It's the first FG of 2008 and, really, it can only get better from here. This was just terrible and I can't help but wonder if this would have benefited from a Seth MacFarlane editing job. The plot (Peter plots revenge against a fast food joint after getting a stroke) wasn't funny, the backup plot (Stewie gains popularity at the high school on a bet) wasn't funny, the random manatee jokes weren't funny, and a lot of the main cast was seemingly MIA. It's been a good season thus far, but this was a major clunker.

Joke of the Show: Peter and Robin Williams; the only time I chuckled through the entire half-hour. Seriously.

I'm going to have to hold you in contempt of CAT.

Not great, not terrible. I remember thinking something was hilarious (besides Kitty McLawyer, which wasn't his name, but I've forgotten THAT, too) but here we are over 12 hours later and for the life of me, I can't remember what it was.

I WILL say that casting Khan Noonien Singh as the bercow was another great inside reference for nerds, of which I am one.

I thought it was alright. I will be showing this to the wife for the Monkees reference, if nothing else. I couldn't get past the animation of Peter post-stroke. That was so, so, so wrong. In a great way.

Count me in for loving the Montalban cameo as well.

Yeah. I don't understand either. COMPLETE waste of talent. I thought the show looked good, but the story wasn't holding my attention. I'll probably stick with it another episode or two before deciding if I'm going to make this regular viewing.
