    R&R Family Guy: Spies Reminiscent of Us

    Spies Dan Aykroyd and Chevy Chase move into Cleveland's old house, while Brian and Stewie wind up in Russia following them.

    R&R here!

    The first half I was telling myself

    "Wow this is pretty good"

    second half I was

    "Wow this a let down"

    Akroyd and Chevy Chase to do nothing, they might as well do just have Stewie and Brian do it all on their own and it would have been the same

    Peter quest for humour just became handi-quack all over again

    I'll give it a 3/5 just because Brian & Stewie were kind enough to escort the old men about the show for 15 minutes.

    2/5. Aykroyd and Chase contributed absolutely no humor. Russian cutaway (itself a Simpsons ripoff) and the improv rehearsal were good for a laugh.

    Umm...yeah.

    The Cleveland Show's episode kicked this FG episode's ass but 100 miles. I'll admit while not completely disasterous, it still managed to suck. The funniest part was the Improvisation act and the final part with Cleveland.

    2.5/5 Enjoyed the last two a lot better.

    Funny how CS can be so much better than FG and still get more hate....

    Did I just hear you say The Cleveland show is better than Family Guy? The Cleveland show is complete shit, if anything it trys to hard to be like Family Guy. It's unoriginal, and I find myself laughing at the fact that its a pathetic piece of crap thats an escuse for tv. It's a half an hour of hell...

    Anyway, I would give this episode a 3/5, it had an ok plot, but not enough jokes. The improv thing was pretty funny though.

    The fact that people could say that these new FG episodes are actually good baffles me. Family Goy and Multiverse were pretty good but this episode sucked so much balls people seem to be delusional to how much balls it actually sucked.

    Improv plot was the only funny one.

    CS was packed with better humor despite being a Black FG incarnate.

    IDK, maybe its just my tastes...

    Um.....wow! I really don't know what to say about this episode.......I didn't hate it but I didn't really like it either....to be honest the whole thing seemed really like an incredibly random improv.

    I enjoyed Stewie in a blank cutaway and Cleveland's little appearence at the end but to quote Quagmire "Ok, this is not something that should ever have been attempted. Thank you very much, Goodnight everybody!"

    Room for Improv-ment, 2/5. (Way to break the 5/5 flow from The Simpsons and Cleveland, FG. Hopefully American Dad will be able to do better than you)

    Much better than last week's. The show is always at it's best when Stewie and Brian play the lead, and Peter is a B-story. Also, there were very few cutaway gags in this, and even though they've done it a few times now, I crack up whenever they make fun of themselves for doing them.

    I'm actually glad that Dan Akroyd and Chevy Chase didn't add much humor to the episode. I hate when a celebrity guest stars on a show, only for it to become all about them and selling themselves, the way The Simpsons almost always does it.

    4/5 being a little generous. But it was still pretty good either way.

    Not as funny as "I'm getting fed up with this orgasm", but still cracked me up. Quality episode, I think FG is finally improving. It's like the Oj episode was rock bottom, and they've beenimproving ever since.

    I generally criticize "Family Guy" for laziness, but this one kinda took the cake when it came to that. Aykroyd and Chase's characters didn't feel too compelling, and were carbon cutouts from the movie that they came from (and was also spoofing).

    Im honestly surprised nobody is bashing it for basically taking the movie Spies Like Us and using it for material. Laziest shit ever? I dont know. I didnt see it but between the episode title, the guest stars, and the one scene I happened to catch while flipping through these weird Hawaii channels: it looks exactly like what that is.

    Well I must say this the parody is neither funny wheter you saw the movie or not

    if you didn't see it you don't get the setup at all

    if you saw the movie it feel more like a rip-off than anything else

    Spies like us ain't exactly THE movie to you can parody for a whole episode, its not that memorable or that funny, its some movie that got made 20 years ago with a few decent joke here and there.

    I mean they barely justify why the hell Stewie and Brian got to become spies

    They didn't even got the scene where Dan Akroyd calculate how much time there left before the end of the world and tell people they are free to do whatever they want for 32 minutes (my favourite)

    A weak ep in my book. Peter's John Wayne impression was pretty unfunny the first time (it's been done by so many so often before) and repeating it a further three times was excruciating, though throwing a John Wayne Gacy reference in there was kind of funny in a twisted way. Too many jokes were dragged out and the parody was wasted on me as I've never seen "Spies Like Us", so definitely not one of my favourites.
