It's very sad
14 December 2015 | by See all my reviews

Family Guy used to be centered around the characters. The first 8 seasons there were many, many episodes that just were hilarious throughout because the plot were simple and it felt like you were taken to another world, the Family Guy world where you couldn't wait for the next episode to see what would happen. Now it just seems so fake, they removed the humor from the characters and ultimately the show. When's the last time they based an entire episode on a normal day for the Griffins? (Like Stewie and Brian fixing up an old house? lol) The characters have been getting softer and softer and the episodes continue to deteriorate because they try and make them about current events or newsworthy stories. Half the episodes recently have some kind of controversy, whether it be race, politics, or social issues. The whole reason i loved Family Guy was because it was funny, the characters were so different than any other show and probably most of all, i was able to get away from the real world for 20 minutes. This episode was rock bottom. What the heck was this? Very disappointed i spent time watching it.
