Peter befriends a Muslim. The most basic and therefore boring story lines from this are: a) the new friend is a terrorist, or b) he is not a terrorist, but everyone thinks he is.
And whaddaya know, MacFarlane&Co. chose to go with one of these boring choices.
Why didn't they do what they did best, way back in seasons 1-7, and come up with a whacky and unexpected development?
The fact that they aren't even trying anymore is really annoying.
