Disappointing
7 October 2009 | by GenericIDSee all my reviews

I do love the usual nonsense that Family Guy extorts. It is fun, harmless, colorful and exactly what T.V. is meant for, a break from reality. But this episode, more than any other before, was truly disappointing. Not necessarily because there was no real laugh out loud moments which usually filled their earlier episodes but because they had a brilliant opportunity to revive the humor with a genius incident involving Quagmire not realizing there is such a thing as internet porn.

The entire episode, if not more, could have been based on this fact alone and would have been truly original in doing so but instead they stuck to boring religion crap. The writers should know by now that anyone who would have cared if they insulted Jews or Christians, would not be watching the show. Rather, any monkey could guess their target audience is the adolescent age group and college crowd and would have far more enjoyed seeing Quagmire discover the reams of porn, become addicted, have Peter and the gang help him and then have Quagmire (being a die-hard, a young Heff even) try to ban the stuff, wanting to stick to the original 'classic age of porn' with Playboy or something.

The entire lesson could have been based on how the internet has exploited the youth's boundaries and we don't get off on skin mags anymore. And even that bare outline took only five minutes of thinking.

Please put in a better effort and get rid of Brian and Stewie's gay little trips together. In case you don't know, FG is popular because of Peter, always Peter, and when Stewie is a vengeful genius. And for God's sake lose the song and dance numbers; utter annoying boredom. Know your audience!!
