    The episode is 12 and the season is 9. This is one of my favorite shows and it keeps the heart pumping and me smiling. There is areas that seem to go to far but their saying what some of us are thinking and we get to see how ignorant we can be. LOL Fav-epi by FAR!

    It was nice to see Death again, and the song was freakin' awesome. Most of the gags were dumb though.

    Parts I liked:

    * The first two logo productions.

    * Peterdisruptingthe movie.

    * Return of Death. Great to see him again.

    * CatDog reference. However, I don't really understand what's Peter saying. (Sorry, I don't understand people when they're drunk.)

    * Peter's life with being drunk.

    * The seagulls part.

    Parts I hated:

    * The logo productions was too long and tedious. I wasted a minute and a half Peter talking during the logo productions.

    * The Mr. Booze song. Super annoying and once again, tedious (long andirritatingsong, btw)

    * Boring in some scenes

    Overall score: 6/10 (Fair, but tedious)moreless
  • Boring and bad...

    Honestly, this is just tiring. Don't get me wrong, I love family guy, but seriously, this is just getting old. A drunk peter episode, we already had an okay one like that with the kidney, but not only did they not even have a reasonable plot, they didn't have a side story either. This episode was half minded, and mediocre. I can pick ANY episode and it would have been ten times better. Don't get me started on the song that lasted five minutes... It didn't even have a point. I don't want to be hating, but Family Guy needs to pick this up.moreless

    Peter and Brian are forced to attend AA meetings, and neither wants to. They eventually get everyone at the meetings drunk, and Peter gets in an accident, where he is visited by Death, who teaches him how much he should drink.



    It was alright. The only parts I actually liked were the Cat-Dog reference, and Peter going off on Stewie (Laughing Cry, Effing cry, what's the difference). The rest was kind of boring. The opening with the actor's name in the theater was REALLY similar to a scene in the Simpsons like 9 years ago. And the ending was kind of lame. So overall my final grade for this episode is in the low "C", maybe high "D" range. Not great but not absolutely terrible eithermoreless

    • Peter: Alright family, lineup for cigar burns!

    • Sober Peter: Okay family, it's time for a "Family H." The 'H' can stand for a Hug, a High Five or a Handshake. (Lois approaches and hugs Peter) Oh, starting off with a hug, that's good. (Stewie approaches and hugs Peter) and another hug, we're on a roll. (Chris approaches) Are we going for another hug? Make it three for three? Oh nope, it's a High Five and that's alright (high fives Chris, Meg approaches and hugs him) And we're back to hugs. Hugs are good it looks like we're going to win with them today... (Brian approaches and shakes Peter's hand) And we're topping it off with a handshake.
      Peter: Who the hell is that with my family?
      Death: That's you if you'd never touched alcohol.

    • Tom Tucker: This man wants to testify!
      Peter: Very well, my brother. Let us lead him on the path of righteousness!
      Tom Tucker: This poor gentleman used to speak in long, eloquent sentences. But after years of drinking, he can only speak in short, choppy utterances. Why, at one time, if you asked him who his favorite musicians were, he'd say "Leonard Bernstein, Johan Sebastian Bach, and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart". But thanks to that old devil hooch, it's all changed. Who's your favorite musician, Ollie?
      Ollie Williams: Cher!
      Tom Tucker: He doesn't even like Cher.

      When Peter is driving home, he turns on the radio to the Lullaby Channel, and the reprise of Hushabye Mountain starts playing the instant he turns on the radio.
