  • family guy livin on a prayer

    9.5
    yes this episode was a little preachy but i did find some parts of the episode funny like the boy who cried wolf gag and the dracula gag those parts were pretty funny and i did like the ending that was funny but overall an okay episode
  • Completely horrible

    1.0
    Im so repulsed by the fact that this episode was intentionally done for the public to believe that vaccines medication ect.. are all important and life saving for everyone when really they cause more harm. Vaccines are loaded with thimerasol and other dangerous chemicals.... After the parents accepted the child to go through treatment i knew they were going to say he was cured OH YA right cause chemotherapy works that well and fast it kills you more inside!!!!!! Another scam for the public done by the government to make us believe that these treatments and vaccines are all important and life saving to make us go through it, screw you!!moreless
  • Does anyone remember when Family Guy was a comedy, not a platform for Seth MacFarlane's political views?

    1.0
    Absolute garbage. What used to be a wonderfully screwy comedy show is now an unfunny pulpit for Seth MacFarlane to push his political views on the audience. Just die already and let someone funny have some air time.
  • Another religious episode that could have been good but bombed

    Lois takes Stewies' friend to the hospital but the parents don't want to him to have treatment because of their religious beliefs. I'm giving this a higher grade because it's Lois not Brian for a change and I know Brian would have ruined this with his big mouth. I loved it when Chris said that if Brian dies, they would get a dog who get sticks and not preach. The other good parts were the Peterang and the opening which spoofed Little House on the Prairie. Stewie rambling about the Transformers was a waste and Peter dressing as Harry Potter and doing rescue cliches was another filler. Seth is not good at religious episodes and should leave that to South Park. Enough Seth!! Enough!!moreless
  • This isn't South Park

    Why does FG do episodes about religions? It's always PREACHY and UNFUNNY. My review is short because tigerdude22 says it all below. South Park does great episodes on religions, Family Guy does not. Please stop doing them.
