    good episode but really weird, especially the final few minutes. it isn't a bad episode it is just a strange episode. it had some good laughs though and the plot was pretty good, i thought, and thus my overall grade for this episode is a B- or so. It was a good but not great episode, me thinksmoreless
  • I was expecting the story line to be difrrent. But all and all goode Epi.

    9.5
    Ok this was a good epi. But I thought it would be funnier if Malclom, Rease, Dewey, and Stevie were stuck in the ride while they were moving the ride. That would have been funny. But the original story line was ok too. I thought it was funny when Malcolm said "Ok. This is like the begining of evrey Horror Movie I've ever seen." I also thought it was funny when Hal had gotten chased out of the Impound lot by the gaurd dogs. But the 2 best scenes were when Francis told Louis all the places the boys could have gone and when Rease said "We come in peace!" to Dewey's freak-friends.moreless

    Stevie, Malcolm and Reese want to go to the local carnival. They make a plan that will get them there. Dewey overhears and they have to take them along. They arrive there just as it is about to close and they sneak onto a horror ride and get stuck. They get out and realize that the fair is closed. A manic security guard chases them and captures Stevie. Dewey and his circus friends help. Lois and Hal spend a romantic evening together, until Stevie's parents come looking for Stevie.



    This episode was pretty good. It was really weird, but it was okay. This episode gets a 9.0!moreless
  • Good episode!

    8.9
    I like this episode really much, Malcolm, Stewie, Reese, and Dewey lied about getting to a sleepover with each other's house, to go to the carnival, which Lois agrees to spent time with Hal. Unfortunately, in the carnival the boys get torture by an evil security guard that seems crazy and wants to get them in order to punish them, but is in the end Dewey's friends that one who help to escape from him. When Abe and Kitty come to the boys' house to see Stewie they discover that they have been tricked and go in search of them.moreless
