    When it comes to writing and TV shows there's always that one time where you know it jumps the shark beyond prevail. It could be a bad season, or a slew of bad episodes in a row, however, this episode did something so abysmal it put Family Guy beyond repair. In order to make it brief I'll get to the elephant in the room first. This episode is about being trapped in a house with no TV, and it's as boring as being trapped in a house with no TV, yeah it's that boring. You see the mushroom scene Brian has is very pointless, and what the family does during the hurricane is just not funny. But then we get to the real stinker, Meg has finally had enough with the abuse she puts up with and calls her family out on what they do to her and they all break down. After she talks to Brian, Meg asks him if she's like a lightning rod for the family to release their tension on. THAT'S RIGHT PEOPLE! WE GET THE ALL TIME CLICHE TROPE KNOWN AS STATUS QUO IS GOD! However, that's not the worst part of this trope, the bad part about using this trope in this episode is that THE MORAL OF THIS EPISODE IS, STAY IN AN ABUSIVE RELATIONSHIP FOR THE BENEFIT OF THE ABUSER! NOT FUNNY SETH! NOT FUNNY! Whenever Family guy tackles abuse, they do it horribly, and this episode is a prime example why.moreless

    I liked this episode. It was great when Meg lashed out at her family. I also enjoyed Brian's hallucinations. There were also several funny parts,
  • Thank God this episode was delayed.

    I was actually glad that it took a while for this episode to air. It was stupid, upsetting, and awful. Kudos to Brian and Stewie and Meg for being the good ones in this episode. Peter and Lois, I swear if they don't quit their crap, the show may get cancelled again. Peter's antagonism continues and won't stop until somebody stops him. Meg should have never apologized. If anything, what she did was right. Thanks to Lois, Francine from American Dad is becoming her now. Don't be surprised once Francine starts treating Hayley like crap, similar to Lois treating Meg. Peter and Lois deserves to go to jail or be punished, like an episode ban or two. I'm sorry for this cheesy review, but Peter and Lois pissed me off more than ever before.moreless

    • Stewie: Brian? What are you doing?
      Brian: (With scissors to his ear) I'm gonna cut off my ear to prevent World War 2! (cuts off his ear, both he and Stewie scream in horror until Brian passes out on the bathroom floor)

    • Meg: You are completely selfish and totally irresponsible as a father.
      Peter: All right, I see what's going on here. You're in love with your old man.
      Meg: (scoffs) You have no education, you have no interests. You just do whatever reckless thing you want to do whenever you want to do it without regard for anyone else. Oh, and when you're not terrorizing the community with your impulsive escapades, you're being a total jerk to your family! You shove your daughter's face in your ass and you FART on it!
      Peter: (laughs)
      Meg: God, if someone in the outside world could see the way you treat me, you would be in jail!
      Peter: (laughs again)
      Meg: Oh. (chuckles) Oh, this is amusing to you. Well, see if you find this funny!
      Peter: (grinning) I like where this is going.
      Meg: You're a fat, lazy, abusive blue-collar Irish Catholic dad who drinks way too much and barely makes enough money to support his family! You've lived half your life and you have NOTHING to show for it! Your only arguable accomplishments are your kids! (gestures to herself, Chris and Stewie) And look at us! We're a disaster!
      Stewie: Hey, watch it.
      Meg: (not listening to Stewie) You're a total and complete embarrassment in every possible way! Take a good look at yourself, Peter Griffin! You're a waste of a man!

    • Meg: (to Peter & Lois) Have either of you been listening to me? Do you both have your heads up your asses?
      Chris: Dad did. Look he has crap on his ear.
      Peter: That's unrelated.

    • This episode was originally going to air on May 1, 2011 as part of a three part crossover between Family Guy and Seth MacFarlane's two other shows, American Dad and The Cleveland Show. But these three episodes were soon cancelled due to the devastating tornadoes that ravaged the southeastern United States. They were eventually aired in October 2011.
