    Peter's plot was funny, Xbox 360 won the kids over, which was funny as it describes perfectly every little kid ever.

    What I liked- Peter revealing the kids bore him and he hates being around them, Peter asking Meg if she was on her period, wanting to snort coke with Chris (and then later on Brian finding the coke), the end of the world being an April Fool's Joke, everyone at the end being mad because Peter sucks at the game, Adam West kicking the stars to form Orion, Quagmire having sex with Bonnie because he said he was a virgin, amongst other things.



    Pretty good. Had some really funny moments and a nice plot. The beginning with Peter trying to get out of jury duty was kind of boring, but the rest of the episode was pretty nice, so overall my final grade for this episode is going to be a B or so, I think is fair for this.moreless
  • Great episode but it could have been better

    8.0
    I thought that this was a great episode of "Family Guy". This wasn't my favorite episode but I did like it was pretty decent. The cutaway with the Oscars was hilarious. The Surfin' Bird gag was hilarious even though that gag annoyed me in "I Dream of Jesus" when Peter just sang it non-stop. As long as he doesn't sing it non-stop like "I Dream of Jesus" then it is very funny. Quagmire asking if he can have sex with Bonnie because Quagmire was a virgin was hilarious especially because Quagmire wasn't a virgin after all just wanted to have sex with Bonnie. Mayor West flying to space with a jetpack and then kicks the stars which says Orion was hilarious. Peter winning Meg, Chris, and Stewie's love by buying an Xbox 360 was hilarious. Peter playing the video game "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" at the end of the episode was hilarious.MY score was just little low because I just hated how the end of the world was just an April Fools' joke. I thought it was mean and cold of Peter to say that he was bored with his kids. Come on, a father should always love his kids and should never be bored with them. Peter taking out his eyeball was also disgusting. Overall, this was a great episode but it could have been better. 8/10moreless
  • Awesome episode, once again!

    9.5
    I thought this was a great episode, and one of the best of season 8 I've seen. There were many parts I thought were funny, like the cutaway at the Oscars, Peter talking about hating ants, and the Surfin' Bird gag. I also thought the crystal meth joke was hilarious, and I liked the ending with Peter playing the video game. The only thing I didn't like was the twist in the plot that the world ending was just an April Fool's joke. Peter tearing his eye out also did disgust me a little, but it is Family Guy so it didn't bother me too much. This was still a great episode in my opinion. Final grade: A. Marebear2009, out!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In an earlier episode from the season, "Jerome is the New Black", while Quagmire is ranting at Brian, he says how he has never seen him down at a soup kitchen. Surprisingly, this episode, after they find out the black hole was an April Fools Joke, Brian says he will be going down to the soup kitchen.

    • Tom Tucker and Diane Simmons said there were 5 seconds left then Peter came in and the family were talking. Tom and Diane then began to countdown from 10 seconds.

  • QUOTES (2)

    • Peter: I'm gonna go to the black side of the town and shout the you-know-what word and see what happens. (He leaves. Sometime later, Peter returns, wearing a crown, cape and a sash that says "King of the black people") They respected me for it.

    • Trisha Takanawa: Tom, I'm here with Stephen Hawking, the only white man in the world who knows more about math than I do.

  • NOTES (1)

    • The show's creators announced that in this episode, there would be cameos from Stan and Francine from American Dad and Hank from King of the Hill, but it turned out to be an April Fools joke because they announced this on April 1st.

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • Wacky Races

      After Peter said something Brian resembled and snickered like Muttley - Dastardley's canine sidekick from Wacky Races.

    • Friends

      When Chris told Peter to name some of his friends from school Peter said one of them was named Chandler. This is an allusion to the character Chandler Bing from Friends.

    • Happy Days

      When Chris told Peter to name some of his friends from school Peter said one of them was named Fonzie. This is an allusion to the character Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli from Happy Days.
