    I read on the episode list for this season that Meg has an episode called Better Off Meg. Does anybody know of anymore episodes with Meg as the lead coming up?

    12/15 - Christmas is Coming
    When Meg takes Stewie to the mall to meet Santa, she has a surprising response. Meanwhile, Stewie is entirely scarred from the same experience and Brian tries to help him process it.
    Is this a retcon of "Road to the North Pole"? This time, Meg takes Stewie to see Santa at the mall

    What's wrong with puns (Cat Fight, Heart Burn)?

    And I assume you don't recognize the reference in "Christmas is Coming" (i.e. "Winter is Coming" from Game of Thrones)?
    I also have a feeling "Peter & Lois' Wedding" is a reference to "Tony & Tina's Wedding," although to be fair, not many people have heard of that one.

    I have a feeling "Bri-Da" is referencing something other than a Brian/Ida 'ship name, but I can't think of it. Then again, it could be a "reference" to 'ship names in general, or maybe a shoutout to some portion of the fanbase that wanted to see them together for some reason.

    You mean episodes like Trump Guy or Christmas Guy? Yeah those are really annoying how they keep doing that.

    Well, as I already mentioned by bumping back up the R&R for You Can't Handle the Booth!, the commentary free version of the episode they talk over is included on the Season 17 DVD as a bonus feature.

    Connie's Celica (1/5/20)
    When Lois gets a job as the music teacher at Chris and Meg's school, a mean student, Connie, decides to make Lois the target of her antics
    It really speaks volumes for the current state of the show that this is pretty much their most original idea they've had in ages, and mostly for how it'll seem to focus on a character that hasn't really had any in god knows how long!

    I'm really hoping that Connie gets her comeuppance from Lois in this episode. It would be nice to see a return of badass Lois from the early seasons

    And this is why FG is better with recurring characters than The Fairly OddParents. Sure they often have a particular character not appear in a very long time (Kevin, Connie, Cleveland, etc.), but when the writers do remember their existence, that's where I respect them more than Butch Hartman.

    I do find it interesting we're ending the decade with a Meg episode. Compare to the 2000s where we only had one holiday episode and the show wasn't in high definition yet.
    Simpsons: 4 > 6 = 7 > 5 > 3 > 8 > 2 > 14 > 15 > 13 = 10 > 9 > 16 > 20 > 1 > 24 = 21 > 26 > 22 = 25 > 23 > 19 = 27 > 18 = 28 > 12 > 11 > 17 = 29

    Family Guy: 4 > 3 > 2 > 1 > 5 = 6 > 15 > 16 > 10 > 14 > > 7 = 11 = 9 > 8 > 12 = 13

    American Dad: 4 > 3 > 2 > 1 > 6 > 5 > 8 > 9 > 7 = 11 > 10 > 13 (so far) > 12

    The Cleveland Show: 2 > 1 > 4 > 3

    Futurama: 5 > 4 = 1 > 2 = 3 > 7 > 6

    Rick and Morty: 2 > 1 > 3

    Still don't have the Season 17 DVD yet, but here are the other bonus features for it for anyone that cares:

    * Deleted scenes (as usual)
    * Actual commentary for You Can't Handle the Booth!
    * Compilation of cutaway gags.

    Not really sure which is the best place to post this but yesterday I got a hold of the Season 17 DVD set and just got done watching New Phone, Who Dis? which is the "Commentary" free version of the episode that they talk over during You Can't Handle the Booth!

    So how is the episode compared to how it aired on TV? Eh, it's at least better than that as well as some of the other season's lesser episodes like both of the two-parters as well as Con Heiress, but still on-par with most of the mediocrity we got throughout last year. Still, they should've just aired the episode this way since the way it actually did was pretty awful.

    Also, I'll go on record to say that Peter singing Halfway Down the Stairs ranks up there with the Conway Twitty gag from The Juice is Loose as one of the show's most dragged out Overly Long Gags. Not helped is how the song is repeated later, albeit slightly condensed.

    I know they won't do this, but it would be cool if they aired the commentary-free "New Phone, Who Dis?" on Fox and framed it as a new episode. They could air it during a week where there's nothing scheduled for season 18.

    Or maybe they could make it an FXX or Freeform premiere. Like how "When You Wish Upon a Weinstein" aired for the first time on Adult Swim.
