      The second season of Family Guy starts on steady footing with this enjoyable tale that was one of the first to really go crazy story wise.

      In a complete stand alone, the Griffin family prepare for the impending year 2000. While everybody prepares for an promising celebration at Quagmire’s house, Peter meets a man in a chicken suit who warns him of the coming apocalypse with a dismal warning of “Y2K” (which Peter mistakes as an advert for “sex jelly” to


      begin with). Terrified, Peter drags his family down to the basement to wait out the end of the world and is happy when the apocalypse finally arrives and he can prove his family wrong.

      With the world outside ravaged, Peter decides on the family’s only home - to travel to the country’s largest Twinkie factory where they can leave of the cream filled snack food for the rest of their lives. They finally arrive and establish New Quahog.

      This is a ...


      • brilliant episode, and very fun. There’s a real pick up from the more pedestrian first season and the characters seem to take shape. Stewie seems more like the Stewie he’d become, Peter is more the idiot than ever (and in this episode, establishes his long running feud with the Giant Chicken).

        The gags are forthcoming, with some particularly hilarious moments. After suggesting the twinkie factory, there’s a cutaway to a snipped from a documentary “Twinkie the Kid” about a living Twinkie

        with a fondness for Wonder Woman. There’s another good scene with the Griffin family encountering Randy Newman on their search for a new home, but Newman’s incessant singing drives them away.

        A real treat of an episode, that’s bizarre storyline gets quickly written out of canon with a live action ending in which Pam Ewing wakes up to find Bobby stepping out of the shower in a spoof of the infamous Dallas moment, in which she recounts her horrific Family Guy dream.
