  • Quagmire's rant saved the episode


    "Jerome Is The New Black"

    Grade: C

    Overall, this episode isn't that great and the subplot with Brian trying to make Quagmire like him is actually better than the main one with Peter and Jerome. Originally this episode was a follow-up of the departure of Cleveland from The Cleveland Show, and it was interesting to see that it made Quagmire dislike Brian. When Brian tries to make up for everything by inviting Quagmire for dinner, Quagmire does an epic 2 minute rant on why he hates Brian in a really mean and sarcastic tone, and it had me rolling on the floor laughing because it was so true. Brian really sucks in Family Guy now, he is boring and keeps complaining about things and is too liberal nowadays. I don't know if the writers are aware of the show's decline, but I have to admit that scene was definatly the highlight. Other than that, Jerome Is The New Black is fairly standard, sub-par Family Guy that isn't too funny, but that one scene made up for the episode.
