Family Guy: Season 7 Premiere Recap: Love Blactually

Not a bad start to the season, really. Brian’s looking for romance, and after Lois’ attempt to fix him up with someone from her yoga class fails (the girl comes to a costume party dressed as a victim of the liberal agenda), he heads to the bookstore and meets a nice atheist girl named Carolyn. Romance blossoms, and Stewie warns Brian against sleeping with Carolyn too soon, as this has been the downfall of his recent relationships. So Brian holds off, and after three weeks decides that he’s waited long enough and is ready for a 100% relationship with Carolyn. […]

Son Of A Piñata!: A "Family Guy" Recap

Posted by Sarah Quahog’s Veterans Day celebration is the place to be. During the parade, Peter decides to try “The John McCain Experience”: He crawls into a bamboo cage and is poked with a sharp stick until he starts crying “I wanna be president!” Then Herbert starts singing “I’m Proud to Be an American” with a children’s choir, and the whole town is moved to tears. The performance inspires Peter to be the most patriotic he can be, which for him means wearing a sparkly American flag suit that Stewie says makes him look like the Statue of Liberty’s pimp. […]

It Was All A Virtual Reality Simulation? A "Family Guy" Recap

Posted by Sarah At the courthouse, Peter tells Lois he wants to hear all about her non-death … not that night, because he has plans, but definitely the next night. We see a replay of Lois falling over the back of the ship after Stewie shoots her. Luckily, a passing merman took her to shore and treated her, then asked permission to make love to her. Problem was, he had the head and torso of a fish, and the legs of a man. Lois refused to sleep with him, he got angry (“I think you kind of owe me”) and […]

Stewie Finally Kills Lois: The "Family Guy" 100th Episode And Special

Posted by Sarah We finally made it to the 100th episode, and such an occasion deserves … a recap special! Hosted by Seth MacFarlane, the half-hour special looked back at some of his favorite Family Guy moments and heard from regular people just how horrible his show really is, but the best parts were his comments in between segments: “We celebrate 100 episodes of doing just enough to get by.” “We look back at the show that turned me from a poor, Vietnamese immigrant into a Caucasian millionaire.” “Dharma and Greg … what an awful awful show.” “[He laughs] I […]

Deep In The Heart Of Texas — A "Family Guy" Recap

Posted by Sarah We open with the Griffins watching Julia Louis-Dreyfus in her new show, Now, It’s Just Getting Sad. Brian doesn’t want to pee outside because it’s raining, so he asks to go inside on the paper. Good thing, because as he’s spreading it around the living room floor, he notices the ad that will get the plot rolling: The church is hiring a new organist. Lois auditions, as do the pirate (playing an amazing rendition of “Great Balls of Fire” with all 4 pegs) and the creepy old man (singing the Waitresses classic, “I Know What Boys Like”). […]
