    Remember when Family Guy used to be good? Well then watch this episode. From the cutaway scenes involving Peter hitting the deer, to Macgyver, to everything in between. Stewie was great back then and even though Brian-centric episodes are usually weak, this one was far from it. Real dog humor has been replaced in newer episodes with bizarre pop culture references and lizards randomly eating people, but this just shows how great it can be.

    This was a well-written and extremely funny episode of Family Guy when it was the #1 show on television. If only it were even close to that now.
