Family Guy Review: "Friends of Peter G."

by at . Comments

Welcome back, Death! 

Unfortunately, this character's return was the most interesting part of a Family Guy episode that featured one good song and a valuable lesson for Peter and Brian. Let’s break it down.

A Sermon by Peter

With their drinking hitting new heights, Brian and Peter are sentenced to 30 days of AA meetings. Deciding that the meetings are dull and the people uninteresting, they devise a clever way to make the gatherings more lively: beer.

When Joe comes to investigate, the entire AA gang break into song about the evils of alcohol. This is all for show, of course, and while drunk driving back home, Peter dies in a car accident.

Enter Death. He shows Peter, due to his infinite wisdom and space-time altering skills, that it’s all about moderation. We get to see Peter as a 50s-sitcom dad who looks like he came straight out of a Dilbert cartoon strip. 

Overall, a slower episode, but let's toast to Death with the following Family Guy quotes:

Death: You members of the human race have the power to send a man to the moon and make Justin Long a movie star.
Peter: We did it with Justin Long didn't we? America said no but we kept at it! | permalink
Peter: You know what? I was so drunk, my ghost is drunk. | permalink
Peter: Alcoholics... transform! | permalink
Stewie: She slams us against the monkey bars but none of us have the language skills to call her on it. | permalink
Brian: Uh no... uh I'm going to meet Jenny's cats.
Peter: What are you talking about? You hate cats.
Brian (gritting his teeth): I'm... going... to... meet... her cats... | permalink

i agree - i was shocked to see this episode list as 'NEW' ... i swear we've seen this 'family guy' before. (i am a sucker for a fg-song, so i enjoyed that... but the rest of was just rehashed...) we might be facing the end of the road pretty soon.

It sucked the premise was stupid and at no point did I laugh. I am not one of these film school dropouts who ruthlessly criticizes the show since its renewed popularity, however, how many jokes about drunk driving can you make before it gets stale.
