  • family guy stewie goes for a drive

    9.5
    i thought this was quite a funny episode it had some funny gags like peter breaking his neck to get out of a book club and the mexican fart then later the arabian fart i thought the peter and ryan reynolds storyline was slightly odd but other than that it was funny and the stewie storyline was better i enjoyed that one more especially hearing that herbert won the justin bieber tickets overall funny episode i give it a 9 due to the odd subplot but still pretty good and way better than last weeksmoreless
  • I thought it was a good episode...

    It was a better episode than the other recent ones. The gay relationship between Peter and Ryan Reynolds made me LOL.. Stewie crashing the car was funny. I actually laughed a lot during this episode.. Unlike the previous ones.
  • Great episode, but not as superb as the last episode.

    After going to the doctor,Peter, along with his wife,Lois, begin to return home. As they reach their car in the parking lot, actorRyan Reynoldsdrives by them, and asks for directions. As he leaves, he indicates his enjoyment of Peter's presence. The next day, when Peter exits his home, he notices that Ryan has moved into the house formerly occupied by neighborCleveland Brownacross the street. Peter then asks Ryan what he is doing inQuahog, and he reveals that he is filming for a movie. Excited about the prospect of being neighbors, Peter attends a housewarming party for Ryan later that night. At the party, Ryan begins to tickle Peter, with Ryan requesting Peter to return the favor. Later that week, the two decide to have dinner together. While there, Ryan attempts to kiss Peter, who decides to run out of the restaurant immediately. The next day, Peter approaches Lois and tells her that he believes that Ryan isgay. Lois rejects the idea, causing Peter to visit Ryan and ask if he is attracted to him. Ryan tells Peter that he is not gay, and that he is only attracted to his spirit the way a man is attracted to a woman. Angered by Peter's accusation, Ryan then tells Peter to leave his home. As he leaves, however, Ryan hands him a cell phone so that the two "can stay in touch."

    Meanwhile,Briangoes to pick upStewiefrom day care. On the drive home, Stewie begins listening to the radio, and decides to stay in the car by himself to continue listening. As he begins to sing to the song, he becomes angered, and accidentally hits the stick shift, causing the car to move forward. Thinking he can now drive, Stewie decides to take the car for a drive later that day. Thrilled by the experience, he begins listening to the radio, and learns of a contest to win concert tickets to seeJustin Bieber. Attempting to enter, Stewie uses his cell phone to call the radio station. As he does so, the car begins to spin out of control, and crashes into a lamp post. Stewie then returns the car home, with the entire front of the vehicle completely destroyed. Brian soon discovers the damage, and immediately blames Stewie, who tries to deny his accusation. Brian then tells him that he is going to tell Peter and Lois, to the dismay of Stewie, who begins crying. Afraid of being punished, Stewie decides to run away from home, and leaves a disc for Brian to play and learn about his plans to leave Quahog. Stewie then takes the bus to the airport, but is dropped off at the wrong neighborhood.Consuela, theGriffin family's former maid, finds him, and takes him home with her. Later, Brian is able to find Stewie, and tells him that he did not tell anyone about the incident. As the two attempt to leave Consuela's home, she insists on keeping him, to the chagrin of Stewie who steals a nearby gun, and shoots her in the foot. The two then leave, and return home.

    This episode was great, but not as superb as the last one. It is still better than Lottery Fever andSeashoreSeashell Part. Stewie's plot was so hilarious. I laughed at almost every thing such as when Stewie took Brian's car for a ride, wrecked it, Herbert winning Justin Bieber tickets, Stewie freaking out after Brian found out that he drove his car, Stewie ending up at Consuela's place, referring to George Lopez, and shoot Consuela in the foot. As for Peter's plot, I didn't laugh that much. I only laughed at the part where Peter's fart thing attacked everyone (in a cutaway by the way). Other than that, I though it sucked. It was stupid. Peter thinking Ryan Reynolds was gay is lame and stupid.moreless
  • good

    7.5
    what i liked- herbert winning the justin bieber tickets, ryan reynolds telling peter to never talk to him again, and then giving him a cell phone so they can talk, consuela's appearance, stewie shooting up the people after consuela reveals she wants to keep stewie as her own kid, stewie's video to brian telling him he is leaving (which ran a little longer then i would have liked, but it started off nice), amongst other things.

    decent, i guess. besides last week's, this is probably the best episode of the season thus far, and it only gets a C+/B- or so from me. this season doesn't look so good to me, hopefully there is more humor and more enjoyable plots to be had in future episodes this season. Like i said, C+/B- or so seems rightmoreless
  • Back to the Laughter?

    8.5
    The "Stewie Goes for a Ride" episode was the first funny episode in a year and half. Hopefully we're starting back with the humor instead of the drama that started with the bank vault episode. I think all the funny writers went to Cleveland and American Dad.
