  • Some odd and in stuff but who cares.

    8.0
    The sequel to "Death is a Bitch" which happens to be one of my favorite episodes,well this was not nearly as clever or hip or funny but its got enough gags to recommend.
  • Another excellent episode

    Peter sneaks away on his and Lois' anniversary to play golf at an upscale country club, only to be struck by lightning and have a near-death experience. Death promises to give Peter a revelation to help his marriage if Peter helps him get a date. Meanwhile, Peter sets up a fake scavenger hunt for Lois and the kids, which takes them all over Quahog. Another excellent episode of Family Guy. It was mainly funny but interesting. It was actually interesting that we get to see how Peter met Quagmire and Cleveland (as well Lois' dad, Carter).Peter exploring back in time was good. I laughed at the parts like Peter getting struck by lighting, Peter putting himself, the whole scavenger hunt, and a few more. Overall, a perfect episode. 10/10moreless

    This episode is just one of many examples of why Family Guy was at its best during its early seasons. Original jokes and gags, not as much reliance on popular culture even though this episode itself was quite dependent on it. There were some times where it felt dry and boring, but then it redeemed itself with jokes like when Peter mixed up his words and called Lois worthless rather than priceless, and when he was drawing Lois and gave her bigger boobs. Some other great scenes concerning death, such as when he tried picking up those girls at the beach and the ending where he kills the women. Just hilarious!moreless
  • Great, but not spectacular.

    9.0
    Another reasonably interesting episode of Family Guy, but this one was not as great as its predecessor, but still among the best in this season so far, in my opinion.



    Although I thought that the storyline wasn't the greatest but they did execute it very well, especially with the scavenger hunt set up by Peter. That was an interesting concept, but I didn't think it was perfect in its execution, although still quite interesting.



    Also, I thought that the episode didn't have as many funny scenes as I would've hoped, but it was still quite funny at times.



    I would recommend this episode quite highly, but I would prefer the previous one over this one any day.moreless

      Peter: That's weak.
      Death's Mom: Yeah.
      (They both laugh)

    • Death's Mom: (to Death) Don't yell at your mother! If you yell at your mother, a hen will lay eggs in your tummy.

    • Cleveland: So where is it you need to go, my new honkey friend?
      Peter: Rhode Island. That's not too far, is it?
      Cleveland: Nothing's too far away from Maxine the cheatin' queen. Women. That's not fair, I'm just speaking out of hurt.

    • Cleveland: You just put Peter in the doghouse, which is where your mother...

      Tom: Oh, no, no, no, no, no, I was remembering I accidentally put my shirt on inside out this morning. It's fine now though. So what were you saying about a.... fashion show?
