  • Brian and Stewie join the military; Chris joins a band

    10
    Chris is approached to join the military. Brian goes to the recruiting headquarters to voice his opinion, when Stewie signs himself and Brian up for the military. They pass Boot Camp and are shipped to Iraq, where they try to get honorably discharged by doing anything they can. Meanwhile, Chris decides to join a goth band. Another perfect episode. Season 5 will definitely be a little improvement over season 4. Both of the plots were very funny. I liked the main plot better. Brian/Stewie's plot: laughed at Brian thinking that Stewie got something from the Onion, Stewie shooting the guys (who which the fans were getting tired of...but they'll eventually return in Back to the Woods as ghosts), Stewie signing up Brian, and many more. Funniest was the latter part when Stewie said hell yeah and Brian smacks him as well as when Brian got shot. Chris' plot: Not as funny as the main one, but still has its moments like Chris screaming when the piano landed on him, Mayor West's appearance when he was playing poker with the dogs under the school, the song (which is named after the evil monkey that live in Chris' closet), Chris acting like a goth, and the last part of it. Overall, another funny excellent done episode for Family Guy. 10/10
