  • This episode meant well, but I honestly was not all that impressed with it when it was all said and done
  • The plot of this episode seemed somewhat interesting
  • As I said before, the plot itself was promising but I think the writers really struggled a bit
  • I love both how he comes out of his house with a very muscular arm (I'll let you guess at the hidden meaning behind that) and how he brings up the fact Cleveland has a moving truck in front of his house (in reference to him moving away to have his own spin off)

      As I mentioned in another review, I had an opportunity to watch some re-runs on TV last night. The first re-run was for the Simpsons but the other one was a re-run of Family Guy that I had not seen before yesterday called Family Goy. This episode meant well, but I honestly was not all that impressed with it when it was all said and done.

      The plot of this episode seemed somewhat interesting. During a health scare, Lois discovers that her mother is Jewish, making her Jewish too (something I don’t fully understand considering her father is not Jewish and I would


      think that his faith would play some sort of role in that, along with the fact her husband is Catholic and she was raised a protestant).

      As a result, Peter decides to worship her faith with her and embrace it only to take things too far like he always does. As I said before, the plot itself was promising but I think the writers really struggled a bit; like they were making an attempt at being funny without going too far and actually offending someone (which is a bit odd for the series to do that).

      And, when they did cross the line ...


      • a few times, to be perfectly honest, the jokes weren’t all that funny. I also wasn’t a huge fan of the ghost of Peter’s dad visiting him because, once again, they could have gone a bit further with it and really didn’t.

        Though, I will admit I kind of liked how Peter had him imitate Obi Wan Kenobi at the very end of that conversation. I think the side story with Quagmire was actually much funnier than the main plot.

        Quagmire, who doesn’t use the Internet, learns about Internet porn from his friends and, as a result, disappears for days on end. I

        love both how he comes out of his house with a very muscular arm (I’ll let you guess at the hidden meaning behind that) and how he brings up the fact Cleveland has a moving truck in front of his house (in reference to him moving away to have his own spin off).

        If anything, the story should have been centered on him. Overall, I would say this is an OK episode and it was nice not seeing an episode I have seen a dozen times before.

        But, I think the writers dropped the ball a bit with it and didn’t make the episode as funny as it could have been.
