    Huh, apparently Stan has killed a lot more people since The 42-Year Old Virgin.

    He killed a body double before it, I'm pretty sure, but that's not very mportant.

    Would have been better if Francine had not been swallowing the whole charade, but it was still very fun in my opinion. Especially the b-plot

    It was pretty enjoyable. My personal favorite of the night. Roger for once had semi-decent intentions for once, Francine's approval. 4/5.

    eh pretty boring and mediocre I laughed at Francine flashing her butt and Snott standing in the window and Stan describing sex with Francine but everything else meh...this season has been pretty disappointing to me..not that the episodes are new Simpsons/Family Guy bad but you can see the decline..

    Stan's vivid over-detailed recitations over the phone were excellent!

    4.5/5 This episode was fucking hilarious! I'm only taking away half a point because I thought the whole Cuba Gooding Jr. thing was stupid.

    I thought the Cuba Gooding Jr. parts were hilarious. This episode was pretty good, 4.5/5 from me as well.

    Not really Escape from Pearl Bailey had him for about one line

    This had the best jokes of the season so far! Priceless from start to finish! My favorite scenes were when Roger, Francine, and Steve were at the kitchen table, Francine comforting Roger, and every scene with Steve's friends. Stan's phone conversation and their reaction to it was hilarious!

    Three things surprised me: that Stan is so unhappy and questioning the afterlife, that Francine's smoking is not a one episode thing, and Roger's concern for Hannah to make it home to her sick child. I was disheartened when I found out that Roger wasn't really training for the marathon, but I'm glad he worked hard, EARNED something, and cares about Francine's opinion of him. Perhaps he and Stan would get along better if Stan at least tried to support him, instead of making unnecessary mean comments. I also noticed the absence of Stan, but I must say, I like that more focus is being given to Francine and Hayley. Perhaps he appears less because MacFarlane was busy with TED when this season was recorded?

    Even though the Pearl Bailey episode has Stan for one line, this season still has less of him than season 4 did.

    He meant the season as a whole thus far, not just the episode on its own.

    Good episode, but we have had to many plots involving Francine wanting to help out Rodger.
    Both plots were okay, but this episode was still pretty funny

    4/5

    It was a very obvious story and didn't take any chances plot wise.
    But it was quite funny and enjoyable to watch, as everyone was working in character so well.
    It felt like a very classic episode overall.
    The death of Cuba Gooding Jr. was genius!

    A 4/5.

    The best part of th Cuba Gooding business was when Stan "Sensed a disturbance" while he was eating.

    Pretty good episode for the Season. I saw all of the Roger hiring actors and him cheating from the start very obviously. Liked Francine flashing Snot, Stan's detailed description of Francine and life, Roger caring about what Francine thinks to get his award, and all of the jokes.

    Overall, this had a classic feel to it like a Season 4 or 5 episode and didn't have anything really bad in it. 4/5 for the poll.

    Loved the teacher being suicidal after hearing Stan. "Life... dismissed."

    Stan's phone call were without a doubt the highlight of the episode. It reminded me of the sub-plot where Steve and his friends did the morning announcements at school.

    The first AD episode from this current season that I watched. (Happy, @Knifey_Spoony, if you ever come back on?)

    I thought it was okay. The Roger main plot felt unoriginal and boring, until the fake tribe got discovered. That's when it picked up.

    The Steve subplot was much more entertaining, and I thought it would have made a better main plot.

    Eh... it's a 3/5
