  • Eeeh, not there best classic.

    6.5
    It was ok, but the plot was extremely sloppy.
  • Whoever was responsible for writing episodes needs to be fired.

    1.0
    I'm autistic and I find this episode EXTREMELY offensive. In fact, it's probably even more offensive than that one South Park episode where Cartman fakes a mental disorder.
  • Weak premise and only a few funny gags.

    6.0
    I didn't really care for this episode. The premise was very weak for a Family Guy episode. The episode is about Stewie and Chris getting lost in the woods and Lois goes to a fortune teller to find out if they're OK. Since then Lois has been addicted to getting her fortune told. The jokes were hit and miss in this episode. The Starlight Express and the Thorton Melon gags were lame while the ones with Quagmire as a condom and Stewie and Meg in the bathtub were funny. The Down Syndrome Girl song wasn't funny, but I can't say it was bad either. Very average episode that is only worth watching if you're a true Family Guy fan.moreless
  • Are all of you's supporting Sarah Palin's and the Parents Television Councils criticism of this episode?

    9.0
    This was one of the best episodes of the season and the treatment of someone with down syndrome was refreshing and the musical number was great the best since the FCC song. I found it funny that Seth MacFarlane picked on Sarah Palin for once cos we all hate her and once Ellen said that her mother was the former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin probably threw her down syndrome kid at the TV. One of the greatest episodes of the season B+.moreless

    The song was WAY too long, but Chris' plot was better than peter's
