  • German guy falls

    5.0
    When the fight is, or well, when it ends, when the nazi guy falls, is there anyone that knows what the sound clip/song is called?
  • Why was my Tv lagging? Oh wait, it was just old men fighting each other...

    This was such a horrible episode of Family Guy. I didn't laugh once, I didn't even smile. I had the urge to see it anyway because all of those negative reviews on it made me curious to watch it to see if it was actually that bad but i guess the negative reviews were right! This was definitely a waste of an episode and for the 4th time, Peter was wasted from all the beer he had as well. Why is Seth MacFarlane doing the same kind of thing with Peter over and over again? Does he actually think it would be that funny? What about the Simpsons? For the 22nd season of The Simpsons, they were in a few bumpy episodes but they came back up after a while. If Seth keeps this up with Family Guy, they might seem to be cancelled before The Simpsons.moreless
  • Really awful...

    1.5
    I wasabsolutelydisappointed in this episode. I was about to gave this a 5.5. but I changed my mind. The stupid, long, pathetic, abysmal, dreadful, boring, and tedious wasted my ****ing time!!!!!! It wasn't even funny!!:/ :/ What a waste of time!!!!!! Besides that pathetic,dreadful, and lame fight the rest of the episode was boring as well. I only gave this an 1.5 because of Quagmire's cameo and Peter making areferenceto Jamie Kennedy were hilarious. The rest...just really darn unwatchable. Worst of season 9...possibly the worst of Family Guy as well. 1.5/10 Thanks a lot long fight scene!!!!moreless
  • Well... it's better than last Sunday's new Family Guy "Friends of Peter G".

    8.0
    Okay, I don't blame you people if you hate this episode but in my opinion, it's great. I thought the plot for this episode could have been better. I thought it was funny when Peter asked Herbert "Are you Jaime Kennedy?", When Chris asked Peter what its his birthday and Peter said "oh crap" and then Chris shoots him when he gets confused who to shoot. When Peter called Chris an idiot and then Chris said "Well.. learn my birthday you beep", the beep blocked the language by the way. Quagmire's cameo appearance was funny when he woke up from Peter and Chris' music and then he said "Where's the white noise machine?" and then he puts it on and goes back to sleep, and at the end of this episode when Meg comes to Peter and says "Dad, Mr. Herbert called me thunderthighs" and then Peter said "oh, you did remember". The cutaway with the prostitution was also hilarious. I didn't like it when Peter and Chris made fun of Meg as she is walking by instead of asking her help because Peter and Chris were held hostage at that Nazi elder's house. Herbert's fight against that Nazi elder (who's name I can't remember) was slow and it took a long time but it was also funny because they took their pills and all that. Herbert defeating that Nazi elder was pretty cool. Overall, this was a great Family Guy episode but Seth MacFarlane, please pick it up on the new episodes. 8/10moreless

  • TRIVIA (3)

    • Chris' birthday is February 8.

    • The song that Franz Gutentag is singing while moving a "Chris" puppet is "Der Kommisar" by Falco.

    • German used in this episode:
      "Gutentag" means "good day", "Schlechtnacht" means "bad night".
      The sign on the right door reads "keine entranz mit platz munchen" which means "no ... with place munich". "Entranz" isn't German.
      The sign on the left door reads "gluck mach nicht enmechwerchtich lieber" which means "luck make not ... rather"; "enmechwerchtich" is gibberish.

      Peter: Chris, we don't even look alike!
      Chris: When's my birthday?
