  • A terrible start to the series.

    This episode was horrible. It was really boring, and painful to watch. The start was mildly entertaining, but after Cleveland left for California , the episode went downhill from there. There were no jokes that I laughed at, and the plot, characters, even the jokes were unoriginal. Rekindling an old high school flame has been done before, and characters are too similar to the ones in Family Guy. They even changed Cleveland Jr.'s character from a young hyperactive kid, to an overweight, slovenly teenager like Chris. The characters are not funny at all, not even the bear. I was just really bored and disappointed throughout the entire episode. Even though I had low expectations of the show from the start, I wanted more out of this episode. I'll watch some more episodes this season, but if they're just relapses of the pilot, I might stop watching the series for good.
