    Stewie and Brian get into a fight after he remarks how Brian sucks at jokes. He decides to build a new friend. Meanwhile, we get some thrilling tension when Peter and Lois has to get a new mattress! Will they get one?!

    It's a tad dull at times like the past two episodes, but it's saved by its jokes. Some of the lines, the scene with Carl doing Bob Belcher/Archer, the robots having Asperger (I know it's offensive but it was amusing), and a few others were funny. I'll give this a 7/10.

    Now, to look at the credits. This is written by another new writer, Chris Reagan. He's decent so far. But sadly, the producers credit are almost the same with the exception:
    * Gary Janetti leaving
    * John Viener coming back again as a consulting producer.
    * Kevin Biggins/Travis Bowe/Ted Jessup are promoted to supervising producers; also Lewis Morton is now a co-executive producer
    * Anthony Blasucci and Mike Desilets are now co-producers and the others are promoted to executive story editors/story editors

    I enjoyed Peter drunkenly comparing Family Guy to The Simpsons. A funnier version of basically the same joke at the beginning of Family Guy Viewer Mail #2.

    What do you think they put in the Bug Juice?

    Eh, it was a decent enough episode. Nothing particularly stood out as being all that funny but I can't really recall disliking anything in particular either. The 1950s insane asylum joke was good, I guess. Both plots were just very middle of the road and forgettable.

    I just skimmed through the episode again because I figured there had to be something else worth mentioning about it. The berries gag was terrible, I liked The Simpsons line and I also liked the cutaways featuring Meg being kidnapped and the kids posing as adults. 3/5

    Oh, and I was kinda surprised to see Herbert at the end. Feels like forever since he last made an appearance.

    There were a couple of decent gags, but both plots were boring. Peter and Lois get a new mattress, bring back their old one, then return to the new one again. Who cares? The subplot was equally as, if not more weak than the main plot. Stewie shows Brian his Twitter, jerkass Brian steals his jokes because of course he does, then Stewie builds robot friends. Predictably, they turn on him and for some reason he doesn't think of shutting them down when they become bullies. Brian intervenes, makes some half-assed apology, the robots are shut down, and then it's over. Overall, it had jokes, but they weren't enough to save this trash. 1/5.

    yeah this episode was a big ol bowl of nothin soup (original observation dont Steal). very few gags landed, and both plots were damn pedestrian and brought back elements i hate that i haven't seen rear their ugly head in a while like lois writing about hating peter in the journal or the puke jokes with stewie. nothing in either plot was creatively executed, leading to a real uninspired ep. only thing i laughed at was "who shazams the beatles?"

    This was a great episode. Not only was it hilarious, but Brian's characterization was actually really strong in this episode. The worst thing he does is steal Stewie's jokes from his Twitter feed and that is far from the most detestable thing Brian has ever done. He realizes that what he did was wrong near the end of the episode and I liked how he was genuinely concerned about Stewie and the way those robots were treating him. This episode had many jokes that made me laugh hysterically like the Bob's Burgers/Archer bit, Peter eating berries while testing the new mattress, Lois' Facebook feed and the 1950's insane asylum gag. I also loved the joke where it's revealed that the robots have Aspergers. Really the only thing in this episode I didn't care for too much was when Stewie and one of his robots leaves the theatre which was showing The Monuments Men without seeing anything. While I did think that joke was amusing, I really think it dragged on and it was a poor excuse for filler. Other than that this was a great episode and I'm really enjoying this season so far. 10/10

    Also I've noticed that my ratings for each episode have been in order as the pilot was an 8/10 and the episode before this one was a 9/10. I swear that's unintentional.

    Nice little step-up from last week. It wasn't full of massive laughs or so, but it was consistently chuckleworthy and a moment I loved (the 1950's insane asylum).
    The Stewie plot was funnier. I like how the robots just became crazy bullies and the way Brian helped Stewie get rid of them. I thought the The Monuments Men joke was funny. That movie has received its share of criticism, so it wasn't out of nowhere. It was great to see Herbert too! He's such a hilarious character who has been underused these days. I'm glad they finally found a context where they could have him, since we don't see much of him following Chris anymore ever since Chris Cross.
    The mattress plot was weaker (and had that horrendous joke about Peter having toothpaste up in his nose to go down on Lois) but it had some good moments too. I enjoyed Bruce's appearance, it was surprising to see him in the porn business. Peter's "We steal a lot from the Simpsons" line was brilliantly accurate, as this plot is very similar to one from that show too.
    It's unoriginal in terms of plots, but solid in the humor department. 8/10

    really don't need to criticize a family guy ep for plot reasons, just by jokes. and there was some good stuff in there, like lois on facebook, peter's drunken simpsons line and the ending apperance by herbert which was actually kinda clever. but since this is family guy it's settled with some overtly long jokes (berries) and some unnecessary stuff (aspergers) and a bad plot so... 3/5
