      What would a season of Family Guy be without a Road to… episode? They seem to have become part of the infrastructure of a Family Guy season over the last few years and one thing I have noticed is that they are, most of the time, some of the more enjoyable episodes of said seasons. Road to Vegas was episode 21 of Family Guy’s 11th season.

      The whole idea behind this Road to Vegas episode is that Brian and Stewie head to Vegas by using a teleportation machine which manlfunctions and creates clones of themselves. The trip was to see a Celine Dion concert, but everything goes wrong really fast. One set of them makes it to Vegas and the other set walks out of the machine like nothing


      happened, sill at home. One group is lucky and one is unlucky. The set that made it Vegas by the machine has luck coming from all directions. The other set is just slammed by unlucky events like; they’re room was all ready taken, they lose all the money that they brought with them, and gambled away their return tickets. When things seemed bad, it got worse. The lucky set is confronted by a loan shark who gave the unlucky set money, wanting his money. So, instead of Brian getting killed, he volunteers Stewie to be killed. Then the unlucky set return to their third-rate, and I’m nice by saying third-rate, hotel where they both plan to jump to their deaths. Instead, Stewie chickens out and Brian jumps. At the end of it all, there is only one Brian and one Stewie. And the Brian and Stewie who were killed meet up in heaven.

      As I said before, this is another Road to… episode and it is one of the funnier episodes of the Family Guy 11th season, which is sad, because that’s saying a lot. This could be have been a two or three laugh episode and it still would have been better than most of the 11th season episodes. I did enjoy the reactions and events that took place for the lucky and unlucky sets of Brians and Stewies. It was like a paradox. When one set was happy, the other was sad. When one was winning, one was losing. It was two parallel universes existing in ...

      one universe. But, only one set could really exist inside of the Family Guy universe, so I was waiting for something tragic to happen to the unlucky set. I just thinking it’s going to be them who just can’t catch a break and the universe would pick them to be killed.

      I was confused on who were the original or the real Brian and Stewie. Were they the ones who made it to Vegas in the teleportation machine or the ones that got left behind? I honestly don’t think that it was ever revealed on who was really who. I did get a good laugh when both dead Stewie and Brian met up at the gates of heaven and they just said ‘Hey’ to each other. Stewie was angry

      because Brian told the loan shark to kill Stewie and Brian jumped from the hotel room balcony when Stewie chickened out. What a fight that might have been.

      The story itself was well worked with funny parts for both the lucky and unlucky sets. It didn’t have much of the lazy or one-liner comedy that just overwhelmed the 11th season. This was not the best Road to episode, but it was better than most of the stuff that Family Guy has been dishing out. I do think the whole time travel, teleportation thing, has to go away, thou. It’s getting old and does not have the same comedy power that it had before when Stewie was first messing with it. As an Family Guy episode, it was a okay watch.

I love Family Guy episodes and have not even come close to watching season 11. Road to Vegas great name and the episode sounds fantastic. True, there’s only one Brian and one Stewie. I think they make a great interesting pair and for a family that runs strange with dysfunction.

Hi Andrew. I still love Family Guy, even thou the newer episodes get more and more painful to watch. Brian gets a little more political as the seasons go on, which I think has killed his character a little. It has taken a little away from what made Brian so loved. But when him and Stewie get together, there are laughs, even if in the newer episodes there are fewer of them. Thanks for the comment. :)
