I'm a little surprised that FG's already starting to recycle material. I liked this better when it was Lois learning martial arts. But I forgave this one when I saw where they were going with it. I appreciate a good Rocky III homage and this was a good one.
Of course, the problem was that they tried to play it a little too straight at the end and it wasn't played for enough laughs (with the exception of Peter attempting to sing "Eye of the Tiger").
Still, it's one of the better episodes of the season. Good stuff this week.
My DVR crapped out on the last few jokes, but what I saw was at least a good not great. The female Mr.T's hands being too dangerous she can't be a lesbian was a pretty good one. Cleveland's B-day was good too. I thought they could do more, but they seemed really focused on the action part which was ok. Its like the premiere where the mystery was better then the jokes. I wonder if that is a theme this year or just showing off the new animation budget.
Sort of like  Days of Summer, except instead of meeting Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt meets cancer. Seth Rogen and writer Will Reiser's cancer tragi-comedy hits the funny bone, tugs at the heartstrings, and has it both ways.
