This episode started off with one of the funniest manatee jokes in a long time with Brian and the neighborhood dogs. The opening segment, overall, was the funniest this show's been in a while, especially with how subtle they were with Chris's crotch fire.

Brian: Ah, it's a period joke.
Peter: It's a period period joke.
Brian: Ha haaaaa.

The only complaint I had with this one is that it got really heavy at the end with the idea of Brian killing himself in a kidney transplant. In fact, the wheels pretty much fell off at that point. Barring that, this is one of the better half-episodes of the season and (for the first half) got back to actually being funny. And funny is all I want from this show.

Now if only they could deliver solid humor for a full half-hour.

This episode hit close to home for me as almost ten years ago I was in dialysis and had to have a kidney transplant (not from my dog, thankfully).

What Peter went through was a reminder of my own life, the yellow skin and the blood.

Good episode though, but I disagree, I don't think it fell flat at all...it did gave me goosebumps near the end.

I'm really curious to find out what set Zed off about this episode. If it was the Chris-Meg-Obama B-plot shit, then yeah, that was horrible. But I blocked that out and had a hard time remembering it when I was trying to figure what was so bad about this episode. But the A stuff was aces.

That last commercial break was strangely timed. I was beginning to think that they were going to do something game-changing.

I finally got to see it and I thought it was fairly well done. I also thought they were going to kill off Brian as well and maybe have Stewie go after Peter instead of Lois for the rest of the run. The Obama B plot was not the worst B plot of the season mainly due to the fact the A plot took about a lot of the time. I don't know if its a weird coincidence, but a lot of comedies I am watching have been going down a dark road. How I Meet Your Mother killed off Marshall's dad and even ran a countdown clock for it. I guess people don't like drama in their comedies at least heavy drama. I am used to 80's comedies like Family Ties, Cheers and Night Court, they went to some sad places at times, I guess I am used to it.

Did Rob go too far in tonight's amazing race? I mean, our unfavorite team was eliminated. We hated that guy, but the least Rob and Amber could have done was roll down the window, pulled over and asked if everyone was OK.
