    I thought this episode was perfect. It was hilarious as well. The plot involves Stewie and Brian go back in time to stop Bertram from killing Leonardo da Vinci. It felt like a road to episode because it felt very adventurous. One of season 9's best, next to Halloween on Spooner Street. A lot of funny parts including Stewie going back in time to prevent some stuffs (the funniest had to be when he did the Peanut Butter Jelly Time gag), Stewie finding out he had an Italian ancestor which explains his love for Spaghetto and Brian finds it gross, and a few others. Overall, a perfect episode. Hopefully more awesome episodes and less awful episodes.l 10/10moreless
  • The beginning was good only.

    After Lois leaves, Stewie tell Brian about wanted to order an item from a magazine. Brian insults Stewie by saying he would order the guy on the cover of the magazine. Stewie comes up with a terrible return insult, that causes Brian and Chris to mock him. Stewie plans to go back in time to top his insult Brian, which he does and succeeds. Stewie plans to go back in time to embarrass Brian again. He travels back to "The Courtship of Stewie's Father", when Brian is going to sing, "Peanut Butter Jelly Time", but Stewie steals his banana suit and sings to Peter, which cheers him up. Stewie later plans to mess with his former date with a Victoria's Secret model, which Brian finds out about and plans to stop. Brian and Stewie begin to fight for control over the machine, but go back in time, to before the universe's existence. Stewie tells Brian that he can overload his Return Pad which would cause an explosion that would send them to the future. Stewie is reluctant, but Brian talks him into it by saying he would laugh at a joke that he would never tell to Stewie, unless he tried. Stewie did it and went back to the future. After research, Stewie finds out that his explosion was the Big Bang and that he created the universe. Stewie goes to a market, where a terrorist works, that sells him plutonium. Bertram sneaks into Stewie's house, causing Stewie to wake up. He distracts Stewie by giving him a play lawnmower. Bertram goes back in time, when Brian goes into Stewie's room. The universe starts to rip. Brian and Stewie go back in time to stop Bertram. They go back in time to the late 1400s or the early 1500s, to Venice Italy. Stewie finds out that Leonardo da Vinci is his ancestor. Once Bertram arrives, he throws a knife at Leonardo, causing Stewie to jump in front of it with a palette blocking it. They end of stealing his early flight inventions and fight in midair. Stewie ends of deflecting a missile and blowing Bertram's glider apart. Bertram grabs a crossbow and kills Leonardo da Vinci, causing Stewie to fight Bertram. Bertram knocks Stewie down, but he grabs the crossbow and shoots Bertram in the chest and the head, killing him. Stewie decides that if he injects his DNA into Leonardo's girlfriend, he can save the world. He sends Brian to the future, where a priest comes to deliver Brian a letter written by Stewie, under the alias Leonardo da Vinci. Stewie cryogenically froze himself under their basement. Brian then dug Stewie up, and Stewie attempts to trick Brian into kissing him, which backfires when Brian offers to get Meg. As a gift, Stewie gives Brian a candle from that time period which goes unappreciated.

  • great

    i think i would've liked the episode more if it focused on stewie embarrassing brian. the peanut butter jelly thing was funny, as was him going back in time and making that 'stolem boyfriend' line. i know the plot would've been kind of boring if they just relied on stewie embarrassing brian at any moment he could, but i dunno. the plot of this one didn't do much for me. aside from those two things i listed i did not laugh at many things (the only time i remember laughing was da vinci laughing and stewie saying 'that's brand new to him). i'll give it a 3/5 because i did laugh sometimes, and the plot was at least original, at least for family guy's standardsmoreless
  • Wow!!! A Family Guy episode that is more exciting than it is funny

    I thought that this was an interesting and very exciting episode of "Family Guy". This episode was more exciting than it was funny. I thought the very beginning was funny when Stewie went back in time to tell that he should marry his ex-boyfriend or something like that and Chris says "Ha, he got you". I also loved the see peanut butter jelly time joke again except this time it was Stewie. That peanut butter jelly time joke will always make me laugh very hard. I thought Brian and Stewie being outside of the universe was very funny especially when they both saw "The Cleveland Show" promo (which by the way had me fooled) and when Brian and Stewie were those music beat things. It was also funny when Stewie's ancestor Leonardo da Vinci looked like him. It was also hilarious when Stewie found out that he was Italian and then he says stuff like "No wonder I'm obsessed with my spagetti-O's" or something like that and then Brian says "Ewwww". I thought it was very action-packed when Stewie and Bertrum were on those flying inventions and trying to fight each other. The fight scene between Stewie and Bertrum was very epic. The very ending was also hilarious when Stewie said that the only way he will wake up was if he got a kiss and when he gave Brian a candle and Brian complains that he could have gotten something more valuable. Overall, a funny BUT mostly exciting episode of "Family Guy". 10/10moreless
