  • I expected something like this.

    Lois gets a job working for FOX News and has to do a report on a liberal filmmaker. However, she loses the job when her story implicates a conservative radio host. I thought this episode was great, slightly better than Family Guy, but way better than the bad Juice is Loose episode. I don't get why hate it so much...I never had much of problem of this episode since day 1 of its premiere. My only problems were the dragged parts and Brian kept complaining to Lois about joining the Fox News. This is where I started to notice Brian's complaining over something and it continue to be like in a few more episodes (ex: Extra Large Medium, etc.). Lois' plot was not the best, but I pretty much laughed a few times but the funniest was Lois running and doing the same fashion way in Wasted Talent. Subplot was way better and I liked every minutes of it. I did found it funny that Quagmire is actually 61 years...by eating carrots which makes him younger. Overall very underrated episode. 8.5/10moreless
  • Lois works for FOX news

    8.5
    I thought that this was a great episode of "Family Guy". I thought it was funny when Peter, Joe, Quagmire, and Cleveland were showing each other their new driver's license and then it was revealed that Quagmire was actually 61 years old (that was a funny surprise). It was funny when Stewie goes inside the boz after Peter bought the high definition television and I thought it was also funny when they were watching Ellen DeGeneres talking to Seth Rogen and you can see fish breath coming out of her mouth. It was hilarious when everyone freaked out after seeing Rhonda Latimer in high definition. It was funny when Lois was running home and then scraped her boob after he got hired to work for FOX news. The Batman cutaway was also hilarious when the signal was poop. I also loved the subplot when Peter wanted to create a cartoon for FOX to put on the air and he, Chris, and Meg try to brainstorm. I thought it was hilarious when Quagmire, Joe, and Cleveland were voicing in Peter's cartoon and then Cleveland is using an Australian accent when he suppose to use a moon accent. It was also funny that Peter showed CEO Peter Chernin his cartoon except he just wanted a small little change to Peter's cartoon which Peter missed up because it was just a little change. It was also funny that Rush Limbaugh and Michael Moore were actually portrayed by Fred Savage the whole time. My score was just a little low because I thought it was time-filler when Peter and Chris were whispering in the kitchen about Meg not getting the cartoon for like 3 times and I didn't like when Peter wasn't even willing to make that small change to his cartoon and air it on FOX. Also, some parts were sort of boring. Overall, a great episode of "Family Guy". 8.5/10moreless
  • superb

    9.0
    what i liked- every Handi-quack scene, with Meg suggesting something to add to the show, and Peter and Chris walk out and talk crap about her and her comedic style regarding the show, Brian calling the Fox guy "Adolf" and him saying that his grandparents died in the Holocaust, only for that to be a joke, Peter negotiating to get his show on the air, and failing because of his own stupidity, Fred Savage's appearance (whether or not that was really him, I dunno, but it was still funny), etc.

    good episode. not one of their all-time bests, but it certainly was a more than enjoyable way to spend a half hour of mytime. i laughed a lot and i really enjoyed Peter's Handi-Quacks scenes. B+ or so I think is fairfor myfinal grade.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Rush Limbaugh comes out of Michael Moore's house, he is putting on his jacket, but the video Lois shows has him coming out of the house with the jacket already on.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Lois Griffin: I can't believe it! I have a true story, and FOX news doesn't want me to air it because it implicates Rush Limbaugh!
      Brain Griffin: See? That's what I've been saying! FOX news has a conservative bias, and they don't want you reporting any stories coming out that will embarrass Rush Limbaugh!
      Lois: But you didn't want me to report the story when it was going to embarrass Michael Moore!
      Brian: Okay; I'm biased to. But the difference with me is that I'm willing to admit it.

    • Lois: I'm glad everything's back to normal. I guess I just wasn't cut out to be a news reporter.
      Peter: Yeah, how did you lose your job anyway, Lois?
      Lois: Ah, I don't know, Peter. Do you really care? Does anyone really care?
      Peter: I guess you're right. The story's over, everything's back to normal 'til next week, so who gives a damn? Anyone got anything funny left to say? Stewie? Brian? Meg? Chris? No? Alright then. (to the camera) See you next week, folks!

    • Fox Exec: Well hi there Brian!
      Brian: How's it going, Adolf.
      Fox Exec: I'll have you know my grandparents died in the Holocaust! (Brian stares) Ahahaha, no, I'm just joking. They were there, though.

    • Meg: Mom, have you ever felt... not so fresh... down there?
      Lois: No. There must be something wrong with you.
      Meg: Really?
      Lois: Yeah. All the women I know never had that kind of problem.

    • Joe: Oh, she's just so smokin' hot! God, I would do things to her that... she would probably laugh at. You bitch!

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (3)

    • The Wonder Years

      At the end of the episode, a voice over by Daniel Stern is a nod to the one used in The Wonder Years, which results in Fred Savage crying out "I don't need you anymore!"

    • Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

      When Lois runs home after getting the job at Fox News, it alludes to both Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and the Family Guy episode "Wasted Talent".
