Family Guy is coming off one of its better episodes of the season, so I was a little eager to see if they could string together two solid episodes in a row.

This one was alright, but it felt a little off. There was one manatee joke in the first two segments and it wasn't particularly funny. But this one nearly won me over with the sequence with Chris holding the gun, just because it was so ridiculous.

Of course, if I couldn't get into two elderly WWII vets fighting hand-to-hand, then I guess there wasn't much hope for this one. Better luck next week.

Herbert: Chris, you don't understand. I'm trying to help you.
Chris: Help me what? Clean your pool with my shirt off? Or wash your car in jean shorts? Bend over in front of you to get little bits of lint out of the rug? I know what you're about, Mr. Herbert. FREE LABOR and I'm not into it!

Quagmire's white noise box was pretty awesome and I did like the Thundercats line other then that it was ok. Family Guy has gotten into this annoying habit of making one scene last about 2 to 3 minutes longer then it needs to be. The old man fight was painful to watch even though I did like the ending. At this point, I say Fuck South Park and go back to the so-called manatee jokes, because at least a few of those worked.

I totally agree.

They may be manatee jokes, but at least they made me laugh.

These four minute songs and four minute fights (at least stuff happens with the Giant Chicken) are horribly dull and not FUNNY-- on a comedy. They seem so self-indulgent and not one person says "hey maybe this is not a good idea".

At times there are clever plots, silly gags, and witty satire, then other times we get this....such a wildly inconsistent show.

Yeah, Chris with the gun was the best gag on the show, but I also liked Peter's cat-calls to Meg. Herbert was the perfect one-note joke, so an entire episode devoted to him and his background didn't get me excited.

I thought it was a good episode. At least better than last week's one where they trashed AA and sober people for no good reason. I felt they could had gotten some more mileage out of Chris 'personal amusement' bit, but the stamp collecting, Quagmire's white noise machine, the 'Twilight' puppet show and the gun play was pretty funny all around. And yes the fight might have dragged on a bit long, but I kept on cracking up at the non-stop dramatic music accompanying it in the background.

Best part: very little to do with Brian; he's become a really unlikeable character in the past year, kind of what Lisa became to me about 8-10 seasons into 'The Simpsons'.
