There have been worse episodes out there, that's for sure, but let's be honest, this is still not that great an era of Family Guy. I laughed at a few gags, but the show seems to have found its voice and that is Peter being a child week after week. If that amuses you, chances are you love it, but I want more from this show.
For a season premiere it was not that bad, but some of the jokes like mocking 80's montages, an unnecessary shot at Anna Paquin and mocking homelessness, it just seemed out of place.
Okay, but let's not get too excited. This show will be back to terrible next week.
