One of the few this season that had a lot of hilarious jokes. Some seem to be taking offense with the storyline - and the boston marathon joke was hard to laugh at considering the recent tragedy there. But the rest of the episode was Family Guy at it's best - the speech about America, the 'just sing la bamba but don't sing bamba' was great too, the sky diving, Harrison Ford, the chameleon, squash and wife leaving town cutaways were excellent and the one Stewie moment was hilarious.
I never write reviews, but this episode felt like a return to some good jokes (and there's nothing wrong with having a muslim suicide bomber - IF you don't act like they're ALL suicide bombers - and enough of their jokes referenced the fact that others aren't and it was just a bad coincidence. Where as... other racial or national stereotypes arent so delicate - they literally do say all British people have bad teeth and act a particular way. I thought they were quite sensitive about this one for obvious reason.
Don't listen to what these overly PC reviewers are saying - check it out, keep an open mind and you might just enjoy it.
i watched the video before they took it down. In the original video, the dad kills people at the boston marathon by driving in a car across the finish line (where one of the bombs was planted). Also notice the library as well. (as in JFK Library fire).
Later in the same episode, the dad (peter) uses a cell phone twice which causes TWO Explosions! In the video, the explosions did not occur at the marathon but rather later in the same video as the marthon. NO COINCIDENCE!
Episode gets pulled because tv(dot)com gets scared. This episode depicts Peter G. winning the Boston marathon by running over the rest of the runners and killing them. In the same episode, he attempts to dial someone, but you hear explosions both times he tries. Hmmm.
This was really racist and offensive episode. That's fine with it wasn;t FUNNY! If you are going to be racist and anti-Muslim at least write some good jokes to support yourt racist dialogue. making tyhe only Muslim friend of Peter an actual terrorist was totally racist. having all his friends tell Peter he is a terrorist PROBABLY was even more racist. the fact he turned out to be part of a terrorist organization was just over the line offensive. Sorry-this one failed because it's been over 10 years since 9-11. This episode was no logner topical, needed or funny. but then again the show just hasn;t been very good in over two is NO worse than the usual Family Guy lately. SAD
a very very bad episode.... I thought the skydiving jokes were great but once it changed to muslims it went down. it was incredibly post 911 stereotypical of muslims and only the racquet ball joke seem to hit the mark... very disappointing
When Peter, Quagmire and Joe need a jolt in their mundane lives, they decide to go skydiving. But after an unfortunate accident, Peter ends up in the hospital, where he befriends Mahmoud, who convinces Peter to convert to Islam. Quagmire and Joe are suspicious of Mahmoud's intentions and try to stop the friendship from progressing. I thought this episode was so awful. The first part of this episode was really good and funny but the other parts were terrible for me. The first part has really funny moments like when Peter landed in a level of Angry Birds. The other parts has no funny moments and cutaway gags weren't funny. Also I hated that Mahmoud and his friends were terrorists. This is the 2nd terrorist episodes of Family Guy. The first was "Back to the Pilot". Family Guy needs to stop making religious and political episodes. This episode could have been better, If Mahmoud wasn't a terrorist and If there was more funny moments. The only good moment was when Brian's thoughts about muslims. Brian was a smart character and wasn't a jerk in this episode. This season started good but It's going down now. Family Guy is still a perfect show for me and It's still one of my favorites but It's not good as old seasons. The next episode is called "12 and a Half Angry Men" and I'm not sure that this episode will be good. I hope the next episodes will be good. So far this episode is the worst season 11 episode and "The Giggity Wife" is better than this one. 2.5/10
This episode was funny in the begining when peter skydived into the eiffel tower in vegas, but the terrorrist bit kinda ruined it for me, it was kinda funny but I didnt really laugh much. Overall I give it a 7
