Episode Summary


When the Griffins win the lottery, the extravagant lifestyles change the family for the worst, alienating them from their friends, but when they blow through their winnings, they only have their friends to turn to for help.

  • Love it

    Epic opening
  • Divertimento a non finire.

    Una puntata epica a dir in questa puntata ricompare il personaggio di Joyce Kinney,che non si era pi vista dalla met della nona stagione,dove l era una cattiva e subito dopo diventata buona.
  • Waste of Money and Time

    I figured that maybe this premier of Season 10 of Family Guy would be decent since so many said it was great, but once again it seems it was all hype and very little substance. The plot is that after blowing all their savings on the lottery, Peter wins and the Griffins are now rich. So through the whole plot we see Peter and the other members of the family go crazy with money and lose their friends. It isn't until the family realizes how foolish they were acting until they lose their money and end up on the sidewalk. Peter goes back to Joe and Quagmire and tells he learned money can't solve their problems. He asks for their forgiveness and Quagmire writes a check for Peter allowing him to get his house back. Our episode ends with the entire family staring out the windows of their house saying nothing. This premier was such a waste of time and too cliched in every way. For one thing this plot has been done before and nothing new was added to the mix. It's literally Peter and family get selfish, lose friends, then lose everything, and then go back to their normal lifestyles. This is something you see in a Saturday Morning Cartoon, not Family Guy. There were some good moments like Peter shooting the BB Gun, Chris inhaling the glue, and Stewie and that big baby thing, but that was really it. Aside from those things this premier was not only a waste of time, but waste of money as well. I wouldn't really bother with it at all and it seems once more Family Guy has another bad season down the road.

    FINAL SCORE: 2/10moreless
  • An alrightseason 10 premiere.

    It was an okay start of season 10, but a bit disappointing start of season 10. It should has great but a few parts ruined the score. I thought Peter was a huge jerk at Quagmire and Joe. He took the BB gun thing too far and I predicted that Peter would shot Joe in the eye. Ugh! That's painful! I never saw a scene like that before. Plus, beside that, a couple scenes were a waste of time. I didn't like that cutaway that lasted for like almost a minute. The rest of the cutaways were especially Brian's long hair and then Stewie fell off and a couple others. Peter hiring a penis butler was very hilarious. It may be the only part I liked from Peter in the episode. The ending was funny when the family looked outside the window. Overall, an okay season 10 premiere of Family Guy. A huge decline on the last two year's premieres. 6/10moreless
  • oh ... no ...

    To understand the problem of this episode, you have to understand how shows like this work.

    Basically, you have two choices - you can either tell an interesting story, or you can tell an old and predictable story in a funny way.

    The story here - 'get rich, annoy friends, lose friends, blow money, find out friends will forgive you' - is a very old story, so MacFarlane would now have to go with the second option. But he doesn't. Nothing Peter does is really all that funny, and the other characters pretty much don't appear in this episode, which is covered by Lois mentioning each of them in one sentence.

    There is so much potential here. Just imagine - Stewie getting his hand on big money - the possibilities are endless. But no.

    MacFarlane really seems to think that the story itself is interesting enough to carry this episode.
