    This episode was laugh-out-loud hilarious- hate me if you like. The reason why this show is even remotely watchable is, of course, Cleveland Brown Jr... sadly the elder Cleveland left his laugh-value back in Quahog... They just keep trying to make Cleveland into Peter, completely forgetting that the reason he was a good character in Family Guy is because he was nothing like Peter!... Thankfully, Junior, on the other hand, functions as his own character with his own humor. While this episode was very similar to an episode of Family Guy in which Peter serves as Chris's wingman, "Brotherly Love" had quite a few worthwhile gags and very few cutaway jokes. For instance, the "Kenny West" character was really inspired and a great cameo... Also Federline Jones "Fireman Killer" album ought to go platinum. But by far the best moment in the episode is Juniors sad attempt to win over a girl with his sensitive side, pathetically spouting, "I even kiss my dad on the lips sometimes." Classic. Not as funny as his Funeral Suit dance-routine in another ep. but definitely some good stuff.moreless

    I decided against watching this show after the horrendous pilot, but it is a Seth MacFarlane animated comedy after all, and I have some free time, so I checked it out.



    It was pretty funny. Not something that I am going to watch on a consistent basis, but a clever modern update of the 70's/80's black family comedies.



    Cleveland is clearly just acting like Peter, and Rallo like Stewie, but those are two pretty good characters to emulate if you had to.



    And bonus, Kanye West's rap was not terrible, a true rarity today.



    I would definitely recommend watching this episode if you get the chance.moreless
