
More concerning was the plot, which just wasn't funny. I do applaud the brief return of Francis Griffin, but man was the rest of the episode a clunker. The best part was the opening sequence, an homage to the campy Superfriends opening.
Between last week's Disney joke and this whole episode, maybe Seth MacFarlane should lay off the Jews for a week. Just saying...

I would agree if they'd actually bothered to put some gags in there. It was like 30 seconds long, and there was exactly one joke. I think someone needs to remind Seth MacFarlane that he makes a comedy show.
I was flipping between this and the Steeler game. I thought it was just an ok episode. Meg walking into the bathroom with when Peter was nailing the Kathy Ireland poster in the showroom was great as well as Peter and Chris fighting over it. Stewie using Kali Mai on Meg was another bright spot as well. I think he is showing the Jews in a more sympathetic light, but I am hoping we move to funnier topics then religion. Superfriends had me rolling though.
I must be in the minority, because I thought this was one of the funniest FG episodes in years ... When "Kathy Ireland"'s head fell off, and then they smashcut to Peter burying the body in the backyard, that just killed me.
The cameo by Francis was also a nice touch (when Peter didn't much care for his Obi-Wan quote and had to muster a deadpan "Thanks") ...
Santino continued his tradition of coming down to the ring, being ten times funnier and more interesting than the other guy, and then getting his ass beat. He said to Rey Rey "anyone who a wears a mask eesa either incredibly ugly, incredibly stupid or...eesa the batman!" Man, if this guy could only wrestle he'd be King Korn Karn by now. Homeslice doesn't even have a finisher. -- Matt Fowler
Picked this one up today. The random jokes seemed to come a mile a minute... (spoiler text) Without spoiling the actual story and the jokes, I will say that they took the easy route casting Carter Pewterschmidt as The Emperor.
