3/5 - Not really impressive. It was alright, but I really wasn't laughing that much.

It was the last animated premier of the night and coincidentally was also my least favourite in order of appearance. 3/5
After the horrible end to last season, I wasn't expecting much at all. But I have to say, tonight's episode was surprising. They used the cutaways in moderation, and there were only 2 lame extended jokes. One of which was actually funny because it was realistic (Stewie's "mom. mom. mom." thing).
The Stewie plot was alright, but it was resolved too fast. Peter's plot was hilarious, but mainly because I liked the parody of those cheesey Lifetime Original Movies.
Family Guy seemed to be the only half-way decent show that was on fox tonight. I was pleasently suprised how good it was. Although, it wasn't a classic, it's the best new family guy episode I've seen in months. 4/5
On the better side of newer episodes. The Stewie/Lois storyline was a bit dull though. Although the best joke of the episode came from it (Stewie's beach fantasy with Rupert - just a hysterically funny visual joke).
3/5, maybe a 3.5/5. Peter thinking that he got raped during his prostate exam was pretty funny, and even my dad said that he could relate. The Stewie/Lois subplot was pretty weird, but enjoyable still. I was in hysterics during Stewie's fantasy with Rupert at Hawaii, and I'm still laughing just thinking about it. You know, now that I'm writing this, I could of given it a 4/5. The only thing that really annoyed me was Stewie's endless "Mom! Mom! Mom!" scene. Eh, that's Family Guy for you, I guess.

Didn't love it didn't hate it.
Enjoyed the Stewie Lois bit, related to it as my nephew can be the same with me. The doctor raping subplot was OK, the part in the Cort scene where peter and the judge remembered the stuff was funny, and I like the peg leg sea captain's puns and pictures.
Of course this new series still has the problems the last one had. Characters mostly bitching at each other, repeated gags, and what new episode would be complete without one or two unfunny long drawn out quote on quote "jokes".
Saying that atleast this episode cut down on the cut aways a little and had much more plot, so its a step in the right direction. 3/5
Solid episode, and best one out of the 3 cartoons for the night (War at Home sucks, but I watched it anyway).
Peters plot was funny, really liked when he answered the door with a package taped around his ass. Stewie loving Lois was a nice change as well. 4/5
Well this was one of the best Family Guy episodes in a while. I'm really proud of them for actually having a plot and focusing on it without taking it to rather...strange...places (nickel eating, anyone?). And they finally learned that cutaways were a nice little add-on, not an essential part of the show, it appears. The trial scene was pretty awesome as was the reoccuring Solo (sp?) joke, the only part of Peter thinking he was raped plot that I thought was a bit too far was him at the mirror, that went a bit too far into a rape victim's pain to stay at a point of humor for me. Stewie and Lois's plot was rather entertaining as well, especially the irony of Lois wanting to kill Stewie. Not to mention that brilliant Barbara Bush act break (Who else was expecting Andrea Yates?)
4/5. There was nothing really amazing about it, which is why it didn't get the 5/5.
I like when Stewie was talking to the bear acting like she was Lois and he says : I'd drop her ass!
Also, when the fingers keep showing up at home after peter's doctor appointment

I liked the episode. The Stewie/Lois plot had some potential, it I think it was wasted a little, I didn't care much for Peter's plot, I just didn't think that it was funny

4/5. Very good FG episode, especially for the new ones.
To be honest. I really liked it. A good amount of jokes and such. 4/5.
Ugh. 1/5. I didn't laugh once. Pathetic family guys just getting worse.
"SAY WHAT AGAIN. I dare you, I double dare you, motherfucker".
3/5 -- I love all things Stewie (and my computer's name is Rupert on the network, after Rupert of course), and I enjoyed the Lois/Stewie interaction. The Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom, scene had me rolling my eyes until the end, when Stewie simply said, "Hi!" and then ran off giggling. That had me rolling -- just because it was so true. Little kids always do shit like that.
The best scene of the night was undoubtedly Stewie's Hawaii fantasy with Rupert...that was awesome.
Peter's storyline didn't do anything for me. Some of the jokes were funny, but it was just boring to me overall. Maybe it's because I'm a girl, and I know that the stuff we have to do once a year starting around age 18 is about ten times worse than what Peter was going through -- maybe it just wasn't that funny. I dunno. It was better than some of the episodes that ended last season -- and I'm glad it was more plot-focused rather than flash-back to pop-cultural reference obsessed.

"Will you be donating that million dollars now, Sir?"
"Nooo - I'd still prefer not."
4/5 - I was actually laughing at the parts where Peter thought he was being raped when he had a prostate exam! LOL - hahahahahaha!
Sorry to vote so late, but 3/5. The story was better than the dregs of last year, but that could just be because it was a premiere. It was nice to see Stewie acting like a baby, I haven't seen that in a while. The Peter storyline was just stupid and showed how stupidly obnoxious he could be.
"I was raped!"
Fuck you, sir.
