  • Underrated

    Peter's mom gets a divorce. Peter feels abandoned until he sees a father figure in his mom's new boyfriend, Tom Tucker. Meanwhile, Brian gets his own NPR style show on the radio. Another episode where the critics might hate it. It is very underrated and the average score is much lower than the other episodes. There are some dragged parts such as the weenie and the butt...ugh, that was a time filler. I'm guessing most of Brian and Stewie's plot was pretty lame expect for at least 3 parts. The main plot was much funnier and I didn't got bored in any parts. Funniest cutaway was where Peter watching the ring and he reacted to it. Funny parts in the main plot were Quagmire's appearances (crashing to signs, his reaction to Thelma), Chris bothering Peter, Tom Tucker acting like a father figure to Peter (funniest one was when he spanked Peter), etc. Overall a great episode with a weak subplot. 8.5/10
