    Curious if West/Carl/Mort/Shemus being sort of a rival/2nd guys will be used in future episodes, might be kinda cool if they build a dynamic between them.

    Standard plots and jokes, alright. 3/5.
    Just because I'm stupider than them, they think they're smarter than me!

    The Stewie subplot went nowhere and the Quagmire thing was done a lot better as a subplot when he got hooked on internet porn. A laugh-free episode.

    I actually really liked that episode! Both plots were fun and the song was great!

    Merry Christmas!

    What a 180 the guys did to Tinder. Was that more for Quagmire's benefit than anything else?

    Not much of a fan of this episode. I though the Stewie plot was pretty weak and didn't have any laughs. The main plot was better but I still didn't find much to laugh at (and as mentioned above the 'Quagmire gets obsessed with technology sex' been done to better effect. I did like the song and I though it was the strongest part of the episode.

    I felt like turning the episode off after the guy from the lamp store slit his throat.

    This was probably the worst episode of the season since "Carter and Tricia." A lot of the jokes didn't work for me, the Stewie plot went absolutely nowhere, and at this point, I'm starting to get sick of Peter and his friends being in the focus. What is this, five straight episodes? At least the next one sounds interesting.

    1.5/5, I guess.

    I agree with you and I mentioned it before. 5 Peter and his friends episodes in a row and I'm also sick of it. Meg will have at least a subplot in 2 weeks so it is a bit of a relief.

    I liked that Mort/Adam West/Carl/Seamus are sort of another group of friends that get up to wacky BS like Peter and the guys do. Quagmire being out of touch with technology is always one of those weirder aspects of the series. Like, it makes sense since he's supposed to be significantly older than the rest of the cast but that's not something they directly mention a lot so it probably seems a tad more nonsensical. Quagmire become a Gollum-esque shut-in was a predictable route for the plot to take but the scene where they discover the condition he's allowed himself to get in landed pretty damn well with each joke and of course we got a pretty decent musical number about the downsides of Tinder. Stewie's plot was kinda cute in a weird way. Seeing him basking in the additional attention from his class has a certain aspect of truth to it. Know plenty of people, myself included, who benefited from the sympathy angle due to one injury or another in school even though the first thought most kids would have is "Everyone's gonna laugh". Even the later half of the plot where Stewie's neck couldn't support his head, as gross as FG can be with these kinds of things, managed to be more amusing visually than anything else. Ending was a bit lame but also accurate in the sense that if you're stuck with something long enough for the novelty to wear off, children will revert right back to being assholes about it. The resolution of the Quagmire plot was a little bit iffy for me. Obviously they gotta get him back to being his regular scumbag self again but the blatant lying about a traumatic event for the purposes of pity sex is just horrific, y'know? I guess this is why episodes about Quagmire walk a very fine line with his sex crazed antics because ultimately when you actually linger on his whole process it becomes a lot more disturbing than when it's just a passing gag. Seth said it himself back when The Cleveland Show became a thing, you couldn't do a Quagmire show no matter how much people might think they want it, nobody really wants to watch a sitcom about a rapist.

    Good gags:
    Stewie and Lois singing in the car
    Carl responding when Peter yelled out "ARCHERS!"
    Porsche Cayenne cutaway
    Cell phone Jesus
    Queen Elizabeth's hair
    "The way he's crouching, there's a testy peeking out"
    "I don't have any friends! Only sex people from the phone!"
    Peter's "Oh for God's sake" when the couch cushion got stuck to his ass
    "You're gonna have a baby in your butt, man".
    Beach cutaway
    Jennifer's Body
    Quagmire's shoulder angel/devil
    The guys using the hooker as a goalie

    Bad gags:
    Joe's sister
    The auction scene
    That lamp store thing
    Quagmire's Tinder hook-up montage (That shit just got progressively more gross)

    After a string of meh to total dogshit episodes, this was a pretty big improvement. 4/5
