    Good premise, good first half, but like the Star Wars episodes, too bogged down by show-offy actions scenes in the last act. As always, Family Guy is around to make me laugh, not impress me with animation, which it honestly cannot do no matter how hard it tries.
    Signature.

    I didn't give my review on the episode yet.
    I enjoyed it but not as much as tonights Simpsons episode this time.
    I liked the animation and music.
    No Stewie and Brian dang but I did like Cleaveland joining up with Peter and the gang again.
    Some funny gags such as Cleaveland stabbing Peter in the end.
    Breaking the fourth wall a few times.
    Over all I give it a hmm 3/5.

    I don't know what to think of this episode, really. I liked it, and it sure had it's moments (Bender showing up was unexpected, but I enjoyed his brief appearence anyway), but there was no Stewie and Brian, and that kind of made me loose interest in it, though I did love the Obama monument joke. I believe I'll give this episode a 3/5.


    Cool avatar and sig made by the awesome merzitar!

    I really liked this up until the final act. There were a lot of great jokes and nothing annoying or cringeworthy. I felt like there could have been a better "twist" in the reveal of the source of the joke... we all knew it was going to be something top secret, which is a pretty cliche' twist for Family Guy/Simpsons/South Park, and the action sequence was not all that necessary and didn't add anything to the episode.

    Also, I wanted to know what the joke that sent them on the adventure in the first place was! Unless the joke was that they didn't tell us.

    Overall a 4/5 though.

    This.

    I actually enjoyed this one. I kinda liked the action scenes cause it was a little like South Park, they were making a dumb premise look epic.

    But yeah, it definitely didn't end in the most imaginative way. The premise and the investigation were more interesting than the resolution.

    It was somewhere between a half-tolerable Scully Simpson episode and a South Park episode. Like mixing The Computer Wore Menace Shoes with one of those SP two-parters.

    The gags were pretty decent for the most part. Quagmire's conversations to distract the wives and, especially, the lady in the plane were really funny. Actually that last gag has to be one of the best I've seen in a FG episode in a while. I don't watch too much FG, but still.

    Futurama and Cleveland references were fun too.

    I could give it a 4/5, being generous.

    However this premise would have been more creatively developed in other shows. For some reason I can picture it working really well in the short lived Clerk The Animated Series.

    some good jokes in there but on the whole an average episode. 3-4ish range, cool seeing bender in there.

    I think the most this episode achieved is to highlight how different Cleveland has become since they started writing the spin-off.

    3/5
