  • wow that is really horrible

    ok i,m going to redo my review... this was one of the worst episodes i've ever seen and it only got a 7.1 when i wrote about it because i am impatient. COME ON ALREADY. please make an episode that is at least a 6!!! this 5 and below rating crap is pissing me off and I'm not mad at all of the people who reviewed it, i am mad at Seth McFarlane for creating an awful show that should be cancelled. Seth needs to think more like the people for the Simpsons because The Simpsons is better then all 3 of Seth McFarlanes shows COMBINED! I still love watching Family Guy, Cleveland Show, and American Dad but he needs to get more ideas. The Simpsons are already on there 21st season and past there 450 episode and they are getting 8+, and 7 rarely.moreless
  • Finally! An episode of The Cleveland Show that's worth remembering. (Spoiler Alert!)

    This episode was simply, in my opinion, the best episode of The Cleveland Show since the Pilot episode. From Cleveland farting on the stage while singing "Never Knew Love Like This Before" with his wife Donna to the Family Guy crossover, this episode was loaded with funny moments that previous episodes lacked. For once, the focus was not on Cleveland Jr., but on Cleveland and Donna, which is the way it should be. I do wish, however, that Rallo could play bigger roles on the show; I'm surprised that the writers have not used him much in the show considering that Rallo is a very dynamic character. Overall, a great episode and one I would definitely see again.moreless
  • I'm sick of Seth killing off all these recurring characters! How many has it been over the years? Including Joe's oldest son and now Lorretta? Why? She could've put in some appearances. Wanting to get Cleveland and his son back, fighting with Donna!moreless

    Now I'll never be able to watch Family Guy the same again! Especially the old eps. And The Cleveland Show I'm almost down watching! It's not as funny as all the hype! The Simpsons don't kill off so many recurring characters as Family guy does! Is Seth running out of ideas or something? Is that all he can come up with? Killing off people in gory ways? I'm sick of Seth's sick humor anyway! All 3 of his shows need to call it quits! Make room for some real sitcoms! Bring FOX back to the glory days of the 90s when Martin and Living Single were on! There's just nothing on TV anymore!moreless
  • Funny and Touching at the Same Time.

    So far, this is the best episode of The Cleveland Show that they ever had in my humble opinion. In spite of his first wife, Loretta being a miserable, selfish, shrewish, witch, Cleveland became all chocked up when he found out that she died. This was mainly because he suffered from guilt that it wasn't him who expired instead of her. I guess that it shows that in the back of his mind, Cleveland still loves her and misses her in spite of all the misery she gave him. All I can say is rest in peace, Loretta. I gice this show a perfect 10.moreless
