Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Hilarious!

    Loved the gang of Tom Brokaws, Stewie and Brian using the tank to destroy the store, and Brian being pet too hard by the special child at KMart.
  • Meg gets a job at the Superstore but it puts the place out of business

    After Peter uses Meg's money to buy himself a tank, she gets a job at the new Superstore in town. However, the Superstore puts all the shops in town out of business and sucks up the city's power supply. Brian and Stewie team up to save the town from the corporate giant. Not as funny as "Stewie loves Lois" but I'll take credit for the storyline to the episode. Oddly, Meg wasn't active in the last two episodes (SLL...she only spoke once and didn't spoke at all in the previous episode) so this is her first active episode for the season. Meg abuse was minor (Peter leaving Meg, Peter making raspberry noises everything they said Meg) but it was actually funny. I laughed at the first few minutes, majority of the cutaways, Peter buying a tank and Lois' reaction to it, Peter running over Joe, Peter joining the superstore, etc. Most funniest and favorite part was definitely Brian and Stewie saving the city by destroying the superstore. Overall, this episode was perfect....not the best one. 10/10moreless
  • This episode has a death of a funny character.

    After Peter uses Meg's money to buy himself a tank, she gets a job at the new Superstore in town. However, the Superstore puts all the shops in town out of business and sucks up the city's power supply. Brian and Stewie team up to save the town from the corporate giant.

    The episode was good until Paddy was killed off by Stewie and Brian, and I liked how Lois said "MARCHING BALLS" to Peter's tank.

  • Meg gets a job at a SuperStore after Peter uses her car money to buy a tank

    I thought that this was a hilarious episode of "Family Guy". It definitely had a lot of laughs and it was well written. Peter, Joe, Quagmire, and Cleveland roller skating in the beginning of the episode and dancing like it was the 80s was hilarious. The scene with the crazy guy driving a hummer while watching the movie "Madagascar" was hilarious. The cutaway with the toilet having herpes was very funny. Peter buying a tank with Meg's car money was super funny. It was hilarious when Peter got the tank at Cleveland's house and Cleveland falls down with the bathtub. Peter running over Joe's legs with the tank was absolutely hilarious. It was very funny when Peter and the town of Quahog were protesting the SuperStore taking over the businesses and then Peter works at the SuperStore was very funny. It was very funny when Peter would make fart sounds for everytime someone says "Meg". It was very funny when Peter is fooling around at the SuperStore. Brian and Stewie using Peter's tank to destroy the SuperStore was an absolutely hilarious. The very end of the episode was funny as well. Overall, a hilarious episode of "Family Guy". 10/10moreless
  • Still getting the best episodes.

    I loved this episode.It was like the best episode yet.I loved it when Peter kept blowing a raspberry everytime someone said Meg.That scene was funny like when Peter blowed the raspberry very quiet.This episode was the best episode on Family Guy.I also loved it when that dude petted Brian and Brian bit him.That part was kind of funny and it was a good part of the episode.I loved it when Meg gave Sloth a Baby Ruth.That part was not even funny,but it was a good moment anyway.I love this episode.I really love it and it's the best episode of Family Guy.moreless
