Episode Summary


Lois cooks a big Thanksgiving meal and invites the whole crew over for dinner, and Joe is shocked when his formerly M.I.A. son, Kevin Swanson, returns from Iraq.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Meh...

    Some funny humor at times, but that episode is essentially focused on a political view the writers desperately try to shove down our throats...

    The idea of a Thanksgiving gathering all the people close to the Griffins (including Lois' sister who married Adam West and Quagmire's transgender father), as well as the unexpected return of a supposedly dead Kevin Swanson were nice touches. Too bad this all turned into a giant argument on war afterwards.

    I enjoyed the crab gag, seeing all the characters together and some of the lines spoken during the argument on war (the ones that have nothing to do with it that is).moreless
  • epico a dir poco.

    Uno degli episodi pi spettacolari di tutti i tempi nella storia dei Griffin.
  • family guy thanksgiving

    this was a good episode not as good as last weeks but pretty good kevin returns to quohog it was great seeing him in the series again i found it funny when chris said if you think i'm gonna masterbate after this tonight then you are so right and when brian predicted was kevin was gonna say in his poem so he wouldn't read it that was pretty funny good but not as good as last weeksmoreless
  • This is the first time family Guy has ever had a Thanksgiving episode. It was very good and it was nice to see characters giving their opinions but I wished that it wasn't so one sided. If there had been two sides talking, it would have been better.moreless

    Joes' son comes home after he was assumed dead. Kevin said that he faked his death to get out because he doesn't believe in the war. Joe called him a traitor and should go to jail. Kevin helps Joe to remember a situation when Joe helped a homeless man keep the food to feed his family. Having a change of heart, Joe forgives Kevin.

    This was entertaining. It was nice to see Kevin back and how his family and friends would react as he explained why he was M.I.A. I'm glad some characters had their opinions on why Kevin left and there was some heart in it.

    What I didn't like was:

    1. Brian insulting Ida after Ida gave an honest opinion. I thought Quagmire was going to give him a second beating.

    2. Lois telling Ida to use the yard. Hey Seth!! You said you were for gays and transgender people. It doesn't look like it.

    3. Peter telling tasteless jokes when Kevin was trying to be serious and throwing the football at Chris drunk.

    4. Kevin calling Mega skank. I thought those 2 would get back together and Meg was being nice. Thanks alot Seth!!

    Overall, it was very good. It proves you can be serious without violence like Quagmires' sister episode. There should be more like this.moreless
