Can't get much more reliable than the Stewie/Brian tandem at this point in the show's run and combining them with Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase definitely didn't hurt. Good stuff all around, here.

The B-plot didn't quite work with Peter, Quagmire, and Joe trying to form an improv group. Plots like this are sorely missing Cleveland's subtle presence. They also didn't have much of a payoff, though the quick cutaways to James Lipton were good for a laugh.

Better than last week's episode. I'll give it a thumbs up!

Thumbs down for me. I thought they wasted Chase and Aykroyd- I don't know if they had one funny bit the entire episode. And I agree that the Improv sub-plot didn't work either, aside from a few of Peter's ill-timed John Wayne impersonations.

I thought the Chevy Chase thing was weird, since he's on another television show this season, and I know exactly what he looks like these days.

I thought it was one of the blandest episodes I've seen in quite some time. It might have worked for big Spies Like Us fans, but the show just felt like a big misfire.

I liked the bit where Stewie had no cutaway joke since he didn't hear what he mumbled about to set it up. I also liked how Quagmire echoed South Park's criticisms that the comedy needs to be organic. Those jokes gave the whole episode a very self-referential feel.

ETA: I also like the continued references to Cleveland, including the continuance of his house being destroyed while he's in the bathtub, complete with Mr. Bear cameo.
