  • Seen better out of Family Guy, but this was funny as hell.

    9.5
    Apart from Roger bashing Meg at the beginning, and Peter doing so at the end, this episode was funny.
  • the best show

    9.5
    Ilove it
  • Begining FUNNY Middle Funny End WTF?

    5.0
    Once again just like Turban Cowboy it fell apart towards the ending.



    At least its better than --Turban Cowboy--(GARBAGE) and --(Unnecessary)



    Season 11 is falling apart jus like Season 10.

  • Well... at least it's much better than the last 3 episodes.

    6.0
    Pretty weak episode, but it's a minor improvement over the last 3 horrible episodes. Peter gets lost in the woods, and Lois finds him. He doesn't seem to adapt to regular life, until Meg talks to him, which he says "Shut up, Meg", another cheap as dirt bashing, which was uncalled for. At least they didn't pull a stunt like with the christmas episode last year!
  • Acceptable (great cutaways, poor plot) but not "A" material

    5.0
    Peter becomes feral after 2 months in the wilderness. That's the bad news. The good new.... he pulls in some funny gags that save this episode. This episode shows how sometimes family guy is saved by the gags/cutaways. The plot wasn't all that good. It wasn't horrible. Peter, Joe, and Quagmire go to Canada for the strip clubs (a typical Quagmire scheme) and Peter gets lost for two months, becomes feral, and must be brought back into human life. It's ok but Peter is actually rather annoying when he's feral and idiotic for crashing the plane. HOWEVER, the episode is turned from bad to acceptable by it's cutaways. I loved the king of the hill/american dad intro. the davy crockett joke got me laughing as did quagmire's canada strip club song. I thought the consuela curling joke was ok but not hilarious and the predator bit was a miss on me. I did hate the fact that trashing Meg is what revived Peter. It pulls way too hard on the hate on Meg bit commonly abused on the show. This episode continues the first weak season of Family Guy since season 5 (1 through 4 are good and after 6 it's good.. but 5 was just stale). Hopefully Seth Mcfarland and his talented team can save this season before it's throughmoreless

    • Lois : Peter, wake up. You're having a nightmare.
      Peter: (Wakes up) Lois. Thank god it was just a dream.
      Hank Hill: (Enters the bedroom) Hey, Lois. What is that fat man doing in our bed. (Wakes up in his own bed) Damn it. I always wake up before I find out if they can understand the baby.

  • NOTES (1)

    • This episode starts off with cameos from the Smith family from American Dad and Hank from King of the Hill. Back in April 2010, Seth MacFarlane claimed that this would happen in the season eight episode, "April in Quahog," which turned out to be an April Fools joke.
