  • What Gives!

    6.0
    Peter wrecks television again, and his friends and neighbors don't move on. They should have went to the movies or go outside? But, Seth McFarlane didn't listen. He made it happen in episode two of season one. Good ending, rest of show, average.
  • By far, the best episode of the season!

    Here are some of the best highlights of this episode:

    - Cutaway of Peter and Lois leaving Meg at the fire station

    - Joe insulting the firefighters

    - Stewie acting like Peter Griffin "These pants have stool in

    - Sad music playing after the Griffins become a Nielsen family

    - Changes Peter made to television (The Mad Men/Star Wars thing was hilarious!)

    - Peter beating Homer Simpson to the "ruined television" plot line (The Simpsons haven't done that, haven't they?)

    - Peter giving ideas to people on how to make television better (Six Law & Orders XD)

    - The ending

    So this is by far, one of the best episodes of Family Guy.moreless

    Wow, I haven't laughed this much in such a long time for Family Guy! This one was full of laughs! Peter controlling TV ratings was epic! SIX LAW & ORDERS <333 + KREEPING UP ON THE KARDASHIANS <333



    It was so funny! I had lots of great laughs - including dropping Meg off at the fire department station :P



    If you want t o have a good laugh, I highly recommend this oen!moreless

    i gotta say. i figured an episode like this would happen sooner or later. ive always wanted to see how peter would change tv. and this episode did great at presenting it to us. nice filler in the start with the firehouse and it gets right on, peter makes changes to all the shows making tv unwatchable..wich i guess is a bad thing cause people may actually not be lazy and go outside ore..no? ok. peter than saves tv (before the simpsons) and gets tv back. the "6 law and orders" were a great joke. but law and order svu is my all time favorite, always. stil great episode seth!moreless
  • 6 LAW AND ORDERS

    7.0
    The peisode started off really poorly--in fact the first half was boring and stupid. Thsi was an outside script submission (not staff) since the quality of the episodes from last season was so poor..I guess they have begun to take on submissions. The episode did improve and I really enjoyed the scenes at the end where peter brings Tv back to the way it is. Telling Dick Wolf to "amke 6 Law and Order shows but make them ALL THE SAME" (lol)...he should have also asked for Six CSI shows all the same. Should have been better but still better than last week.moreless
