  • Lois gets addicted to shopping

    Lois's kleptomania lands her in jail, leaving the Griffin household in a worse state of disarray than usual. In an effort to restore their lives Peter breaks Lois out of jail, only to find themselves fugitives living in "Asian Town" Peter takes up sumo wrestling to pay the bills, until Joe sees Peter on television and goes after them. The family takes refuge in the sewers but it is no use; Joe follows them even down there. A miscalculation sends him hurtling towards his certain doom when Lois saves him... which somehow magically absolves her of her crimes. My only thing from keeping the score 10 is that the episode was dragged in several parts. This episode had a bit funny moments, like the part where Chris went to the Take on Me music video, the cutaway with Brian dressed as a girl, a few more cutaways, Quagmire's part (including his own theme song), "Oh my god, you're Jackie Chan!" and a few more. Overall, a superb Family Guy episode. 9/10
