It's probably all you can ask for from a 100th episode. Not much in terms of jokes this time around, but the story was pretty solid. And hey, it's nice to see Stewie finally kill the vile woman...sort of.
Best Moment goes to the Kool-Aid Man busting into the courtroom, which was the best way to bring all 100 episodes full-circle. Thumbs up, especially for the last five minutes, which will make you want to see Episode #101.
Part 2 comes next week. Enjoy it, because if the WGA strike gets prolonged, new FG episodes will be in short supply.

"My good man, would ya please pass the Port Plus?"
The epidsode itself was pretty solied, with the line of the night being Peter in court "If I had a gun on a boat I'd kill you right now." The special beforehand made Seth McFarlane look like a pompous ass, and not in the funny self depricating humor way, but in the boy he sure can be a prick way. Though the here's to another 100 episodes lets hope this time we dont get canceled for 2 and a half f*#&ing years in the middle line was pretty funny.

I liked the special beforehand and laughed the whole way through. He's done the 'fireside chat' schtick before on Adult Swim, so I wasn't surprised by that. Great montages of some of the best FG moments so far.

Originally posted by whateverLOVED the ST:TNG ending. That was beautiful.
Oh absolutely! I thought it was brilliant to use the ending from one of the greatest cliff-hangers in TV history as the end of the biggest cliff-hanger in Family Guy history. Best part of the night for me.
As far as how much of a dick I think Seth McFarlane is now... well I guess I already gave away that I agree with Doc Whiskey's assessment of him.
Good group of clips though, definitely some great moments there, and the "here's to another 100 episodes ..." line was the line of the night from all shows for me.
I don't normally like clip shows, but the Edison & neighbor flashback won me over. And I'm gonna echo the sentiment; the Best Of Both Worlds cliffhanger, right down to the credit font was tremendous. If or when Adam West's term as mayor comes to an end, I wish Patrick Stewart would be elected in his place. Seth being a fan of Star Trek nonetheless.
Line of the night: "I'm gonna pretend you guys are the New York Knicks!"
The Seth segments didn't bother me, but I didn't think they were that funny. But I did really like when he asked the woman if she'd still cancel the show if it meant David Hyde Pierce would be out of work.
What makes PTI work is the chemistry between Wilbon and Kornheiser. LeBetard is a nice sub and I enjoy his shtick, but long-term you're just not going to re-create that. (Not that it will stop ESPN from trying when the time comes.)
