    I thought that this was a superb episode of "Family Guy" and it really had me laughing very hard for the most part. I thought Peter being gay was very funny after he got injected and one of them was gay gene. I thought Peter bringing the horse home in the beginning of the episode was very funny. The horse peeing on the floor and then Peter telling everyone to pee was hilarious. It was also hilarious when the horse was chewing on Stewie's head and the horse was licking Peter's butt (although kind of gross). It was hilarious when Cleveland fell from the bathtub and then the horse was licking the bathtub water. I thought it was when Peter put the horse in Mort's store. I thought the cutaway with Peter being Matt Damon's neck was hilarious. I also thought it was hilarious when they were experimenting on Peter and Peter was a squirrel and Seth Rogen. The James Bond cutaway was also funny. It was also hilarious when Peter ran out of the gay people's house naked and then he got the balloons and said "This is mine". The ending was also hilarious when Mort threw the horse (who is dead) through the window. The only thing that I didn't like was that they made being gay seem like a bad thing and I don't have anything against gay people. Overall, a superb episode of "Family Guy". 9/10moreless
  • I do not have a problem with gays, but this episode was just retarded.

    Okay first of all, Brian made me mad because he sent Peter to a straight camp because Lois was upset. Why it made me mad is because Lois accepted Peter for who he was, and that Scott loved him, why can't Brian accept Peter for being gay.

  • Peter turns gay after being affected by the gay gene

    8.0
    This was a great episode of Family Guy. It was hilarious but I gave this an 8 because I thought Peter saying "Guilty" for a long time wasabsolutelyunfunny and some of the scenes bored me. Anyway, Peter telling the family to pee was hilarious especially Stewie's "We're an unusual family." It was funny that all the horses were named after cancelled FOX shows. The horse hitting on Cleveland's house was funny especially Cleveland's tub falling down and then the horse licks the water. Peter being affected by Seth Rogan and the squirrel was also funny. As for the funniest cutaway I laughed so hard at the part when the Asian dad told his son that was doctor. Also, Chris knocking off Lois and farting on Meg was really funny (after he become the man of the house). Overall, a great Family Guy episode. 8/10moreless
  • Peter partakes in medical experiments.

    I find it funny that Family Guy is taking shots at Til Death. Sure, it's not one of television's best, but it's been much better than Family Guy has this season.



    Not to mention they already did the whole listing canceled Fox shows once before. No need to rerun that gag (although I did get a brief smirk out of Cleveland falling from his tub to the ground yet again). I will be happy when he departs for his own series though.



    The only thing funny about this episode was mocking Seth Rogen (I really, really hate Seth Rogen), but other than that this was just as poor as they come. Did anyone else notice that Gay Peter sounded exactly like Roger from American Dad?moreless
